Treatment of Obesity and Binge Eating: Behavioral Weight Loss Versus Stepped Care
What is the purpose of this trial?
This controlled study will test the effectiveness of a stepped-care approach to a standard behavioral weight loss treatment for obese patients with BED. The major question is whether the stepped-care approach, which begins with behavioral weight loss and then follows a decision tree for additional interventions based on early treatment response is superior to standard behavioral treatment.
