Methods for voluntary weight loss and control.
Methods for voluntary weight loss and control. NIH technology assessment conference. Bethesda MD (USA), 1992/03/30.
One quarter to one third of Americans are over-weight; as many as 40% of women and 24% of men are trying to lose weight at any given time; many have tried a variety of methods, such as diets, exercise, behavior modification, and drugs.
In controlled settings, participants who remain in weight lose programs usually loss approximately 10% of their weight.
However, one third to two thirds of the weight is regained within 1 year, and almost all is regained within 5 years.
For many overweight persons, achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is a lifelong challenge.
