So this new study by the Karolinska Institute tells us a few things we already knew about weight-loss nutrition, and some we didn’t.
After looking at 20 programs that put people on a straight-bonkers weight-loss diet of 1,000 calories/day,
The analysis concluded that high-protein [and I’m assuming Low/Slow Carb] diets after the program helped people keep off the rebound weight. Where have we heard that before?
It’s hard to imagine anyone, or their body, not having a bit of a freakout once the weight or fat is lost.
Nutrition For Weight-Loss Can Be Scary At Times:
The difference is jarringly-stark. And trying to re-enter ‘the real world’ after such an incarceration is not the smoothest of transitions.
And the study’s meta-analysis confirmed it. Rebound-Gain was stated as more the Rule than the exception.
So as we’ve noted before: Weight-Loss is like the championship of a fighting sport;
You’re only a confirmed-champ after you’ve not-only Won the title, but Defended it.
Ie: You usually have to lose the weight first. Gain All or Most of it back, and then lose it all again, until you qualify as more or less a ‘Survivor’.>
Weight-Loss Nutrition Is Also The Key To -Keeping- It Off, Too:
Another thing we’ve stated here before: You Can Not Out-Exercise Bad Nutrition.
-And again, the study +/- confirmed it. Exercise was not necessarily linked with keeping the weight off.
So the only other variable clearly-associated with keeping the weight off was Meal-Replacement products.
-And of course, these are usually foods engineered specifically for weight-loss nutrition that are likely to be high in protein, and much lower on carbs, depending on whose product it is.
