Losing Weight is Just Half the Battle
Maintaining Weight Loss May be More Difficult than Losing Weight,
But There are Some Secrets to Keeping the Weight Off
Most health professionals agree that a drop of
just 10 percent of a person's body weight can
result in significant health benefits.
Although some people are able to lose the
weight initially, the bigger question is are they
able to maintain that weight loss? Some
studies indicate a 20 to 30 percent suc-

bleaker with only a five percent success
rate. However, there is a lack of data on

for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC) indicate
that almost 87 percent of
obese individuals and 80
percent of overweight
individuals are trying to lose
or maintain their weight.
Additionally, a 2000 survey
conducted by the Calorie
Control Council found that
24 percent of American
adults are "dieting" while
another 47 percent are
trying to "control their
weight." And, losing just a
few pounds is beneficial.
