Weight Loss and Maintenance for Individuals with IDD
There are few efficacious treatment options for individuals with IDD (intellectual and developmental disability) who want to lose weight and reduce health risk. Both the Stop Light Diet (SLDm) and recommended care diet (RC ) diets combined with physical activity may provide weight loss and reduction of health risk, although we expect greater and clinically meaningful weight loss and maintenance with SLDm compared to RC. Translation of the two approaches to weight loss can be accomplished through the existing IDD agencies and care providers with modest training.
