PURPOSE
The Purpose of this study was to examine an obesity control program using dietary consult and physical exercise among middle-aged obese women in a health center.
METHOD
This study used a pretest-posttest design. The subjects were 63 middle-aged women with over BMI 25(Kg/m2) or %BF 28 who participated in the obesity control program for 12 weeks.
RESULTS
After the program for 12 weeks, BMI(p= .02) and TC(p= .00) decreased significantly compared with those before the program.
CONCLUSION
Obesity control programs in health centers can decrease the degree of obesity in middle-aged obese women. Therefore health centers should develop strategies for their members' continuous participation in such an obesity control program.
