What's the Key to Success in Maintaining Weight Loss Long Term?

Please note that some of this information is useful for bariatric patients too, not just non-surgical weight loss!

A recent study of 7,670 people who wanted to lose weight indicates that losing and maintaining a loss of 20 percent or more can have significant health benefits!

An article in The New York Times summarized the approach:

“Using data on current weight, weight a year ago and maximum lifetime weight, they tested the association of long-term weight loss with lowering the risk for metabolic syndrome — a constellation of unhealthy conditions that includes high blood pressure, insulin resistance, excess fat around the waist, high triglycerides and low HDL, or ‘good,’ cholesterol.

Compared to people who maintained less than a 5 percent weight loss for one year, those who lost 5 to 10 percent lowered their risk for metabolic syndrome by 22 percent…and those who maintained a loss of 20 percent or more had a 53 percent lower risk.”

However, only 5.5 percent of study participants were successful maintaining a 20 percent or greater weight loss for one year. How can people beat this potentially discouraging statistic about long-term weight loss success? Get more protein—90 grams or more each day!

  • Protein is great for satiety—it keeps you feeling full longer.
  • Protein helps to keep your blood sugar stable, reducing cravings.
  • Protein preserves muscle mass, which helps keep your metabolism active.

Finding a high-quality protein supplement that tastes great is so important, and many doctors recommend using a supplement long-term. Patients tell us that using UNJURY® 4-5 times has been key for their weight loss, and continuing to use it 3 times a day is how they keep it off.
