The study will test the efficacy of an intervention (called SitLess) that uses mobile health technology for reducing time spent sitting/lying down (Sedentary Behavior, SB) on the longer-term maintenance of lost weight. This will be an 18-month trial in 180 obese (BMI=30-45 kg/m2) older (65-85 years) adults randomized to one of three treatment arms, all with a caloric restriction intervention for weight loss (WL) plus: 1) moderate-intensity aerobic exercise (WL+EX); 2) a SB intervention (WL+SitLess); or 3) (WL+EX+SitLess). The study is just beginning and will provide opportunities for an intern who is interested in learning about clinical research for the treatment of obesity involving behavioral lifestyle changes, including weight loss and exercise. The intern would assist with study recruitment, data collection and delivery of interventions, as well as attend study-related meetings when available. Data collection would involve assessment of body composition, maximal aerobic capacity testing, physical and muscle function testing, questionnaires, and resting metabolic rate assessments. The intern would also assist with helping during the dietary weight loss classes and supervision of treadmill exercise.
