This is to pilot test a weight loss intervention in obese patients with poorly controlled asthma. Obesity is a risk factor for the development of asthma (approximately 250,000 cases per year of asthma in the U.S. are related to obesity). Our ultimate purpose is to test the hypothesis that weight loss through an intensive life style intervention will improve asthma control. But we first need to establish whether our weight loss intervention is effective in patients with ...
Very low-carbohydrate ketogenic diet may have beneficial metabolic and weight loss effects, however, adhering to this diet may be challenging. Keyto is a self-monitoring and app-enhanced intervention to help individuals learn about and monitor their breath acetone (a measure of ketosis) levels to promote dietary change and weight loss. The purpose of this research is to test the Keyto self-monitoring + app intervention against a "standard of care" weight loss dietary app (Weigh...
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 loss therapy is working either after 3 or 7 weekly sessions of therapy and 2. For those who haven't lost the expected amount of weight, whether it is more effective to add packaged meals to the traditional weight loss therapy or to change to an enhanced version of beha...
This study will examine whether, compared to a standard, low-fat, calorie-restricted diet intervention, the clinic-supported Ideal Protein weight loss method will result in greater weight loss and improvement in cardiometabolic risk factors over 3 months among obese adults. We expect to learn more about the impact of different food and nutrient combinations on the body and weight loss.
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.
Many behavioral weight loss interventions have been developed, but still have significant limitations in terms of achieving clinically significant, sustained weight loss. A recent study incorporating Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in a randomized clinical trial resulted in participants who attained significantly greater 12-month weight loss in the ACT arm than those assigned to standard behavioral treatment, suggesting that ACT may have the potential to improve behavio...
Excess weight is a major risk factor underlying leading causes of death globally, including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and some cancers. Among participants assigned to the same lifestyle intervention arms in prior weight loss randomized controlled trials, large inter-individual differences in weight loss success have been observed, ranging from >50lbs of weight loss to >10lbs of weight gain. Both genetic and non-genetic factors underlying differential adherence an...
The proposed single arm 6 mo. trial will assess the impact of weight loss and fat loss due to a multicomponent remotely-delivered lifestyle intervention on ovulation rates and time-to-ovulation in overweight and obese women with anovulatory infertility caused by PCOS.
This study is investigating the changes in specific hormone levels in women age 30-45 after a 12 week weight loss intervention.
The purpose of this study is to compare the effect of a physical activity-enhanced behavioral weight loss intervention, compared to a standard behavioral weight loss intervention in African American women.
There are few studies that look at sustained weight loss in the adolescent population. This study uses a multidisciplinary approach along with pharmacotherapy (use of Meridia)to motivate and establish behavior changes in adolescents (12-18yo) during the first phase of the study. The second phase will have those who have lost at least 5% BMI to be randomized into one of two groups. This first group will have no intervention and will be followed at 3 and 6 months to asse...
The purpose of this study is to enroll approximately 450 subjects to see if a behavioral weight management program is successful in helping military female personnel who are pregnant or post-partum to manage their weight during and after their pregnancy.
A randomized controlled trial aiming to investigate the effects and possible interactions of diet induced weight loss and lactation on cardiometabolic profile
This clinical trial examines whether the addition of individual sessions of a motivational intervention to a state-of-the art behavioral group weight loss intervention for overweight women with Type 2 diabetes improves the weight losses and glycemic control outcomes.
This project aims to conduct a unique, community-based intervention consisting of a randomized trial of a culturally-appropriate weight loss intervention for overweight Latino children in Milwaukee. The intervention promotes lifestyle changes through a low weight loss regimen, one or more physical activities ranging from soccer to hip-hop dance, and dietary counseling including cooking classes for parents. In addition to weight reduction for overweight Latino children, the pr...
This study will assess the effects of weight loss on sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) in 120 obese, type 2 diabetics with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) from four Look AHEAD sites. Changes in SDB will be compared between subjects randomized to weight loss (Lifestyle Intervention Group) versus non-weight loss (Diabetes Education and Support Group) conditions within the context of the Look AHEAD Study. Weight loss is frequently recommended for obese patients with OSA, but the empi...
The goal of this project is to test whether a phone and mail-based program designed to help people who have recently lost weight helps them keep the weight off over a 2 year period.
The purpose of the study is to examine the changes of sleep during weight loss and weight loss management. The research staff will also obtain data on sleep disturbances, insomnia symptoms, risk of sleep apnea, circadian preferences, weight loss self-efficacy, emotional eating, executive functioning, loneliness and social isolation, and patients' beliefs about how sleep might impact their weight control or vice versa.
This study is a randomized clinical trial comparing state-of-the-art, standard behavior therapy for weight loss (SBT) with a maintenance tailored treatment (MTT) with varied behavioral prescriptions, goals, and formats over time. The overall hypothesis in the study is that the two treatment approaches will show different patterns of weight loss over time, and in particular that the MTT approach would be associated with better long-term maintenance of weight loss.
The goal of the proposed research is to assess the effects of a sequential combination of lifestyle and well-being intervention on weight loss and psychological well-being. It is hypothesized that psychological well-being promotion as an adjunct to life-style intervention will outperform life style intervention alone in promoting weight loss and psychological well-being in obese individuals.
Limited interventional human studies suggest that probiotic supplementation may be a beneficial strategy for promoting weight loss when added to a nutritional intervention via their effects on lipid absorption and metabolic signaling molecules. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of addition of a probiotic supplementation to a weight loss intervention on body weight, body composition and overall health in overweight adults.
This study will evaluate the effectiveness of financial incentives and messaging tailored to individual goals and aspirations to promote and sustain weight loss. This is a 2-arm randomized controlled trial that will recruit eligible employees at a large university to participate in a 3-month weight loss program, followed by a 3-month follow-up period. The primary outcome will be change in autonomous motivation for weight loss. The study hypothesis is that intervention group pa...
Due to a higher risk of complications, obese and overweight patients with macromastia are in Denmark prohibited mammoplasty , as BMI must be within normal range, i.e. BMI < 25 kg/m2. The study is a pilot study with a diet intervention group and no control group. The intervention is a 12 week low energy diet pre-operative weight loss program investigating if this will result in weight loss making the overweight and obese patients eligible for breast reduction surgery i.e. BMI
Although bariatric surgery is highly effective for inducing significant weight loss and resolution of comorbidities, weight regain following surgery is a common problem. This pilot study will test the feasibility and acceptability of an intervention designed to help bariatric surgery patients maintain weight loss. Findings from this pilot will provide the foundation for a randomized controlled trial to evaluate the efficacy of the intervention.
