A new Irish study has found that weight loss overnight is a miracle, with some people losing an average of 1.5 kilograms every day.
The research, conducted by the University of Limerick, is based on the use of a new smartphone app that allows users to track their progress and their weight in real time.
The study found that about one in four people are losing about a third of their body weight overnight and that the rate of weight loss has slowed significantly.
It has also shown that those who have lost more than 10 kilograms in one day are able to lose that weight on a weekly basis.
Researchers at the University were able to track the progress of 1,000 people by tracking their daily weight.
They found that, while the average person lost about 1.6 kilograms overnight, those who lost more that 10 kilograms over a period of 12 months had an average weight loss of 1kg and those who had lost less than 10 kg in a single day lost about 0.5kg.
Dr Lisa Doyle, co-author of the study, said: “People often think weight loss requires constant monitoring, but the average weight you lose over time is very small and it’s the very smallest you can lose in a short period of time.”
Dr Doyle said that, despite being a relatively small group of people, they had a good overall success rate of losing up to a quarter of their weight overnight.
She said that this was particularly significant for people who had had previous weight problems, but could still achieve their weight loss goals.
“We have found that even though we can lose weight overnight it’s possible to lose it in a relatively short time,” she said.
“It is important to note that even after a successful overnight weight loss, there is still a small risk of the weight regaining it if you are overweight or obese.”
So if you have a good initial weight loss then you can probably retain the weight loss for a very long time.
“The study was carried out at the university’s St Michael’s Hospital in Limerick and has been published in the journal The Lancet.
Dr Doyle added: “Our research also shows that those with a history of previous weight management issues such as smoking, diabetes or mental health conditions can achieve substantial weight loss without losing much of their initial weight, and also achieve weight loss with minimal psychological and physical discomfort.”
Although this is a remarkable achievement for many, it’s also a remarkable story of how our unique combination of lifestyle, nutrition and exercise can enable people to lose weight with a high degree of success.”
