Tips for Losing Weight and Keeping it Off

Strategies to help manage healthy eating and activity

These tips were used in the Healthy Weigh Study to help participants reach and maintain their weight loss goals in settings like a restaurant or a friend’s house. New tips were sent to participants in a daily email, addressing the different environments they encounter in a day.

The numbers shown next to each tip indicate the ranking of how often it was used by participants, based on which they read and then used in their weight loss journey. This list contains the top ten, most useful tips from the Healthy Weigh study. The images at the bottom of this page contain the complete lists of tips for each category.
