Los Angeles, CA – 1/31/2014—
A groundbreaking study from The Miriam Hospital is highlighting behaviorpatterns and key features of a healthy lifestyle that make long-term weightloss maintenance possible if followed closely.
The study was conducted over a ten year period and followed nearly 3,000participants in their lifestyle habits after they had lost at least 30pounds. Each of the participants hadkept the weight off for over a year when they enrolled in the National WeightControl Registry that assisted with the study.
On the whole, the study highlighted how important it is to makeadaptable changes to a lifestyle that can be maintained long-term. Of those involved, 87 percent of participantshad maintained at least 10 percent of their initial weight loss by five yearsinto the study, and the habits they engaged in were all developed during thecourse of their beginning weight loss period.
These habits included increased physical activity, self-weighing formonitoring, low-fat diets, and an active effort to avoid overeating. All of these habits are beneficial foranyone, even those not needing to lose weight or maintain a reduction.
These results tell researchers that it is possible to cross the finishline of a weight loss race and still keep running, as long as the personadheres to the same habits and activities that they developed over the initialcourse.
Keeping up these habits will not only help the person possibly lose morethan their initial goal, but also maintain that weight loss over the course oftheir life. This will lead to decreasesin health issues and physical problems, as well as overall life satisfaction,all of which can increase longevity.
