Harriet Jenkins looking video with her participation: in 2010, the year she stands on the stage, dressed in a little black dress and pearls, nice blond hair is pulled back. Sounds like her name, and she gasps, not believing his ears, while the hall burst of applause. It looks like it's a ceremony of "Oscar" and the woman really looked like a star.

However, after just a few weeks after the competition, the weight started to come back. Although now she calls his exact weight, it has clearly gone very far from the tenth dimension. Jenkins is one of the heroes of the film "Superphone" for channel 4.

These men won the largest and most well-known competitions for weight loss, but most of them newly gained almost all the weight dropped. According to experts, about 40% of people who manage to lose weight badly (reset to 120 kilograms), returning to the previous weight or even gain more than the former. And it's not only about the extreme diet: trying to lose weight every year 30 million people, and 10% of them within three years again fattening.

Harriet Jenkins to weight loss.

Tired of the comments of others regarding their weight, Jenkins did not have participated in the program for Slimming World.

After 15 months of diet programs the woman managed it, and made her the representative of Slimming World. But just a few weeks Harriet began to gain weight — according to her, at about the same speed at which she lost weight, that is, six pounds a month, "I'm pretty sure it's due to the fact that I ate too much".

In the same year, the champion of the weight loss was recognized as a 50-year-old Leroy Wilson, DJ of Hampshire: a man with a height of 193 cm for 7 months has lost 107 pounds and was going to lose another 18.

Three years ago, a photo of a slender, handsome guy Wilson in a black suit printed on the front page of the journal on the LighterLife weight loss, and now again he weighs 146 pounds.

Perhaps this is one reason why skinny people are gaining weight again, the way they perceive changes in their appearance. Jane Ogden, Professor of psychology at the University of Surrey, explains:

Thin people can go back to your old habits gradually.

Tracy Mann, Professor of health psychology at the University of Minnesota, says that after a sharp weight loss to maintain their weight is almost impossible:

Dr. Thomas Barber, an endocrinologist at the University hospital Coventry, says that weight gain after weight loss there are evolutionary reasons:

Wheeler at the height of 193 cm lost weight 139 kg to 88 kg.

Is diet Wheeler became interested in healthy habits and fitness began to avoid processed foods and train hard. For two years he has lost 51 pounds and the result quit his job in marketing, becoming a personal trainer.
