The Key to Success Lose Weight – Good news comes for those who are struggling to lose weight. Recently, scientists uncovered a secret of losing weight appropriately. According to related research, weight loss practitioners are better at dieting and not dieting alternately every two weeks.
As quoted from the Telegraph on Friday (22/09/2017), health scientist named Professor Nuala Byrne said that the method overcomes a phenomenon known as the ‘famine reaction’ (famine reaction).
That phenomenon explains why diets often fail. For most of us, it’s very difficult to get on a strict diet for too long.
According to Byrne, a short break from strict discipline is helpful, even that is what matters to permanent success. The woman said, “The group (in experiments) are cutting off and losing more weight and keeping it for longer periods.”
“We suspect, part of the reason for the success of the diet is because of the period of rest.”
Research published in the Journal of Obesity examines the ‘starvation reaction’ of the human body when the diet is prolonged and impacts it on 47 obese men.
Participants aged 30 to 50 years were divided into 2 groups, each assigned a 16-week diet with a reduction of one-third of the incoming calories. A total of 23 people on a continuous diet (continuous) without pause. The other participants went on a two-week diet, and then took a two-week diet break to stabilize.
The cycle was repeated for 30 weeks to make sure there was 16 weeks of dieting. Not just more heavy weights, they also add less weight at the end of the experiment.
The perpetrators of the diet continuously lose 8 pounds again after six months later.
Professor Byrne from Tasmania University, Australia, is a research leader. He says that diet alters the biological process sequence in the body that results in a slowdown in weight reduction or may even increase. He explains, “When we reduce energy intake (food) during the diet, the metabolism decreases more than we think.”
Thus, there is a phenomenon known as ‘adaptive thermogenesis’. The phenomenon is a crossing mechanism that helps humans as a species when food supplies are inconsistent in the last millennia, but now “contributes to increasing waist circumference when more food supplies are available.”
So, when the diet is extended, weight loss is even more complicated.
Therefore, the study titled MATADOR (Minimizing Adaptive Thermogenesis And Deactivating Obesity Rebound) is more trying to reduce the response of hunger in order to improve the success of the diet.
Byrne says that dieting alternating every two weeks prove to be more successful as a way of weight reduction than a prolonged diet.
Other Type Of Diets
Other popular dietary ways, such as breaking the fast and eating alternately for several days are no more effective than prolonged dieting.
An example is a 5: 2 diet that strictly limits calorie intake for two days a week.
According to the researcher, “More and more research has revealed that a period of one to seven days for complete or partial fasting that alternates with feeding at will is no more effective for weight reduction than in prolonged diets.”
“It was suspected that diet breaks used in this study were important for the success of our approach.”
Further research is still needed on these alternate diets, although initial findings support the advantages of the model versus alternative models. “We are interested in better understanding of his biology to improve his approach and achieve better results in the future.”
