4 Successful Weight Management Techniques

The National Weight Management Control Registry (NWCR) was established in 1994 by Rena Wing PhD from Brown Medical School and James O. Hill PhD from the University of Colorado. It is the largest prospective investigation of long-term successful weight loss maintenance. Given the prevailing belief that few individuals succeed at long-term weight loss, the NWCR was developed to identify and investigate the characteristics of individuals who have succeeded at long-term weight loss.


NWCR members have used a variety of successful techniques in keeping their weight off. Most report continuing to maintain a low calorie, low fat diet and doing high levels of activity.
◦ 78% eat breakfast every day.
◦ 75% weigh themselves at least once a week.
◦ 62% watch less than 10 hours of TV per week.
◦ 90% exercise, on average, about 1 hour per day.

Clearly these techniques work. I think they also fit into the positive program of eating healthy food in intelligent amounts and exercising regularly. If you devote yourself to living healthy, you won’t have to worry about losing weight. You will be there.

These are regular people like you and me. We can do it, too.
