This trial will test whether a weight-loss intervention delivered through a patient portal by health care staff can help people maintain their weight loss.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for adults aged 18-75 with a BMI of ≥25 who have lost at least 5% body weight in the past two years and want to maintain it. Participants must be able to use the Epic MyHealth patient portal and plan to stay with a participating primary care practice. Those with conditions causing unintended weight loss, poor computer skills, or inability to follow study procedures are excluded.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests if lifestyle coaching (MAINTAIN PRIME) helps people keep off weight better than just tracking their own diet and activity. It's a practical trial where health staff like nurses become coaches. Participants will either get this coaching or control tracking, decided randomly, and results are measured after two years.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since this trial involves lifestyle changes rather than medication, side effects may include typical responses to diet change or increased physical activity such as muscle soreness or digestive adjustments but no medical side effects from drugs.
