Worsening psychologic status leads to weight cycling.
Several studies have suggested an association between weight cycling and psychological status. It makes sense that anxiety and depression will lead to an increase in eating and less exercise. Although I think that weight cycles an lead to psychological distress, anxiety and depression (as well as other behavioral illnesses) could lead to weight cycling. It is highly likely that both have a positive effect and magnify the effects of each other.

Pedometer use promotes weight loss success.
Emerging evidence suggests that being overweight and obese will increase your risk of all-cause mortality. I know this is all-cause, but the elevation of risk is likely due to heart disease and diabetes type 2. Exercise should induce healthy changes that would result in a reduction in such risks. Although pedometer intervention is effective in increasing physical activity among adults with Type 2 diabetes, the usages impact on weight loss remains unclear.

Dietary and exercise combined are superior for fat loss than diet alone.
If you are like most Americans and you look in the mirror, you most certainly notice that your fat storage is around your belly. Sure we all want abdominals of steel, but in reality, it is extremely unlikely most fo use will get there. You can do crunches until your eyes meet and you will still be a little soft in the middle. It has long been recognized that a slim waistline is made in the kitchen and not the gym, but many people have assumed that this means that the gym or exercise is not needed.
Substantial fat loss reduces inflammatory markers for cardiometabolic disease in normal-weight individuals
I know after reading the title, you are asking yourself the question “How can someone be of normal-weight and safely lose body fat?” The question is can someone be of normal-weight and still have too much fat and the answer is absolutely “yes”. If you have a low amount of muscle mass and are very inactive, you will accumulate fat in the midsection and around your organs. This is called viceral fat or central obesity and the accumulation of fat, especially in visceral area, is consider to be a significant risk factor for several chronic diseases such as diabetes type 2 and heart disease.
Cell phone apps that self-monitor can assist with weight loss
A discussed in multiple other research projects, self-monitoring of dietary intake is essential for successful weight loss. Self-monitoring is one means of behavioral weight loss treatment, but most of the research has been done through paper journals and logs. Past research has shown that people often start with the goal of recording their food intake. Despite early success, most fail to continue over time. Very little research has involved newer cell phone applications as a means to monitor. The good news is that today, you have multiple options to follow your diet, weight, exercise, and just about anything that might affect weight loss.
High-protein may assist with weight control and lower cardiac risk.
Higher protein diets are still a common approach to weight loss. Most dieters have tried them. The problem with suggesting them is that there is limited research to support their use and some research shows that the addition of many sources of protein may actually increase your risk of heart disease. Any future research that might show higher protein diets lower cardiometabolic risk factors would potentially indicate that higher protein diets that result in weight loss might have a place in treating diabetes and heart disease.
