Teaching Kitchen Multisite Trial (TK-MT)
The purpose of this study is to see how doable, acceptable, and effective an intensive multisite lifestyle intervention is on adults with clinically defined obesity and one additional metabolic syndrome component. This program may help participants improve sleep, activity, and dietary habits. Labs and anthropometric measurements will be assessed for improvements as well. The UTHealth Houston School of Public Health site will be recruiting UT System employees to participate in this program.
The Teaching Kitchen Multisite Trial is a pilot study to implement a Teaching Kitchen intervention in a randomized controlled Multisite Trial in adults with clinically defined obesity and one additional metabolic syndrome component. A randomized controlled pre-post survey design with labs and anthropometric data (fasting insulin and glucose, HbA1c, hepatic panel, fasting lipid profile, weight, height, waist circumference, and blood pressure) will be used to evaluate patient outcomes.
The purpose of this study is to implement a 12-month hands-on teaching kitchen lifestyle intervention among adults across four sites with clinically defined obesity and one additional metabolic syndrome component (fasting glucose, insulin, ALT, or lipids)
The overall goals of this project are to:
Determine feasibility and acceptability of a teaching kitchen lifestyle intervention
Identify barriers and facilitators to effectively implementing TK culinary and lifestyle education interventions
Assess if program participation improves participant movement, sleep, dietary, and culinary habits
Assess if program participation improves participant fasting blood levels of glucose, insulins, HbA1c, ALT/AST, total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL, and HDL
