Study Finds Obese People Have A Shockingly Slim Rate of Weight Loss Success

July 17, 2015 1 min read

A shocking new study has found that 1 in every 124 obese women will lose weight and keep it off longterm. For obese men, the odds are 1 in 210. The study was conducted by British researchers. It has concluded that for overweight people who attempt to shed pounds, there is a strong likelihood that they will simply gain them back. Obesity has become somewhat of a life sentence for many people. 5% of the study participants achieved short term weight loss. But within 2 years, over 50% of those people had gained the weight back and in 5 years almost 80% were overweight once again. The study also discovered that people who are heavier have an even slimmer chance of successfully losing weight and keeping it off for good. Severely obese women have a 0.15% of maintaining their weight loss goals. Not 15%, 0.15%. "Priority needs to be placed on preventing weight gain in the first place." says Dr Alison Fildes, author of the study. "Current strategies to tackle obesity, which mainly focus on cutting calories and boosting physical activity, are failing to help the majority of obese patients to shed weight and maintain that weight loss." "A multi-million dieting business exists due to obese people yo-yoing from one diet to another in the hope that such-and-such regimen will do the trick. It very rarely does." explains Tam Fry of the National Obesity Forum. What are your thoughts on this issue? Should our priority be on education and preventative methods for future generations?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number.
