study asked: How much effort does it take to make meaningful change? The
answer: Not as much as you think.
In the study, researchers compared clients’ changes in body weight and
waist circumference to how consistent these individuals were at
practicing healthy eating and exercise habits. The findings showed that
even tiny amounts of effort can result in a profound impact over time.

“The data doesn’t lie. It’s clear that if you simply get the ball
rolling and continue for a year, you can increase fat loss, enhance body
composition, and drive self-confidence,” said Brian St. Pierre,
Precision Nutrition director of performance nutrition. “With even
minimal change to your health and fitness habits, you move better, feel
better, sleep better…you improve your heart health and lower your risk
for cancer and diabetes. And, you experience a zestier sex drive to
“The research also showed that the more consistent you are, the better
you will feel about life in general,” noted Dr. Krista Scott-Dixon,
Precision Nutrition curriculum director. “This is because you see change
in your body, such as less pain, more fitness and the ability to do more
movements, more easily. You gain positive energy, confidence and
resilience after and because you act, not the other way around.”
Precision Nutrition analyzed more than one million data points gathered
from 1,000 clients over 12 months. The company studied its client
behaviors, as well as performance outcomes in areas such as program
compliance, body measurements, and fat loss.
In the Precision Nutrition Coaching program, clients gradually modify
their behavior by adopting strategic eating and lifestyle habits and
purposeful exercise over the course of a year.
Strategic eating and lifestyle habits include practices such as
consuming lean protein at each meal, eating until 80% full, and
creating a pre-bed ritual for better sleep. Precision Nutrition
clients implement one strategic habit every two weeks.
Purposeful exercise can include a full gym workout, an at home
workout or an abbreviated workout.

Every action adds up.
Precision Nutrition clients

purposeful exercise between 10 and 50 percent of the time lost between
five and six percent of their total body weight, an average of 11
Lifestyle changes and nutrition habits along with exercise drives
Men who made positive changes half of the time lost
an average of six pounds more (17 pounds) compared to men who
completed their habits and workouts between 10 and 50 percent of the
time (11 pounds). Women achieving this same level of consistency
dropped one additional pound but lost four more total inches.
Health and lifestyle improvements are easier than you think.
majority of Precision Nutrition clients stuck with the program at
least half the time. Since the adjustments were made gradually over 12
months, it made it easier for clients to implement healthy eating and
lifestyle habits, and purposeful exercise.
Dramatic changes occur when clients achieve the greatest
consistency. (Even if they’re not perfect.)
Men who followed
the Precision Nutrition program at least 80 percent of the time lost
24 pounds (11 percent body weight) and 16 total inches. Women lost 15
pounds (9 percent body weight) and 17 total inches.
Circumstances don’t determine what individuals can achieve.
Nutrition clients who “adjusted the dial,” using creative solutions to
meal prep and scaling back rather than shutting down when things
didn’t go as planned, saw consistent success.
Making some effort can make you feel better about
how your body looks, feels, and moves.
The more consistent
Precision Nutrition clients were, the better they felt about life in
general. Clients gained positive energy, confidence, and resilience.
