A recent Australian study has pointed out a key reason why maintaining weight is tough, especially if you have shed some of it in the recent past.

Further, regaining weight is a constant problem for dieters.

According to scientists, nine hormones influence appetite. During the study, blood levels of nine hormones were studied prior to the weight-loss program and one year after the completion of the program.

Six hormones out of nine were found to be in a condition which would only elevate hunger. Dieters also said they were hungrier after their meals a year after their weight loss program as compared to their hunger levels before the program began.

According to researchers, the main focus should be to avoid weight gain in the first place rather than gain weight and try to lose it. Those who lose a lot of weight end up with a bigger appetite and also burn much lesser calories.

This makes sense, How many times have you seen someone lose weight only to gain even more weight back after the diet. Diet, exercise and rest definately go together, but really you need to figure out how many calories your burning compared to how many your eating. Try to lose ony about two pounds a week to keep the majority of loss as fat and not muscle. Here are some Calculators to measure your BMI, BMR,Calories Burned, and LBM calculator at http://howtogainweight123.com/calculators So, Calculate how many calories you have burned during the day and adjust your food intake to be less calories to lose weight or more calories to gain weight. Sounds simple, but actually doing it is the hard part :]
