According to John Hopkins Medicine successful weight loss is literally just a phone call away. A successful clinical trial following participants in a telephone based weight loss coaching program revealed significant weight loss that was maintained for 2 years plus. As a nutritionist in San Diego, this is wonderful news in support of my current San Diego nutrition coaching programs that are all telephone based.
The study, compared two behavioral intervention programs, one delivered through face to face coaching sessions and the other delivered remotely over the phone. What they discovered is the participants in the telephone based coaching trial achieved and sustained clinically significant weight loss over a period of 2 years. 40% of the obese patients enrolled in the program lost 5% of their body weight, an amount associated with health benefits such as lower blood pressure, cholesterol, and lowered risk of type II diabetes.
What they discovered is the trial group that participated in the in-person nutrition coaching program did not have as significant weight loss results primarily because of the challenge of making it to the weekly scheduled sessions. The patients would start off strong but then stop attending the in-person sessions. The telephone coaching, on the other hand, can be done from anywhere so participants had an easier time sticking to their scheduled weekly phone calls.
If you have been struggling to lose weight on your own and have a hectic and busy schedule, telephone based nutrition coaching is an excellent option. I offer San Diego nutrition coaching programs over the phone on a weekly and bi-weekly basis. The benefits of enrolling in this program is you get personalized advice and support on eating catered to your lifestyle, weaknesses, strengths, and goals. I offer a free one hour consultation for anyone looking for guidance and support with their eating habits, and looking to change their body and ultimately their life.
