An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

“Will I gain weight on a reverse diet?” This is such a common question that I receive from nutrition clients as well as prospective clients and followers on Instagram.

Before I give you a blanket answer, let me tell you this… reverse dieting has different effects for different people. ⁠It often depends on your specific goals, the rate of the reverse, your dieting history, current physical situation (like body weight, body fat, and other related stats), your mindset, and your patience. So, will you gain weight on a reverse diet? Different people’s bodies respond in different ways, but, in general, your body can respond one of three ways.



Hyper responders: You eat more food, cut back on training, body composition improves, energy increases… all of the good things happen! It sounds crazy, but it’s definitely possible!

Moderate responders: This is where most people end up, and it’s a good place to be. You’ll pretty much stay at your current body weight and likely notice better body composition. You might start out as a hyper responder and hit a point where you stop losing weight, but see it hold steady even with adding more food.

Slow responders: For some people their metabolism and hormones have slowed down so significantly that the increase in calories leads to weight gain. While this isn’t what you want to happen, it might be necessary to repair the damage and set you up for a successful fat loss phase in the future.

Will I gain weight on a reverse diet?

A reverse diet, like a weight loss diet, requires consistency and commitment. It’s not something to be done haphazardly (or quickly).⁠ If the macro and calorie counts are not followed, you may experience faster weight gain, a continued plateau, or a loss of muscle mass.⁠ Reverse dieting, when done properly and under the right conditions, can help you maintain and improve your results while giving your body the diet break it needs.⁠ I definitely believe reverse dieting can be beneficial for the right people when done the right way.⁠⠀
