How to succeed in dieting

Researchers at the National Weight Control Registry conclude that “it’s unlikely that the people they study are somehow genetically endowed or blessed with a personality that makes weight loss easy for them.”

The registry includes 10,000 people who have lost at least 30 pounds and kept it off for at least a year.

What’s fascinating is that most of these people say they had failed several times when they tried to lose weight.

How did they finally succeed? “They were highly motivated, and they kept trying different things until they found something that worked for them,” the registry experts stress.

“Losing weight and keeping it off is hard, and, if anyone tells you it’s easy, run the other way,” says Kevin Hall, a scientist at the National Institute of Health. “But, it is absolutely possible, and, when people do it, their lives are changed for the better.”

We read about the registry in the June 5, 2017, issue of Time magazine.
