Default National Weight Control Registry

So I've mentioned in a few other threads that I've been reading this... some of it's quite interesting! So I thought I'd share.

These are people who've lost 30+ pounds and kept it off I believe a year or more. I like to see the statistics of what they did for their success.

45% lost weight on their own
55% lost weight with a program

78% eat breakfast every day
75% weight themselves at least once per week
62% watch less than 10 hrs of tv per week
90% average 1 hr of exercise per day

98% modified their food intake (duh)

Women in the registry reported eating an average of 1,306 kcal/day (24.3% of energy from fat); men reported consuming 1,685 kcal (23.5% of energy from fat).

Registry members reported consuming a diet with very low variety in all food groups, especially in those food groups higher in fat density. Registry participants consumed significantly (p < 0.001) less variety within all food groups, except fruit and combination foods, than recent weight losers after 6 months of weight loss treatment............ interesting.

There are a few cool success stories on there too!
