Weight loss interventions that appeal to and engage young women, as well as meet their individualised needs, are required. The potential for eHealth interventions to achieve significant weight loss has been highlighted, but their ability to engage young women is not proven. This project will assess the needs of young women for an eHealth weight loss intervention, as well as identify the most effective obesity treatment strategies for young women via a systematic review of the literature. The study will develop and evaluate a novel eHealth intervention. It will be targeted to young overweight women, who are at risk of progressing to obesity, and aims to reverse the weight gain trajectory through modest weight loss
