Slow weight loss has for years been believed to be better for long-term results as it’s seen as more of a ‘lifestyle change’, with the slower pace helping you maintain the habit for life.
The key disadvantage, however, is the sheer amount of time it takes to see results, often meaning people fall off the wagon before they get anywhere near their goal. Another is the loss of muscle mass as a result of quickly losing weight; something which can be detrimental especially if you are a yo-yo dieter and end up putting the fat mass back on, too.
Motivation is a huge part of the journey. This can come from seeing instant results from your efforts, both in terms of on the scales and in the form of compliments from friends noticing a change in your physique.
