Better evidence is needed to improve the development, delivery and evaluation of adolescent obesity interventions. This thesis examines overweight adolescent opinions of how to best offer healthy lifestyle interventions and how to support long term behaviour change. Further, it describes the diet of overweight adolescents and how diet changes following participation in a healthy lifestyle intervention. The findings from this thesis will be useful to inform future interventions and health services for overweight adolescents.
