6-month percentage weight change Introductory (n = 20) 0.17 (0.49) -0.28 (0.24) 0.13 (0.44)
All consultations (n = 39) -0.06 (0.72) -0.14 (0.38) 0.23 (0.16)
12-month percentage weight change Introductory (n = 20) 0.18 (0.44) -0.22 (0.35) 0.34 (0.14)
All consultations (n = 40) 0.00 (1.00) -0.03 (0.87) 0.29 (0.07)
