Calorie Control
the Consumer Reports' questionnaire
(all had a BMI greater than or equal to
27), 4,000 lost an average of 37 pounds
and were able to keep it off for five years
or more. Another 8,000 were able to lose
at least 10 percent of their body weight
and keep it off for a year or more.
Successful Losers ­ How They Keep the
Weight Off
In addition to the Consumer Reports'
data, researchers also look to the
National Weight Control Registry (NWCR), a group of people who have
lost at least 30 pounds and maintained that weight loss for at least one
year. Many of the "successful losers" in the NWCR share several "secrets"
to maintaining their weight loss. Those secrets include:
Consuming a low-fat diet
Eating breakfast
Participating in high levels of physical activity (burning
approximately 400 calories per day)
Practicing self-monitoring (such as weighing themselves daily)
The survey from Consumer Reports showed
similar findings. Successful losers cut portion
sizes, cut back on fat and avoided sweets. And,
while other consumers who participated in the
survey also practiced these behaviors, it was
the "successful losers" who practiced them
most often. In fact, over half of the "successful
losers" said they used those strategies on a
daily basis. Another big reason for success ­
exercise. Eighty percent of the successful
losers exercised three or more times a week
and listed it as their number one strategy for
keeping weight gain at bay. James Hill, Ph.D.,
director of the Center for Human Nutrition at the University of Colorado
in Denver, and developer of the NWCR, said of the Consumer Reports
survey, "This study says that people are succeeding at weight loss by con-
scious effort. It can be done, but it's not easy. Our challenge is take what
we've learned from these people and use it to help others be successful."
