How does Weight Loss Maintenance Combat Weight Cycling?

Weight loss maintenance programs in Michigan

Weight loss, especially at-home weight loss, is rarely chronological. Some months you lose 15 pounds while others you plateau. Even worse, sometimes the weight comes back completely. For many people seeking weight loss programs in Michigan, gaining back weight they just lost lands a devastating blow to their self-esteem. They lose motivation and get caught up in the loop of weight cycling.

Weight cycling is the process of losing and regaining weight multiple times. Some studies suggest that weight cycling, also called “yo-yo dieting,” creates serious health problems, such as high blood pressure or heart disease. 

Working toward achieving a healthy weight for your height can lower your cholesterol and blood sugar levels, lower blood pressure, reduce stress on bones and joints, and ease the workload on your heart. This is why it’s important to not only lose weight but maintain the weight loss to gain health benefits over a lifetime.

To avoid weight cycling, having a weight loss management program is essential. Following this plan will make sure you are keeping the weight off for good.
