    what percentage of people have regained what they lost on this duet? 50/100?

    I plan to start loading tomorrow but have been reading a lot of discouraging posts about regaining weight like crazy after P3. I know there isn't an exact answer to my question but this question goes to those who have been on this board for a long period of time... what is the ballpark estimate of people who regain everything they lost doing this diet? It seems (from what i've read) that 90% lose weight successfully but less than 50% successfully keep it off... is this an accurate estimate?

    That's pretty dismal and I would say untrue. There are some long-timers here such as the mods who have successfully kept it off.

    IMO, if you finish the whole thing and are weighing yourself every day, there is no reason to gain it all back. One of the main benefits of this diet is it teaches you to really taste your food, in addition to learning what works for your weight maintenance and what does not.

    Most people who lose the weight do not return to the forum, so who knows for sure?

    For me, I have finally found something that works really well. I have been changing the way I eat and even when on P4, I found the old favorites did not taste as good as I had remembered. It's the LAST diet I will ever be on.

    I'm only on my 2nd round, but I had no trouble between rounds in staying on course.
    Just read Weight Loss Apocalypse which gave me new resolve.

    I did a round last August and lost 23 lbs. Gained about 10 and did another round in January and lost another 20. Gained another 10 and am now on round three. I am happy with the quick losses and that I weigh a little less than when I finished my first round. It is a little hard to maintain the low weight at the end of a round, but over all I have kept my weight loss from my first round. I have learned a lot about how my body handles different kinds of foods, and with each round I understand the way it all works a little better. I do very well on Ph 3, but have trouble adding in the carbs because I get tired of the fats and proteins and crave fruit, peanut butter and breads. This time I plan to go a little slower as I add things back in. Also I love the feeling of being thin. I am 58 years old and I look better than I did at 40! I think HCG is the best diet I have ever done and I recommend it to everyone. My original weight was around 171 and I am at 143 and headed to around 130.

    I ditto Itsy. I'm on R3. I lost great on 1, stabalized well, then went back to some bad habits. Family trauma, blah blah blah, and I re-gained 8 pounds. It wasn't the protocol's fault. I knew what to do and quit doing it.
    R2 was a different story. I lost less and slower, but stabalized perfectly and had a great P3 and a happy P4. I've learned a lot. There are some things that I can't eat. There are some trigger foods for me that must be avoided. When asked if I can have a piece of birthday cake, my response is: sure I can. But do I want to? That's a different question. It just doesn't taste good to me any more.
    I know that 3000 cals = a pound and I track what I eat. When I see the scale tick up a few points, I know it isn't fat. But it is something, and I try to figure out what that is, and avoid it going forward. One day at a time.
    If you think you can do hcg, jenny, WW, nutra, or anything else, and lose weight only to return to your old habits, you are doomed. I've done it 1000 times. It didn't work then and it won't work in the future. I've finally made peace with the fridge and the pantry. I'm not going back. Good luck to you.

    i second that. i think most who go back to their old habits gain it all back. you HAVE to make a change, imo. I think how successful you are in keeping it off has to do with 1) age, 2) gender, 3) how severe your "disease" of obesity was to start with, 4) what other medical issues might be going on, 5) how much you change your original eating habits.

    for those 20-somethings who are in good health and want to shed 20# from bad habits, i think most keep the weight off easily. for those who have been heavy their entire life, or who have lots of other medical issues going on, it's definitely not easy to maintain. i've been on the forum for 2 1/2 years and i've seen people keep it off, seen others gain it all back, and everything in between. if i had to put money on a particular category, i bet on those who re-gain about 1/3 of what they lost.

    I'm going to agree with the above. Really I know I didn't get fat because I was "watching" what I ate and even when I did it wasn't like I was checking ingredients. It a change in mentality that will make the biggest difference provided you don't have some of the issues Margie mentioned above... even with some issues if you take it as a learning experience not just a 'diet' you will come out much further ahead than those who just go back to their same ole same ole. I'm still "in progress" but I've done well stabelizing for 2 of my 3 rounds and the one I didn't do well but I went right back on the diet on schedule and had a bangin round!

    Overconfidence is a killer on P3. We get all cheeky with our food.

    I think Jonathan aka queslson did a poll on this once, and if I remember by far most people keep most of the weight off. But it will require a life style change. It's better than the average for other types of "diets", which is pretty dismal.

    The other thing to think about is that you see maybe 1 person now and then who can't seem to maintain, as compared to how many thousands are on or have joined this forum. So those odds aren't that bad. it will be what you make of it.

    unfortunately it's almost impossible to know what the long-term results are. we tend to think that those who do well don't return to the forum, but i know many who left because they DID regain their weight, and thus went looking for another method.

    I tend to think people did better back in the 60's, when the quality of food was better, fewer chemicals were added to food or used in the soil, etc. When the protocol was written Dr. S. stated that 60-70% were able to maintain without much effort. So 30-40% were not.

    I lost about 11 lbs in March/April and am now back to my starting weight again as of August. I am back for more again though. This time I won't stop at 11 lbs, I'll go to P3 for the correct amount of time and do another round. I'm discouraged but I'm willing to try again. Never in my life have I yo-yoed. This sucks.

    Hi Jen, would you mind sharing how you loaded, what your hunger was like, and what your start and low weights were? Did you go rogue at all? What blood type are you?

    I personally only have problems with the last 10 lbs...but I was only overweight for like 5 years. it is a lifestyle change though....unless you change how you relate to food forever, you will regain the weight.
