The Center for Medical Weight Loss Clinical Outcomes


Our most recent independent study conducted in 2010 and published in the American Journal of Medicine showed that patients treated by a primary care physician for reduction in weight and body fat percentage achieved far better results than patients treated in a weight loss clinic:

  • Among the 178 participants (43%) who completed 12 weeks of the program, primary care clinics were as effective as weight-loss clinics at achieving reductions in body weight and BMI.
  • Primary care clinics outperformed weight-loss clinics with regards to reduction in body fat percentage (3.8% vs. 2.8%), respectively.

AJM Body Fat Percentage Lost

CMWL is currently collecting data for a one-year follow-up of weight loss maintenance on these patients, as well as organizing the largest medical weight loss clinical study ever. This long-term study will validate our belief that if obesity continues to be managed with periodic follow-up visits to medical providers, patients do maintain weight loss over time. 

In our most recent clinical study, 95.3% of patients who followed the CMWL program were at a lower weight than their starting weight in one year.*

* Based on an original sample of 550 obese men and women who began a CMWL program, where 150 original participants continued and/or came in for a weigh in after 12 months.


These results are exciting because a large percentage of people on weight loss programs tend to regain weight.

Since CMWL teaches patients how to lose weight and keep it off, they may experience many health benefits, including a decrease in dependence on blood pressure, diabetes, and cholesterol medications, as well as a reduced risk of chronic diseases such as congestive heart failure, type 2 diabetes, clinical depression, sleep apnea, lymphedema (fluid retention and tissue swelling), and arthritis.
