Abstract

Health professionals in primary care could lead treatment for obesity, but there are few trials of effective practicable interventions in this context. The Lighten Up trial aimed to compare the effectiveness of several weight loss programmes for obese patients in primary care responding to an invitation from their GP to attend a free weight management programme.
