  • Intervention
    In overweight and obese women who become pregnant, what is the impact of a structured weight management program in gestational weight gain?
    • Conclusion

      Among overweight and obese women, gestational weight gain appears to be controlled by a lifestyle intervention approach to weight management. Limited evidence supports any combination of behavioral counseling, weight monitoring, diet and physical activity as weight management methods to control excessive gestational weight gain (GWG). Physical activity interventions independent of other weight management strategies did not appear to influence GWG.

    • Grade: I
      • Grade I means there is Good/Strong evidence supporting the statement;
      • Grade II is Fair;
      • Grade III is Limited/Weak;
      • Grade IV is Expert Opinion Only;
      • Grade V is Not Assignable.
      • High (A) means we are very confident that the true effect lies close to that of the estimate of the effect;
      • Moderate (B) means we are moderately confident in the effect estimate;
      • Low (C) means our confidence in the effect estimate is limited;
      • Very Low (D) means we have very little confidence in the effect estimate.
      • Ungraded means a grade is not assignable.
