Background: Intraabdominal adipose tissue IAAT is the body fat depot most strongly related to disease risk. Weight reduction is advocated for overweight people to reduce total body fat and IAAT, although little is known about the effect of weight loss on abdominal fat distribution in different races. Objective: We compared the effects of diet-induced weight loss on changes in abdominal fat distribution in white and black women. We measured total body fat by using a 4-compartment model, trunk fat by using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry, and cross-sectional areas of IAAT at the fourth and fifth lumbar vertebrae and subcutaneous abdominal adipose tissue SAAT by using computed tomography. Results: Weight loss was similar in white and black women
