British Study Says People Lose More Weight in a Commercial Weight Loss Program like Weight Watchers, Rosemary Conley or Slimming World than by Counseling from their Doctors
File this in the stuff I didn't need a study to figure out department. A study that appeared in a British medical journal reported that people who joined a commercial weight loss program were more successful at losing weight than people who just got counseling from a doctor.
They looked at weight loss at 12 weeks and at one year. The most effective weight loss was in people who had participated in a commercial weight loss program. The least effective was someone who had just got counseling from a doctor.
