Fat Loss During Pregnancy

When you start a losing weight diet something strange happens. Your rather plump body is not at all overjoyed to shed its fat content. Instead of losing pure weight you start to lose the good bits such as bone density & muscle.

A recent research study carried out in Denmark, 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 tissue – 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 loss and then adding it back on again – the lean tissues within their body are gradually being replaced by fat.

The same research proved that the picture for women is even worse! During the diet 35% of the loss was lean tissue – originally 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 sufficiently regained – 85% of the weight restored was fat!.
