Fat Loss During Pregnancy

When you embark on a weight loss diet something strange happens. Your overweight body is not completely overjoyed to shed its fat content. Instead you start to lose the good bits such as muscle and bone density.

A recent research study carried out in Europe, and reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that when men dieted correctly less than 60% of the lost weight was fat. The remainder was lean tissues. When men regained weight only 24% of the weight they put back on was lean muscle – over 75% of the added weight after having lost weight was more fat. That means for people who yo-yo diet – living in a constant change of weight reduction and then adding it back on again – the lean tissues within their body are over a period of time being replaced by fat.

The same research indicated that the results for females is even worse! During the diet 35% of the weight lost was muscle tissue – originally less than for men. BUT on reading weight only 15% was lean tissue. When women lost and then regained weight, lean muscle was not completely regained – 85% of the weight regained had turned into fat.
