How You Can Steal Habits From the People Who Stay Thin

The Global Healthy Weight Registry is something that was created by some researchers at the Cornell Food and Brand Lab to gather information regarding health and fitness. The registry is an invite-only situation, so they have a watchful eye over who they are gathering their information from. The online forum specifically focuses on people who stay thin and fit, and aims to find out their secrets to put it together for research reasons.

The eligibility requirements are actually fairly strict. The members are all over the age of 18 and have never fluctuated more than five to ten pounds outside of a healthy weight range. (So no, you’re not eligible if you packed on the pounds during college even if you lost it again.) Additionally the people never should have worked with a health professional or weight counselor about their weight at any point in their past.

To check eligibility a questionnaire is given that even looks into childhood, all kinds of information about eating habits, food likes, and general hobbies. If you think you might be eligible you can try to get in, which will provide you with insights from other people who are in the registry, but maybe more importantly you’ll be able to give the scientists your secrets which could really have the potentially to help other people out there.

Of course if you’re not eligible to get involved you can learn plenty from the people who are. Here are some general statistics about people on the site who don’t have a problem keeping a steady weight.

Almost everyone questioned eats breakfast, with 96 percent saying yes and keeping that a regular habit. About half of them weighed themselves weekly, and 42 percent of them exercised at least four times a week but maybe more. Interesting to note is that 74 percent of the people said they rarely dieted, but 92 percent of them remained conscious of what they were eating, which has been shown over and over to be a more effective way of maintaining weight than yo-yo fluctuations from dieting and then returning to previous habits.

Additionally 44 percent of the people relied on a non-restrictive strategy for keeping their weight under control. Examples of non-restrictive strategies involve things like paying attention to real hunger vs fake hunger, cooking at home as opposed to eating out to have better control over the preparation and ingredients, and sticking with unprocessed and healthier foods that have been shown to be better for the body than processed junk.

According to Brian Wansink, PhD, who is the director of the Food and Brand Lab and author of the book Slim by Design:

“If you struggle with weight, try adding these simple practices to your routine, you may be surprised how easy it is to be healthy! Most slim people don’t employ restrictive diets or intense health regimens to stay at a healthy weight. Instead, they practice easy habits.”
