Kaiser Permanente Helps Members Achieve Weight Loss with Education &

Outreach

OAKLAND, Calif., March 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Findings in the Journal of the American Medical Association on the largest weight loss maintenance study to date reinforce Kaiser Permanente's approach to obesity prevention. The combination of both personal contact and web-based support are identified as the key to successful, long-term weight management. Kaiser Permanente's Center for Health Research in Portland, Ore., was the coordinating center for the Weight Loss Maintenance Trial of 1,032 overweight and obese adults and provided five of the study co-authors.

"The big discovery of this study is that losing weight and keeping it off is possible if you have ongoing, long-term support," said study second author Victor J. Stevens, Ph.D. a senior researcher at Kaiser Permanente's Center for Health Research. "Everyone in this country -- men, women, and children of every racial group -- is getting heavier because our society promotes eating too much and not getting enough exercise. We all need a personal health coach, and hopefully health care systems can provide that. That's why Kaiser Permanente does research: to find successful programs that fit into routine medical care, and that's what this study shows."

The study, presented at the American Heart Association's Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Metabolism Council Meeting in Colorado Springs, Colo., found that brief personal counseling and web-based intervention strategies offer the best hope in keeping weight off over three years. Of the study's participants, 287 were from Kaiser Permanente's Northwest region.

"The takeaway message of this study for people wanting to keep weight off long-term is: adopt a healthy diet; focus on lifestyle changes you can sustain; reduce calorie intake; keep notes daily on how much you eat and exercise; set specific, realistic goals you can meet;
