Clinical Trial Summary

The implementation of therapeutic cooking workshops during the management of obesity in hospitals is now well accepted and recognized as of potential interest on the nutritional level but also cognitive and social (DESPORT, 2015; DAGONEAU, 2008). The literature shows that adults participating in cooking workshops are satisfied and acquire cooking skills potentially useful for improving their health (WOLFSON, BLEICH, 2015; CARAHER, 1999). REICKS (2014, 2018) and REES (2012) point out, however, the low methodological quality of most of the studies conducted and, in fact, the effectiveness of therapeutic cooking workshops has not been formally demonstrated by rigorous randomized studies. The Care and Prevention Research Unit (CRESP) of the Manhès Hospital Center then built a multicenter research protocol to demonstrate the impact of cooking workshops in the care of patients with obesity. The protocol involves 6 hospitals: Georges Pompidou European Hospital (HEGP) University Hospital Center (department of Prof S. CZERNICHOW), PITIE SALPETRIERE University Hospital Center (department of Prof J.M. OPPERT), Cognacq Jay Hospital Center, Forcilles Hospital Center, Bligny Hospital Center and Manhes Hospital Center . The CuisTO protocol was selected by the PHRIP Jury of the DGOS (General Direction of the Care Offer French Ministry of Health) in 2019 as a high priority project. The main objective of this research is to evaluate the effectiveness of remote cooking workshops in the management of obesity, through two methods of setting up therapeutic cooking workshops (so-called "classic" workshops and workshops in the form of "culinary challenges") to improve dietary balance in the context of the care of adult patients living with obesity. Dietary balance will be estimated by compliance with the recommendations of the latest National Health Nutrition Program (PNNS-4 2019-2023), "judged" by the PNNS-GS2 score, the consumption of fruits and vegetables, the frequency of cooking and a reduction in the consumption of ultra-processed dishes that have already been prepared. This is a multicentre, open-label, controlled, comparative intervention study with sequential randomization in clusters (clusters) of the "stepped wedge" type
