Dieting is making us fatter, Here’s why.

Have you asked yourself what happens in your body whenever you diet, yet for some reason, you couldn’t keep the weight off?

Well, science shows us that whether we like it or not, it has some negative consequences.

In fact, dieting is making us fatter.


Studies have shown that only 5 out of 100 who diet keeps their weight off in the long term (over 3 years).

But what happens with the 95 who gain their weight back (and maybe a little bit more) should be the main concern.

Out of those who can’t keep their weight off, close to ⅔ will end up heavier than they started.

And this happens because of the metabolic adaptations in your body and (if you let it) how it will look for ways to gain all the weight lost.

Plus, if we talk about how we end up eating way less because of metabolic adaptations as well, it now means that your body is more efficient at using calories to go throughout the day (which it’s one of those cases where you don’t want this).

But there’s something you can do about it.

You can make sure that the next diet you make is the last one you’ll need to lose those pounds and never gain them back.

This means that if you got to your weight loss goals, you should pay attention to what you do after as it can make or break all the progress you did with your fat loss.

And if you got stuck and stopped losing weight at some point, you are going to get more out of the process by stopping your fat loss phase right now and then coming back in 2-4 months later to make sure you now keep losing fat.

In whatever case…

you should know that if you keep dieting to try to lose more weight (or think you have to eat as you’re eating right now to keep the weight off), the end outcome will be much worse than where you started.

So if you don’t want to get even in a worse position than when you started, then simply stop and come back to the diet whenever you have more tools to make sure you now see results (for good).

Reverse diet.

This can be considered the diet after the diet, and as you can see is just as important as the actual dieting phase (if not more), whether you got to your desired weight loss goal or not.

Let me finish by asking you something.

Which one would you choose?

  1. Lose 15 pounds in 1 month, but gain it back (and maybe more) 3 months later…
  2. or lose 3-5 pounds per month, yet knowing you’ll keep that weight off?

Something to consider asking yourself… 

especially in an era where we hear claims like “Lose 40 pounds in 30 days” or “This simple tweak in my diet made me lose 30 pounds in 14 days”.

Either way, don’t fall prey to being that person who’s always dieting to lose weight (I’ve been there, and the thing is I was dieting to lose the same weight again and again).

Not all weight loss is created equal

Do you know why I’d rather lose 3-5 pounds of fat per month than 10+ of weight? Simply because it lets me know that the majority of the weight I lose will come from fat and not other tissues like muscle. There’s this idea that all weight loss is created equal. And they simply don’t
