7 LIES About Quick Weight Loss

Going on "quick weight loss only" diets won't work to transform your body long-term. You end up gaining more weight than you previously lost. Take a look a this quick video:





If you've never tried a quick weight loss or starvation diet, don't! There's a better way to build your lean and healthy body. Besides, who wants to be hungry and miserable. Wouldn't you rather eat adequately while building muscle, burning fat and losing weight? Healthy eating habits can be maintained long-term while quick weight loss eating tactics can not.

Starvation slows the fat-burning process. Your body relies on the nutrients in whole, natural foods for fuel. When you starve yourself for as little as 7 days, your body senses the downward shift in your caloric intake and kicks into starvation mode. When this happens, your metabolism will slow down and your body will hold on to stored fat in order to conserve energy.  For example, only eating 500 calories a day would be starving yourself.

Muscle mass needs more energy to function than fat. Basically, the more muscle mass you have, the more calories you’ll burn. If you continue to starve yourself, your body will feed on your muscle tissue and make it even harder for you to lose weight.
