This study is designed as an observational trial. The objective of this study is to follow-up with participants 3 years after completion of an 18-month comprehensive behavioral weight loss intervention. Outcomes of interest include change in body weight, body composition, physical activity, energy intake, and sleep. In addition, investigators will explore the associations between current physical activity, sleep, and energy intake patterns and body weight regulation.
A Roux-en-Y gastric bypass will be performed in all the cases. Patients will be randomized according the limb lengths: - Group 1: Alimentary limb (AL) 150cm and biliopancreatic limb (BPL) 100cm - Group 2: AL 100cm and BPL 150cm Weight loss will be evaluated 1 year after surgery
The investigators are trying to better understand how bariatric surgery leads to weight loss, and the role of bacteria that live in the gut in making this happen.
The study team is currently conducting a pragmatic, community-based assessor-blinded randomized controlled trial (RCT) in overweight and obese adults > 50 years with knee OA in both urban and rural counties in North Carolina. As the participants randomized to the 18 month diet and exercise group in the WE-CAN study successfully complete the intervention (≥ 5% weight loss), the study team has the unique opportunity to evaluate the effectiveness of a theoretically-based tapered weight maintenance intervention. Eligible participants will be randomized to either the weight-loss maintenance or health education attention control groups.
This is a randomized control trial testing the effect of walnut supplementation on prostate cancer progression in 50 men with biopsy confirmed prostate cancer and planning to undergo RP. Patients consented to the study will be randomly assigned to either continue their usual diets (control arm) or to the walnut arm for 6-10 weeks depending on the window between their consent date and the date for RP.
The Exercise and Obesity Health Promotion (PESO) program is a randomized controlled trial designed to analyze the effects of a lifestyle intervention in weight management and health-related parameters of overweight and obese premenopausal women
This study is an ancillary study to the UPLIFT trial (NCT03074643) to evaluate the effects of diet composition (i.e., amount of protein and carbohydrate) during a 6-month weight loss intervention and 12-months of follow-up on bone phenotypes in obese older adults. Participants will receive either a protein or carbohydrate supplement along with a behavioral weight loss intervention.
The purpose of this research is to develop a coordinated program (Dyad Plus) that would help to facilitate self-monitoring, positive communication, joint problem solving, and social support to increase physical activity, healthy eating, and weight loss. Participants of the Brenner FIT (Families In Training) pediatric weight management program and their parent/guardian will co-enroll in weight loss programs. Parents/guardians will receive the components of By Design Essentials
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.
This study involves an evaluation of the role of domestic partner support in a comprehensive weight loss initiation and maintenance program.
