    About 20 years ago when good carbs were finally being recognized and recommended, there was an article I came across about a physician who put several clients on a weight loss diet. There were furious as this was one of those unusual groups of people (at least from my point of view) who were very thin and needed to gain weight. He took them off the diet, and they proceeded to gain back their lost weight, and actually gained more. This was his sole purpose. Sound familiar? The more frequently you “diet”, the more yo-yo-ing your body has to endure. Thus resulting in weight gain for most.
