Ruiz Jiménez, Francisco José | 2019
Obesity is a growing health problem in the present, this has led to design interdisciplinary efforts to generate interventions aimed at weight loss; however, the long-term results of these programs are limited, with the recovery of the lost weight being frequent. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is based on the principles of accepting physical discomfort, allowing the subject to adopt important values such as healthy habits. This research aims to analyze the effect of a three-session protocol based on ACT on weight loss through a multiple baseline design across participants. Participants were four women over 18 years, with overweight, to whom applied some tests and a self-registry questionnaire, to identify healthy habits. To analyze the results, visual analysis and the nonparametric statistic Tau-U were used, concluding an increase in the presence of healthy habits and the weight loss.
