WeightControl.com: What are the main findings?
Response: There are two main findings.
Response: Regulation of cues can be considered an alternative model for behavioral weight loss, as there was no difference between groups at 24 months. Furthermore, we identified that individuals who are highly food cue responsive, respond better to roc compared to behavioral weight loss. Individuals who are high on food cue responsiveness typically have uncontrolled eating and ruminate (think) about food a lot of the time.
WeightControl.com: What should readers take away from your report?
Response: Further research is needed to explore factors that can be used to identify programs that will be more effective for an individual. (personalized medicine)
WeightControl.com: What recommendations do you have for future research as a result of this work?
Response: Current programs for weight loss are not effective for those who are high on food cue responsiveness. Roc is a model that specifically targets food cue responsivity and this initial study shows the efficacy of regulation of cues.
