Can changing your mindset help you lose weight?

6th October 2011

New analysis has suggested that “nudging” people to lose weight by thinking about their lifestyle shows little evidence of success.

The step-by-step behavioural approach used in hospitals and clinics led to an average weight loss of 2kg or less, according to a report by The Cochrane Library, which looked at studies involving nearly 4,000 people around the world.

The transtheoretical model stages of change method is used to encourage people to move towards more healthy forms of behaviour but the British Nutritional Foundation say that is not enough and people need to eat less and exercise more.
