(Abstracted from JAMA 2017;317(23):2381–2391)

Postpartum weight retention increases the lifetime risk of obesity, and this risk seems to be highest among low-income women. The current clinical trial aimed to test if an Internet-based weight loss program in addition to a special supplemental nutrition program for women, infants, and children (WIC program) could aid low-income postpartum women in greater weight loss than the WIC program alone.
