Despite all of the research studies, diet books, and supplements available for weight loss, there still isn’t agreement on what truly works! While I don’t claim to have the answer either (and I wish I did), I look to the National Weight Control Registry for information from people who have been successful at losing weight and more importantly, keeping the weight off.
The National Weight Control Registry (NWCR) is a research study that collects information from people who have successfully lost at least 30 pounds and have kept it off for one year or more. The study now has more than 5,000 participants. The goal of the NWCR is to identify similarities among people who have been successful at losing and maintaining weight loss long-term.
