What Research Reveals About Permanent Weight Loss
“We are in the midst of a World Wide obesity epidemic that is …threatening to reverse the rise in life expectancy. One of the reasons why we have failed to stem the rise in prevalence of obesity is that the majority of individuals who lose weight regain most of the lost weight within a few years.
Roberta Russell has written a wonderful book on psychological strategies to help keep weight off. Unlike many others who have written on this topic, ignoring the recent science on the regulation of body weight, Roberta has gone to great lengths to report on the latest science of weight regain.

If one has sufficient motivation and opportunity to do what is necessary to create a lifestyle that ensures a calorie deficit, followed by a calorie and exercise balance, one can reach and maintain a normal body weight for life.
