Losing Versus Maintaining Weight

Losing Versus Maintaining Weight There's a big difference between losing weight and keeping that same weight from creeping back. A study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine offers insight from a random phone survey of 1,165 adults. Those who consistently exercised and chose low-fat foods were more likely to keep track of weight maintenance. On the other hand, respondents who engaged in different types of exercise and planned their meals ahead of time liked to talk about how much weight they'd lost instead of the management effort that comes after hitting that goal.

True Strength Moment: For the purposes of this research, weight loss was defined as shedding 10% or more of your body weight. Management was successfully keeping that weight from coming back for a full year. The answer might be to shift strategies after hitting your weight loss goal. If it makes you change that tired old gym routine for something new and different, it's certainly worth trying.
