Do you want to know the best way to NOT lose weight? (Especially if you don't have a ton of weight to lose... you know, like those last 5-15lbs??)
Yup, it's a wonderful way to NOT lose weight, and to be HANGRY all day, every day.
Your body is very efficient. If you cut your calories drastically, after a period of time, your metabolism will adapt and learn how to function on only what you feed it. It's called starvation mode. Your body will also cling to your fat because from your body's point of view, it needs that fat! It doesn't know when it will be properly fueled again. Instead of losing that last little bit of fat, you'll lose water weight, your muscles will start to break down... it's just a mess!
This is important for everyone, but it's ESPECIALLY important if you workout. Don't go into a workout starving, and don't let yourself starve after an exercise session. I know it's easy to have the mindset, "Well, I just burned all those calories, I can't eat now!" (BELIEVE ME, I'VE BEEN THERE, DONE THAT!!!). But it's not true! Immediately following a workout is the BEST time to eat to ensure your body uses the food for energy and recovery and doesn't store it as fat.
Be nice to yourself. Weight/fat loss is a very personal process and different things work for different people. Pick a plan you can stick with. But no one can starve themselves for the rest of their lives.
Have you ever starved yourself to lose weight?
