Mexican Americans are more likely to be obese than non-Hispanic whites, yet little research has been conducted on the treatment of obesity in Mexican Americans.
The purpose of this study was to compare a family-based intervention with a traditional program oriented to the individual for achieving weight loss by obese Mexican American women.
A total of 168 obese women were randomly assigned to one of three groups.
Group 1 served as a comparison group and received only printed materials on nutrition, excercise, and behavioral principles for weight loss.
