NO MORE DIETS!
According to research by the National Weight Control Registry, 95% of the people who lose weight on conventional diet programs will eventually regain it all and often even more. Second, much of the weight you lose from very low calorie dieting is lean body mass, not fat. This leaves the person looking unhealthy and unattractive from lose of lean muscle. Maintaining muscle is key to keeping metabolism and fat burning at optimal levels.
Consequences of very low calorie diets include:
- Increase appetite
- Decrease metabolism
- Loss of lean tissue
- Reduced thyroid function
- Increased chances of weight regain
- Decreased energy and work capacity
- Increased cortisol levels
- Lower testosterone levels
- Lower levels of the fat burning hormone Leptin
