Role in weight maintenance

Many strategies for weight loss are successful in the short term provided they encompass both caloric restriction and enhanced physical activity.

However, long-term success is notoriously elusive. Boucher et al. (2001) note that people participating in behavioural weight loss programmes lose an average of 8.4 kg during treatment of 20 weeks and are able to maintain, on average, two-thirds of this loss for 9-10 months after treatment. However, within 3-5 years they gradually return to their baseline weight. For a new weight loss ingredient to be truly successful it should encourage the development of habits that are sustained in the long term. Depending on the ingredient it may be practical for consumption to be ongoing or it may be more appropriately used to kick-start a change in lifestyle.
