Effect rebound? Weight loss to weight gain

Reducing measures

The rebound effect is neither more nor less than regain the pounds we had lost. I.e. again bloat that had thinned even more.

People have a misperception of the rebound effect. The media and advertising in general have been commissioned of sending conflicting messages about the existence of the rebound as a result of the realization of any diet.

For this reason it is that we have decided to inform about the myths of this dangerous word that scares anyone who decided to start a diet. Nobody wants to risk to follow a food program or to consume a natural product for the danger of rebounding at the end of its validity period. In this article will clarify the questions for will finally know if it is a reality or is only a legend.

The word bounce or Yo-Yo effect began to be used by persons who failed to change their eating habits and began to be justified by this means, said if themselves or their people that the diet had caused them bounce when the real significance was that they had not had the total willingness and discipline to change their eating habits, who had returned to eat more than what her body needed and failed to control his addiction to sugar, according to the nutritionist Marcela Bortoni.

The people who make diets fashion, Apple, fats or carbohydrates, which say that you low 5 kilos in a week; people who buy treatments that are sold with the legend that low 2 to 5 pounds per week, which show you photos of the before and after miraculous people, get carried away by these food models, there are objectives to short-term and little or no realistic, which tend to lead to a vicious circle, in which the weight that is lost returns to recover, and passed, and initial euphoria gives way to discouragement and frustration.

Why people believe that they bounce?

Usually happens when a person does not worry about maintenance, which is the second key phase of a diet: first lost weight and is then maintained. This is a continuous struggle for nutritionists like me, every day we work with patients who need to change their eating habits, learn to eat and make the correct combinations.

If a person does a diet that is not customized, a diet that comes out in a magazine, a newspaper, that the account is the neighbor or friend, potencializamos that rebound effect, because we have a diet that worked only to a person with very specific characteristics and has no that operate in all organisms in the world. Many factors influence each person and you have to study each patient, look for a healthy weight after doing an exhaustive study. My advice is to take a personalized diet prepared by a nutritionist that you teach to combine foods to avoid resorting to the old habits that we were overweight.

The dreaded rebound effect

The best slimming diet is not getting a greater weight loss but which educates the lost weight not to win again. That alone gets with food re-education. When assessing the possibility of appearing a rebound effect after the diet, have to take into account the situation of the parties before the diet. There are different possibilities:

1. The excess weight has stable for several years. For example, 10 years ago that you do not increase or decrease of weight, or always abound you the same kilos.
2. The weight gain is continuous but slow at the time. For example, take won 1 kg. per year for 10 years.
3. The weight gain is fast and continuous. For example, each month you win half kg. for what, in two years, has won 12 Kg.
4. The weight gain is very important and has suddenly appeared. For example a pregnancy in which earn more after a physical accident (a bone break) or 20 Kg increase 10 kg. a year during the convalescence.

Depending on the situation that parties, the chances of that appear the rebound effect and be more or less important will be different:

1. If overweight is kept for years in a stable way it will be expensive to lose weight, because of this stability but, once lost, will be kept also stable. So therefore not appear rebound effect usually.
2 When weight gain has been slow but continuous, rebound effect can appear, but in these cases the food re-education is high-efficiency and utility.
3. When the weight gain has been rapid and continuous without apparent cause, the worst effect of rebound opportunities are important. It is the situation with worse prognosis so food re-education must be much more important than the own diet.
4. When the sudden weight gain has had a clear cause, and this cause disappears, weight loss is relatively easy and the rebound effect does not have to appear although the possibilities to get fat again in another "special" situation is likely.

Negative effects of rebound

When we want to lose weight, what we seek is a loss of fat mass, but in reality we can also lose muscle mass (protein depletion) of involuntarily. The best way to avoid this is to make physical exercise during the diet period. With it, we will be able to build muscle mass to compensate its consumption (loss) at the same, we increase the expense of body fat. On the other hand, when we fat quickly after a diet, the body recovers weight lost in the form of fat. I.e. generated muscle mass while fat is stored. Proteins generate muscle when it is stimulated while, excess energy (calories) not used, is stored in the form of fat.

Very strict diets (less than 1200 Kcal) do not guarantee one contribution enough of certain nutrients (vitamins and minerals). Similarly, folklore diets or that restrict certain food groups are also insufficient in these non-energy nutrients. When the diet is abandoned, the Agency responds to "desperately", looking for those nutrients that lacked during the restriction. But nutrients that seeks are not alone but are part of the food and they also provide energy nutrients (carbohydrates, proteins and FAT). It is for this reason that these types of diets have a higher bounce effect.

If rebound effect is manifested through the recovery of the lost weight, but only in the form of body fat, it is evident that the situation is not the same as before losing weight but that now the lipid profile of the body will have changed significantly. Now the body proportions changed decreasing muscle mass fat mass favor. This explains the reason for the increased cardiovascular risk in frequent fluctuations in weight to overweight stable.

What is maintenance?

Most people have the belief that the maintenance is another diet, but it is not. "We are not a diet", we are improving our nutrition to not return to increase those lost pounds. A maintenance diet means that you eat healthy, balanced and balanced at least four days or five days per week, this is depending on your genetics. It is important to be aware that there is a 80% chance of gaining weight but is the maintenance diet.

1 Hour of exercise a day and make the maintenance diet ensures us quality of life and maintain that ideal weight that much work cost us to get.

Do I avoid gaining weight?

With a balanced diet, they teach you to make the correct combinations since they include all the food groups: proteins, carbohydrates and fats.
