The three-year PREVIEW (“PREVention of diabetes through lifestyle Intervention in NEW Zealand and around the world”) study will be run in New Zealand and Australia as well as six European countries. In New Zealand it is led by nutrition expert Professor Sally Poppitt, with general practitioner and obesity researcher Dr Anne-Thea McGill, nutritionist Dr Marta Silvestre who is co-ordinating the study, and exercise specialist Dr Nick Gant, all from the University of Auckland.
The study aims to determine the best lifestyle strategies for weight loss and prevention of type 2 diabetes, in a population of overweight individuals. PREVIEW will significantly increase our knowledge on how specific lifestyle factors can help to prevent type-2diabetes.
The study will compare two nutritional programmes that have been shown to be very effective in weight loss and diabetes prevention, and which are comparatively simple to follow. Participants will also be asked to follow one of two physical activity plans, so that the combined effects of diet and exercise can be tracked.
