Most dieters know weight loss is possible given adequate motivation and circumstances. However, most dieters gain their weight back shortly after they complete their diet and many dieters will actually gain more weight than they originally lost.
Scientifically speaking, losing weight is easy. To lose one pound of fat, you must burn approximately 3500 calories over and above what you already burn doing daily activities. The real challenge, is keeping the weight off for good.
The Ideal Wellness NW Protocol is not just another diet. It is a lifestyle change. It’s a 4 phase weight loss method with a beginning, a middle, and ongoing lifestyle change support. The third and fourth phases focus on educating dieters on balanced choices in order to sustain a stable weight without radically altering their already busy lives.
There are 3 critical things to understand about weight loss that will help you maintain a stable weight after dieting:
One of the greatest hazards of dieting is losing muscle mass along with fat. Muscle is required to burn calories. Therefore, when you decrease your muscle mass via dieting, you will have less muscle to burn calories after you return to your regular eating patterns. In other words, you will regain your lost weight.
In fact, in 1992 the National Institutes of Health reported that as much as two thirds of weight lost is regained within 1 year of completing a dieting program. If you start dieting again you will lose yet more muscle, further inhibiting your ability to burn calories.
