Tip of the Day: Fat loss versus maintenance – is there a difference in the approach? A famous 1959 Yale University study that health and fitness experts often refer back to concluded that 95% of individuals who lose weight, regain it within months to years. Since then, many studies have attempted to prove this percentage is not so large, but yo-yo dieting ((aka ups and downs in weight fluctuation)) is quite evident in society; I would guess 95% of us either know someone who is a yo-yo dieter or personally have gone through yo-yo deiting. “Lauren, what are you getting at other than trying to depress us?!” Sorry ladies…I’m almost there!
Yesterday, on Instagram, you may have seen me post the below picture with the caption “Dear Fat, Prepare to die! XO, Me.” The response to that picture was, in other words, “what fat do you have to lose.” Enter…fat loss versus maintenance and the above study results. Clearly, weight/fat loss is not the end result. I, just like any of you, who have worked to achieve a body that may be considered a “physical goal” known that it cannot be sustained without the same amount of work it took to get there; those who make this mistake may risk being placed into the yo-yo weight gain and loss category.
