Why is it so difficult to keep weight after dieting?
If ever we have a diet and have reached the weight I wanted, it is likely that we know how difficult it is to keep it once we return to the diet. According to recent research, it has been discovered that hormones are responsible in part for this difficulty.
Lose weight and keep it off
When we enter the world of diets will not it. Get into a weight loss program will take time and some effort to rethink what needs very well how to feed and deprive us of some things that we like. In addition also requires us to make some kind of physical activity to help us in our attempt, but it is important that this effort not be seen quickly sabotaged by external factors such as some wrong patterns in diet, physical inactivity or even genes and hormones that may come to us at any time to make us fail in the attempt to lose weight , since it has been detected by recent studies, that some changes in hormones that may occur along different stages of our lives, can to affect the appetite and help to regain weight after losing a very fast way.
The hormones are a kind of chemical messengers in our body that are traveling through the blood to reach the tissues and to the many bodies and many processes that affect our body such as growth, reproduction, that of mood on sexual function and even the way the body to get energy from food.
Thus, the hormone ghrelin is what gives the order to the body to eat, while lepton is asking you to stop eating, so that an increase in the hormone ghrelin and a simultaneous decrease in hormone lepton, make the attempt to maintain the weight that is lost with any diet, become ends in failure or at least become a difficult task to achieve.
Similarly, a reduction of any other hormone that is related to appetite in or those known under the name of peptide YY, also contribute to retrieve all those kilos that had fallen.
Eating or not eating, that is the question
This does not mean that when you stop dieting not succeed in maintaining the proper weight. Instead, these data may be helpful to find better ways to help prevent weight gain after having made an effort to lose.
While researchers are in search of some drugs that can be used safely long-term, to avoid weight gain after a diet, you can follow a series of patterns that help us keep weight such as weighed on a regular basis, get some exercise for at least an hour a day, under any circumstances do not skip breakfast and eating a diet mainly low-fat, refined grains and sweets.
