  • Yo-Yo Dieting - No-No Dieting

    By analysing the science behind the fad diet, this article will discuss why yo-yo dieting can be of major concern.
  • Weight Loss Fundamentals - Mindset (Video Blog)

    I have just finished recording our latest blog - but our first video blog!

    During this ~11 minute video, I discuss a topic that I am particularly passionate about - your mindset when it comes to weight loss. As I have written about in the past, weight loss has often got very little to do with a particular exercise, or a particular food or supplement - but moreso with your mindset and lifestyle. I go into more detail during this video to explain my thoughts on the matter, and why many people fail at long-term, sustainable weight loss.

    I would greatly appreciate your feedback with this video blog. Personally I feel that video is a much more powerful medium to convey messages rather than in written format. So if you do get some value from this discussion, please let me know and I would be more than happy to take on board any feedback to improve subsequent video blogs!

    I hope you enjoy the discussion on weight loss!

  • Kerryn, will rapid weight loss, rather than gradual weight loss, result in excess loose skin?

     

    No.  I lost "only" 20 kg over an entire year with a sensible training and meal plan and I have loose skin.

    It comes down to a lot of different factors, such as genetics and how big you got, but realistically, skin can only stretch so far. Once you go beyond a certain point you get stretch marks, which are breaks in the collagen fibres of the middle layer of skin - and those cannot be repaired. Once that layer of skin breaks, it ain't going to shrink back completely.

    So people who lose a LOT of weight, like The Biggest Loser contestants, are pretty much guaranteed to end up with baggy skin, no matter how they go about the weight loss. I know a couple of people who lost 60+ kg and did it over more than a year, following Body-for-LIFE, and both had abdominoplasties.

    Bummer, really, but being a normal weight with saggy skin is a far better choice than being obese, no matter how you look at it.
