Holiday Weight Loss?

So, I know I posted someone else’s article on Wednesday, and now, today, I’m doing it again. I’m not getting lazy, honest, it’s just that I think these are really great articles.

We’re coming up to the big weight-gain months and then hitting the highest dieting month of the year in January. I hate to see people sabotaging their efforts by doing the wrong thing – I’ve been there. I know how frustrating it can be!

Today we’re looking at low calorie diets. Sounds good, but there’s trouble ahead. I’m bringing in Holly Rigsby to give you the scoop! Read on!

Eat less, weigh less, right?

Yes and no.
You love my answers, right?

When it comes to successful fat loss, a caloric deficit must be created ~ you want to be eating slightly less than what you burn through your metabolism, daily activity and workouts.

I am not one to focus on or preach numbers, but when you are just
beginning it is important to take an inventory of what is going into
your body.

This can be as simple as keeping a basic food log for 5 to 7 days.

Now, let’s get into what happens when you do NOT eat enough.

Ten Step Process of Following a Low Calorie “Diet”
The truth about what happens when you drop your calories too low.

  1. You decide you want to lose weight, so you lower your calories.
  2. Your body weight falls.
  3. Your body tries to regain the original weight by becoming VERY energy efficient as it begins to SLOW metabolic processes.
  4. Your body senses a loss of body weight and perceives the current low calorie diet as Starvation.
  5. Sensing Starvation from low calories, your body begins to ….
    ~ slow your metabolic rate…again
    ~ hold on to fat stores for survival
    ~ learn how to function on fewer calories
  6. Your Body now begins to look for alternative sources of fuel for energy
  7. Your body adapts to your energy needs by burning lean muscle for fuel….which in turn lowers your metabolism even more.
  8. You now become Tired, Lethargic, and find it extremely difficult to stay motivated.
  9. To make matters worse, you now begin to Crave foods high in sugar
    and fat – – – your body is tricking you into increasing your calorie
  10. Your body has learned to function on low calories and ANY increase in calories will be stored as fat.

Result => It is nearly impossible to keep this lifestyle up for a long period of time. Once you begin to increase your calories, you quickly regain what you have lost and are likely to gain an extra 5 to
10 lbs. on top of that.

Not exactly the results anyone would want.

Break the weight loss-weight gain cycle!
In order to achieve your fat loss goals, you must eat, you must eat often, and you must eat supportive foods.

Food is not your enemy.

Once you have the key eating strategies in place- food becomes your fat loss friend.

I have Holly’s program myself, and it’s great. Well balanced, good information based on science, and it works. It’s for those who need to make changes, and have the discipline and focus to move forward. I highly recommend it.

If you’re not very disciplined, start with the free PraiseWalker Primer, and move up from there (we’ll actually be incorporating Holly’s program into the PraiseWalker system at a later stage).

Well, thanks for joining me! I will write my own post for Monday!

Till then,

Happy Walking!
