Sažetak
We evaluated the efficiency of a six-month outpatient weight loss treatment program combining healthy diet, fat reduction, psychological counseling, exercise, and orlistat treatment, by measuring body weight and levels of cardiovascular risk factors in 476 subjects with BMI over 30 or 28 with increased blood preassure, cholesterol, and sugar at the baseline and et the end of program. After four weeks of adjustment to a mild low-calorie diet (1600 kcal/day) and counseling, subjects started reciving orlistat (120 mg TID). The mean weight loss after 6 months was 10.9%. Systolic pressure dropped by 6.7%, diastolic by 4.2%, fasting blood glucose by 10.1%, and total cholesterol by 9.8%. Only 9 subjects (7.8%) poorly tolerated the treatment. More men than women were able to maintain the achived weight loss six months after the program (70.6% vs. 58.3%, respectively). The healthy weight loss program was an efficient approach to obesity treatment.
