National Weight Control Registry
The National Weight Control Registry was established in 1993 to identify which strategies work for long-term weight maintenance, who is successful and why. It maintains a database of more than 3,000 people who have each lost at least 30 pounds of body weight and maintained that loss weight for at least one year. It is the largest such weight loss study of its kind.

Weight Loss & Regain
Long-term research on weight loss indicates most people return to their original, pre-diet weight within three to five years after treatment ends. We are constantly being told nobody is ever successful at weight loss. But consultants at the NWCR knew people were successful at maintaining weight loss and they wanted to start identifying these people.

Weight Loss Study
Initial enrollment in the registry included 629 women and 155 men who, despite extensive histories of being overweight, lost an average of 60 pounds and kept it off for an average of six and a half years at entry into the registry.

Weight Loss Methods
Although a combination of changes in eating habits and physical activity was at the root of most weight loss, there was not one method to weight reduction. About half lost the weight on their own, the other half received some type of weight loss assistance.

Weight Loss Motivation
The registry group was highly motivated. 6 years later on average the subjects report eating 24 percent of calories from fat, as opposed to an average 34 percent or 35 percent and doing 2,800 calories a week of exercise, the equivalent of walking 28 miles each week. That's even more than recommended for the general public.

Weight Loss Success
The most positive message is that people who have tried and failed to lose weight before can still be successful. The majority of people in the registry report that they had previously tried to lose weight. They are not qualitatively different from other unsuccessful dieters, but, in the end, they found something that helped them succeed.

Weight Loss Program
People shouldn't enter a weight loss program worrying that they won't be able to maintain the loss. Data from the registry indicate that 42 percent of the subjects felt it was harder to lose weight than to maintain the weight loss.
