Strategies for weight loss maintenance


   Department of Psychology


About the Project

In 2015, 58% of women and 68% of men in the UK were overweight or obese. In efforts to control body weight, two thirds of women report engaging in a recent weight loss attempt. However, such attempts are largely unsuccessful with most individuals regaining any lost weight in the long term. This PhD project will explore and test strategies (for example, psychological, dietary) to improve weight loss maintenance and it will examine the psychological traits associated with successful weight loss maintenance.
