Weight loss study by UCLA professor: LivingLean

Apple with tape measure

A SelfHelpWorks corporate client engaged David Heber, MD, PhD, Professor of Medicine and Public Health and Director of the UCLA Center for Human Nutrition at the University of California, Los Angeles, to evaluate the benefits of LivingLean. Dr. Heber surveyed 300 of the client’s LivingLean course graduates, 46.3% of whom were male and 53.7% female. Highlights were as follows:

  • Average weight loss was 26.6 pounds
  • 85% had completed LivingLean 6 – 12 months previously, so their results did not reflect the short-term bias typically inherent in exit surveys
  • 95.9% rated the program as either very good or excellent

Download the survey to see how participants rated the impact LivingLean had on critical factors such as:

  • Motivation levels
  • Cravings for unhealthy foods
  • Ability to stick with a healthy meal plan
  • Ability to keep weight off
