Obesity Paradox

When you get started on a fat loss diet something strange happens. Your rather plump body is not completely happy to lose its fat content. As opposed to giving up the fat you start to lose lean tissue such as muscle and bone density.

A recent research study carried out in Scandinavia, and reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition discovered that when men dieted strictly less than 60% of the lost weight was fat. The remainder was lean tissues. When the same men studied regained weight only 24% of the weight regained was lean muscle – over 75% of the weight regained after weight loss was more fat. The results proving that for people who yo-yo diet – living in a cycle of weight reduction and putting it back on again – the lean tissues within their body are gradually being replaced by fat.

The same research indicated that the results for females is even worse! During the diet 35% of the loss was lean tissue – initially less than recorded within the male study. BUT on reading weight only 15% was lean tissue. When women lost and then readded weight, lean muscle was not satisfactorily restored – 85% of the weight regained was fat!.
