A new research study carried out in Denmark, and reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition discovered that when men dieted correctly less than 60% of the lost weight was fat. The rest was lean muscle. When the same men studied regained weight only 24% of the weight they put back on was lean tissue – over 75% of the added weight after having lost weight was more fat. The results proving that for people who yo-yo diet – living in a cycle of weight loss and putting it back on again – the lean tissues in their body are over a period of time being replaced by fat.
Another similar research proved that the results for women is even worse! During the weight loss diet 35% of the weight lost was muscle tissue – originally less than for men. BUT when regaining weight only 15% was lean tissue. When women lost and then regained weight, lean muscle was not completely restored – 85% of the weight regained was fat!.
