A recent research study carried out in Scandinavia, and reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition discovered that when men dieted correctly less than 60% of the weight lost was fat. The rest was lean tissues. When the same men studied regained weight only 24% of the weight regained was lean tissue – over 75% of the added weight after weight loss was more fat. That means for people who yo-yo diet – living in a constant change of weight loss and then adding it back on again – the muscle in their body are gradually being replaced by fat.
Another similar research proved that the story for females is even worse! During the diet 35% of the weight lost was lean tissue – originally less than recorded within the male study. BUT on regaining weight only 15% was lean tissue. When women lost and then regained weight, lean muscle was not sufficiently regained – 85% of the weight restored was fat!.
