Why is weight loss so dang difficult? Or, I guess I should say why is permanent long-term weight loss and weight management so dang difficult? Maybe you can relate to this. You go on a diet and you lose some weight – now you’re feeling good and you’re looking good. But somehow 6 months, maybe 12 months later, you’re right back to your pre-diet weight. What the heck happened?
So you start the process all over again, but this time you pick a different diet and double down on getting your cardio in. And it works, you lose some weight and start feeling good and looking good again. But those lost pounds insidiously sneak back on to your body, only this time their joined by a few extra pounds. It’s as if those hard lost pounds made some new friends while they were away and invited them back to your place for a party.
Perhaps the problem has to do with our assumptions about how we lose weight and maintain a healthy body composition over the long haul. Maybe it’s time to reexamine he common advice of eat less and exercise more and come up with a sustainable model that works for those of us over 50. Maybe it’s time for a revolution.
