A current research study carried out in Scandinavia, which was reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that when men dieted strictly less than 60% of the shed weight was fat. The rest was lean muscle. When men regained weight only 24% of the weight readded was lean muscle – over 75% of the weight regained after having lost weight was more fat. That means for people who yo-yo diet – living in a cycle of weight reduction and putting it back on again – the muscle in their body are gradually being replaced by fat.
The same research indicated that the picture for females is even worse! During the diet 35% of the weight lost was muscle tissue – originally less than for men. BUT on regaining weight only 15% was lean tissue. When women lost and then readded weight, lean tissue was not completely restored – 85% of the weight regained was fat!.
