(NaturalNews) Looking for another reason to lose weight and keep it off for good? Here you go!

People who repeatedly lose weight and gain it back may be at higher risk for metabolic syndrome and diabetes according to the Oslo Study.

The weight loss roller coaster is more than emotionally frustrating. It appears to set you up for disease and premature death.

A 28-year follow up of participants in the Oslo study revealed the following conclusion: Among elderly men the number of episodes or amount of weight loss after age 50 was associated with the metabolic syndrome and diabetes, but this study cannot establish the causality of the association.

How many times have you lost weight, only to gain it back again? Every time you put your body through that, you potentially weaken its defense against these deadly diseases that shorten your life.

Why we can't keep weight off?

Many people approach weight loss efforts severely lacking in the essential ingredients that would ensure their success. Here are some of the issues to resolve.

1. Lack of expertise.

Weight loss is a sophisticated science. So many approach it casually by reading a book or taking advice from a friend. The truth is, unless you are specifically educated in nutrition and exercise science, your knowledge is probably inadequate.

Enlist the help of a holistic-minded nutritionist. You need to identify the custom nutrition plan that gives you the dense nutrients that you need, that fulfills you while economizing calories.

In just a few sessions with a personal trainer, you can learn the correct form that gets the most out of your exercise while reducing the chance of injury. You'll be surprised at how much you don't know about proper exercise after you work out with someone who gets it.

Unless you have the proper expertise on your side, you are at a huge disadvantage from the get-go. Using these resources can dramatically increase your chances of success by as much as 73%.

2. Lack of social support.

Have you ever begun to make positive changes in your life, only to be met with resistance from your friends and family? This is common. One partner starts to lose weight and the other one begins to sabotage the effort.

When you change your life it affects other people. When it makes them uncomfortable, they will push to return to the status quo.

This is something to plan for. Talk with the people in your life. Prepare them. Negotiate with them, but don't let them stop you.

3. Malnutrition.

Dieting may be the greatest source of malnutrition. Many low calorie diets deprive your body of what it needs. Before long, you get the urge to binge because your body is crying out for nutrients. This is why you need a well conceived plan that you absolutely know gives you everything your body needs every single day.

4. Lack of sleep.

Science.naturalnews.com reveals at least 48 studies related to lack of sleep and obesity. The trend is well established. If you can't sleep, it will be much more difficult to lose weight. Unfortunately, if you are overweight, you are more prone to sleep disorders such as sleep apnea.

This double bind is difficult to escape. However, you can and must escape it. Look into sleep apnea solutions and medicinal herbs that help you sleep.

5. Self-sabotage.

The granddaddy of them all, self-sabotage is a universal pattern that is sure to rear its ugly head during any weight loss effort.

The truth is, if you are overweight, there is part of you that wants to be fat because it feels safer that way, and herein lies the deepest problem. When you feel emotionally safe doing something that is both emotionally frustrating and physically dangerous, you've got some distortion in your perspective.

This doesn't mean you are a bad person. In fact, you may not have consciously chosen this distortion at all. Most likely, it is the result of long-term unconscious programming.

You need to learn how this works, so you can unravel it. Learn more about how self-sabotage works by watching this free video.
