Eat "more" and "lose" weight!
When we're in "diet mode" . . . it's scary to think about "eating more" isn't it???
And that's because we've been trained by the "dieting industry" . . . that to lose weight . . . we need to eat "less" . . . not "more". This kind of thinking about eating "more" . . . goes against everything we've been taught about dieting.
BUT . . . eating "more" healthy food actually "increases" the body's "metabolism" and with this . . . the body will end up losing more "fat", while retaining its muscle . . .
You see . . . when we do diets that restrict "too many" calories . . . the body actually burns "muscle mass" . . . NOT . . . "fat mass". So you do lose weight . . . just not the right kind of weight.
And what most dieters don't realize . . . is that cutting "too many" calories can actually "stall" the weight loss process of losing "fat mass".
You see . . . the body actually needs "calories" to "burn" calories. And the normal function of fat loss is this . . . when we eat enough . . . the body first uses food for fuel . . . but then . . . the body turns to its stored "fat" that its been holding onto for a rainy day. This rainy day fat is our stored, extra fat and now . . . gets used for fuel and burnt up.
But . . . when restricting calories "too severely" . . . as in most diets . . . the body goes into "starvation mode" and starts to break down "lean muscle tissue" to reserve its energy "fat" storage and save our stored "rainy day fat". This in turn . . . can "slow" the body's "metabolism" making it tougher to lose weight,
This is the body's defense mechanism so we don't "starve" to death.
We need to EAT people . . .
So the next question we need to ask ourselves is this . . .
