SO-NUTS aims to provide essential insights required to develop innovative strategies for preventing obesity, sarcopenia and sarcopenic obesity taking into account sociodemographic and health-related characteristics.

The aging population faces two conditions that threaten healthy aging: high fat mass (obesity) and low muscle mass and function (sarcopenia). The combination of both –referred to as sarcopenic obesity– synergistically increases the risk of adverse health outcomes.

SO-NUTS will test the feasibility and effectiveness of a personalised, cross-country SO-NUTS application to help motivate (future) retirees to lose weight and preserve muscle mass.
