Why diets can backfire

Losing all the weight is almost easier than keeping it off.  A new study published in the American Journal of Psychology-Endocrinology and Metabolism, researched the body’s response to weight loss.

Researchers have found that obesity makes the brain more "deaf" to some of the gut's satiety signals, and more aware of the signals of hunger.

The study followed 35 severely obese subjects. The Norwegian researchers coached them through their weight loss with advice on diet, exercise, and psychotherapy.  The subjects stayed in a wooden retreat in eastern retreat in Norway.  At one year, the subjects lost an average of close to 24 pounds.

The researchers then checked back on the subjects every six months from enrollment to two years out.  They conducted a series of tests.  Before and for three hours after meals, they studied the subject’s feelings of hunger, fullness and desire to eat, and asked how much food they planned to consume.  And they measured how five hormones circulate and regulate the appetite and see how they reacted to eating or meal or the thought of eating a meal.

At the end of the year, prospects weight, fitness, and health have improved significantly but they reported levels or hunger and wanting to eat more.  Most subjects did not feel satisfied after eating a meal.

The bad news: "Patients with severe obesity who have lost significant amounts of weight … will have to deal with increased hunger in the long-term."

Every person should be practicing a healthy lifestyle to have a more fulfilling and wholesome life.
