How to keep the weight off for good

Updated: 7 days ago

While losing weight is difficult for many people, it is even more challenging to keep the weight off.


Most people who lose a large amount of weight have regained it 2 to 3 years later. One theory about regaining lost weight is that people who decrease the amount of calories they consume to lose weight experience a drop in the rate their bodies burn calories. This makes it increasingly difficult to lose weight over a period of months. A lower rate of burning calories may also make it easier to regain weight after a more normal diet is resumed. For these reasons, extremely low calorie diets and rapid weight loss are discouraged.


If you weigh too much, it’s important that you lose weight. This is even more important if you are obese. Weighing too much increases your chance of many health problems. These include:

  • Diabetes

  • Arthritis

  • High blood pressure

  • Heart disease

  • Stroke

  • Sleep apnea

  • Liver disease

  • Infertility

  • Lung diseases

  • Certain cancers

  • Mental health problems


To achieve and sustain weight loss healthily, one must cut the carbs, cut the calories, cut the sugar, and cut the fat. It's highly essential to practice mindful eating. As stated in the diagram below, here is how a person's body adapt to a carb-heavy diet which eventually promotes in health deterioration.
