HealtheTech Lifestyle Program

NCT ID: NCT00146510


Title
HealtheLifestyle Behavioral Intervention Clinical Trial
Purpose
The purpose of the study is to determine the efficacy of resting metabolic rate (RMR) using BodyGem and BalanceLog in helping overweight and obese individuals manage their weight.
Details
The study plans are to develop and test the efficacy of a practical, structured, and time-limited behavioral intervention (HealtheLifestyle Program) as a supplement to standard HealtheTech products. Approximately 130 participants will be recruited and randomized to either the HealtheTech Program (focusing on calorie and exercise goals using the BalanceLog for tracking), the HealtheLifestyle Program (using step counters, monthly email letters and calls providing information on activity, nutrition, and weight loss), or a delayed treatment program (after 3 months undergo the intervention above).
