Background & aim: At the present time, obesity as one of the most important public health problems which has widely prevailed throughout the world. The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness of the attachment-based therapy, dietary-therapy, and the combined treatment method on weight (body mass index) loss in obese high school adolescents of Yasuj city. Methods: This clinical trial study was conducted on sixty female high school students of Yasuj, Iran, diagnosed with overweight and obesity. Subjects were randomly selected and divided into four equal groups, and their body mass indexes were assessed. Three intervention groups were exposed to the attachment-based therapy, dietary-therapy, and combined treatment method. The fourth group (control) did not receive any intervention. Following the treatment period, body mass indexes of the four groups were assessed. The data were analyzed by implementing Univariate analysis of covariance and LSD post hoc tests. Results: All three intervention methods of weight loss significantly increased compared with the control group (p < 0.001). However, the combination therapy was more effective. Conclusions: According to the findings of this study, it was concluded that although interventional techniques such as attachment-based therapy and dietary therapy are effective for weight loss, the combination of these two methods were more effective for weight loss.
