Consort diagram showing the flow of participants through each stage of the randomized trial. During Phase 1, participants were randomized to either conventional diet or meal replacement with maintenance condition masked. During Phase 2, the maintenance conditions were unmasked for participants originally assigned to meal replacement and participants either returned to conventional foods or continued use of meal replacements for months 5–12. The three groups at Month 12 were CD, MR/CD, and MR/MR.

Figure 2. Percentage Reduction in Initial BMI at Month 4 and Month 12. From: Meal Replacements in the Treatment of Adolescent Obesity: A Randomized Controlled Trial.

Percentage reduction in initial BMI at month 4 included participants treated by CD or MR. Percentage reduction in initial BMI at month 12 included participants treated by CD (circle), MR/CD (triangle), or MR/MR (square). The three treatment groups were CD (conventional diet); MR/CD (meal replacement in months 1–4 followed by conventional diet in months 5–12); and MR/MR (meal replacement in months 1–4 followed by meal replacement in months 5–12). Participants in MR had significantly greater weight losses at month 4 compared to CD. However, participants who were in the two MR conditions did not achieve significantly greater weight losses than those in the CD condition at month 12.
