Renal and Systemic Effects of Calorie Restriction in Type-2 Diabetes Patients with Abdominal Obesity: a Randomized Controlled Trial
In Type-2 diabetics with abdominal obesity, CR ameliorates glomerular hyperfiltration, insulin sensitivity and other cardiovascular risk factors, effects that might translate into long-term nephro- and cardio-protection.
Acceptance-based versus standard behavioral treatment for obesity: Results from the mind your health randomized controlled
Conclusions Behavioral weight loss outcomes can be improved by integrating self-regulation skills that are reflected in acceptance-based treatment, i.e., tolerating discomfort and reduction in pleasure, enacting commitment to valued behavior, and being mindfully aware during moments of decision-making
Conclusion: Adults with low BMRs did not gain more weight than did adults with high BMRs, implying that habitual differences in food intake or activity counterbalance variations in BMR as a risk factor for weight gain in a typical Western population
Do activity monitors increase physical activity in adults with overweight or obesity? A systematic review and meta-analysis
Conclusions Behavioral physical activity interventions with an activity monitor increase physical activity in adults with overweight or obesity. Also, adding an activity monitor to behavioral physical activity interventions appears to increase the effect on physical activity, although current evidence has not yet provided conclusive evidence for its effectiveness.
