    Article - En anglais

    The aim of the study was to test the effect of a non-pharmacological weight reduction program on cardiovascular risk factors among overweight hypertensives in a primary health care setting.

    Forty-nine overweight hypertensive patients completed the 12-month program.

    The patients were randomly allocated into either intervention or control groups.

    The examinations included interviews by a nutritionist, pertinent laboratory tests, and a medical examination.

    The intervention involved an individually planned energy-restricted diet of 1000-1500 kcal per day, weekly discussions, and various leaflets on diet modification and on increase of physical activity.
