A. Clínica Cormillot, Buenos
Aires, Argentina.
8th International Congress on Obesity,
Paris, France. September 1998.
We studied 286 patients, 250 women
and 36 men and registered the variables
Sex, Age, Hight, Weight, Ideal Weight
(IW), Maximum Weight (MW), Years of
Obesity (YO) (AO), Actual Weight (AW);
and Time Maintained (TM) in Possible
Weight (PW).
The definition of possible weight
was provided by A. Cormillot and A.
Fuchs in "A Possible weight.
Progress in obesity research"
1990 (pp. 663664) London; John Libbey.
PW =
PI + 0.1 (ED  20) + 0.1 AO (ED >20)
+ 0.1(PM  P Y) (1)

The Actual Weight is explained by the
Possible Weight calculated according
to (1) (in function of Age, Ideal, Weight,
Maximum Weight and Years of Obesity).
Fitting
a multilinear regression we obtain:
AW= 1.21
IW + 0.79 0.1 (MWIW) + 1.13 0.1 YO
 6.65 (2)
Multiple correlation coeficient R2
= 0.7122
This means that 71.22% of the Actual
Weights are all explained by the formula
proposed by Cormillot et al.
Correlation between predicted values
of PW and AW (this one calculated
by (2) is r=0.8523 (p << 0.005).
