National Weight Control Registry (NWCR)


Gone fishing
Never heard of it before...but interesting reading anyway.

As many people have sadly found out, losing weight is only the first half of the battle of the bulge. Keeping it off is a totally different story. Yet, it is not impossible, as the participants of the largest ongoing study on successful "losers" have proven.
The 8-year-old project called the National Weight Control Registry (NWCR) is the brainchild of Dr. James Hill of the University of Colorado and Dr. Rena Wing of the University of Pittsburgh. What is unique about this research study is that it is not trying to prove that one weight-loss method works over another. The researchers simply ask the participants to tell them how they lost weight and how they have maintained such weight loss over the years. They hope to gather data that will inspire other people to do the same.
