This is a six month lifestyle management study to compare the effects of iWell; a dynamic online interactive technology to a self-directed program in overweight or obese individuals. The primary aim is to test the hypothesis that dynamic online interactive technology intervention is more effective than self-directed program in obtaining and maintaining weight loss and other biometric improvements.
