Why do most people who lose weight, regain it ?
3 Jul 07
Diets pretty much set you up for gaining weight in the long term. when you restrict your food intake, your metabolism slows down, and your body starts to go into 'starvation mode', storing everything it can get. So you have to restrict your calories more and more and more to continue losing weight. And when eventually you stop the diet, you will put that weight back on again, regardless of whether you exercise or not, generally.
