  1. Mean differences within group are in mean (95% CI), a negative change indicates a fall in average from baseline to 6 months
  2. P-value: *p < 0.01, **p < 0.001
  3. aChanges of body composition variables during intervention or maintenance phase analysed using paired t- test
  4. bDifference of changes of body composition between intervention and control group measured using ANOVA
