Research Shows Weight Loss Plateaus Despite Diet, Exercise

Sunday, 03 September 2006 12:00 AM

Researchers frm Queensland University of Technology say that our bodies have a much easier time gaining weight then losing it.

Research confirming the human body is designed to strongly resist attempts to lose weight will be presented at an international gathering of obesity experts hosted by QUT.

Queensland University of Technology appetite regulation and energy balance researcher Dr Neil King said our bodies have strong mechanisms to defend attempts to lose weight but very weak mechanisms to prevent weight gain. King's weight loss intervention studies demonstrate the "plateau effect", whereby weight loss from exercise and calorie restrictions stops at a certain point.

He conducted two studies on weight loss following induced energy deficits in two different groups of overweight and obese people.
