Intense exercise is needed to keep weight off.
Significant weight loss causes the body’s metabolism to slow down, so additional exercise is needed to compensate for the lower caloric needs.
To keep weight off after losing it, it is necessary to increase physical activity well beyond what is recommended for people who are trying to maintain their weight without having lost a lot of it. Ask your doctor for details.
