In the past few weeks, you may have seen information about a study of The Biggest Loser contestants and their issues with sustaining the changes that they made to their bodies on the show. If you missed it, The New York Times article, “After ‘The Biggest Loser,’ Their Bodies Fought to Regain Weight” has a great recap of the findings, including this key point: the contestants’ metabolisms actually slowed down and stopped burning enough calories to keep all the weight they had lost off. How frustrating is that? Despite you trying to lose weight, your metabolism actually slows down once you stop dieting, which can make it hard to keep the weight off long-term.
Psychological factors like depriving yourself of food you want to eat make it very hard to stick with your diet to begin with, but after you’ve tried every fad diet or juice cleanse only to find out that your body may be sabotaging your long-term process would be enough to make most people give up on dieting.
