Telehealth may help rural Americans keep the weight off
Although many people can lose weight, few maintain the loss. Could individual telephone support be the key to keeping extra pounds at bay?
New research suggests that telehealth counseling after weight loss may be just the support that people in rural areas need to maintain their weight loss long-term. At the 12-month point in the study, people who had individual telephone counseling had maintained an average of 100% of their weight loss.
