Brief Summary:
African-American communities experience a greater burden of obesity-related diseases such as type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease and higher rates of obesity, compared to other race groups. There is a need for interventions that show promise in mitigating these disparities. The primary goal of this project is to pilot test whether an existing "small-changes" intervention for weight loss can be modified and delivered within the West Side ALIVE churches.

This intervention uses a "small-changes" approach to calorie reduction (operationalized as 6 100-calories changes per day) along with increasing leisure-time physical activity and self-regulation strategies to produce weight loss. The intervention will be delivered via 12 face-to-face group sessions.
