Groundbreaking Study Shifts Perception of Weight Loss and Health Improvement
TORONTO, May 29, 2019 – Precision Nutrition, an industry leader in healthy eating and lifestyle coaching, analyzed more than one million client data points to uncover the keys to sustainable body transformation. The insight-rich behavior study asked: How much effort does it take to make meaningful change? The answer: Not as much as you think.
In the study, researchers compared clients’ changes in body weight and waist circumference to how consistent these individuals were at practicing healthy eating and exercise habits. The findings showed that even tiny amounts of effort can result in a profound impact over time.

“The data doesn’t lie. It’s clear that if you simply get the ball rolling and continue for a year, you can increase fat loss, enhance body composition, and drive self-confidence,” said Brian St. Pierre, Precision Nutrition director of performance nutrition. “With even minimal change to your health and fitness habits, you move better, feel better, sleep better…you improve your heart health and lower your risk for cancer and diabetes. And, you experience a zestier sex drive to boot.”
“The research also showed that the more consistent you are, the better you will feel about life in general,” noted Dr. Krista Scott-Dixon, Precision Nutrition curriculum director. “This is because you see change in your body, such as less pain, more fitness and the ability to do more movements, more easily. You gain positive energy, confidence and resilience after and because you act, not the other way around.”
Precision Nutrition analyzed more than one million data points gathered from 1,000 clients over 12 months. The company studied its client behaviors, as well as performance outcomes in areas such as program compliance, body measurements, and fat loss.
In the Precision Nutrition Coaching program, clients gradually modify their behavior by adopting strategic eating and lifestyle habits and purposeful exercise over the course of a year.
