Lack of follow up treatment for weight control and maintenance by Mexican women represents a serious problem for the health system. This study assess an intervention to increase adherence in women with overweight and obesity through motivational interviewing combined with brief therapy centered in problem solving cognitive behavioral. A quasi-experimental study was designed, with pre and post treatment evaluation. The sample was composed of 16 overweight or obese women who were in nutritional treatment in a public clinic. They were assigned to an experimental group (10) or to a control group (6). They were assessed by the Questionnaire for evaluation of therapeutic adherence MBG; Questionnaire to measure adherence to diet and exercise (designed for the study); and OQ overeating food questionnaire. The results show a tendency to increase adherence in the experimental group, which also showed greater personal involvement and perceived social support. These variables, along with psychological support, promote adherence. It is necessary to broaden the sample, the number of sessions and control some of the conditions of implementation of the intervention to obtain more conclusive results.
