Are you going to start a low calorie diet to help you lose weight? Before you do, please read this article, it will show you why low calorie diet plans don’t work.I receive emails daily on a regular basis from my people saying that they tried a very popular low calorie diet plan, only to be disappointed after a couple of weeks, and to see that they didn’t lose any weight at all. It is a sad fact, that no one talks about this publicly, because they feel ashamed and embarrassed. After being conned by so many, trying so many weight loss programs, who can you really trust.Don’t give up all hopes just yet, I am merely trying to show you why those low calorie diet plans didn’t work, and why you should not blame yourself. these are just facts that you don’t know. When using a low calorie diet, your body is put in starvation mode, your sick most of the time because of malnutrition, you have no energy, much less to complete any type of activities, which leads to a low metabolic rate.To lose weight successfully, and to keep it off, your mindset should be on these two things:1. Calories are your best friends, not your enemy: Don’t avoid calories, your body needs the necessary nutrition and energy, and the get that from the calories. Food intake increases your metabolic rate, the right food and quantity of food means more calories for your body, more energy. Just eating right will help you lose weight.However, there are bad calories, the kind we find in junk foods. You can eat as much nutritional food as you wish, and you won’t gain weight, but fatty foods, like eating burgers fried in fat or oil will accumulate fat.So it all boils down to what you eat, avoiding junk food (empty calories food) and eat more of the negative calorie foods, like fruits and vegetables. Negative calorie foods, do contain calories, but to digest these foods, your body is forced to burn more calories than what they provide, which in turn will help you lose even more weight. Based on the lack of calories, your body is forced to increase your metabolism.2. Don’t confuse muscle building with bodybuilding: You must do some type of muscle building exercise. To maintain your muscles, and to burn fat, your body needs to be stimulated, either by walking, jogging, yoga or any other type of physical exercises. On the other hand, by eating protein-rich foods, and exercising, you will create lean muscles. The biggest benefit of protein rich foods, is that it quenches the hunger, you have the urge to over eat, because you won’t feel hungry that often.Eating low calorie foods, won’t enable you to build any type of muscle tissue. You will start to lose muscle tone, which results in not enough lean muscle. Your body won’t be able to burn fat, because of the low metabolic rate, resulting in weight gain. The biggest reason why low calorie diets don’t work.Most of these low calorie diets will only help you lose water and muscles; while you maybe misled into believing that you have actually lost several dozens of pounds, you have not lost the single most important thing that is keeping you from becoming slim: and that is FAT! Unless you lose fat, there is no way you can become fit!Most of the low calorie diets, makes you believe your losing weight, but all it does is help you lose lean muscle tissue and water. You will think that you lost weight, but your body fat percentage remains the same, and in a couple months you will regain, if not increase all the wight you lost. You have to get rid of the fat.
