This study is designed to compare two types of snacks (almonds or a cereal-based snack), eaten between meals, on measures of appetite, including appetitive hormones, self-reported feelings of hunger and fullness, and food intake at a buffet meal or in the home environment. The investigators hypothesize that the acute responses of appetitive hormones to a meal challenge protocol will differ between almond and cereal-based snacks based on multivariate models of satiety that will be predictive of ad libitum food intake at a dinner meal as part of the meal challenge protocol. Further, the investigators will estimate if, under free-living conditions, self-selected and self-reported food intake will show appropriate energy compensation for the added calories of the snacks, and determine if one type of snack is superior to the other in this regard.
This is a feasibility study to gain an understanding of the willingness of women with a history of early stage breast cancer and current obesity to enroll in a weight-loss study, accept an assigned intervention (bariatric surgery with lifestyle intervention or lifestyle intervention alone), and comply with the study plan for 1 year. If there is successful enrollment in this study, the plan is to use what is learned in this study to design a larger, longer-term clinical trial to look at the effect of weight loss and incidence of cancer recurrence.
This study will test the relative efficacy and effectiveness of the combination of naltrexone and bupropion (NB) medication as a treatment for binge-eating disorder (BED) in patients with obesity. This is a controlled test of whether, amongst non-responders to acute treatments, NB medication results in superior outcomes compared with placebo.
This study evaluates the efficacy of a multidisciplinary intervention (diet, exercise, motivational support and homeopathy or placebo) for overweight and obesity in Mexican adolescents. Half of study participants will receive the multidisciplinary intervention plus Calcarea carbonica ostrearum, a homeopathic medicine, while the other half will receive the same multidisciplinary intervention plus placebo.
The study aims to: 1) investigate the effects of cognitive training (CT) and combined CT and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) on food intake and 2) to further understand its neuropsychological and neurophysiological basis (i.e. EEG) as well as its impact in endocannabinoids (EC) in a sample of morbidly obese patients seeking for a gastric bypass surgery
The proposed study will evaluate the efficacy of a family-based obesity prevention intervention in increasing physical activity and improving the quality of dietary intake among Hispanic Youth. Additional primary outcomes that will be examined include drug use and sexual risk behaviors. Secondary outcomes include examining the effects of family functioning and BMI. The knowledge expected to be gained in this study will have strong implications for prevention as well as contribute to the reduction of obesity-related health disparities seen in Hispanic youth.
Clinical intervention trial for pediatric obese patients in Mexico city. Individual will be included to a 6 week trial of nutritional, physical activity, psicological and educational intervention. Anthropometric measurments, blood tests and food 24-hour recolection will be measured. Physical activity and gait monitoring will be assesed during a repeated 6-min walk test in every visit. Follow up visits will be scheduled after intevention at 3 and 6 months.
Investigating the impact of self-monitoring feedback for health behaviors
Farming for Life aims to determine the health impacts of providing weekly "prescriptions" of fresh organic vegetables to adults living with or at risk of type 2 diabetes. Over 4 years, up to 400 adults diagnosed with or at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes will be engaged for 3 months each, and receive weekly doses of locally-grown organic vegetable prescriptions. The end-points for comparison will be changes in blood pressure, weight, waist circumference, glycemic control [defined as Time in Range (TIR) (70-140mg/dl)] using continuous glucose monitoring (CGM), and HbA1c levels (a measure of long-term blood glucose level control) after 3 months compared to baseline measurements. Additional assessments will be made on the impact of the organic vegetable prescriptions on food security. At an optional Visit 13, offered 6 months after Visit 1, an additional health screening will be conducted. Prevalence and risk of type 2 diabetes in the US is disproportionately high among low income and minority groups and is exasperated by high levels of food insecurity. The investigators hypothesize that improving access to fresh organic vegetables will result in measurable health outcomes for adults with type 2 diabetes and those at risk of developing the condition. This represents a promising and potentially cost-effective strategy for improving diabetes outcomes at a population level, particularly among low income, minority populations with type 2 diabetes.
This study aims to compare the difference in staple usage and post-operative GERD (heartburn) between patients that had an endoscope used versus patients that had a suction calibration system used on them during "laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy" (LSG).
