Weight parameters and pathological eating as predictors of obesity treatment outcome in children and adolescents


, : Weight parameters and pathological eating as predictors of obesity treatment outcome in children and adolescents. Eating Behaviors 10(1): 71-73

The current study investigated weight parameters and pathological eating as predictors of treatment outcome in obese youngsters. Obese youngsters (N=132) were examined before participating in an obesity treatment program. Weight loss was measured during and at the end of treatment. Baseline adjusted BMI, restrained eating style and weight loss after 4 months of treatment positively predicted weight loss at the end, whereas larger weight loss after 1 month of treatment predicted less total weight loss. Lower baseline adjusted BMI was associated with more drop-out whereas subjective binge eating was positively related to program completion. Specific weight and eating pathology parameters affected positive as well as negative obesity treatment outcome. Identifying more pre-treatment predictors for drop-out can ameliorate our treatment approach.
