In a nutshell: Overweight employees from four worksites were enrolled on this randomised controlled trial.

They could also enrol on a weight-maintenance programme and no significant weight gain was observed. There were also improvements in the cardiometabolic risk factors of the intervention group, regarding cholesterol, glucose and blood pressure.
