Small Changes and Lasting Effects (SCALE) Trial: the formation of a weight loss behavioral intervention using EVOLVE.

Phillips-Caesar EG, Winston G, Peterson JC, Wansink B, Devine CM, Kanna B, Michelin W, Wethington E, Wells M, Hollenberg J, Charlson ME - Contemp Clin Trials (2015)

Bottom Line: Phase II results shaped the recruitment and retention strategy for the RCT, as well as the final intervention.The RCT results are currently under analysis.The present study seeks to determine if a SC approach combined with a PA/SA intervention will result in greater weight loss at 12 months in Black and Hispanic adults compared to a SC approach alone.

Mentions: The aim of the pilot phase was two-fold: 1) to evaluate the feasibility of conducting the small change intervention in the target population using community health worker; and 2) to compare differences in adherence at 12 weeks among participants who were randomized to making two small changes at enrollment (eating and lifestyle physical activity) versus a staggered implementation (Figure 1).
