The iDiet offers amazing potential for transforming lives. The amount of weight lost by typical iDiet program participants is substantial enough to make a difference in their health and in their productivity at work. Participants enjoy iDiet groups so much that they rarely drop out.
iDiet gives impressive results in both the community groups and worksites:
- Most people lose at least 10 pounds
- Typical weight loss is 25 pounds
- 89% finished the program
In our recent worksite-based randomized trial, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, we showed six times the weight loss typically achieved in worksite programs.
The iDiet’s effectiveness and its informative and supportive group process led to repeat sign-ups when additional iDiet programs were offered. Our worksites have asked for follow-up programs beyond the first six months and seventy-five percent of our community group participants sign up for more sessions.
Weight loss of the magnitude iDiet provides has been shown to improve health in a variety of ways that can save you money, including reversing type 2 diabetes and obstructive sleep apnea in a majority of subjects, reducing cardiovascular risk factors and medications, and reducing the need for gastric bypass surgery. Payback from this program on healthcare costs alone can be under one year.
We offer an intensive weight-loss program for your high risk population, as well as a wellness program targeted to your general population. When followed longitudinally, we find most of our dieters not only keep off the weight they lost in our program, but they continue to lose weight on their own.
The iDiet has been successfully delivered to thousands of dieters in communities and in corporate settings including universities, law firms, hospitals and Fortune 50 companies. Additionally, it has been extensively tested and results published in the world’s leading scientific journals. In addition to the paper cited above, other published studies showed that iDieters were less hungry and had fewer cravings than before starting the program.2,3 Thanks to the iDiet program, unhealthy foods lose their addictive power over iDieters, helping them sustain their weight loss over the long term.
