From: Predictors of successful long-term weight loss maintenance: a two-year follow-up

Independent variable OR (95% CI) P value Corrected P value
∆ BW 0.84 (0.72–0.94) <0.01 0.016*
Post CES-D 0.94 (0.87–1.01) 0.11 0.13
Post BES 1.16 (0.97–1.39) 0.10 0.064

  1. Pre: data at the beginning of the weight loss phase
  2. Post: data at the end of the weight loss phase
  3. ∆ BW: Body weight at the end of weight loss intervention minus body weight at the beginning of weight loss intervention
