Weight Loss Physical Disabilities

Weight Loss Physical Disabilities

The objective of this study is to compare weight loss (6 mos.) and maintenance (18 mos.) between an individual home visit intervention (IH) and an intervention delivered remotely via video conferencing to groups of overweight/obese adults with Mobility Related Disabilities (MRDs) in their homes (GR). The primary aim will be to compare weight loss (0-6 mos.) between the two interventions (IH vs. GR). Secondarily, the study team will compare the mean weight loss from 0-18 mos., the proportion of participants achieving >=5% weight loss from baseline, changes in cardiovascular risk factors and quality of life, and conduct a cost analysis. In addition, factors that will be explored include the influence of behavioral session attendance, compliance with the recommendations for diet (energy intake, number of entrees/shakes, servings of fruits/vegetables), Physical Activity (PA, min of moderate vigorous PA, min sedentary time), and self-monitoring of diet and PA, self-efficacy for dietary change and PA, dietary self-regulation, social support for diet/PA, barriers to PA, sleep and medications on weight loss at 6 and 18 mos.
