#459: Tips for Weight Loss - National Weight Control Registry Findings on how successful losers lose weight, and keep it off
Established in 1994 by Rena Wing, PhD, from Brown Medical School and Jim Hill, PhD, from the University of Colorado, the National Weight Control Registry (NWCR) is the largest prospective investigation of long-term successful weight loss maintenance. NWCR is currently tracking more than 10,000 people who have successfully lost weight and kept it off. To be included in the database, individuals must be 18 years or older, have lost a minimum of 30 pounds, and have kept the weight off at least one year.
Todd shares findings from NWCR that all of us can incorporate into our lives whether we want to lose weight, or simply maintain our current weight.
