Take it Off, Keep it Off

by Robard Corporation Staff November 12, 2014


Once we have lost our desired weight we sometimes find that keeping it off maybe equally as difficult as losing it. We’re often told that a gradual weight loss process would be more conducive to keeping the pounds off as compared to more rapid weight loss. However there’s a recent study that combats that thought process.

Recent study published in The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology concluded that the rate you lose weight at has little to no bearing on regaining the weight. When it comes to regaining weight you lost it maybe more of a matter of bad habits developed during losing weight as opposed to how long it took you to lose it.

You may alter your diet strictly to lose weight instead of leading a healthy lifestyle, meaning your diet may not acclimate well when you reach your target weight. It’s possible that you slip right back into those food pitfalls that you were once in, causing a regain of weight.

It could also be the “I made it” factor, where you reach your goal and think the job is done. Once you reached your goal of a target weight, you’re next goal should be doing what it takes to keep it off. Remember, journeys like this don’t necessarily end, but you don’t want to have to keep going back to the starting point either.

I say all this to say that although studies like this aren’t on a person-by-person basis, the results do make sense. Hopefully while we’re losing weight we are developing good habits along the way that will be beneficial for keeping the weight off.
