So, you want a lot of weight loss ormond beach? You want weight loss in the blink of an eye. I sure as heck don’t want the “secret” of losing weight slowly. Do you? That’s no secret at all. Well, I’ve got some good news – and bad. The good news is – you can lose weight rapidly. The bad news is – you must do it the right way… or else! One of the most important “rules” of weight loss that actually works is…You Can Not Lose Weight TOO Fast!
Why? Because when most people want to lose weight rapidly, they stop eating. If you don’t eat, you will lose weight. Makes sense – right? And, you will lose weight in the beginning. As a matter of fact, you will lose it FAST. Problem is – in order to survive, you have been given innate or inborn abilities to adapt to your surroundings. For example, take dark skinned versus light skin. Why are the dark skinned dark? Simply because they live in a place where they are exposed to a lot of sun. They have adapted to dark skin to protect them from the constant and powerful rays of the sun.
The light skinned, however, have adapted in the opposite direction. Since they live in an area that does not get as much direct sunlight, they have lighter, more sun-sensitive skin. Since the sun is one of our most important sources of vitamin D, if they did not have such light skin, they would become sick.
What does all this have to do with weight loss? Good question.
When you stop eating… or… drastically cut down what you eat – your body adapts. It goes into starvation mode and…
SLOWS YOUR METABOLISM DOWN TO A SNAILS PACE!
The end result is: you lose a bunch of weight quickly and then it stops. And here’s the worst part — as soon as you start eating again (and at some point you have to) you gain it all back and then some.
Most of the time you end up fatter then you were before you starved yourself. So you starve yourself again and end up fatter and fatter and fatter! What’s the solution? The first thing you have to understand is there is no one answer for everyone. You cannot fit everyone into one “program.”
Everyone has slightly different body types. Some do well with low carbs – others higher levels of “good” carbs.
Whatever you do, you want to change the way you eat and exercise for the rest of your life. The harsh reality is: there are no “diets” you can do for 6-8 weeks, lose a bunch of weight… and then go back to sitting on the couch and eating all the bad foods again. That being said, here are 5 rules of weight loss:
#1 Don’t try to lose weight fast without checking with your doctor. If you have any question, feel free to schedule a weight loss consultation with our office. Call Eileen at 386-672-3305 and she’ll let you know how it works.
#2 Don’t have unrealistic weight loss goals. The speed at which you can lose weight (without regaining it) depends on various factors including: (1) your present weight, (2) your general lifestyle, (3) how active (or inactive) you are, (4) the amount of stress in your life, and (5) your family history.
#3 Make sure you follow a sensible eating and lifestyle plan… NOT A FAD DIET! Fad “quick fixes” at the very best make you fatter. At the worst, they can ruin your metabolism and health that can take you years to recover from.
#4 Never go hungry! Like I said before, when we stop eating, our metabolism slows down. Conversely, when we eat many small meals spaced out throughout the day (as long as it is good food!) our metabolism speeds up. You will actually lose more weight when you eat more of the right food in 5 small meals a day then if you ate half as much in one or two meals.
#5 Stop eating out! And I’m not just talking about fast food. Most restaurants take good food and add all kinds of junk to make it taste better and get you fat! Eating at home will save you money and help you shed countless pounds.
