Researchers from Stanford University advise people who are looking forward to lose their weight to maintain stable weight before following a strict diet. They suggested that losing weight step by step will help keep it off for long term.
A recent study included 267 obese women, who were divided into two groups. Women in one of the groups were immediately put on a 20-week weight loss course and the other group women were initially for eight-weeks made aware of the methods to maintain weight.
The methods included, monitoring weight daily, rarely eating junk food, trimming oneself before a vacation and trying not to lose or gain over five pounds.
Researchers found that managing weight before adopting fitness and dieting regimes helps an individual stay trim for a long duration, in comparison to those opting for crash diets.
On the other hand, people who stick to crash diets just after thinking t lose weight are less likely to maintain their weight and gain weight after a short span of time.
Several studies conducted previously conclude that a manageable body weight can help lower the chances of heart ailments and if an individual is successful in losing 5% to 10% of their body weight, then are availing the benefit of the same. However, after completing their diet regimes, majority of people fail to maintain their lowered weights.
