Author's abstract

In an out-patient program 18 obese children aged 9-13 years were attended for 1 year. The project consisted of an exercise program performed 3 times per week, dietary restriction to 1200 kcal/d and psychological approach. The intention besides weight reduction and acquisition of a healthy individual nutrition habit was to improve physical performance and to increase self confidence. All children improved physical and coordinative capacity and staying power. Weight reduction to a level below 20% overweight was achieved in the group aged 12-13 years, whereas younger children showed minor weight loss. In the early period of treatment HDL cholesterol generally decreased but increased within 4-5 months exceeding pretreatment levels. Verf.-Referat
