TOPS Club, Inc. is a non-profit charitable corporation based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA, having members in chapters located worldwide, the majority of them in the United States and Canada. Its two-fold objective is to sponsor research and foster support groups in human body weight control. Most members refer to the organization simply as "TOPS", an acronym for "Take Off Pounds Sensibly".
•TOPS® Club, Inc. (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) is the oldest non-profit, non- commercial weight-loss organization.

•TOPS is an established and well-respected organization, founded in 1948.

•TOPS’ philosophy is that desire to change comes from within an individual and the most effective way to sustain change is to provide a supporting environment.

•TOPS is different from commercial weight-loss organizations:

—members get their food plan and exercise plans from their personal physician or licensed health care professional

—TOPS does not endorse any commercial food product and is non- profit

•TOPS is affordable. Dues are $32 per year in the U.S. and $36 in Canada.

•TOPS is a leading supporter of obesity research.

There are over 10,000 chapters around the world. Your first visit at a chapter is free and you are under no obligation to join. Bring a friend if you like. If you decide to join, a TOPS member will help you fill out an application at the meeting.

Cost of joining at the meeting is a modest $24.00 US per year ($30.00 Canadian). This includes regular issues of TOPS News well as other helpful materials.

Research: Since 1966, TOPS has funded an obesity and metabolic research program at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee and supports ongoing research there. To date, 5.4 million dollars from TOPS earnings and member contributions have helped fund obesity research.
