Study Finds Lifestyle Interventions Effective For Weight Loss in Mature Adults

For many people, maintaining a healthy weight gets harder as they age, even if their diet and exercise regime remain the same. One reason for this may be a slowdown in fats storage and removal. According to a new study though, lifestyle weight loss interventions may be just as effective for people over the age of 60 as it is for those younger than 60.

Participants in the study included 242 obese people who took part in a hospital-based obesity management program. The program consisted of lifestyle interventions including dietary changes, psychological support, and encouragement of physical activity. Participants took part in the lifestyle interventions for an average of 3.2 years. Body weight was measured before and after administration of lifestyle interventions.

When the researchers compared weight loss for participants over 60 to those under 60, they found that body weight was reduced by an average of 7.3% compared to 6.9% respectively. In addition, BMI was reduced by 8.1% and 7.8% respectively.

The study was conducted by researchers from University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire. It was published online ahead of print on October 22, 2020 in the journal Clinical Endocrinology.
