Abstract

Overweight and obesity affect 67% of population in Chile. Different strategies have been developed to reverse and improve this situation, nutritional consultation is one such strategy. However, consultation has not been structured and it is unknown whether this procedure has a positive effect for weight loss. The objective of this study was to assess the effectiveness of a structured nutritional consultation on weight loss and eating habits in overweight and obese adults in a family health center. A pre-post intervention study was performed with 30 participants over 3 months. Anthropometric measures (weight, body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference (WC) and % body fat), dietary intake and eating habits were the main outcomes of the study. A structured nutritional consultation was significantly associated with decreased weight, BMI, WC and % body fat. There were improvements in dietary intake habits. A 92% of the participants incorporated a snack mid-morning and a daily serving of low-fat dairy. Despite benefits observed after a structured nutritional consultation, larger studies with longer duration are warranted.
