Can’t Lose Weight by Dieting Alone? Researchers Have Bad News

Most weight loss experts will tell you the way to lose weight is to burn more calories than you consume and if you are overweight that likely means cutting back on your calories and going on some sort of diet and usually it is one of the most effective ways of losing weight, but that’s not always the case.

There are many people out there who have tried various diets with little to no success and it may make you question why that is. There are those who even try starve themselves to cut calories but still don’t see results and guess what? You’re not alone. So, why aren’t these diets as successful for some people as others?

This is a question researchers at the University of Ottawa have been studying and their results now look to show that there is a separate group of obese or overweight people who are especially resistant to losing weight through dietary changes.

These findings contradict a long-held belief that diet alone is enough to bring about significant weight loss, with exercise added as a supplemental treatment to help boost the benefits of healthy eating. This is why surgical or non-surgical weight loss options might be best for some individuals.
