This study aimed the effect of the Accupedo pedometer smartphone app intervention, with goal setting of walking prescription of 10,000 steps per day, in overweight adults.
Compare the Effect of Different Physical Programs on the Body Composition of Adult Women With a Total Body Fat Percentage ≥ 30 % at the Beginning of the Test.
Prior research suggests that sedentary behavior is detrimental to health, independent of exercise activity. Sedentary behavior is defined as behaviors that involve low levels of energy expenditure ≤1.5 metabolic equivalents (including sitting, watching TV, reading, and driving). Due to the high burden of sedentary behaviors in modern-day societies, this has potential implications for novel intervention strategies to reduce sitting (outside of regular exercise activity) and improve health. In addition, the modern workplace fosters sedentary behavior, and sedentary jobs now make up more than 80% of the workforce. The goal of this project is to implement interventions to reduce sedentary behavior at work and evaluate their impact on physiologic parameters and markers of disease. Specifically, the investigators/study team will use direct measurement of vascular endothelial function as one of our outcomes. This is important since conduit artery endothelial function, assessed by arterial flow-mediated dilation (FMD), is a powerful indicator of vascular inflammation and predictor of future cardiovascular events.
The aim of the study is the assessment of the effectiveness of medical nutrition therapy (MNT) among obese patients, including a well-balanced low-calories diet, an individual dietary counseling conducted by dietitians and supported by telemedicine (T) or hypnotic suggestions (HS). The study will cover a group of 90 adult patients, both sexes, with obesity (BMI ≥30 kg/m^2) undergoing MNT a dietetic treatment. Three arms are planned in the study scheme, according to the scheme: Group 1 - individual MNT (30 people); Group 2 -individual MNT and T (30 people); Group 3 - individual MNT and HS (30 people). The authors hope that the results of the study will allow to develop a new model of the most effective management of obesity, resulting in weight reduction and maintaining this effect over time. The results obtained during the study will also allow to assess the impact of the therapy applied on lifestyle changes, dietary habits and the knowledge about the disease among obese patients.
The trial is designed to provide the empirical data to compare the efficacy and safety of the invisa-RED Technology Elite Low-level Laser Therapy (LLLT) device with a sham device when used in the treatment of individuals in order to reduce body fat and improve aesthetics. At the conclusion of the trial; the change in body fat percentage, total body weight, and inches lost of the two groups will be statistically analyzed to determine the efficacy of the invisa-RED Technology Elite when used for body fat (adipose tissue) loss and/or aesthetics therapy.
The treatment of childhood obesity is challenging. Although dietary and physical activity recommendations are widely known, the willingness to change lifestyles within the family is not easy to be achieved. Motivational interviewing has been shown as a possibly effective method to increase adherence to dietary recommendations in the obese adult. There is scarce evidence showing whether implementing a motivational interview in obese children could be effective. The aim of this clinical trial is assessing the effect of a motivational interview, coordinated between the clinical and primary care services on 8 to 14 years old obese children.
The present study aimed to determine the effect of different interventions on lean body mass maintenance under weight loss conditions in overweight and obese premenopausal women. Three study groups were implemented: (1) Protein supplementation (only) group (2) Protein supplementation and walking intervention (3) Protein supplementation, walking and WB-EMS-application. All protocols were applied for 16 week of intervention. A energy deficit of 500 kcal/d was intended however while group (1) focus consistently on energy restriction (500 kcal/d), in group (2) and (3) a combined physical activity (i.e. walking with a volume representing 250 kcal/d) and energy restriction (250 kcal/d) protocol was applied. Total protein uptake including protein supplementation was calculated to average around 1.2 g/kg body mass per day in groups (1) and 1.5 g/kg body mass/d in group (2) and (3). WB-EMS was applied 1.5x 20 min/week (i.e. each Tuesday and every second Thursday). Primary study endpoint was LBM as determined by Dual Energy x-Ray Absorptiometry.
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of an antenatal obesity treatment on gestational weight gain when integrated into Philadelphia WIC.
This trial studies the effectiveness of patient navigators in facilitating weight management in obese participants. Health coaches or patient navigators may help more participants take part in weight management programs.
This study aims to explore the determinants of cognitive impairment among Indonesian geriatrics in an Old Age Home.
