Abstract: Interventions that include a combination of behavioral and lifestyle modifications— including decreased caloric intake, specific aids to changing diet, increased physical activity, and treatment of binge eating disorders—have modest benefit with appropriate use (strength of recommendation [SOR]: A, based on multiple randomized controlled trials). Hypnosis can be used as an adjunct to behavioral therapy for weight loss (SOR: A, based on systematic reviews).
