"For it is all in our heads, of that I am convinced" : A qualitative study of the learning process in the weight-loss program ForMe (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie har varit att ta del av de lärprocesser som har skett hos deltagare i viktminskningsprogrammet ForMe. Programmet bygger på ett holistiskt koncept som kombinerar kost och motion med mental träning. Det aktuella studieobjektet valdes utifrån ett intresse för mental träning som verktyg för livsstilsförändring. En kvalitativ ansats har använts för att besvara syftet och 9 stycken intervjuer har genomförts för insamlande av empiri. Studien har inspirerats av ett fenomenologiskt perspektiv samt en kvalitativ analys.

Resultatet visar att programmet har bidragit till flertalet lärdomar hos deltagarna. Det visade sig att lärdomarna grundade sig i vårt undersökta fenomen livsstilsförändring. En ökad medvetenhet ses som en av de största lärdomarna och insikt kring valmöjligheter benämns som ytterligare en väsentlig lärdom. Det framgår även att programmet har bidragit med en mängd användbara verktyg för kursdeltagarna att nyttja i sin viktminskningsresa, likväl i sin vardag.

Det har visat sig i vår studie att det holistiska programmet ForMe verkar vara en effektiv metod för viktminskning. Studien kan således användas som en bidragande del till forskningen om effektiva metoder för viktminskning, i syftet att bemöta övervikt och fetma som folkhälsoproblem.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to take part of the learning process that occurs amongst participants in the weight loss program ForMe. The program is based on a holistic concept combining diet and physical exercise with mental practice. The object of the study was chosen based on an interest in mental practice as an instrument for lifestyle change. A qualitative approach was used to answer the purpose and 9 participants have been interviewed to collect empirics. The study is inspired by a phenomenological perspective and a qualitative analysis.

The result showed that the program has contributed in several lessons for the participants. It was also shown that the lessons were all based on our studied phenomenon lifestyle change. An increased awareness is seen as one of the biggest lessons and insight about the individual freedom to choose is also referred to as an essential lesson. It is also clear that the program has contributed with a variety of useful instruments for participants to use in their weight loss journey, and also in their everyday lives.

It has been shown in our study that the holistic program ForMe is an effective method for weight loss. The study may therefore contribute to the research on effective methods for weight loss, with the aim of dealing with overweight and obesity as a public health problem.
