Don’t Weight to Lose
is an 9-week program designed to incorporate recommendations from previous studies in order to promote self-efficacy and long-term behavior change in dieting and exercise habits. Church-based health programs have shown to be holistically effective in eliminating ethnic health disparities. This study evaluates the effectiveness of this program in (1) increasing weight loss, (2) increasing fat free mass, (3) increasing fruit and vegetable intake, (4) and decreasing body fat %.
To evaluate the effectiveness of:
High-intensity 20 minute 3x/week resistance band exercise (8 second repetitions, moderate to heavy resistance, 2 sets)
High-intensity 20 minute 3x/week cardiovascular exercise (75-90% full effort pace) on body fat%, fat free mass and weight loss, and also to determine adherence to practical changes in dietary recommendations on fruit and vegetable intake.
High-intensity resistance and cardiovascular exercise are effective weight loss interventions in church-based health programs. Practical recommendations in nutrition promote an increase in fruit and vegetable intake from baseline. Diuretic use, obesity, and daily habits interfere with body fluids that are calculated with bioelectric impedance, which may explain negative outcomes in body fat% and fat free mass.
Don’t Weight to Lose
prescriptions in weight loss and nutrition promote healthy behaviors in the church community.

102 overweight/obese adults from Franklin Avenue Baptist Church in New Orleans participated in the study. Body composition, hip circumference and fruit and vegetable intake were determined at baseline, 3 weeks, 5 weeks, and 8 weeks. Data was analyzed for those attending 3 of 3 body composition sessions.
Health status reported by participants during the initial assessment phase
50 (49%) attended 3 of 3 body composition sessions. Significant improvements were noted in areas of weight loss (-9.4lbs), hip circumference (-2.5 inches) and fruit and vegetable intake (+3.0). Body fat % (+1.94%) and fat free mass (-10.58) were shown to have negative outcomes.
Participants actively engage in a speaker session given by Dr. Corey Hebert on Stress Management.
