The authors of a recently-released study in the Journal of Obesity say they have found the solution to the age old problem of losing weight and keeping it off for good. So, when it comes to weight loss, that means I’ve got good news and I’ve got bad news.
First, the bad news: Most people whi lose weight gain 40 percent of their lost weight in the first year after weight loss; and, eventually regain everything they lost within five years.
The good news? There’s a pretty easy way to avoid being one of those ugly statistics.
A process called the Calorie Titration Method (CTM) resulted in significant weight loss differences between experimental and control groups during a 2-year study.
According to a news release from Cornell University, the Caloric Titration Method is really nothing more complex than stepping on a scale and checking off a data point on a chart that hangs on a bathroom wall over the scale.
You just need a bathroom scale and an excel spreadsheet or even a piece of graph paper, said David Levitsky, professor of nutrition and psychology at Cornell and the papers senior author. Dr. Levitsky tells readers that the method forces you to be aware of the connection between your eating and your weight. It used to be taught that you shouldnt weigh yourself daily, and this is just the reverse.
