The Curse Of The Rebound Pound
by Carolyn Hansen & Rebound Free Weight Loss
I knew it. Not only is dieting a BAD way to get rid of those extra pounds of unwanted body fat - it's a REALLY bad way.
That's because there is now a TON of evidence that suggests the act of dieting does more than strip off fat.
It messes up your appetite-related hormones.
That is to say, it lowers the levels of the hormones, like leptin and peptide YY, that suppress hunger.
And it raise levels of those hormones, like ghrelin, that increase your appetite.
Researchers in Australia convinced a gaggle of obese people to take one for the human race and submit to an eye-watering diet of no more than 550 calories for an eight week period.
Me, I have lasted about two days on that diet.
By the time the group was released from their restraints (yes, I'm just kidding) they had lost weight alright - about 30 pounds.
But more interesting was the effect of the dieting on their brains.
Members of the group reported being far more obsessed about food after the study than before it.
For most people coming off a diet this effect causes them to eat MORE than enough to replace the weight they have lost, and then a little more to boot.
Call it the "curse of the rebound pounds".
More often than not, dieters end up heavier after dieting than when they started their weight loss attempt.
You can blame the action of countless centuries of evolutionary fine tuning for this.
We have evolved a biology that reacts to a perceived famine by dialing up our foraging response so as to compensate for calories lost and prepare us for a similar event in the near future.
The end result is that anyone who practices yo-yo dieting is literally handicapping their future ability to lose weight.
So what is one to do to put the fruitless dieting attempts to rest for good, but at the same time move towards a reduced body weight?
Carolyn Hansen, a 30+ year veteran of the weight loss wars, has produced a special report that delves into the subject of yo-yo dieting.
She calls it "Stop The Body Weight Bounce" and you can download a FREE copy of it here:

Carolyn says you can stop dieting and still lose weight simply by changing your approach to eating.
In fact, she says part of the secret to losing weight is to eat more, not less.
The trick, is knowing WHAT to eat.
