Stanford Healthy Heart Study
Trial ID or NCT#
People with elevated blood pressure are at higher risk of having a heart attack or stroke than people with lower blood pressure. Losing a modest amount of weight-such as 15 or 20 pounds-can reduce the risk of having a heart attack or stroke. However, it can often be a struggle to maintain weight loss over time. This study examines whether two behavioral weight-management programs can help people maintain weight loss over time. In this study, 346 adults will be randomly assigned (like flipping a coin) to one of the 12-month programs and followed for 36 months (i.e., 3 years) to see how their body weight may change.
