Lose Weight Slowly To Keep It Off

For many people weight loss is a chronic, lifelong battle. All too often the shedding of pounds is a temporary event followed by a steady regaining of weight already lost. Most diets are unsuccessful in the long run because they fail to address the multi-faceted nature of what successful, permanent weight loss entails.

The problem with our hurried society today is that we want everything right now, and that includes weight loss. But losing weight too fast also poses a problem, namely muscle loss needed to burn calories at rest.

The ideal rate of weight loss is about 1-2 pounds a week, a Norwegian study reveals. Male athletes who lost at this ratio built lean muscle mass, while those who lost more didn’t.
