JumpstartMD, the medical weight loss program most recommended by Bay Area physicians, today released new outcomes study results indicating their average maintenance patient outcomes are 200% better than those of "regular" dieters.* With maintenance remaining the key challenge for most weight loss patients, these results highlight the superior efficacy of JumpstartMD’s balanced weigh loss/weight maintenance focus on “fast” weight loss that is also healthy and sustainable.

The new report, based on most recent results of patients completing the Maintenance Program, shows that:

After six months on JumpstartMD Maintenance Program following initial Weight Loss phase:

  •     Average weight “regain” less than 1 pound, (0.9 lbs.)
  •     Percent of patients who lost >5% total body weight and maintained that loss: 95%
  •     Percent of patients who lost >10% total body weight and maintained that loss: 87%

How does this compare to National programs? The below compares JumpstartMD and Weight Watchers** outcomes data tracking those who achieve more than 5% total body weight loss:

Weight Watchers: Program End - 46%; At End Year One - 31%
JumpstartMD: Program End - 93%; At End Year One - 92%

Upon release of the results, JumpstartMD Co-Founder, Dr. Conrad Lai said, “This data actually exceeded our expectations. From the outset, JumpstartMD has been a medical weight management practice dedicated to fostering true, sustainable lifestyle transformation to create long-term weight loss. We remain uninterested in the latest fads, “cleanses” or temporary solutions. And we are thrilled that our first clinical maintenance study reaffirms our brand promise for “Fast & Healthy Weight Loss That Lasts!”
