    APPETITE AFTER WEIGHT LOSS

    2.2 lbs weight loss increases appetite by 100 calories per day, long-term weight loss difficult

    MAINTAINING WEIGHT LOSS

    Less than 2% of people maintain 20 lbs weight loss for 2 years according to 1959 study

The popular belief that 95% of all people who lose weight will eventually regain it back is rooted in this study according to a new paper by Befort et al (2008) from the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, Kansas, USA.

    MAINTAINING WEIGHT LOSS

    Half of Weight Watchers lifetime members maintain 5% weight loss for 5 years

    Out of 916 lifetime members of the commercial weight loss program Weight Watchers, 80% maintained a 5% weight loss after one year, 71% maintained a 5% weight loss after two years, and 50% maintained a 5% weight loss after five years. This according to an analysis by researchers at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. "The current sample comprises only the most successful Weight Watchers participants," the authors of the paper noted.
