Regaining lost weight is a common fear for many. Yet avoiding weight regain is relatively easy with the right diet and high-intensity exercise plan, according to a new study published in the August issue of the American Journal of Physiology.

Keeping Your Metabolism In Check
“One of the major problems when you restrict calories on a diet is that you lose muscle mass, and as a result, your metabolism slows down to accommodate the restriction of food,” said Eric Plaisance, Ph.D., assistant professor of exercise science in the UAB School of Education. “Eighty percent of people who lose weight by dieting gain all of it back in a four- to five-year period.”
Brisk walking, dancing, and other moderately-intense exercise is thought to combat this issue, particularly when combined with a calorie-restricted diet.
“This study has important implications for how we guide people through weight loss and help them keep the weight off,” Plaisance said. “Being able to maintain weight loss is important to reducing the risk of diabetes, helping to improve blood pressure, and many other diseases and ailments associated with obesity.”
Results In Half The Time
High-intensity interval training, or intense exercise sessions performed in short time frames, appear to offer the same results as moderate exercise over longer periods.
“The number one reason that people tell us they do not exercise is due to a lack of time,” Plaisance said. “High-intensity interval training takes about a third of the time as a continuous exercise training. If you are going to start a diet where you are restricting calories, these results could help prevent muscle mass and maintain energy expenditure.”
