Abstract:
Weight loss maintenance is a crucial element of effective weight management. Professional face to face contact is known to be beneficial but costly in terms of manpower in supporting weight maintenance. In the USA, the use of the internet to maintain contact and motivation with clients has been explored. This study seeks to investigate the benefits to weight maintenance of dietetic support via email with a group of successful weight loss patients from a National Health Service Dietetic Clinic.
