A steady pace could prove a win­ner in keep­ing ki­los off longterm, ac­cord­ing to a study from Drexel Univer­sity in the US.

Peo­ple who lost con­sis­tent amounts of weight in the first few months of a year-long pro­gram had lost more weight two years down the track than those whose early losses fluc­tu­ated, ac­cord­ing to a study of 183 par­tic­i­pants.

“It seems that de­vel­op­ing sta­ble, re­peat­able be­hav­iours re­lated to food in­take and weight loss early on in a weight-con­trol pro­gram is re­ally im­por­tant for main­tain­ing changes over the long term,” says the study’s lead au­thor, Emily Feig.
