This study will evaluate the main effects of daily vs. weekly feedback and contingent vs. non-contingent incentives for increasing walking behavior among overweight and obese adults.
The aim of the study is to determine if time-restricted feeding (TRF) is an effective dietary strategy to weight loss after 8 weeks intervention. TRF will be compared with an intervention without restriction in time for feeding. Both strategies will be with caloric restriction.
The Pediatric Metabolic Syndrome Study is an observational study being conducted at the Medical University of South Carolina to investigate cardiometabolic risk parameters in obese subjects ages 4 to 21. A detailed assessment is performed on eligible subjects including fasting labwork, anthropometrics, nutrition analysis, body composition testing, echocardiography, and carotid IMT measurements.
The study focuses on the influence of polymorphism in the FTO genes rs9939609 and PPARᵧ Pro12Ala, oxidative stress and systemic inflammation on changes in body composition and rest metabolism induced by HIIT and continuous aerobic programs in obese or overweight individuals.
The findings of this study will establish the feasibility and efficacy of B'N Fit POWER and given the wide presence of MSHP, MMCC and other afterschool programs, there is significant potential for dissemination of B'N Fit POWER to many other clinic-community partnership sites enabling the development of a larger grant that will test the effectiveness and dissemination process to several schools in the Bronx. The translation of a traditional clinical-based weight-loss intervention to adapting and implementing such an intervention in a real-world school setting is more relevant and sustainable for advancing a culture of health and promoting diabetes risk reduction in Bronx youth.
The CMUBCS is a birth cohort study located in Shenyang, China. Its initial aim is to facilitate research on understanding the interplay between genes and environmental factors on disease etiology. Data are collected regarding environmental factors, family and lifestyle, clinical experimental outcomes and imaging results of pregnant women and children from birth to 18 years old. Biological samples including blood and tissue samples are also collected from the children and their parents.
The purpose of this project is to test, for the first time, a reverse diet in adults with current or prior overweight/obesity (Ow/Ob). Weight-reduced adults with current or prior Ow/Ob will be randomized to a reverse diet or "standard care" control (CON) intervention for 12 weeks. Eligible participants will have lost >10% body mass. The reverse diet group will receive personalized caloric intake goals, increasing 2-3%/week. The CON group will receive standard weight maintenance recommendations with matched contact. At baseline and week 12, resting energy expenditure (REE), body mass and composition, subjective appetite, and food intake behaviors will be evaluated. In addition to the pre- and post-intervention measures, body mass and adherence to reverse diet will be monitored weekly.
Excessive eating of energy-dense foods and obesity are risk factors for a range of cancers. There are programs to reduce intake of these foods and weight loss, but the effects of the programs rarely last. This project tests whether altering the value of cancer-risk foods can create lasting change, and uses neuroimaging to compare the efficacy of two programs to engage the valuation system on a neural level. Results will establish the pathways through which the programs work and suggest specific treatments for individuals based on a personalized profile.
The BEFORE study ((B) EFficacy Of REfigura) is designed to demonstrate the efficacy of REFIGURA®. It is a double-blind, randomized, monocentric study.
Healthy Together is a program that promotes the achievement and maintenance of healthy weights in children and their families.
