"This study evaluated 24-month outcomes of a randomized, controlled trial involving an intensive lifestyle-based weight maintenance program targeting overweight Mexican-American children at a charter school in Houston, Texas." The study involved 60 overweight/obese children and included dietary changes (eating peanuts/peanut butter as a snack to enhance satiety).
By the end of the 24 months, the intervention resulted in improved weight and clinical outcomes in participants.
