Obesity is a public health problem that has become epidemic worldwide. Overweight and obesity prevention or reduction essentially involves lifestyle modification through behavioral change at the individual level. Lifestyle weight management programmes for overweight or obese adults are multi-component programmes that aim to reduce a person's energy intake and help them to be more physically active by changing their behaviour. A comprehensive program of lifestyle modification is considered the first option for achieving this goal. Lifestyle modification, also referred to as behavioral weight control, includes primary components: diet, exercise, and behavior therapy. This study was conducted Develop nutrition and complete lifestyle modification package for overweight adult people with combination treatment of electronic devices, diet and physical exercise. All available subjects attending a commercial weight reduction clinic were selected. The sample comprised one hundred eighty adult (180) peoples (90 male and 90 female) in the age group of 30-40 year. We aimed to examine the effectiveness of combined nutrition and complete lifestyle modification package (NCLMP) for overweight adult people. In NCLMP we combined electronic Devices, diet and physical exercise programs with at least 3 months of follow-up, conducted in overweight adults (body mass index ≥25). Results revealed that in Pre-intervention phase majority of the subjects (75 per cent) were found to be in the category of high risk while minority of the respondents (25 per cent) had normal WHR (< 0.8). The mean WHR was 0.83±0.0. and the fat values exceed the normal range of fat, diet of subjects in comparison to the balanced diet was substantially inadequate in food groups, representing the excess fat deposition in the subjects owing to obesity. Intervention phase results revealed effect of electronic devices, physical exercise and nutritionally balanced weight loss diet on body composition of males were showed body Fat (%) before intervention was 31.10±3.2 and after intervention 29.26±4 and decrease after intervention -1.84. Effect of electronic devices, physical exercise and nutritionally balanced weight loss diet intervention on body composition of females were found body Fat (%) before intervention was 33.83±4.6 and after intervention 32.2±4.5 and decrease after intervention -1.59.
