Weight Goes Up and Down: The Permanent Solution

FAQ #2: There are two major reasons why your weight goes up and down. First, you have put your body into a fat-defensive mode and you have not maintained or increased your lean muscle mass over the years. Keep reading to find the correct solution. 

A. Answering the Question

Let's deal with the hows, before we get into the solution.

How come my weight goes up and down?

There are two major reasons why your weight goes up and down like a yo-yo:

First, You Put Your Body into Fat-Defensive Mode: Most people fail to permanently keep the weight off because in their haste to lose body fat by following a fad or crash diet, they force the body into a starvation mode whereby it defends its level of fat. This stems from our hunter-gatherer past when food was less plentiful and the body needed to protect its fat stores.

Second, You Do Not Maintain and Increase Lean Muscle Mass: On a crash or fad diet, for every pound of body weight they lose, people will drop 1/2 lb of fat mass, as well as 1/2 lb of lean muscle mass, which is self-defeating. Muscle mass is the biggest metablolizer in the body and burns up to 70% of your caloric intake each day.

How can I avoid the yo-yo effect?

Both of the above reasons can contribute to rapid weight gain. Hence, your weight goes up and down. After a few tries many dieters sigh in contempt, give up the program, and blame their parents. For most people, body fat is a reflection of what they eat and how they move each day.

So, one of the secrets of permanent weight loss is that after you begin to lose body weight, you need to maintain and then increase muscle mass during the time you are shedding the fat mass. This means that an exercise component is a must in the program.

B. Introducing the Solution

Now that we have defined the problem, we can move on and discuss the solution to why your weight goes up and down.

About the Program

The Permanent Weight Loss Program is a comprehensive approach that covers all the bases in terms of weight gain and loss. The program has been developed to address the need for a permanent solution.

After you complete the program, you will no longer have to ask the question about why your weight goes up and down. Why not? Because, it will be stable and close to your set point weight for good.

About the Benefits

The following are four of the ten major benefits of this program:

You Return to a Normal Weight: Normalization of your weight to within +/- 10 per cent of your set point weight. Your set point weight is your weight that you were at when you were 18 years of age.

You Reset your Body Functioning: At the cellular level, your body will now function at a new efficiency and operate with an improved effectiveness because the fat mass is no longer there to get in the way.

You Get to be Lean for Life: Once you establish your ideal muscle-to-fat ratio, it will work to keep your metabolic furnaces firing all day long to keep you lean. The reason is because up to 70% of your caloric intake each day is expended by your muscles. So, more muscle mass translates into more caloric burn.

You get Nutrition and Exercise in one Program: Finally, nutritional protocols and exercise routines have been put together as a team, which is the way it should be because the body expects both of them. Nutrition and exercise are both weaved throughout the modules from the beginning to the end of the program. As a result, you not only lose weight but also get trim and fit at the same time.
