Effects of Four Maintenance Programs on the Long-Term Management of Obesity.
Perri, Michael G.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v56 n4 p529-34 Aug 1988
Evaluated effectiveness of posttreatment programs on weight loss maintenance. Assigned mildly and moderately obese adults (N=123) to either behavior therapy only or to behavior therapy combined with therapist-contact posttreatment maintenance programs which varied by use of social influence and/or aerobic exercise. Found all four posttreatment conditions yielded significantly greater long-term weight losses than did behavior therapy alone. (Author/NB)
