Abstract

We used bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) as an exploratory tool to monitor the changes in body composition induced by a short-term (3-wk) weight reduction (energy-restricted diet, moderate aerobic exercise conditioning and psychological counselling) in 175 highly obese subjects (body mass index, BMI=41.7±5.8 kg/m2). The decrease in weight and BMI after the weight reduction program was 3.4% (geometric mean, p2 (mean±SD, p5:Z100 was also seen (p
