Answer

According to a study by Blüher et al, patients regaining weight after initial weight loss on long-term dietary intervention nevertheless continued to show long-lasting improvements in high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, adiponectin, fetuin, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, progranulin, and vaspin. This finding may indicate that there are delayed effects following initial weight loss and/or continuous beneficial effects from switching to a healthier diet. [120]
