Abstract

The strongest and most compelling evidence for the effectiveness of therapeutic lifestyle change comes from studies of intensive therapeutic lifestyle change treatment (ITLC) because it produces the most dramatic treatment effects, just as higher dosing of pharmacological agents does. Conversely, few non-intensive lifestyle change programs (TLC) have been studied directly, and their effectiveness is presumed based on published ITLC studies.
