Weight Loss Research: Effective Ways to Keep Weight Off
- Research shows that using personal contact to support people’s weight loss journey is significantly more effective than other methods.
- For every 1kg of lost bodyfat, the risk of diabetes reduced by 16%.
- 45% of people who had personal contact to support their weight loss, kept all of the weight off over a long period of time.
- Personal contact weight loss programs are 17% more effective than other official behaviour change programs.
Over the long term, technology shows to be more effective than if people did their own weight loss program by themselves. People using technology lost an average of 1.1kg more than the group of people who did the program without technology on their own, over a long period of time.
