Abstract

Adults living in rural areas are at greater risk of becoming overweight and obese due to health care disparities. A pre-/postmatched cohort design was used to evaluate a brief weight-loss counseling intervention, Ten Top Tips (10TT), in a rural primary care setting. The rank sum scores for total weight-loss behaviors and the subscales for dietary changes, self-monitoring, physical activity, and psychological coping taken before and 12 weeks after the intervention differed significantly (P = .0001). Ten Top Tips offers rural community clinics an effective weight-loss intervention.
