There’s a reason why discipline is at the top of the list when nutritional experts talk about weight loss. According to a recent study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, Australian scientists have found that hormones play an important role in allowing a person to regain the weight they may have lost during dieting, according to the New York Times.
The researchers started by compiling a group of 50 people and putting them on an intensive 10-week weight loss program. The participants ate between 500 and 500 calories per day and lose an average of 30 pounds over that time frame.
Surprisingly enough, most of the people in the study gained about half of what they lost a year after the program. The scientists found that traces of the hormones leptin and ghrelin, which contribute to hunger, were at elevated levels compared to the beginning of the study.
