Talk by Dr Miguel Angel Martínez-González at the ANZOS-ASLM-ICCR 2019 Conference Joint National and International Conference on Obesity and Related Chronic Diseases, Sydney, Australia.

Indeed, an intervention combining the adoption of an energy-reduced Mediterranean diet, physical activity promotion and behavioural support was associated with a greater diet adherence after 12 months compared with the simple encouragement to adopt an energy-unrestricted Mediterranean diet. This promising work shows that positive changes in lifestyle habits that can potentially improve cardiometabolic health can last.
