Abstract: While physician counseling alone isn't more effective for weight loss than usual care (strength of recommendation [SOR]: A, larger randomized controlled trials [RCTs]), counseling (adults) as part of a multidisciplinary intervention may promote modest (2-3 kg) weight loss over 1 year (SOR: B, a single RCT).
