Adolescent weight management intervention in a nonclinical setting: changes in eating-related cognitions and depressive symptoms.
The present study was a secondary data analysis of a randomized controlled trial (RCT) to examine changes in depressive symptoms and eating-related cognitions in teens who participated in a non-clinic-based adolescent behavioral weight control treatment delivered by YMCA coaches. The results demonstrated some positive and no detrimental effects of a non-clinic-based behavioral weight control intervention on adolescents' eating-related cognitions and depressive symptoms.
