Research Finds Commercial Diets Effective for Weight Loss, Tied to Better Health

New research led by Kimberly A. Gudzune, MD, MPH, and published in the Annals of Internal Medicine finds that commercial weight-loss programs can offer significant weight loss after one year of participation when compared to a control group, which could be medically significant for many people with obesity or excess weight. According to the authors, many commercial programs show promising weight-loss results, but additional research is needed to better understand the long-term outcomes. Further, given that the programs were not compared directly against one another using the same study and evaluation methods, this research should not be used to rank one program over another.
