Many overweight patients are able to lose weight successfully, but then regain their weight.
The purpose of this study is to develop and test the efficacy of 2 interventions to prevent
weight regain in individuals who have recently lost weight. The two interventions being
tested are a face-to-face group maintenance program and an Internet intervention. These
interventions will be compared to a no-contact control group that receives quarterly
newsletters. The primary outcome measure is weight regain from baseline to 18-months.
