ommunities," said Raymond J. Baxter, Ph.D., senior vice president, Community Benefit.

Given that two-thirds of Americans are overweight or obese, these study findings are especially relevant.

"When your weight goes up, so does your blood pressure, risk of diabetes, stroke and heart disease, and wear and tear on your joints, back, hips and knees. Weight gain isn't an aesthetics issue -- it's a health issue," said co-author Stevens, a member of Kaiser Permanente's Care Management Institute's Weight Management Initiative (http://www.kpcmi.org/weight-management/index.html).

The study was also conducted at Duke, Pennington Biomedical Research Center and Johns Hopkins University. In addition to Svetkey and the Kaiser Permanente research team of Stevens, Jack Hollis William M. Vollmer, Ph.D.; Cristina M. Gullion, Ph.D.; and Kristine Funk, M.S., other study co-authors included Phillip J. Brantley, Ph.D. at Pennington; Lawrence J. Appel, M.D. at Johns Hopkins, and Catherine M. Loria, Ph.D. at The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute / National Institutes of Health, which funded the study.
