Consider Cathy, a 56-year-old diabetic woman from Ohio who suffered from hypertension. By the end of her recommended four-week stay at Structure House, she had achieved a dramatic health makeover*.

  • Cholesterol decreased from 283 to 230
  • Blood sugar lowered from 323 to 150
  • Weight dropped from 224 to 209 pounds
  • Blood pressure reduced from 149/88 to 122/80; reduced by one-half
  • Insulin reduced by one-third

Healthy weight loss research is an important component of the Structure House program, and our findings are routinely presented at obesity conferences and published in peer-reviewed journals. A recent study looked at average weight loss of male and female guests, with these findings*:

Average 4-week Weight Loss for Men:

  • 6% of body weight
  • Beginning average weight: 322 lbs.
  • Ending average weight: 301 lbs.
  • Average weight loss: 21 lbs.

Average 4-week Weight Loss for Women:

  • 5% of body weight
  • Beginning average weight: 250 lbs
  • Ending average weight: 235 lbs.
  • Average weight loss: 15 lbs.

Over a one-year period the average man lost 47 lbs. and the average woman lost 31 lbs, and 86% have maintained their weight loss 2 years following participation in the Core Program1
