Exercise appears to be an important behavior for long-term weight control in obese individuals. However, little evidence exists confirming such findings in patients with chronic heart failure (HF). Methods: Using a prospective, experimental design, we described the effects of 24 weeks of home-based walking program on weight control in overweight and obese HF patients randomized to exercise (n=48) and a control group (n=51). Weight changes between the 2 groups at baseline and 6 months were compared using repeated measures ANOVA. Comparative analyses were conducted using Chi-square in patients who had weight loss, no change, or weight gain following completion of the program. Results: Compared to control group, patients who were in the exercise group demonstrated improvement in their weights from baseline to 6 months (Figures 1 and 2). Conclusion: Our findings demonstrate the beneficial effects of a home-based walking program on weight control in HF patients, suggesting that exercise produces physiological, behavioral, and psychological effects that may facilitate weight loss in this population.
