Twenty women, all between the ages of 22-42 and with a body mass index (BMI) higher than 27, were divided into two groups. The women who followed a regimen of a 2,000 calories per day diet, daily exercise and weekly acupuncture treatment, lost on average, more than twice as much weight as those who only dieted and exercised, even if they did not comply exactly with the treatment plan.
