Abstract (Summary)

More than 500 million people are affected by obesity worldwide and in 2015 no state in the United States had a prevalence of obesity less than 20%. It is well-documented that obesity is linked with an increased risk of chronic diseases such as: metabolic syndrome, hypertension, insulin resistance, diabetes, arterial hypertension, and dyslipidemia. A weight management intervention that is affordable, convenient, appealing, and effective is needed in order to target this epidemic. In an effort to provide supplemental resources needed by weight management programs, the Telehealth Nutrition Manual for An Online Intensive Behavioral Weight Management Program was created. The purpose of this project was to create a nutrition manual for those seeking weight loss through online program interventions. The manual includes guidance on appropriate caloric intake, monitoring biochemical markers, strategies for behavior change, and a variety of dietary approaches within a flexible meal plan. Recommendations for future nutrition manuals are provided.
