New research conducted in Australia questions the notion that a more gradual approach to #weightloss is the most effective. According to their study, whether you opt for a “crash” diet or something slower, the rate at which you shed excess pounds will have no effect on whether or not you will gain those pounds back. The authors of the study conclude that for weight loss, a slow and steady approach does not win the race, and the myth that rapid weight loss is associated with rapid weight re-gain is not true. They further state, “Clinicians should bear in mind that different weight-loss approaches might be suitable for different patients… and that efforts to curb the speed of initial weight loss might hinder their ultimate #weight-loss success.”
