Studies & Results

Advanced Health Concepts believes so much in the power of our weight loss program that we have undertaken two separate studies. One is an Institutional Review Board approved Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled, Parallel Trial, as well as a Prospective, Longitudinal Cohort Study of the Advanced Health Concepts 40-Day Weight Loss Program.

The prospective cohort analysis demonstrated that the Personalized & Supervised “Advanced Health Concepts 40 day weight loss program is highly effective—10% of participants lose an average of over 45 pounds in 40 days”

The prospective cohort analysis demonstrated that the top 25% of Personalized & Supervised Advanced Health Concepts 40 day weight loss program participants lost an average of 38.7 pounds.

“Overall average weight loss of the 40 day Advanced Health Concepts program was 26.2 pounds—14.3 pounds in the first 20 days on the program”*

Both studies demonstrated that the average user not only sustained their weight loss but continued to lose weight after the weight loss phase of the program. The average user in the Prospective study lost over 3 lbs., while the average user of the RCT lost 1.4 lbs. after the weight loss phase of the program.

The IRB approved Randomized Controlled trial demonstrated that participants of the non-personalized & unsupervised 40 day weight loss program safely lost an average of 6.13 pounds in the first 21 days.*

The Advanced Health Concepts 40-Day Weight Loss Program also called the Advanced Health Concepts 40-Day Classic program is the name given to the 65+ day program that consists of 6 Phases. Advanced Health Concepts provides personal coaching and other resources over a 65+ day period of which between 40 to 45 days involve low calorie (800 calorie) and other dietary and lifestyle modifications. Prospective Longitudinal Cohort Case Study Data comes from first-time client submitted data to a third party for tracking of daily weight loss and progress through the Advanced Health Concepts weight loss programs. All results are accurately and transparently presented. IRB Approved Randomized Controlled Trial was sponsored by Advanced Health Concepts and conducted by an independent contract research organization (Global Clinicals, Inc., Los Angeles, CA).

GOALS

To assess the efficacy of the personalized & supervised 40-Day weight loss program.

To determine short-term weight loss sustainability of the personalized 40-day weight loss program.

GOALS

To assess the efficacy of the nonpersonalized and unsupervised 40-Day weight Loss Program.

To determine the safety of the 40-Day weight loss program by utilizing blood work, vitals & assessment questionnaires.

To assess medium-term weight loss sustainability (2.25 months after the weight loss phase).

PERSONALIZED

The weight loss program was personalized and optimized for each individual user regarding both foods and supplementation.

NONPERSONALIZED

The protocols were the same for each user. Each user was given the same list of foods and were all placed on the same 4 nutritional products.

SUPERVIZED

Each user was assigned a personal coach who had access to user’s daily weights. User could contact coach daily and would meet each week to review results and make adjustments to help coach and guide the user to success.

UNSUPERVIZED

The user had four set meetings (including the 1st visit) with a researcher, whose job was merely to gather information and could not intervene or provide guidance or coaching.

RESOURCES AND TOOLS

The user was given a number of resources and tools including member only user portal, which provided an abundance of resources, as well as, advanced email and text support.

MANUAL

No resources or tools were given to the user except a “generic” manual / guide.

SAMPLE SIZE

The sample size of the study was large at 4,505 users.

SAMPLE

The sample size of the study started at 120 participants. 60 Active and 60 control. The trial ended with 36 active participants and 33 control participants.

Conclusion

Effectiveness of the Program

Both studies demonstrate that the Advanced Health Concepts 40-Day Weight Loss Program is effective for weight loss.

Safety

The RCT trial utilized multiple factors including comprehensive blood work to demonstrate that the Advanced Health Concepts 40-Day Weight Loss Program resulted in safe weight loss.

Sustainability of the Weight Loss

Both the Prospective Longitudinal Trial and the Randomized Controlled Trial demonstrated sustainability of the weight loss with the RCT showing the weight loss continued after the weight loss phase from day 45 to day 112 during which time the calories were substantially raised with the average person losing an additional 1.4 lbs. on average. The Prospective trial demonstrated that during the 21 to 30 days after the weight loss phase “comparing the set point weight to the maximum of the weights reported throughout the entire maintenance period revealed an average continued weight loss of 3.1 lbs. for women and 3.3 lbs. for men. 84.2% of women and 80.0% of men had no weight gain or continued to lose weight compared to their weight set point throughout a one-month period following the last day of the weight reduction phase of the program and after a substantial increase in calories added back to diet. 95.0% of women and 92.1% of men maintained a weight within 2 lbs. of their set point weight.”

The result of this study indicates that the Advanced Health Concepts weight loss program safely and effectively effectuated weight loss results.
Advanced Health Concepts has received STRONGSCIENCE Level 2 certification for efficacy and safety of its weight loss program.
