Body size estimation (BSE) and locus of control (LOC) were studied in 18 obese adolescent boys undergoing weight reduction. The subjects attended a seven-week summer camp which offered both increased activity and a 1200 kcal (5023 kJ)/d diet, resulting in an average weight loss of 29.2 +/- 6.3 lb (13.3 +/- 2.9 kg) and a decrease in body fat from 39.0(More)
OBJECTIVE Our objective was to examine the stability of body habitus over 15 years in Boston area adult males enrolled in the Normative Aging Study (NAS) and to examine stability as a function of initial leanness or obesity, age and reported body habitus at age 18. DESIGN Prospective observational study of anthropometric/clinical measures initiated in(More)
The Normative Aging Study (NAS) recruited 2280 Boston area healthy males aged 21 to 80 in 1961 through 1970. Clinical exams have continued at 3- to 5-year intervals. Obesity was not an exclusion criterion. Stability in weight and body habitus among 867 adult participants in the NAS was evaluated at 5- and 15-year follow-ups. At study entry, age was linearly(More)
Fluctuations in weight/fatness are compared in a longitudinal study of male participants aged 40-80 years from the Normative Aging Study (NAS) at the Veterans Administration Outpatient Clinic in Boston. The incidence and prevalence of repetitive weight changes and factors associated with stability in body habitus are examined. The contributions of secular(More)
BACKGROUND: Overweight and/or excessive weight gain, as well as changes in central fat deposition, have been implicated in increased incidence of coronary disease and type 2 diabetes.OBJECTIVE: We related adiposity (BMI, kg/m2, and waist circumference, WC, cm) to biochemical risk factors (cholesterol, triglyceride and glucose concentrations) for(More)
