Inclusion Criteria:
Office workers who belong to the health insurance association of the Nichirei Group Corporation in Tokyo and its surrounding area, aged from 30 to 59 years, with MetS risk factors based on the results of regular health check-ups. A subject was considered to be at risk of developing MetS if one or more abnormalities involving serum lipids, glucose levels, and blood pressure were present, with visceral obesity (umbilical circumference: 85 cm or more) and/or BMI >=25. The following were considered to be abnormal: triglyceride (TG) >=150 mg/dL and/or HDL-cholesterol (HDL-C) =130 mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressure >=85 mmHg, fasting glucose >=110 mg/dL and/or HbA1c >=5.5%.

Research Purpose:
This study was designed to investigate the effectiveness of a worksite-based LiSM10!® program on metabolic parameters in middle-aged male Japanese white-collar workers requiring health guidance based on regular health check-up results.
Blinding efforts:
The Nichirei Inc staff members managing the study and contacting participants were not involved in this randomization process. However, as the participants received detailed explanations of the objectives and other aspects of this study, blinding to group assignments was not possible.
