RATIONALE: A diet and physical activity program followed by a weight-loss maintenance program may help obese black women lose weight.

Weight loss may reduce a person's risk of developing cancer.
PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying a weight-loss program to see how well it works in helping obese black women lose weight.
