Abstract

Brief background: There is a paucity of published literature reporting the effect of weight management interventions on micronutrient intake. Lovelady et al. (2006) reported the effect of a 10 week, 500 kcal/d energy restriction on early postpartum, overweight lactating women. This study used cognitive and behaviour strategies in weekly sessions. Energy intake was significantly reduced from baseline to week 10 of the intervention as was intake of vitamin C and vitamin D. To the authors' knowledge, there is no published work describing the effect of behavioural change strategies on micronutrient intake in obese healthy adults.
