Only commit to a program that can actually prove it works.

When it comes to moving beyond New Year's resolutions by choosing a weight loss program that achieves lasting results, choose proof over theory, experts at Precision Nutrition said today in announcing findings from its latest research.

“Most people get lured into trying out untested theories,” says Dr. John M. Berardi, Chief Science Officer at Precision Nutrition. “But they end up with only disappointment and wasted time to show for their efforts.”

“If you’re looking for results, only commit to a program that can prove it actually works," says Berardi.

Precision Nutrition can point to its long track record of success with thousands of clients. Three out of four participants who follow the program at least 80% of the time record significant weight loss in the year-long program.
