RTIPs Meet-up: Exercise and Nutrition to Enhance Recovery and Good Health for You (ENERGY)

We are so delighted to add the Exercise and Nutrition to Enhance Recovery and Good Health for You (ENERGY) intervention to the RTIPs repository!

ENERGY is a 2-year nutrition- and physical activity-based weight loss intervention that targets female breast cancer survivors who are overweight or obese. 

ENERGY’s conceptual framework posits that determinants of health are influenced by personal, social, and physical environmental antecedents and consequences of behavior affect one’s motivation and self-efficacy for behavior change. Goal setting, self-monitoring, and learning to overcome barriers are central to this model.

The overall goal of ENERGY is to help participants achieve a healthier weight (a sustained weight loss of 7% body weight over the intervention period) and lifestyle habits. 

This program uses an intervention approach recommended by the Community Preventive Services Task Force: technology-supported multicomponent coaching or counseling interventions to reduce weight programs
