A recent research study carried out in Europe, and reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that when men dieted strictly less than 60% of the weight lost was fat. The rest was lean muscle. When the same men studied regained weight only 24% of the weight regained was lean muscle – over 75% of the added weight after weight loss was more fat. That means for people who yo-yo diet – living in a constant change of losing weight and then adding it back on again – the lean tissues in their body are gradually being replaced by fat.
The same research indicated that the picture for women is even worse! During the diet 35% of the lost weight was muscle tissue – originally less than recorded within the male study. BUT on reading weight only 15% was lean tissue. When women lost and then readded weight, lean tissue was not satisfactorily restored – 85% of the weight regained had turned into fat.
