Lifestyle changes can make fat loss a lot more expensive, a new study has found.
The study looked at more than 20 million people over a four-year period, including 1.5 million who were obese and overweight.
It found that people who lost weight by cutting back on carbohydrates and eating more fat were paying a higher premium than those who kept it off.
But it warned that if people continued to do so, they would face significant health risks.
“In our study, we found that the health risks of losing weight were higher for people who were overweight or obese, compared with those who were underweight or underweight,” Dr David Ritchie, a nutrition researcher at the University of Adelaide, said.
“People who lost more weight over time were at higher risk of chronic diseases, cancer and heart disease.”
There’s a potential for a lot of these costs to go down over time as well.
“What is dieting?
Dr Ritchie said the study’s findings suggest the main risk factor for losing weight is overconsumption of food and not enough exercise.
He said it was not just about restricting calories but the amount of calories consumed.”
If you don’t get enough exercise, you may not have enough energy to be able to do the things that make you fat,” Dr Ritchie told AAP.”
That’s the big reason why it’s so important to lose weight.
“We know that the more fat you have, the less you can lose weight.”
He said the most important factor was getting enough physical activity.
“When you’re overweight or you’re obese, there’s a higher risk that you’re going to have a higher level of inflammation, which is an inflammation of the body’s cells,” Dr Nevin said.
He also said people should be careful about making drastic lifestyle changes.
“You need to be careful because you can become addicted to the things you do,” he said.
