Weight changes and differences after 12 weeks of intervention. Participants of the telemedical coaching (TMC; n=58) group, the telemedical (TM; n=61) group, and the control group (n=61) were classified according to their weight change after 12 weeks of intervention into one of four categories: (1) ≥1 kg weight gain (black), (2) stable weight with <1 kg weight change (dark grey), (3) weight loss of 1-5 kg (light grey), or (4) weight loss of 5-20 kg (white). Shown are percentages. Differences in frequency distribution of weight change between the three groups were analyzed by using the Chi square test (, p<0.05; , p<0.001).
