A recent research study carried out in Europe, 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 remainder was lean tissues. When the same men studied regained weight only 24% of the weight readded was lean tissue – over 75% of the added weight after weight loss was more fat. The results proving that for people who yo-yo diet – living in a constant change of losing weight and then adding it back on again – the muscle within their body are over a period of time being replaced by fat.
Another similar research showed that the picture for females is even worse! During the fasting period 35% of the weight lost was lean tissue – initially less than for men. BUT on reading weight only 15% was lean tissue. When the women in the case study lost and then readded weight, lean muscle was not satisfactorily regained – 85% of the weight regained was fat!.
