Written by Michael A. Smith, MD

Statistically, two out of three dieters (roughly 68%) experience weight regain, which is gaining weight immediately after stopping a diet (in some cases during dieting). Weight regain posses a significant health risk to dieters because it initiates weight cycling, orrepparttar Yo-Yo Diet.

Why is this bad? Weight cycling has now been shown to decrease life expectancy rates and increase mortality associated with cardiovascular disease and certain cancers.

This type of dieting method will eventually cause weight regain.

Why dorepparttar 150403 current dieting plans promote a weight loss method destined to fail? It's what you want. Fast and extreme weight loss is what sells. Slow and low weight loss (the method I designed several years ago for my overweight patients) does not satisfyrepparttar 150404 immediate gratification mentality of our society. In a nut shell, slow and low weight loss doesn't sell.

Once in diet shock, your body initiates a series of reactions that ultimately slow down your metabolic rate. From there, weight regain is just aroundrepparttar 150405 corner.

Remember, weight regain is not good for two reasons...

1. Leads torepparttar 150406 Yo-Yo Diet, which has now been shown to be as much of a health risk as obesity.
