Lose Weight or Fat? Part 3

Hi,

In the last 2 posts you saw how most people in order to lose weight will go on a diet and start some kind of aerobics program.

We went into detail on how both of those ways was good at helping you lose weight.  As long as you never stop. 

But, they aren’t so good at helping your burn body fat.  In reality, the only thing that will happen if you lose weight is that you will be a smaller size of your original body shape. 

So how do you fix this?

Well, one way is to change the macronutrients in your diet.  Those are the proteins, fats and carbs. 

Just eating less food, whether it is less protein, less carbs or less fat will help you lose weight. 

But, it will do nothing to help keep your metabolism up.  And as you saw in the previous posts, eating less lowers your metabolism. 

One of the worst mistakes one can make is to reduce their calories too much. 

When you do that the body notices right away.  It does not like drastic changes.  It likes homeostasis or the “same old, same old”. 

A drastic change, like a drop in calories, will cause your body to reduce its need for calories to the level you dropped the calories.

So if you were eating 3000 calories a day and reduced it to 2000 calories a day, your body will reduce your energy needs so that it only needs 2000 calories a day. 

Now it takes some time for this to happen.  It depends upon your age, sex, stress in your life and how many times you have been on the yo-yo diet. 

If you haven’t lost as much weight as you would like and reduce your calories even more to 1500 a day, then your body will again reduce your metabolism so it only needs 1500 calories a day. 

This can continue until you die.  But, most people stop before then:-).

So what do you do?  You reduce your calories gradually and manipulate the macronutrients. 

You do this by cutting say 200-300 calories a day to start.  And you make sure you are getting food your body can use. 

That is good protein, good carbs and good fats.   Yes, you need all three. 

I think you already know that eating hot dogs and potato chips would not be considered good even if you only ate 1500 calories a day of them. 

Your body will need energy for the next part of the equation and that is your exercise program. 

Wouldn’t you like to know how to exercise less, burn more calories and keep a raised metabolism?

We will address that in part four of the lose weight or fat series.  Just know that you have to feed your body enough food and good quality food.

Thanks
