The aim of this study was to test the association of eating behavior with weight loss and weight regain after dietary intervention in obese females. Twenty-nine obese females were included in this study. Eating behavior using the Three-Factor Eating Questionnaire (TFEQ), which measures uncontrolled eating, emotional eating, and cognitive restraint eating, was tested for its association with weight loss (baseline to 3 months) and weight regain (3 to 15 months). Uncontrolled and emotional eating at the baseline was associated with weight regain, although cognitive restraint eating was associated with weight loss. Information on eating behavior may help to identify people who require additional support to maintain a reduced body weight after dietary intervention in obese females.
