The Scientific Predictability of Fat Loss

61-73% body fat loss

or approximately
46-73 pounds

When an overweight woman enters The Plourdé Institute program and meets compliance criteria, she will have a 95% probability that she will lose 61 to 73% of her body fat weight.

This ranges from 46 to 73 pounds of body fat weight-loss. On average, women gain approximately 4 pounds of lean body mass over the course of their initial treatment which is typically 6 to 8 months.

The statistical mean or average body fat weight-loss for women is 67%. This translates to a body fat weight-loss of approximately 60 pounds.

71-80% body fat loss

or approximately
68-88 pounds

When an overweight man enters The Plourdé Institute program and meets compliance criteria, he will have a 95% probability that he will lose 71 to 80% of his body fat weight.

This ranges from 68 to 88 pounds of body fat weight-loss. On average, men gain approximately 8 pounds of lean body mass over the course of their initial treatment which is typically 6 to 8 months.

The statistical mean or average body fat weight-loss for men is 75%. This translates to a body fat weight-loss of approximately 80 pounds.

We have approximately a 90% long-term success rate for those individuals that remain in a structured and therapeutic follow-up.

We know of no other non-surgical, interdisciplinary science-based weight-loss program in the world that can make these claims.
