Most people who want to lose weight are able to lose at least some of their unwanted weight. They work hard at staying on their weight loss routine and perhaps even add in regular periods of exercise. Then there are some people who can adhere to their weight loss regimen long enough to reach goal weight. These people lose the amount of weight they set out to lose. Few people, however, are able to sustain their weight loss without regaining weight even after they work hard and reach their goal weight.
The statistics show only 20 percent of people who lose weight are able to keep off permanently the weight they lose. Twenty percent means that only 1 out of 5 achieve permanent weight loss maintenance. Now you can imagine if you were having some type of heart procedure and the doctor told you that your chance of success was only 20 percent, what you would do?
So why are you, along with everyone else, so willing to engage in a procedure where you can expect only a 20 percent success rate? For long-term weight loss maintenance it has become obvious that there needs to be a new, more effective procedure, a procedure that gets results. Dieting and exercise just aren’t cutting the mustard. This is not surprising, since the single biggest factor involved in long-term, permanent weight loss is being capable of sustaining the changes in behavior needed to prevent regaining lost weight.
