OBJECTIVE Our goal was to determine whether behavioral economic constructs-including impulsivity (i.e., steep discounting of delayed food and monetary rewards), the relative reinforcing value of food (RRVfood), and environmental enrichment (i.e., the presence of alternatives to unhealthy foods in the home and neighborhood environments)-are significant pretreatment predictors of overweight children's weight loss within family-based treatment. METHOD Overweight children (N = 241; ages 7-12… Expand
