SARAH ANNE STEWART WAS a weight-loss "expert." That is, she was good – too good, at times – at losing weight. She'd done it through starvation. She'd done it through purging. She'd done it through excessive exercise, laxative abuse and, of course, she'd done it through dieting.
In between, Stewart – a professional model during her teens and 20s – inevitably gained it back and more, fluctuating 70 pounds for a solid decade. She eventually landed in the ER, where she was told she'd die if she didn't make a change. "My body was shutting down after years of damage," Stewart says. CLICK HERE TO READ ARTICLE!
As the thought of getting in a bathing suit looms, quick-fix diets can be tempting. A few weeks of restrictive eating and cutting calories and you’ll be to your ideal shape, right? Unfortunately, short-term diets — no matter what kind they are — tend to backfire pretty easily. “The hormonal and neural control of weight loss is incredibly complicated, which is why weight loss can be so easy in theory, and yet so difficult in practice,” explains Dr. Elizabeth Lowden, bariatric endocrinologist at the Northwestern Medicine Metabolic Health and Surgical Weight Loss Center at Delnor Hospital.

YOU KNOW PEOPLE LIKE this, or at least you think you do. They gorge on burgers and candy and cake, never seem to move from the couch and yet maintain a perfectly trim figure.But according to diet experts, such a person hasn't discovered some magic spell to avoid weight gain. Weight loss and management – apart from potential biological factors – come down to what people eat and how much activity they include in their daily lives.
"When you observe somebody who doesn't seem to gain weight, they're not defying the laws of thermodynamics, the laws of physics," says U.S. News Best Diets expert panelist Dr. Larry Cheskin, the director of the Johns Hopkins Weight Management Center. What they're doing, in some fashion, is balancing their intake and output, he adds.This phenomenon is very common in young children, Cheskin says. For example, if kids choose to go run around the block, they'll likely come back and eat more than they normally would. But then they won't repeat those same eating habits for the rest of the week.

Couples who are trying to lose weight could be putting their relationship under strain by using unsuitable strategies to achieve their weight loss goals, a new study suggests.
Interpersonal communication expert, Dr René Dailey, investigated how individuals interpret their partner's approaches to help weight loss, aiming to provide more tailored recommendations for couples looking to support each other's weight loss goals. Analyzing the online survey responses of 389 individuals, all of whom were actively trying to lose weight and living with their romantic partner, Dr Dailey identified four different 'relational environments' in which couples lose weight.
