Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Combined lifestyle intervention
Lifestyle counselling (nutrition and physical activity) by dietician and physiotherapist during 10-month intervention period
Behavioral: Combined lifestyle intervention

10-month intervention period with:

  • weekly group-based sports lessons supervised by a physiotherapist
  • individual dietary advice by a dietician
  • case management by practice nurse
  • maintenance programme to guide subjects to maintain lifestyle behaviour change
Other Name: SLIMMER intervention

Usual care group
Subjects receive brochures on healthy lifestyle at baseline, and during the 10-month intervention period only usual care as provided by their own general practitioner.
Other: Usual care group
Written information on healthy lifestyle was provided at baseline, no individual advice or programme was provided. No additional appointments were scheduled, apart from the visits for follow-up measurements

  9. Physical activity behaviour [ Time Frame: Baseline, end of intervention (12 months), after follow-up (18 months) ]
    Measured with questionnaire

  10. Behavioural determinants [ Time Frame: Baseline, end of intervention (12 months), after follow-up (18 months) ]
    Determinants of nutrition and physical activity behaviour, measured with questionnaire

  11. Process indicators [ Time Frame: Baseline, end of intervention (12 months), after follow-up (18 months) ]
    Indicators to investigate how the intervention was delivered and received, measured with quantitative and qualitative methods

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Medication known to interfere with glucose tolerance
  • Any mental or physical disability that will hinder participation in the lifestyle intervention
  • Severe psychiatric disease
  • Patients who showed bad compliance in the past
  • Participation in another regular vigorous exercise and/or diet programme, i.e.:

    • Intensive exercise programme: any exercise programme offered by a physiotherapist and/or patients sporting at least 3 times a week at their own initiative.
