Diets are like shortcuts, so if you take them, well they end up being bad for you in the long run. Low calorie diets actually slow down your metabolism rate. Hence, when you stop dieting, the metabolism still remains slow and you gain weight back faster than before. Also, muscles burn more calories than fat, so you are actually reducing muscle tissue weight and not fat.
