The projects funded by this grant, primarily focus on environmental factors that promote weight-gain in the general human population, and how to modify these factors, to prevent further weight-gain in the future. In the coming years, the researchers at the University of Colorado-HSC hope to gain an understanding as to how small changes in diet and physical activity can be achieved and sustained to prevent weight-gain.
This study will evaluate the effectiveness of an environmental worksite intervention to reduce obesity among hospital employees.
The purpose of this project is to establish a Center of Excellence in Research on Obesity that will focus on severe obesity. The prevalence of severe obesity (i.e., Class 2 and 3 obesity; body mass index > 35 kg/m2 and 40 kg/m2) is increasing more rapidly than is overweight and Class 1 obesity. Treatment guidelines for severe obesity are uncertain. Three novel hypotheses regarding the pathogenesis of severe obesity will be tested: a) using non-invasive methods to measure ene...
Concomitant interventions included lifestyle modification with a personally tailored program of diet as detailed below and physical activity adjusted for age and specific physical limitations, targeting engagement in physical activity of at least 150 minutes/week. Lipid lowering and or blood pressure lowering drugs were prescribed as needed according to guideline-assisted medical practice. Patients were seen by a physician every 3 month. The dietitian had a weekly meeting with ...
In spite of long-standing hypothesis relating diet and physical activity to several cancers, diet and physical activity-cancer associations have been modest at best and often inconsistent in epidemiologic studies. Investigators around the world have become increasingly concerned that error in the measurement of both diet and physical activity is compromising our ability to detect these important but modest associations. Most commonly used diet and physical activity assessment m...
The purpose of this study is to design a comprehensive nutrition and physical activity strategy to gain a broad understanding of the social and cultural role of food and physical activity among workers. Perspectives on innovative interventions that are socially feasible and culturally acceptable will also be obtained. Health lifestyle promotion interventions addressing portion control, healthy nutrition, and increasing physical activity will be tested.
Mediterranean (MED) diet, richer in plants/seeds (and dietary polyphenols) and low in processed meat (green-MED diet) may have a pronounced beneficial effect on age-related declines that begin in middle age, reflected by changes in adiposity, cognitive function, and cardiometabolic risk. The investigators hypothesize that long-term intake of this diet will significantly potentiate the effects of a healthy lifestyle (physical activity and Mediterranean diet), constituting a powe...
The coadyouvant efficacy of a combination of cosmetics ingredients in the form of a lipolytic cream with hypocaloric diet and physical activity were assessed and compared with with hypocaloric diet and physical activity for overweight and obesity treatment in patients.
The Feeding-Exercise Trial in Adolescents (FETA) was a randomised controlled intervention study designed to promote healthy weight in overweigh and obese adolescents through a professional-delivered, community-based program with active parents' involvement, focused on supervised physical activity and structured nutritional education. The aim of FETA was to test the efficacy of two intervention groups- physical activity in isolation and combination of physical activity with prov...
The prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) in young population continues to rise. Obesity is a chronic inflammatory disorder in which leptin, adiponectin and C reactive protein (CRP) play an important role. This study aimed to determine whether these adipokines are significant markers in defining MetS in pediatric population and to assess the effect of hypocaloric diet and physical activity on serum concentrations of adiponectine, leptin, and high sensitivity CRP (hs-CRP).
Obesity is currently considered an increasingly more severe social and health related problem. The World Health Organization qualified obesity as a chronic disease along with circulatory diseases, diabetes, cancer and respiratory diseases. The principal physiological methods of treatment for this disease are diet and exercise. The aim of the study is assess anhtropometric parameters, metabolic and proteomic profile and respiratory truck function in obese patients reducing body ...
Many teenagers have unhealthy eating habits and do not get enough physical activity. This study will examine whether the neighborhood in which a teenager lives affects his/her quality of life, physical activity levels, and eating habits.
The purpose of this research is to develop and test a mobile application called RELAX, which is designed to help with stress management during weight loss.
It is a multicenter, open-label, parallel-group, randomized controlled clinical trial, which is designed to enroll newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes patients with overweight or obesity. The patients are randomized to an intensive diet intervention (intermittent very-low -calorie diet), enhanced physical activity intervention (high-intensity interval training exercise prescription combined with resistance training) or standard education group (diabetes health education only, inclu...
Getting regular physical activity has many health benefits. Current physical activity programs often encourage people to track their physical activity as a way to motivate them to continue being physically active over time. However, not everyone enjoys physical activity, so tracking physical activity may not be very motivating. This research study will evaluate whether a new program—specifically designed to enhance people's enjoyment of physical activity—improves people's a...
The goal of the project is to develop, implement, and evaluate, through a randomized controlled trial at a worksite, an intervention to promote increased physical activity behavior and healthier eating behavior to reduce overweight and obesity among elementary school personnel.
Physical activity is thought to be a key element in preventing the obesity epidemic and the associated cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. However population-based studies directed at promoting physical activity in youth have shown limited success in obesity prevention. The aim of this study is to assess whether an intervention integrating socioecological changes, which has the potential to induce sustained changes in physical activity, prevents overweight and cardiovascular...
PACE Project researchers at UCSD are conducting a 2-year study to test the Men in Motion program. The study aims to learn more about how to help men lose weight, become more physically active, and improve their dietary habits. The study is sponsored by the National Institutes of Health.
In an attempt to challenge the increasing prevalence of childhood obesity, many programs have been executed in order to improve childrens' lifestyle. Programs involved either school, family or environmental measures. In most, success was only limited. The purpose of this trial is to examine the ability of a low-cost multi-component program to improve behavioral, diet and activity habits in both school, family and afternoon settings. Ths ultimate goal is to construct and assess...
This study will test a website for teens designed to help them improve both diet and physical activity. The website will have several components: educational messages, role model stories, goal setting, self-monitoring forms, problem solving, a monitored discussion forum, and diet and physical activity (PA) assessment questionnaires.
Though possibly cost-saving, there is little scientific evidence for the effectiveness and reasonable modality of internet-delivered physical activity interventions in primary prevention. The aim of the study is to compare the influence of different personal and IT-based service levels on the activity outcome of obese, sedentary persons to evaluate the minimum level of service necessary for a maximum increase in activity and weight reduction.
The purpose of this trial is to examine whether adding greater physical activity to standard family-based behavioral pediatric obesity treatment decreases the amount of visceral fat among treated overweight children.
An uncontrolled, non-randomized, open-plan, multi-centre study of treatment and therapeutic education in endocrinology-diabetes-Nutrition that seeks to assess the interest of an adapted physical activity educator for the implementation In place of physical activities in the management and prevention of overweight and obesity.
