Study Summary

This research is to expand a virtual weight loss and weight maintenance program to rural counties of Illinois. The program uses dietary and lifestyle modifications for adults with obesity. The EMPOWER weight loss program has proven to be effective in 3 previous trials. In this research, we target a rural participant population. Individuals in rural locations are more likely to be affected by obesity and have unique barriers to weight loss related to geographic isolation including access to health care, preventative care, grocery stores, social networks, internet, and cell service.
