As you've been following these articles, we've covered that all diet plans have to deal with reducing calorie input, while increasing calorie burn-rate, meanwhile providing enough nourishment as well as mental re-training and social support. If any of these are missing or skimped, the program fails.
Another aspect came in, based on research into sports nutrition. It was found that a destructive "yo-yo effect" was produced by most diets. When calorie intake is lowered, the body invokes a "famine response", by burning muscle fiber and water first. And then, when the diet is ended, a "feast response" occurs, where extra calories are stored in the fat against the next shortage.
