West Australian: Wednesday 12/9th

Postby Immortal » Fri Sep 14, 2007 2:28 am

Hey, Really interesting section in the West Australian Newspaper on Wednesday under the Health & Medicine section. It was a 4 page special talking about weight loss & MORE IMPORTANTLY, keeping it off.

Scientific evidence has now found that we are all born with a certain number of fat cells... If we fill these fat cells to capacity, they start multiplying, and then we fill these up, and they multiply to give us more fat cells to fill up.

The Bad News... is that when we lose weight, we shrink these cells, but once they have been created, they never actually disappear, they are there for life. This is why people who have been overweight find it so easy to regain weight.

They also conducted a survey on people who have lost an average of 30kg, the range being from 14kg to 100kg, and maintained this for more than 5 years (the longest being 60 years) and collated the results...

They found a number of interesting facts... The rate or way of losing the weight had no effect on the weight coming back on... It says that some people lost their weight slowly, whilst others lost their weight rapidly, and that over 55% lost their weight through weight loss programs or liquid meal replacements.

I kept this article for future reference, but if you want to chat about the points already raised or you want me to write up some more let me know...

But know, I open the post up to anyone else interested???

Yikes, that's scary knowing that our fat cells will stay all shrivelled up when we lose the weight we need to :shock: .

Does the article say for permanent weight loss it needs to be a slow steady approach?

I guess it all comes down to a lifestyle change. You need to incorporate a healthy lifestyle for life rather than for how ever long you are on a "diet" to lose the weight.
Start weight - 77kgs
Goal weight - 53kgs
Current Weight - 50.1kgs


No more weighing, no more scales. My measurement is my success at health. It's an investment I make every single day. My priority: be healthy!

woohooo shrivelled fat cells! lol...

I have also heard being premature can lead to having more fat cells... lucky me... i was 6 weeks :(

but i think it really comes down to healthy eating and regular excercise to keep the weight off and that should be said for anyone.. shrivelled fat cells or not... its logical anyway lol.
SW:91kg
CW:75kg
GW: Somwhere in the 60's for now

Next mini goal:73kg

With regards to fast weight loss, or slow steady weight loss, the article stated some of the people lost their weight rapidly, some took their time. And over 55% lost their weight using weight loss programs or liquid meal replacements. All of these people then maintained the weight loss for over 5 years. The key, was more what you did after achieving weight loss, as because of the excess number of cells, we are more likely to gain weight back easier.

They supply a lot of statistics about what these 6000 successful weight loss and maintainers people did, to not regain weight... Some points are the reverse to what is considered by weight loss experts,(usually by people who have never had to lose weight), as best practice.
But YES alot of keeping the weight off is by eating correctly & exercising once the weight is off.

If you didn't get the article, (Or it was thrown away by Bf's), i can keep posting info here if you want. I've personally archived the info in a file, along with a couple of other things I have found.

Please do. I have found it very interesting so far.

I have heard before about people gaining extra fat cells and I think that means you feel hungry until they are all full again. oh the poor shrivelled skinny little blighters. I guess liposuction would get rid of some? Does anyones know if people are less likley to put on weight after lipo?

Other Studies have found that up to 95% of people put back on the weight they lost (and sometimes more) after losing it. The results aren't much better for Scientifically run programs by Scientists and the like...
