“We need to know if the changes patients make stick, but it’s always been a challenge to get long-term weigh-ins after people leave the program.  We were happy to get a 40% response rate for this study, and even happier to find that  these patients were keeping off an average of 85% of the weight they’d lost after leaving” ~ Douglas Carney, M.D.
