Our peer-reviewed research paper published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research looks at behavioral factors that contribute to sustained weight loss. Using data from our population set, we identified several behaviors that are highly correlated with successful weight loss as well as behaviors that maintain that weight loss over time. The data set also includes a significant male population, a rarity in obesity research. Findings from this research serve to improve our product offerings and expand the entire industry’s understanding of what matters in weight loss.

This white paper discusses how Retrofit program participants lost an average of 19.1 pounds, or 8.3% of their initial weight over a 12-month period. Participants that achieved their target weight-loss goal lost an average of 35 pounds, or 15.0% of their initial weight at program completion. Participants that continued to provide weight maintenance data in year two demonstrated that they sustained a vast majority of their year one program losses. This paper also explores the key factors that drove such successful outcomes from a scientific perspective.

This white paper describes an analysis of Retrofit clients and their outcomes from 1 year of program participation. The analysis explains how each component of the targeted weight-loss program is critical to the success and favorable outcomes of each participant. Participants who graduated from the program had an average weight loss of 14.79 lbs or 6.41% of their initial starting body weight. Of the participants that were considered graduates, 55.5% lost 5% or more of their initial body weight. They also had an average decrease in BMI of 2.24 BMI units.
