Key Finding: According to a new study published in the International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition found that endurance training 🏃♂️ is the key factor in maintaining a healthy weight. 👍
Did you know that around 50% of people with obesity regain their lost weight if they don’t make lifestyle changes? 😮 Can you believe it?
As a weight loss coach, I have to tell you, maintaining weight loss is a bigger challenge than after quick weight loss for people dealing with obesity. A recent study published in the International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition dived deep into the reasons behind this yo-yo effect and how to break the cycle. 📚
Turns out, the main culprit for weight regain is the brain-gut axis 🧠↔️🥗. This sneaky connection between our brain and gut makes us feel hungry by releasing hormones like ghrelin, leptin, and cholecystokinin. These hormones are affected during weight loss and weight loss maintenance programs, making it extra challenging to keep the weight off. 😖
But don’t worry, there’s good news! 🎉 The study found that endurance training is the key factor when it comes to keeping the lost weight off. 🏃♂️💨 Think activities like jogging, swimming, or cycling. To top it off, you can mix endurance training with resistance training (like weight lifting) for a killer combo that not only helps you maintain weight loss, but also remodels your body shape. 💪🔥
So, ready to kick weight regain to the curb? Get your sneakers on and start building a lifestyle that combines endurance and resistance training! 🏋️♀️🚴♂️
