In sum, excess body weight and inactivity have emerged as strong avoidable causes of postmenopausal breast cancer, with the greatest potential for primary prevention occurring during the premenopausal years. However, surprisingly, no study to date has examined the effects of a standard behavioral weight loss intervention on breast cancer risk markers in premenopausal women. Understanding the effects of weight loss in premenopausal women is a critical next step in existing research and will inform the development of future breast cancer primary prevention programs. The purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility of recruiting, treating, and retaining 20 overweight/obese women in a 12-week randomized control trial examining feasibility and effects of a behavioral weight loss program on breast cancer risk markers in premenopausal women. Participants will be randomly assigned to either a 12-week comprehensive behavioral weight loss program (n=10) or control condition (n=10). All women will be assessed at baseline and after 3 months of treatment.

The purpose of this study is to learn how to personalize weight loss programs. In this research we will study: 1. Whether a weight loss counselor should decide if the traditional weight...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a modified behavioral treatment for weight loss that includes one-on-one treatment for individuals struggling to lose weight is associated...
This is a research study designed to examine the effectiveness of an obesity medication (orlistat) given in addition to behavioral weight loss therapy. Participants will be obese monolingu...
The purpose is to examine the additional effect of either yoga or resistance exercise on weight loss weight combined with a standard behavioral weight loss intervention.
The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of Weight Watchers, brief behavioral treatment, and a combination treatment. We hypothesize that a combination treatment will achi...
The objective of this study was to test whether behavioral weight loss (BWL) intervention decreases headaches in women with comorbid migraine and overweight or obesity.
Weight loss can be achieved through a variety of modalities, but long-term maintenance of lost weight is much more challenging. Obesity interventions typically result in early weight loss followed by ...
Treatments for adolescents with overweight/obesity demonstrate mixed success, which may be due to a lack of consideration for developmental changes during this period. Potential developmental differen...
Weight loss is recommended as first-line therapy for many chronic illnesses, including obesity. Most patients who do successfully lose weight are unable to maintain their reduced weight. Recent resear...
Cognitive and Self-regulatory Mechanisms of Obesity Study (COSMOS): Study protocol for a randomized controlled weight loss trial examining change in biomarkers, cognition, and self-regulation across two behavioral treatments.
Obesity is a global epidemic, yet successful interventions are rare. Up to 60% of people fail to achieve clinically meaningful, short-term weight loss (5-10% of start weight), whereas up to 72% are un...
Agents that increase energy expenditure and weight loss by neural and chemical regulation. Beta-adrenergic agents and serotoninergic drugs have been experimentally used in patients with non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) to treat obesity.
A status with BODY WEIGHT that is grossly above the acceptable or desirable weight, usually due to accumulation of excess FATS in the body. The standards may vary with age, sex, genetic or cultural background. In the BODY MASS INDEX, a BMI greater than 30.0 kg/m2 is considered obese, and a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2 is considered morbidly obese (MORBID OBESITY).
The condition of weighing two, three, or more times the ideal weight, so called because it is associated with many serious and life-threatening disorders. In the BODY MASS INDEX, morbid obesity is defined as having a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2.
A sub-PHENOTYPE of obese individuals who have a risk for CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES between that of healthy individuals with normal weight and unhealthy individuals with obesity.
BODY MASS INDEX in children (ages 2-12) and in adolescents (ages 13-18) that is grossly above the recommended cut-off for a specific age and sex. For infants less than 2 years of age, obesity is determined based on standard weight-for-length percentile measures.
Endocrine disorders are grouped into two categories: hormone imbalance - when a gland produces too much or too little of an endocrine hormone development of lesions (such as nodules or tumors) in the endocrine system, which may or may not affect...
