Queen's University
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00664547
First received: April 21, 2008
Last updated: April 22, 2008
Last verified: April 2008
  Purpose

The purpose of the trial was to examine the independent effects of equivalent diet- or exercise-induced weight loss on obesity and related cardiovascular health risk factors. We hypothesized that exercise would result in greater reductions in obesity and health risk factors that equivalent diet (caloric restriction).
