Long-Term Follow-Up of the Telemonitoring Weight-Reduction Program “Active Body Control”

Table 2

Relative and absolute weight changes and BMI values changes at 12 and 24 months in the group which continued to receive ABC telecoaching (“ABC contd.”) after 12 months and in the group which did not receive further telecoaching (“ABC discontd.”). The figures given are means and standard deviations.

p1 0-12: 0 versus 12 months (changes are losses over 12 months).
p2 0-24: 0 versus 24 months (changes over 24 months).
p3 24-12: 24 versus 12 months (smaller changes, weight regains in the second year).
p4 contd. versus discontd.: difference months for continued versus discontinued intervention.
