Reports a 1-yr follow-up study of 88 of the 1st 108 clients to complete a behavioral weight reduction program at Stanford University's Eating Disorders Clinic. On the average, Ss maintained their in-treatment weight loss over the follow-up period, but there was marked variability and a low correlation between in-treatment and posttreatment performance. Ss reported significant changes in their eating behavior after treatment, but these changes were only weakly related to weight changes. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
