Obesity is now one of the most critical and demanding public health condition due to the correlation with many medical and psychological comorbidities, such as cardiovascular, orthopedic, pneumological, endocrinological, psychopathological complications, above all the type 2 diabetes. Obesity traditionally needs long and expensive treatments in a chronic care management approach. So clinical research has to develop, test and validate cheaper rehabilitation programs. For this reason, we developed the DIABESITY study, the design of a mHealth integrated platform to promote the empowerment of patients in self-monitoring and successfully managing their pathological conditions (focusing on obesity and type 2 diabetes) through the use of mobile devices. In this paper we report this study by discussing the following two important aspects of DIABESITY. (i) Dietary mHealth tools for home-patients; (ii) Measures to capture the psychological factors and processes which mediate change of behavior and affect initiation and maintenance phases.
