2. Time is on their side
The single best predictor of weight regain is how long theyíve successfully maintained the weight loss.

If you can succeed at maintaining your weight loss for 2 years, your risk of weight regain is reduced by 50%.

You canít make time go faster. But you can make time work for you while itís passing by focusing on identity-change (a noun) as opposed to making a diet-change (a verb).


It seems likely that somebody who's maintained for two years has come across methods that make maintenance easier for them. For me, this step might be more along the lines of "find something that works for you, the path of least resistance that goes where you want to go." The difference between white-knuckling it for two years and finding something that you actually like doing for two years is immense.

I like the "throw out the last bit of cookie" bit. I've destroyed a number of jars of peanuts or peanut butter after binging halfway through them.

I was struck by #2 also...just make it to two years! The study had some interesting observations in it, but it was all based on the National Weight Loss Registry at Brown. So of course at the end, because of the way that study is designed to never accept you can lose weight by eating high fat, their conclusions are:

Quote:
Findings from the registry suggest six key strategies for long-term success at weight loss: 1) engaging in high levels of physical activity; 2) eating a diet that is low in calories and fat; 3) eating breakfast; 4) self-monitoring weight on a regular basis; 5) maintaining a consistent eating pattern; and 6) catching ďslipsĒ before they turn into larger regains. Initiating weight loss after a medical event may also help facilitate long-term weight control.


Annually, I write the lead researcher, explain why my answers would not make sense in the context of their low fat world (I donít do four of the six strategies above) but they are stuck with the study design. At least he reads my emails and answers..he is well aware of the Paleo/LC/Keto way of maintaining weight loss.

Like you, LC lets me control the "What The Hell Effect" (my favorite tip) Natural almond or peanut butter has to go in the fridge anyway, so hide it in the back behind something else. And for the first time in seven years, I made peanut butter cookies for Christmas. I can take out 1 to defrost and leave the rest in the freezer, and know that would not be possible with Oreos.

You are more determined than I am Janet. I just gave up on the National Weight Loss Registry since their results in no way reflected my habits nor did their data collection form show any awareness of low carb/paleo eating. The study is so flawed in design as to be virtually useless in my opinion but maybe at some point someone will hear what you are telling them and act on it.

It's my small contribution to getting out the word about LC. I donít even bother with the questions, only send an email to the contact researcher. I save the letters from previous years, copy whole chunks of criticism of the study and update. Iíve linked to DietDoctor success stories before and this year I even attached my latest full length photo in my profile, proving at seven years, I am still near goal.

He might miss me if he didnít get a cranky update from the crazy LC lady. He does write thoughtful responses, too hard to change the study mid-stream.

Almost the same advice, but from VirtaHealth.

I didnít cross check the studies, but on a quick read, seemed they were using some of the same.
