Abstract
Thirty moderately mentally retarded adolescent subjects were assigned to either a Behavior Therapy (n=12), a Social-Nutrition (n=12), or a Wait-List Control group (n=6). The behavior therapy subjects lost significantly more weight than the nutrition and control subjects. The behavior therapy subjects continued to lose weight during maintenance and follow-up conditions.
