Summary This study utilised the two-factor model of impulsivity to examine obesity and weight-loss maintenance. The findings indicated that obese adults self-report significantly higher levels of rash impulsivity compared to healthy weight individuals. Novel findings also suggested that the behavioural measure of reward sensitivity could differentiate successful weight-loss maintainers from regainers.
