Brief Summary:
We hypothesize that a combination of high-caloric expenditure exercise and behavioral weight loss counseling would lead to a greater loss of fat mass and a greater improvement in cardiometabolic risk factors that standard (lower caloric expenditure) cardiac rehabilitation exercise plus counseling.

Detailed Description:

We hypothesize that a combination of high-caloric expenditure exercise and behavioral weight loss counseling would lead to a greater loss of fat mass and a greater improvement in cardiometabolic risk factors that standard (lower caloric expenditure) cardiac rehabilitation exercise plus counseling.

The study population consists of overweight (BMI >27) patients with established coronary heart disease. The exercise and counseling program was of 4 months duration with extended follow up at 1 year.
