What Successful "Losers" Do (no surprise, really)

Conclusion from a Brown Medical School study of people who have lost from 30 to 300 lbs and kept it off successfully (ie National Weight Control Registry cases):

DISCUSSION: The macronutrient composition of the diet of NWCR members has shifted over the past decade. Still, only a minority consumes a low-carbohydrate diet. Despite changes in the diet over time, the variables associated with long-term maintenance of weight loss were the same: continued consumption of a low-calorie diet with moderate fat intake, limited fast food, and high levels of physical activity.

Not what my overweight couch-potato self wants to hear, but if chocolate and lounging about worked, I'd be a size 6 right now. LOL

Thanks for posting this!
