DUARTE, Andreia Neves  y  QUEIROZ, Elizabeth. Cognitive-behavioral nutrition education program for overweight women. Rev. Psicol. Saúde [online]. 2020, vol.12, n.3, pp. 95-108. ISSN 2177-093X.

Introduction: The objective of this research was to propose and evaluate a cognitive behavioral nutrition education program for overweight women and to identify factors that interfere with adherence. Methods: A quasi-experimental, qualitative and quantitative study, were performed. Overweight women were separated in two groups: one who participated in a group program based on the cognitive behavioral model and the other who received individual follow-up. Anthropometric and biochemical data were compared, as well as factors related to adherence. Results: Anthropometric and biochemical data did not differ significantly between groups. The qualitative analysis showed important changes in relation to the quality and quantity of the food ingested. Discussion: The strategies used allowed the elaboration of relevant cognitive resources for weight loss. Conclusions: The program assisted in changes in eating habits, which may impact on relevant anthropometric and biochemical changes in the medium term.
