Abstract: This work aims to highlight the benefits of intervention with Gestalt therapy in patients with obesity and/or overweight. This study will not assess the nutritional part of the diet, but will focus on the psychological therapy part and its effect on weight loss results. A comparative intervention between four groups will be considered. One of the groups will be treated as the control group and will only follow a treatment with a hypocaloric diet. The other three groups will receive psychological therapy in addition to the diet. Of these three groups, one of them will receive therapy with a cognitive-behavioral approach (the therapy that has been traditionally applied), another one will receive therapy according to the humanistic approach (Gestalt therapy) and a last group, in addition to the diet and Gestalt therapy, will complete the treatment with the practice of Mindfulness. Greater adherence to the diet and greater effectiveness (achievement of the goal set at the beginning) are expected from the three groups that complement the diet with psychological therapy. The hypothesis of this study is that individuals receiving treatment based on Gestalt therapy will have better results compared to cognitive behavioral therapies. The possible limitations that are expected to be found will be in terms of adherence to treatment as a result of patient resistance, as well as unhealthy routines and habits acquired over the years.
