Why Low Calorie Diets Don’t Work

Low calorie diets don’t work.  You may lose weight at first but you will gain it back over time.  This is all too common: you lose weight at the beginning and then gain it back and possibly more.

When you decide you’ll only eat 1200 or even 900 calories a day, your body slows its metabolism way down.  It does this because it reacts to what it sees as starvation.  

The result is that your body stops burning fat which will have the exact opposite effect that you want.  Instead of losing fat you’ll be reducing muscle and your metabolism will slow down to stop what the body perceives as starvation.

The result of low calorie diets is that you won’t look better even if you temporarily lose some weight.  This is all about looking good, being and feeling healthy and keeping weight off long term.

Your diet needs to consist of healthy foods that are known to burn fat.  You can eat as much or more than you do now.  It just has to be the right foods that will fill you up and put your metabolism in turbo drive.

You don’t need to be a bodybuilder to know that eating the right foods combined with exercise is the key to finally having the lean, healthy body that you dream about.  This isn’t about a “diet”.  This is about a lifestyle change that becomes part of you!

Most of us don’t really want to put out the effort to become a bodybuilder.  It isn’t necessary.  But we can eat 5 or 6 times a day like they do.  You can exercise so that you burn fat and at the same time speed up your metabolism so that you’re burning fat even while we sleep.
