Abstract

The effects of short-term (3 weeks) integrated body weight reduction (BWR) program (including energy-restricted diet, aerobic and strength exercise (5 days/week), nutritional education and psychological counseling) on plasma leptin levels and body composition were investigated in 54 morbidly obese patients (38 females/16 males; mean BMI±SE: 41.8+0.1 kg/m2, range 35-58 kg/m2; mean age: 29.8±1.0 yr, age range: 18-46 yr). The BWR program induced a significant (p
