Abstract
Objectives Habit-based weight-loss interventions have shown clinically important weight loss and weight-loss maintenance. Understanding why habit-based interventions work is therefore of great value, but there is little qualitative evidence about the experiences of participants in such programmes. We explored the perspectives of individuals who completed two habit-based weight-management programmes, Ten Top Tips and Do Something Different. Design One-on-one, face-to-face, semistructured interviews were conducted and analysed thematically. Setting Participants from the community were interviewed at Bond University, Australia. Participants Using a maximum variatio...
