SmartByte™ has been evaluated in a number of prospective, randomized controlled studies conducted under the highest scientific standards. Some important findings from research on SmartByte™ conducted at The Pennington Biomedical Research Center(LSU) and at Monash University, Melbourne Australia and published in the peer reviewed journal Obesity include:
- SmartByte™ users reduced their daily food intake by 23%.
- SmartByte™ subjects consumed 533 fewer calories over the course of a day.
- SmartByte™ users ate less but did not get hungry sooner than non-SmartByte™ users.
After Four Months
- Excess body weight loss (i.e., the difference between ideal weight and actual weight) averaged 38.1% among subjects who used the device as directed. Study participants that used the device as directed averaged – 6% total body weight loss in four months.
- BMI decreased from an average of 31.5 to 29.5
- Cognitive Restraint when eating increased 47%
- Dis-inhibition when eating decreased 68%
- Hunger went from a baseline score of 9.75 to 5.45 among compliant SmartByte™ users.
