This study aimed to perform a preliminary investigation of the impact of combined hormonal contraceptive (CHC) use on weight loss during an 18‐month behavioral weight‐loss trial.
Adults (n = 170; 18‐55 years; BMI 27‐42 kg/m2) received a weight‐loss intervention that included a reduced‐calorie diet, a progressive exercise prescription, and group‐based behavioral support. Premenopausal...
This study aimed to evaluate the impact of timing of exercise initiation on weight loss within a behavioral weight loss program.
Adults with overweight or obesity (N = 170; age 18‐55 years; BMI 25‐42 kg/m2; 83.5% women) were enrolled in an 18‐month behavioral weight loss program consisting of a reduced‐calorie diet, exercise, and group‐based support. The standard group (STD) received...
The objective of this study was to compare physical activity energy expenditure (PAEE) and total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) in successful weight loss maintainers (WLM) with normal weight controls (NC) and controls with overweight/obesity (OC).
Participants were recruited in three groups: WLM (n = 25, BMI 24.1 ± 2.3 kg/m2; maintaining ≥ 13.6‐kg weight loss for ≥ 1 year),...
The objective of this study was to compare patterns of objectively measured moderate‐to‐vigorous physical activity (MVPA, ≥ 3.00 metabolic equivalents [METs]), light‐intensity physical activity (LPA, 1.50‐2.99 METs), and sedentary behavior (SB, < 1.50 METs) in successful weight loss maintainers (WLMs), normal weight controls (NC), and controls with overweight/obesity (OC).
