Abstract

Background: Obesity is still a major public health concern and a plethora of lifestyle-interventions targeting weight-loss at individual level have shown poor success. Health related behaviours including eating, tend to be concordant in couples which means they might share an obesity risk or support each other’s effort to change these behaviours i.e. weight loss. The aim of this systematic review (SR) and meta-analysis (MA) of randomised controlled trials (RCTs) was to assess the weight change effects of lifestyle interventions targeting couples compared to individuals or no-intervention.
