The primary aim of this project is to investigate whether the inclusion of almonds or low-fat carbohydrate-rich snack foods, in an energy restricted diet (i.e. a diet that provides fewer kilojoules than you currently consume) improves weight loss and limits weight regain.

 
You might be eligible if you are:

  • Aged 25-65 years.

  • Overweight with BMI between 27.5 -34.9 kg/m2.

  • Non-smoker (minimum 6 months cessation).

  • Weight stable (within 5kg) in the past 3 months.
     

    Participation in the study would include:

  • 3-month weight loss phase followed by a 6-month weight maintenance phase (9 months in total).
     

    You will receive:

  • A supply of test snack foods for the 9 months of the study.

  • Dietary counselling for weight loss and maintenance.

  • An honorarium of $400.
