Technical Abstract: Despite the availability of the US Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the prevalence of obesity in adults has increased by 200% since 1980. Although few people have lost weight and maintained weight loss long term, some have and are tracked by the National Weight Control Registry. Results from these studies suggest that people attempting to maintain weight loss should (a) eat a low-calorie diet, (b) eat a routine diet, (c) self-monitor food intake and weight, and (d) engage in physical activity.
