I used to despair that I could never lose weight at 50 years of age. But I did. And this study says that it’s never too late!
Older people (average age 69), who were overweight or obese and had knee pain, were enrolled in an intentional weight-loss program over 18 months. The people in the intervention group lost roughly 11 lbs, versus no change in the control group. The people in the control group were twice as likely to die!
