ALMOST everyone who struggles with weight has been there: Losing weight was the easy part, but the biggest battle is keeping it off. So why is long-term weight maintenance so difficult?
Some experts claim that it is due to a change in metabolism i.e. the person who lost weight may have heavily restricted their calorie intake to reach goal, however, all this did was slow down the rate at which they burn future calories. So as soon as ‘normal’ eating is resumed, the weight just piles on as the body has lost its ability to metabolise it effectively.
Unfortunately, this can happen as a result of wanting to lose weight as quickly as possible. As we live in the 21st century, we want instant success in everything we do. However, effective weight loss is anything but immediate. A radical weight loss plan may get rapid results in the short-term (which is a big motivator) but then you need the knowledge move into long-term weight maintenance mode — and this is where many a crash-dieter comes undone.
A better approach is to take the focus off “the quickest way to lose weight” – after all, you are destined to fail in the long term. Instead, look for positive lifestyle changes which allow you to adapt to new healthy habits, making it less likely that you will revert to old ways.
