Bottom Line: The goal was to lose 0.5 kg per week by reducing 300-500 kcal/day and by increasing physical activities.Weight and serum triglyceride and free fatty acid concentrations in obese group decreased significantly with intervention.Active participation, realistic weight loss goal setting, and weight gain after high school graduation not during childhood were identified as key factors for successful weight loss.

ABSTRACT

Background/objectives: The objectives were to investigate the effect of a 12-wk intervention with behavioral modification on clinical characteristics and dietary intakes of young and otherwise healthy obese and to identify factors for successful weight loss. The goal was to lose 0.5 kg per week by reducing 300-500 kcal/day and by increasing physical activities.

Subjects and methods: Forty four obese subjects (BMI > 25) and 19 normal weight subjects (BMI 18.5-23) finished the 12-week intervention. Obese subjects participated in 5 group educations and 6 individual counseling sessions. Normal weight subjects attended 6 individual counseling sessions for evaluations of dietary intake and exercise pattern. Anthropometric and clinical characteristics and 3-day dietary records were evaluated at baseline and week12.

Results: Weight and serum triglyceride and free fatty acid concentrations in obese group decreased significantly with intervention. Intakes of energy, fat, and cholesterol decreased significantly in the obese. Active participation, realistic weight loss goal setting, and weight gain after high school graduation not during childhood were identified as key factors for successful weight loss.

Conclusions: The 12-week intervention with behavioral modification resulted in reduced energy and fat intakes and led to significant weight loss and improvements of clinical characteristics in the obese. The finding that those who became obese during childhood lost less weight indicates the importance of 'early' intervention.

Figure 1: Study design and subjects

Mentions: The study was conducted from September 2009 to June 2011. One hundred fifty-four subjects aged 19 to 45 years were screened using questionnaires, and 86 subjects were excluded from the study (Fig. 1). Subjects who were taking dietary supplements or medications known to affect serum lipid profiles were excluded from the study. Subjects with a high Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) score or any chronic disease, including endocrine, hepatic, renal, thyroid, or cardiac dysfunction, were also excluded from the study. Subjects who did not submit a 3-day dietary record at baseline were excluded from the study as well.
