There is a science to developing a successful and sustainable weight loss programme. When people diet, their health becomes a priority. Yes, losing weight is the goal but the long-term plan is to achieve great health and wellbeing.
In-depth research goes into making a diet work properly. And a good diet must provide us with a sensible nutrition and decent weight loss as the end goal.
There are so many diets on the market, many of which are quick fixes for weight loss but have done little to zero research before going to market.
When you are interested in a weight loss programme to make sure it is research-supported, evidence-based and well established in the marketplace, like Cambridge Weight Plan, for example. Find out about our scientific roots.
When a diet plan offers food products as part of the package, be sure you are getting meals which are tasty, low in calories and packed with all the essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals. The foods should be able to provide you with enough energy throughout your day while you lose weight.
CWP’s food products, such as the shakes, soups, smoothies and bars, have been scientifically developed to provide the right low-energy diet, which is dense in macronutrients.
Ultimately, this means when you eat CWP products you get a balanced meal (protein, carbohydrate and fat), which is low in calories but will satisfy your hunger and sustain your energy levels.
So, in a nutshell, remember these 3 things and you won’t be fooled into a gimmicky diet:
- Do your research.
- Make sure the weight loss programme has done its research.
- Find the evidence (case studies and success stories) proving it gets real results.
7 ways to tell if a weight loss programme is supported by research
- There will be case studies on the website. Read them before you make a decision.
- Ask about the evidence proving the weight loss plan really works.
- Find out if research has gone into the food products. The meals should be nutritionally balanced.
- Get advice from your medical practitioner. Ask about the diet programme you wish to follow.
- Do the research to find out about the research. For example, Google “science behind Cambridge Weight Plan” or “Cambridge Weight Plan research”. You will soon discover whether the diet you’re interested in is worth its promise of weight loss and good health.
- Don’t believe everything you read. Ask people who have been on the diet whether it works or not.
Meet with a consultant and ask loads of questions about the credibility of the diet. Put them to the test, so to speak. If you are comfortable with the answers, then sign up and go for it! CWP offers FREE assessments.
