A mail- and video-based weight loss trial in breast cancer survivors (2015)

Title:

A mail- and video-based weight loss trial in breast cancer survivors

Key words:

Research Institution:

Yale University

Location:

Researcher:

Melinda L. Irwin

Project Description:

Building on the Lifestyle, Exercise and Nutrition (LEAN) Study, Dr. Irwin will conduct a randomized controlled trial examining changes in body weight, diet, physical activity, and quality of life in overweight breast cancer survivors randomized to receiving the LEAN book and videos mailed to them compared to overweight breast cancer survivors randomized to wait-list control. Body weight 6 months after the study will be assessed to determine maintenance of weight loss, and predictors of weight loss at 6 and 12 months. Results from this study will provide evidence-based findings on how much weight loss is feasible when intervening via the LEAN book and videos, as well as predictors of weight loss success.
