The yo-yo effect when losing weight: this is how you prevent it!

If necessary, you probably prefer to lose weight as quickly as possible. There are a lot of people who try to lose weight by using very extreme measures in a short period of time. Perhaps you also thought about trying a crash diet or suddenly start eating as little as possible. But is that the right way to lose some kilos? Not exactly.

There are all kinds of ways to lose weight. In principle, for your body it doesn’t matter what way you chose. But be aware: the way you lose weight can have all kinds of negative consequences. For example, if you follow a crash diet, you will consume unilateral nutrition. In that case you might miss important nutrients. There are also researches that show fasten can be good for you. But it’s a temporarily solution, because you won’t fasten your whole life. And there is a chance that you will unconsciously eat more after a period of fasting, as a compensation for the tough period you just had. Also, if you eat less, your body will start to abstract the proteins from your muscles. As a result, your muscle mass will decrease quickly.

Yo-yo effect
If you want to lose weight, it is very important to do that in the right way. That means in a way that your muscle mass does not suddenly disappear. You also want to prevent losing weight and then quickly regain the lost kilos. This happens to many people, because our body is programmed to stay in balance. So, after losing weight, the body has the urge to go back to the old weight. That is how you easily develop a yo-yo effect. That is the effect that you don’t want to have.
