A current research study carried out in Denmark, which was reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition discovered that when men dieted correctly less than 60% of the lost weight was fat. The remainder was lean muscle. When men regained weight only 24% of the weight regained was lean muscle – over 75% of the added weight after weight loss was more fat. That means 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 over a period of time being replaced by fat.
Another similar research indicated that the picture for women is even worse! During the fasting period 35% of the weight lost was muscle tissue – initially less than for men. BUT when regaining weight only 15% was lean tissue. When the women in the case study lost and then regained weight, lean muscle was not satisfactorily regained – 85% of the weight restored had turned into fat.
