Do good things really come in small packages?
Small Changes as big idea to deal with the obesity epidemic

PRESENTER:
Dr. Lesley Lutes, Associate Professor, Psychology
Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences, UBC Okanagan

ABSTRACT: Six in 10 Canadians are overweight or obese, and these rates are rising with no end in sight. Research has supported traditional behavioral therapy (big diets) to help people lose weight, with great success, but the challenge has been one of long-term weight loss maintenance. Dr. Lutes will share research about successes and failures in the field of treatment approaches to help improve long-term weight loss maintenance, including a relatively new approach, Small Changes. A review of the theory and concept behind small changes, what small changes 'looks like', the results from 6 studies and clinical trials (including overweight and obese men and women, Veterans, African Americans, and those with depression), and the conclusions and future directions for research and individuals will be discussed.
