The authors reflect on the study by Lally and colleagues on the effective means of losing weight. They acknowledged the tips on losing weight in the study but expressed that the content of the handout has ambiguities. They expect that follow up researches with greater extent of coverage regarding the topic will surface in the future. They also added that the study will be of great help to the community if validated.
