Weight gain is disproportionately high among young adults compared to other age groups and of particular concern in the military, which is comprised largely of young adults, as obesity has emerged as a threat to national security. Despite the critical need to address weight gain in young military personnel who can face discharge for failing to meet weight standards, there is currently no evidence-based programs available to them. This study aims to adapt an evidence-based weight gain prevention intervention for delivery in a young adult, active-duty military population using mobile technology to prevent weight gain over 2 years.
