SUCCESSFUL WEIGHT LOSS STRATEGIES

Most popular weight loss strategies: eating less, exercising more, eating less fat, low-calorie food

"The most-popular strategies employed by obese participants who reported trying to lose weight were eating less, exercising more, eating less fat, and switching to lower-calorie foods," notes a new paper about obese adults who were participants in the 2001–2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES).

"In contrast, only a small proportion used commercial weight loss programs, liquid diets, and prescription weight loss medicines.

"Liquid diets, nonprescription diet pills, and popular diets showed no association with successful weight loss, and those who reported losing 10% body weight [or more] were less likely to report eating diet foods/products, compared with those who did not lose 10%."

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. "However, these results provide further evidence that maintenance of weight loss in those who successfully lose weight in one commercial weight-loss programme is more feasible than data from clinical populations have suggested," they concluded.
