Results from the Canadian Navy’s weight loss program at CFB Halifax presented at the Canadian Cardiovascular Congress in Vancouver on October 26, 2014.
We evaluated the effectiveness of a web-based weight loss program that promoted increased physical activity, healthy eating, and Low-Glycemic Index energy bars to replace a daily meal. Among the 67 participants who started, the average weight loss over 4 weeks was 2.6lbs, ranging from + 6lbs to -15lbs. Twenty people lost over 5 pounds and there was a significant (p=0.005) dose-response where more frequent use of the site was positively associated with greater weight loss.
