Taking a break from dieting key to weightÂ loss
Tired of being on the diet and seeing no result? Perhaps, you should a take a break from dieting. A recent Australian study, published in the International Journal for Obesity, proves that continuous dieting does not help in shedding weight.
When we reduce our food intake, a phenomenon termed â€œadaptive thermogenesisâ€ makes weight loss harder to achieve. Participants in the study who took a two-week break from their dieting regimes not only lost more weight but also gained less weight after the trial finished.
