Drop more pounds than the average guy, keep up the pace

Most of us want to move toward a healthy lifestyle — the question is whether we can do it with strength. When it comes to weight loss, many dieters eat too much and put on too much weight — when they gain at all.

However, one new study, published in JAMA Internal Medicine, found that losing weight doesn’t seem to help people with a body mass index above 25 lose more weight, regardless of whether they aim for an even lower weight. That suggests weight loss alone won’t be the key to better health.

In the study, participants gained weight and then again lost an average of 30 pounds. The second time, however, they gained an average of 20 pounds in the second and then regained 12. During the third set of weight-loss sessions, those who had gained weight gained an average of 8 pounds.

The patients who lost weight during the first diet and then regained it during the second did not benefit from any improved health. Instead, their health worsened.

All of these results suggest that the initial results achieved during weight loss alone might not be sustainable. The researchers warn, for example, that patients might change their eating habits to focus on fullness rather than on weight loss.
