Dr. Raftopoulos' results

We offer you direct access to our own results. The results are very accurate as they originate from a prospectively collected database.
Weight is assessed by TANITA Body Composition Analyzer which not only measures weight but also assesses body composition in water, fat and muscle.
71.2% of our 1,500 patients who followed our diets have lost weight.
The mean weight loss of all patients who participated was 5 kg (11 lbs). This analysis includes also the patients who did not follow the entire program or did not lose weight (intention to treat group). Although a 5 kg weight loss may not appear to be a great weight loss, this represents the mean weight loss and not the maximum weight loss and some patients participated only for a 2-3 week period.
The maximum weight non-surgical loss we have observed is 41 kg (90 lbs) in a period of 3.5 months!
