A new study found people who take part in church-based weight loss programs tend to lose more body fat.
Doctors with the Kansas University Medical Center had forty overweight members of a church undergo a twelve week program.
They trained leaders at the Gospel Water Branch Baptist Church near Augusta, Georgia to run it in their congregation.
In the end, almost half lost *at least five* percent of their starting weight.
And six months later -- a good number of them managed to keep it off.
