  1. The multiple regression analysis was used to identify factors affecting weight loss. The objective variable was the weight loss during the 6-month program. The explanatory variables were age, number of sessions of nutrition therapy and counseling, TEG scores at the first session (pre-TEG), and the changes in TEG score from the first session to the completion of the program.
