Randomized Controlled Trial
Risk of Bias Assessment Rating:
High risk
Inclusion Criteria:
Women aged 35-55; BMI >/r= 30 kg/m2; >o/= 1 of the following cardiovascular risk factors: elevated fasting glucose levels (plasma glucose >/=100 mg/dL), elevated blood pressure (systolic >/=135 or diastolic >/=85 mmHg or use of antihypertensive drugs), elevated triglycerides (>/=150 mg/dL or treatment with lipid-lowering medication), or decreased high-density-lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL) (<50 mg/dL).
Exclusion Criteria:
Previous diagnosis of diabetes; pregnancy or planning to become pregnant during the study; cardiovascular disease; presence of any severe chronic illness; alcohol or drug abuse; undertaking a weight loss program that included physical activity or diet in the past three months.
Research Purpose:
(i) To determine the impact of an intensive lifestyle treatment for weight loss on the plasma metabolome, measured by untargeted 1H NMR metabolomics, in women defined as metabolically healthy obese (MHO) and (ii) to investigate the associations of weight loss and changes in other cardiometabolic risk markers with changes in metabolome after following the intervention.
