Many stars manage to transform their bodies seemingly overnight. Overweight celebrities, having been lambasted in the popular entertainment magazines, can go from size 16 to size six (and the male equivalent of a 40” waist to size 32” ).
It is not just celebrities who go from overweight to body-beautiful either... many trainers pride themselves on helping people lose massive amounts of weight very quickly, and numerous books and diets actually promise to deliver these dramatic metamorphoses “or your money back”.
While such transformations are impressive, you have to question just how healthy and successful dramatic weight loss actually is and, many cases, the answer is not very.
Very restrictive diets can trigger the starvation response which is designed to keep you alive in periods of famine. When you return to a less restrictive eating regime your body is primed for fat storage.
Here is an interesting statistic that the purveyors of get lean quick crash diets seldom share. Only one per cent of crash dieters maintain their newly reduced body weight. That means 99 per cent of crash dieters fail.
The team at The Coast Club at The Connemara Coast Hotel believe that moderate dietary restriction plus moderate increases in physical activity will always trump overly restrictive approaches. They believe losing weight, gaining muscle, and getting fit are a lifelong process where making small changes can eventually add up to something spectacular.
