Role Of Metabolic Adaptation In Weight Regain
Recruiting
In a previous study (NCT04081337), 55 participants with obesity participated on a 18-week lifestyle intervention to reduce their body weight, targeting 10% body weight loss. The participants received tirzepatide (15mg after titration) or placebo during the weight loss intervention. Before and after the lifestyle intervention, energy expenditure (48-h room indirect calorimetry) and body weight and composition (dual-X-ray absorptiometry) were measured, thus enabling the assessment of metabolic ada...

International Weight Control Registry
Recruiting
The IWCR is a global scientific study aimed at better understanding the opportunities and barriers for reducing the prevalence of obesity by collecting information from people who have experience with weight management in their everyday lives. The investigators seek to gather information on a wide range of weight management experiences, ranging from weight loss and weight loss maintenance to weight gain and inability to lose weight.
