The classic rule stating that restricting intake by 3500 kcal/wk will lead to a 1-lb/wk rate of weight loss has come under intense scrutiny. Generally not a component of most weight loss prediction models, the "early" rapid weight loss phase may represent a period during which the energy content of weight change (ΔEC/ΔW) is low and thus does not follow the classic "rule." The current study tested this hypothesis. Dynamic ΔEC/ΔW changes were examined in 23 Comprehensive Assessment of Long-term… CONTINUE READING
