Nutrition and Diet:
Tired of starving yourself to lose weight? This
is the number one problem I see with new clients.
You don’t have to starve yourself to lose weight. By
not eating enough calories your body will go into
what’s called “survival mode”, where it will begin
to lose muscle during a deprivation or starvation
period. So while you do lose some weight, the
majority of it is muscle and water weight.
By losing muscle during this process you are simply
slowing down your metabolism. Why does this happen?
The reason why yo-yo diets cause people to
eventually gain weight is simply that…
1. In the beginning on a super low calorie
diet a person will lose muscle, water, and a little
bit of fat.
2. After a period of 2 to 6 weeks they begin
to feel deprived on their super low calorie diet.
3. After that time they begin eating again
thereby gaining the weight back.
4. To their surprise they gained the weight
back and a bit more.
5. They get frustrated and start the yo-yo
diet process again…
Most importantly the reason why a person will gain
back weight after the dieting period is that they
have slowed down their own metabolism by losing
muscle during the dieting period. Their body used
their own muscle as a source of energy thereby
slowing down their metabolism. Remember the more
muscle you have the faster your metabolism, the less
muscle you have the slower your metabolism.
