Researchers may have found the answer to why your hormones are having a hard time adjusting to your weight loss.

A study in the New England Journal of Medicine found a full year after a dieter shed unwanted pounds, their hormones were insisting they eat as if they were still at their former weight.

Researchers say the hormonal lag may explain why some dieters end up putting weight back on.
