Summary: Researchers conducted a scoping review of reviews and meta-analyses to examine the association between built environmental factors and dietary intake, physical activity, and/or weight to identify current gaps in the literature and provide an agenda for future research.

Summary: The aim of this study was to examine associations between sensitivity to food rewards, impulsivity, and weight change both during and after participation in a 12-week, Internet-based behavioral weight loss program. Results showed that there were decreases in food reward sensitivity and impulsivity during the 3-month weight loss program and that these improvements were not related to weight change.

Summary: Researchers examined the week-to-week associations between perceived effort, importance of weight loss goals, and adherence to self-monitoring dietary intake and weight during and after a behavioral weight loss program. Results demonstrated that higher levels of effort were associated with fewer days of self-monitoring weight and caloric intake but greater importance of weight loss goals was associated with greater number of days self-monitoring weight and dietary intake.

Summary: This study examined the associations of the frequency of self-weighing, consistency of self-weighing, and weight change for participants enrolled in a behavioral weight loss program during a weight loss maintenance period where no intervention was provided. Findings showed that greater consistency of self-weighing was associated with less weight regain but that frequency did not play a significant role in weight change during this period.
