Abstract Share this page

Abstract This article is a critique of the claim that the National Weight Control Registry provides data showing that a significant number of adults in the United States have achieved permanent weight loss. We believe that promoting calorie-restricted dieting for the purpose of weight loss is misleading and futile. We advocate the adoption of a health-at-every-size (HAES) approach to weight management, focusing on the achievement and maintenance of lifestyle changes that improve metabolic indicators of health.
