Brief Summary:
The hypothesis of this study is that overweight and obese patients exposed to sleep focused counseling and standard dietary and exercise counseling will have better outcomes than similar patients exposed to standard dietary and exercise counseling only.

Overweight Obesity Behavioral: Better Weight Behavioral: Better Weight & Better Sleep Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Objective: To explore the feasibility of integrating sleep management interventions with dietary and exercise interventions for obesity in a 12-week randomized trial. Methods: We randomized 49 overweight or obese adult patients either to a better weight (BW) cognitive behavioral intervention, or to a combination of the BW intervention and a better sleep intervention, better weight-better sleep (BWBS). Results: The BWBS group lost weight faster (P=.04), and coping self-efficacy accelerated (P=.01). Conclusions: These preliminary results merit replication in a larger primary care-based trial with a longer continuous intervention and followup period. Key words: obesity, sleep, weight loss, primary care, health behavior E Logue et al. Am J Health Behav. 2012;36(3):319-334 DOI:
