The participants were members of “Slimming World” with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of at least 30, which puts them in the obese category. They all attended the weekly sessions of the support group.
Those whose goal was to lose less than 10 percent. Their body weight, they typically achieved their goal and shed an average of 11 percent. body weight. This is 11.3 kg for someone who weighs around 100 kg.

Professor Amanda Avery, nutrition specialist at the University of Nottingham, said January is the most popular time of the year to start a healthy weight loss program, and in fact people have the most important information they need to increase their chances of success.
We know that now the NHS and NICE (the body dealing with, among other things, promoting a healthy lifestyle in the UK) recommend realistic goals designed to protect people who are dieting from disappointment.
‘However, suggesting that people should limit their weight loss goals may stop them from noticing their abilities. It’s important that people have aspirations and are able to envision success,’ say the researchers.
Setting a goal is really just the beginning, as it’s also important that people get regular support in making healthy changes to their eating and activity habits and help them stay focused and engaged.
It’s great that the NHS and NICE are already encouraging people who want to lose weight to set goals because our research has shown that it’s 10 times more likely that people who set their own personal goals, as in our study, will be successful.
The next step is to take a closer look at how encouraging patients to strive for their dream weight can increase their chances of success as long as they are supported along the way.
