Allow me to quote:
“Myth 3: Gradually losing weight is better than quickly losing pounds because quick weight losses are more likely to be regained. This myth, likely dating back to the 1960s, has no biological basis, the researchers said. In fact, studies reveal that people who lose more weight rapidly are more likely keep off the pounds even several years later.”
Truth. That’s science.
I point this out because I am SO TIRED of hearing people with no science background whatsoever tell me that you have to lose weight slowly if you want to keep it off. This is not true in my experience, and apparently also not true based on scientific research.
