Short-term weight loss patterns, baseline predictors, and longer-term follow-up within a randomized controlled trial.

Yank V, Xiao L, Wilson SR, Stafford RS, Rosas LG, Ma J - Obesity (Silver Spring) (2013)

Bottom Line: Discriminant analysis identified baseline characteristics that best differentiated between clusters.On discriminant analysis, the modest cluster was most differentiated from other clusters by high friend encouragement for dietary change, high obesity-related problems, and low physical well-being.The moderate-and-steady cluster was differentiated by lower physical activity, family encouragement, and depression symptoms.

Canonical Scores on Dimensions 1 and 2Each ellipse indicates an 80% confidence ellipse for the mean of each cluster, which is in the center of the ellipse. Ellipses 1, 2, and 3 correspond to the modest, moderate-and-steady, and substantial-and-early clusters, respectively. Each dot represents an individual participant. Individual dots (participants) of one color belong to the ellipse (cluster) of the same color.

Figure 3: Canonical Scores on Dimensions 1 and 2Each ellipse indicates an 80% confidence ellipse for the mean of each cluster, which is in the center of the ellipse. Ellipses 1, 2, and 3 correspond to the modest, moderate-and-steady, and substantial-and-early clusters, respectively. Each dot represents an individual participant. Individual dots (participants) of one color belong to the ellipse (cluster) of the same color.

Mentions: Discriminant analysis identified two statistically significant combinations of the eight candidate variables–i.e., dimensions–that differentiated between weight loss patterns, with Dimension 1 differentiating more between clusters than Dimension 2 (Table 3 and Figure 3). On Dimension 1, baseline characteristics with standardized canonical coefficients of greatest magnitude were friend encouragement for dietary change (0.66), obesity-related problems (0.53), physical activity (–0.41), and physical well-being (–0.40). On Dimension 2, characteristics with the coefficients of greatest magnitude were physical activity (0.58), family encouragement for dietary change (0.57), depression symptoms (0.54), and body size dissatisfaction (0.40).
