Something that’s happened to me, and I’ve noticed it in some others, is that while engaged in weight training, weight loss seems to slow to a trickle. This is upsetting for many, and for good reason. If your goal is to lose weight, do you really want to lift and slow your progress?
Of course you should, despite the slowed progress. Here’s why.
Why so many people put weight back on after losing it.
I’ve lost a pile of weight. I’m creeping up on 57 lbs lost so far, and I have every intention of maintaining a healthy weight.
However, most people don’t really lose weight and keep it off. A study found that something like only three percent of those who lose significant weight actually keeps it off. Statistically, that means I’m going to get fat again.
But that doesn’t have to be the case. I know it.
So I thought I’d dig into the science behind weight loss–and not just nutrition–to see what I could find out about how to actually keep it off.
