Weight regain IS NOT be due to lack of willpower. Willpower is a short burst of energy that is used up very quickly. To lose weight and keep it off takes changing your thoughts, emotions and behavior. Seattle weight loss and Bainbridge Island weight loss clients of Slender For Life™ know that hypnosis for weight loss can help you make these changes and prevent weight regain. Don’t blame your genes and play victim. Just because you have genes that predispose you to obesity does not mean that you have to eat unhealthy food or that you have to eat too much food.
Weight Regain May Not Be Due to
Lack of Willpower
WebMD Health News, October 26, 2011: Losing weight can be hard, but it’s keeping this extra weight off that is often most daunting. A new study suggests hormones may be responsible for failure to keep off lost pounds.
They found that changes in the hormonal mix tip the scale toward hunger and weight regain. Up to a year after weight loss, there are increases in the “hunger hormone” ghrelin and reductions in other hormones such as leptin that could promote weight gain.
Gherlin is the “go” hormone that tells us to eat. Leptin is the hormone that tells us to stop eating. More ghrelin and less leptin set the stage for weight regain. Reductions in other hormones such as peptide YY and cholecystokinin also help favor weight regain after weight loss.
From an evolutionary standpoint, these changes are supposed to prevent starvation when food is hard to come by. But “in an environment in which high-calorie food is abundant and physical activity is largely unnecessary, the high rate of relapse after weight loss is not surprising,” the researchers state.
The findings explain why most people find it difficult to maintain weight loss long term. It may also explain why public health measures adopted so far have generally failed to reduce obesity prevalence.
Does this mean weight regain is inevitable? No, but published evidence shows that most people have regained lost weight by five years. These findings further stress the importance of trying to prevent weight gain and obesity in the first place. It is not enough to throw a lot of resources at treating obesity, we need to focus on prevention.
