TOPS does not have their own diet
This is a non-profit support group system that has
been around for 50+ years. Motivation and support is their focus.
Can you keep it off on this type of diet?
There is no structured diet to follow. No claims have been made
about how successful TOPS members are in long term weight
Group support and weekly weigh-ins can be very helpful to some people.
Each chapter is different and lacks a unified structure, so you
don't know what to expect. Diet help is provided by members, not health
Safety and Health Issues
There is no official diet, so no comment can be made about safety.
They do seem to support an exchange diet system, which is based upon
healthy eating principles and balanced nutrition.

Dietitians comments about TOPS
Decide for yourself if this type of support group can help you and
visit local chapters to observe. Look for a well balanced, long term
eating plan that emphasizes weight maintenance, not quick weight loss
to support your efforts.
