This study has to do with obesity, diets and weight loss. And what constitutes the best way to lose weight and keep it off.
University of Florida researchers looked at 262 obese women who were on diets, then split them into three groups based on how fast they shed the pounds.
The researchers found that the chubs who lost weight the fastest early on — 1.5 pounds or more per week — were five times more likely to have lost 10 percent of their body weight by the 18-month mark than those who lost only half a pound a week, according to the study in the International Journal of Behavioral Medicine.
However, the most important thing when it comes to losing weight is how you’re doing it. And time and time again it seems the best way to lose weight and keep it off is to limit the intake of carbs and sugar and get more protein in the diet. This is basically the Adkins diet. Another valuable tip is to walk at least 5 minutes after eating. This will in effect “trick” your body into burning the calories you just ate for energy instead of storing them as fat.
