Abstract:
Aims: This study aimed to determine if these two measures of obesity (ABSI and BMI) were associated with health-related quality of life in this sample of overweight and obese African-American congregants seeking weight reduction.; Specifically, this study aimed to determine if health-related quality of life explained the variation in ABSI or BMI.
