Identifying adults with overweight or obesity who do not respond to early weight-loss efforts may help improve their chances for weight-loss success in the long term, according to research in Obesity.

In a study examining how adults with type 2 diabetes respond to a behavioral-based weight-loss intervention over time, researchers found that participants who lost the most body weight in the first 2 months saw the best long-term results after 8 years of follow-up.
