When weight loss (WL) is necessary, athletes are advised to accomplish it gradually, at a rate of 0.5-1 kg/wk. However, it is possible that losing 0.5 kg/wk is better than 1 kg/wk in terms of preserving lean body mass (LBM) and performance. The aim of this study was to compare changes in body composition, strength, and power during a weekly body-weight (BW) loss of 0.7% slow reduction (SR) vs. 1.4% fast reduction (FR). We hypothesized that the faster WL regimen would result in more detrimental… Expand
Long-term effect of weight loss on body composition and performance in elite athletes.
TLDR
There were no significant differences between groups after 12 mo, suggesting that WL rate is not the most important factor in maintaining BC and performance after WL in elite athletes. Expand
Protein Recommendations for Weight Loss in Elite Athletes: A Focus on Body Composition and Performance.
TLDR
It is proposed that high-quality weight loss is often of importance to elite athletes in order to maintain their muscle (engine) and shed unwanted fat mass, potentially improving athletic performance. Expand
Achieving an Optimal Fat Loss Phase in Resistance-Trained Athletes: A Narrative Review
TLDR
In this narrative review, the scientific literature is evaluated, and dietary–nutritional and supplementation recommendations for the weight loss phase of resistance-trained athletes are provided. Expand
Effects of gradual weight loss on anaerobic capacity and muscle strength in elite taekwondo ITF athletes
Background & Study Aim: Intentional reduction of body weight is a well-known and common practice among athletes, especially in weight category sports. The aim of this study was the effects of aExpand
No effect of increasing protein intake during military exercise with severe energy deficit on body composition and performance
TLDR
Increased protein intake during 10‐day military field exercise with severe energy deficiency did not mitigate loss of body mass or impairment of physical performance, and the exercise led to a switch toward a catabolic physiological milieu. Expand
Effects of 30 days of ketogenic diet on body composition, muscle strength, muscle area, metabolism, and performance in semi-professional soccer players
TLDR
In this study KD athletes lost fat mass without any detrimental effects on strength, power and muscle mass, and when the goal is a rapid weight reduction in such athletes, the use of a KD should be taken into account. Expand
Case Study: Body Composition Changes Resulting from a Nutritional Intervention on a Professional Vegan Powerlifter
TLDR
This short-term VD intervention was satisfactory for improving body composition and no adverse outcomes were reported and more appropriate health assessments are required for professional athletes. Expand
Body Composition and Power Performance Improved After Weight Reduction in Male Athletes Without Hampering Hormonal Balance
TLDR
Altered acid-base balance but improved weight-bearing power performance was observed without negative consequences on serum hormones and FFM after a 4-week weight reduction of 0.5 kg·wk−1 achieved by reduced carbohydrate but maintained high protein intake. Expand
Do Dynamic Fat and Fat-Free Mass Changes follow Theoretical Driven Rules in Athletes?
TLDR
When BW is lost, dynamic changes in its composition do not follow established rules and predictions used for lean or overweight/obese nonathletic populations. Expand
Effect of rapid weight loss on physical performance in judo athletes: is rapid weight loss a help for judokas with weight problems?*
TLDR
It was concluded that the rapid weight loss process was not a good strategy for judo athletes’ performance optimisation. Expand

Combination of gradual and rapid weight loss: Effects on physical performance and psychological state of elite judo athletes
TLDR
The results show that for the experimental group some aspects of performance were impaired one day before a competition, but performance of judo movements over 5 s was not affected, and the control group did not need to lose body mass. Expand
The effects of two different periods of weight-reduction on selected performance parameters in elite lightweight oarswomen.
TLDR
The proportion (50%) of weight lost as FFM in the present elite rowers is higher than the suggested optimal figure of 22%, and compared to four months, 6-7% of BW loss over two months may adversely influence fitness-related parameters in international lightweight oarswomen. Expand
Influence of exercise training on physiological and performance changes with weight loss in men.
TLDR
The data indicate that a weight-loss dietary regimen in conjunction with aerobic and resistance exercise prevents the normal decline in fat-free mass and muscular power and augments body composition, maximal strength, and maximum oxygen consumption compared with weight- loss induced by diet alone.

TLDR
The athletic staff should be knowledgeable about the latest rules related to weight and appropriate weight control methods so they may guide their athletes using modest, safe approaches that will not negatively affect health or performance. Expand
Food restriction, performance, biochemical, psychological, and endocrine changes in judo athletes.
TLDR
The results suggest that the combination of energy restriction and intense exercise training, which causes weight reduction before a competition, adversely affects the physiology and psychology of judo athletes and impairs physical performance before the competition. Expand
Effects of Bodyweight Reduction on Sports Performance
TLDR
Reductions in plasma volume, muscle glycogen content and the buffer capacity of the blood explain decreased performance after rapid bodyweight reduction; during gradual bodyweight loss, slow glycogen resynthesis after training, loss of muscle protein and stress fractures (caused by endocrinological disorders) may affect performance. Expand
The Role of Diet and Exercise for the Maintenance of Fat-Free Mass and Resting Metabolic Rate During Weight Loss
TLDR
Results from diet intervention studies suggest spontaneous losses in bodyweight following low-fat diets, and current data on a reduction of the carbohydrate-to-protein ratio of the diet show promising outcomes. Expand
Weight regulation practices in athletes: analysis of metabolic and health effects.
TLDR
A theory is presented which relates these weight patterns and the accompanying dietary habits to changes in body composition, metabolism, metabolic activity of adipose tissue, and the distribution of body fat. Expand
Body Fat Content Influences the Body Composition Response to Nutrition and Exercise

TLDR
Body fat content must be taken into account in evaluating body composition changes induced by nutrition and exercise, as well as for animals and birds, including loss during hibernation. Expand
Adverse effects of energy restriction on changes in immunoglobulins and complements during weight reduction in judoists.
TLDR
Energy restriction seemed to exacerbate alterations in immune markers such as immunoglobulin and complement induced by vigorous exercise at 7 days after a competition, suggesting that the potential cumulative effect of these changes over many competitions in 1 year might well induce abnormal levels with a possibly harmful clinical effect on judoists.
