The Secrets to Maintaining a Successful Weight Loss

What do people who lose weight and keep it off have in common? If you are interested in knowing the answer to this question, The National Weight Control Registry (NWCR) may be a useful reference for you. The NWCR is the largest prospective investigation of long-term successful weight loss maintenance. Currently greater than 5,000 patients are being followed by the NWCR. On average, people being followed by the NWCR have lost 66lbs and have kept that weight off for 5.5 years. Here are just a handful of facts about people who have successfully lost weight AND kept it off!

  • 78% eat breakfast every day.
  • 75% weigh themselves at least once a week.
  • 62% watch less than 10 hours of TV per week.
  • 90% exercise, on average, about 1 hour per day.

Weight loss is possible and maintainable. Why reinvent the wheel if the success of others can help steer you in the right direction. You can visit the National Weight Control Registry at to learn more about the study, read about the research findings, and view some success stories for yourself. You too could become a member!
