Australian researchers analyzed 75 adults with overweight or obesity, ages 18 to 75, and found that those who participated in one of two habit-based weight-loss intervention programs lost more weight and had improvements in body mass index, weekly exercise and reported well-being, anxiety and depression from baseline, compared with the waitlist control group. The findings in the International Journal of Obesity revealed an at least 5% reduction in baseline body weight in 65% of individuals from the two intervention groups.
