The Benefits of an Intensive Weight Management Programrecent paper demonstrates that participating in an intensive weight management program may produce health improvements, even when the outcome is increased weight and fat mass. By grouping obese adolescent females according to whether weight was lost or gained, the authors observed dissimilar patterns of body composition change.  Obese adolescent females who gained body weight and fat mass still improved their cardiorespiratory fitness, with weight gain being attributed to fat-free mass therefore negating increases in body fat percentage.
