There was an article on the front page of the New York Times this week (Monday May 2) about how many of the "Biggest Loser" contestants have gained back their weight. The article basically says that dieting can cause your metabolism to change so that you burn fewer calories after dieting and hence gain weight even if you eat normally. It said that your body "fights" to return to its previous weight. Isn't that what we've been saying all along? Trying to force yourself to lose weight just doesn't work in the long run. So eat, be happy, and enjoy life!
