In a previous post we talked about the importance of creating a caloric deficit if you want to lose weight.
The problem is, some people, especially women, take that advice to the extreme and start eating less than 1,000 calories a day.
They think the fewer calories they eat, the faster they will get results.
And while you will lose weight initially, after a few weeks the weight loss will stop and you will end up right where you started.
This is because severe calorie deficits screw up your metabolism.
What you have to understand is that your body is always working to keep you alive.
When you start eating so few calories, your body assumes you are in a famine and there is not enough food.
And in an effort to keep you alive, your body stores as much food as possible as fat.
This ultimately causes you to pack on the pounds instead of lose them.
Yes it’s important to create a caloric deficit, but not one so severe it has the opposite effect.
You should instead follow a custom meal plan that is tailored to YOUR body and YOUR goals.
Take this free quiz to find out how many calories you should be eating per day to lose weight.
And remember, you don’t have to give up your favorite foods or eat like a rabbit to lose weight.
You simply have to learn how to eat in a way that turns your body into a fat burning machine.
