Figure 5. Weight Control effect size vs. time since completion of therapy

Graph shows weight effect size vs. time post-treatment (in weeks) since completion of therapy.  Weight effect size ranges from -0.5 to 2.6.  Post-treatment time since completion of therapy is mostly 10 weeks or 25 weeks; one glycemic effect size at .25 extends to 60 weeks.  A notation on the graph reads: y = 0.0165x + 0.0641; R2 = 0.0694.
