  Purpose

Web- or internet-based programs have the potential to induce and, possibly, help to sustain, significant lifestyle modification. This study will evaluate the effect of a unique interactive web-based behaviour change program on weight loss and cardiovascular risk factors in people who are overweight or obese and at high risk of cardiovascular disease.
