Here's where the idea for a free permanent weight loss group was introduced:

See the talk seminar by Roberta Russell on What Research Reveals About Permanent Weight Loss that was presented at Gracie Square Hospital at 420 East 76 St., NYC, NY (auditorium 100) through this video of the event along with a preamble explaining how she arrived at her research-inspired method for permanent weight loss.

If you or someone you care for are ready to lose weight permanently, consider using our methods at no cost now or later.

The Free New York Calorie & Exercise Logging Groups and their former members have broken traditional weight-Loss records because they employ the demonstrably most successful methods to achieve permanent weight loss.  They keep track of their eating and exercise and account to each other in order to keep both of these behaviors within agreed upon parameters that will accomplish their weight loss and maintenance objectives.  

Recently we have begun to do this in online groups using Skype to meet on-line with video conferencing from the privacy and convenience of our own homes, without any regard for geographical boundaries. Thanks to the convenience of video conferencing, we have become the World-Wide Calorie and Exercise group.

We simply do what works as a service and are not as a money-making endeavor. Our method is modeled after the most successful long-term weight loss programs. Our free program puts things in perspective and allows our members a chance to monitor their actions that influence weight and get them under control. It is an excellent model for free community-based on-going weight loss programs that can be run in schools, libraries, community or religious centers or places of business.

The now World-Wide Calorie & Exercise Logging Groups research-supported methods include:

       Weekly group support

       Keeping and sharing a daily written record of food and calories eaten &

       Exercise expended (specified in calories burned)

       Using the principles of good nutrition to balance energy requirements in the most healthful way, while successfully controlling hunger.


"The Skinny on Losing Fat". The New York Post picked this up.
