Lose Weight for Your Heart's Sake

By focusing on changing one's habits and routines over time, behavioral weight reduction programs may help individuals achieve.

When people lose weight by behavioral methods, they often regain part of it back. 

Several observational studies have shown that rapid weight reduction followed by rapid weight return is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

Yet, as the authors of this review point out, there is a dearth of information from controlled trials and long-term follow-up research.

This idea has become a roadblock in the provision of weight-loss assistance. Losing weight is an effective method for persons.

An extensive behavioral weight reduction program was compared to a less intense program or no program at all for the risk factors .

Several settings and methods of administration were used in the research (in person, app-based, telephone, etc.).

More than 50,000 people were tracked for an average of 28 months across 124 investigations by the research team.

Across trials, participants lost an average of 5-10 pounds (2-5 kg). Regaining between 0.12 and 0.32 kg (0.26 and 0.7 lb) year was typical.

The average age of the participants was 51, and their average body mass index was 33, making them obese.

 Once the weight reduction program stopped, the reduced risk factors persisted for at least five years.
