The best way to keep the weight off following a diet is to eat more protein like lean meat, low-fat dairy products and pulse foods such as beans and lentils and less high glycemic index (GI) foods such as carbohydrate from white bread, white rice and other refined starchy foods, said researchers conducting the world's largest dieting study; they also said with this regime you can also eat until you are full without having to watch the calories and without putting weight on.

The researchers found that among adults who lost at least eight per cent of their body weight following a calorie-restricted diet, the ones who were most successful at keeping the weight off and least likely to drop out during the six months of follow up, were those who maintained a diet high in protein and low in refined carbohydrate (foods with a high glycemic index or GI).

Foods with a high glycemic index (GI) are those whose carbohydrate content is digested more quickly and therefore their end-product, glucose, enters the bloodstream more quickly. Foods with a low GI have carbohydrates that break down more slowly during digestion, so the glucose enters the bloodstream over a longer period of time.
