Coined the “Youngstown 1000 lb. Challenge”, the internet-based program consists of eight weeks of behavior modification challenges, designed to be implemented one at a time, with each new healthy behavior being built on the previous. Another facet of the program is the support forum, linking participants with each other, as well as professionals, for the support needed to make the behavior change permanent. “This program delivers the core concepts of research-supported, practical and maintainable weight change, specifically what I utilize in everyday practice with my patients”, says Matthew Good, founder of Good Health Industries and the program’s designer. These core concepts are: (1) inclusion (not exclusion) of key foods; (2) reasonable physical activity; and perhaps most importantly, (3) motivational support. Good explains, often, over-restriction of diet and implementation of unrealistic exercise regimens leads to failure, regardless of all good intentions. Focusing on the means, being modification of specifically identified behaviors, rather than the ends, being weight loss, produces the outcomes sought by an increasingly unhealthy and overweight society.
