If you go back to eating the same foods after your diet ends that you ate before, you will typically rebound by taking in excessive calories, particularly in the form of extra fat that quickly returns you to your prediet weight. In fact, most people gain back even more than they lost, regardless of the diet they followed. A greater percentage of the weight you regain is usually body fat, ultimately making your body fat higher than if you had never lost any weight. While your body’s set point—or what you normally weigh—can change gradually over your lifetime, it remains the same over the relatively short time frame of a diet, unless you make permanent lifestyle changes.

More fat storage in your muscles may decrease the uptake of blood glucose (removal of glucose from your blood into muscle cells) into those areas, making them more resistant to insulin if you don’t exercise regularly. Given that your muscles are responsible for the majority of blood glucose uptake and use in response to insulin, becoming insulin resistant in muscles has a substantial impact on your blood sugar. Regular exercisers, paradoxically, can store more fat in their muscles without experiencing insulin resistance, suggesting that the total amount of fat stored in your muscles may not be the critical component but rather the way muscles respond to insulin.
