Promoting Long-term Behavior Change to Reduce CVD Risk

Trial ID or NCT#



not recruiting iconNOT RECRUITING


Once intervention class or staff contact is removed, obese adults participating in behavioral weight-loss programs often give up healthy eating habits and regain weight. We examined whether taste-based goal setting, which minimizes perceived deprivation by promoting taste and moderation, would sustain long-term reductions in saturated fat and body mass index (BMI).
