Sustainable weight loss with LIVA, show two studies

Two published studies published in 2011 and 2017 analysing the outcomes of a lifestyle intervention via the LIVA platform in a clinical setting showed significant results of sustained weight loss after respectively 20 and 12 months of follow-up.

The first study was carried out by University of Southern Denmark in cooperation with Newcastle University. An average weight loss of 7.0 kg was observed after 20 months as a result of online consultations with a clinical dietitian after GP referral [1].

A weight loss of 5.4 kg for men with type 2 diabetes was observed after 12 months. In comparison, the control group lost 2.8 kg. [2]
