Weight management is considered a major health goal for people who are obese, but the reality is that few will ever reach normal weight. According to a new study, in any given year researchers found that men had a 1 in 210 chance of dropping to normal weight. Women did a bit better with a 1 in 124 chance. Of those that did succeed more than 75 percent gain the weight back and more. Why is this the case?
Here at The Institute of Nutritional Science we have been studying weight management for many years and there are several reasons for these grim statistics. Firstly, the diet programs available with few exceptions treat all overweight people the same. In other words most are made to follow the old paradigm of “calories in and calories out”. While this seems to be effective for about 40 percent of those overweight it leaves the rest frustrated and failing. This is because we are all not the same as far as how our bodies metabolize different foods. The first step in helping people to normalize their weight is to determine their metabolic “type”, or how they metabolize foods. Once this is done the individual can then be placed on a program that is compatible with their chemistry. This usually makes losing weight much easier.
Then there is the sad statistic of how many finally lose their excess weight only to gain it back, and more over the next year or two. This is because weight loss programs do not teach maintenance or how to keep control of and maintain the new healthier body weight. A program that will ultimately produce long term results must have a maintenance program that the individual can live with for life without feeling that they are constantly “dieting”.
Here at our Research Center we have just such a weight management program that addresses all the pitfalls of conventional dieting and in fact not only allows occasional “cheating” but actually requires it!

Obesity is a nationwide epidemic and costs more in health care than any other health issue. It doesn’t have to be that way. The definition of insanity is “repeating the same failed event over and over expecting a different result”. Yet that’s what millions of overweight people do every year.
