Why a very low calorie diet can make you fat?

Very Low Calorie Diets can make you fat!

There is a better way to achieve permanent fat loss than low calorie dieting.

You will lose weight (and sometimes fast), on a very low calorie diet. The trouble is, you will only lose in the beginning. In the long term, you set yourself up hormonally and metabolically to:

  • Slow down your metabolism (so fat loss is even more difficult the next time)
  • Hit a fat loss plateau
  • Regain all the weight
  • Damage your health due to nutritional deficiency
  • Cannibalizes your own muscle tissue

At the end, for all your trouble, this often leaves you a SKINNY FAT PERSON.

  • Low body weight
  • Low level of lean body mass
  • High body fat percentage

Here’s how this all works:

To get rid of body fat, you have to consume fewer calories than you burn. However, the fatal flaw in most popular diet programs is that the calorie deficit is too aggressive or too extreme and the low calorie diet is not accompanied by the right type of weight lifting.

Have you ever been told by personal trainers, doctors or nutritionists, that to get a lean body you have to eat 1200 calories?

While some extreme diets can help you lose weight quickly, they are not long-term plans. Extreme dieting is effective for quick weight loss Not fat loss) and it is not a healthy life plan. Restrictive diets are not long term solutions. Avoid extreme diets and concentrate on healthy living with a balanced diet to lose weight and maintain the weight loss.

The Strange (And Dangerous) Low Calorie Diet Paradox

When you go on a very low calorie diet, eventually your body adapts.

You fire a low calorie diet at your body and it zaps off some weight in the begining. But then your body figures out what’s going on. Your body doesn’t care that you want to look good in a swimsuit; your body thinks you’re under attack! Your body thinks you’re about to starve to death!

When you  hardly eat, your metabolic rate slows down in order to protect you. This defense mechanism is often called, the starvation mode.

Disastrous Effects Of The Starvation Mode

When you go into starvation mode, your fat burning hormones crash, your fat cells release less leptin, your body releases fewer fat-releasing and fat-burning enzymes such as hormone sensitive lipase and lipoprotein lipase, you lose lean body mass, your hypothalamus in your brain turns up the appetite switch and your body fiercely defends for survival by holding on to the last 10 pounds or so of fat with all its might!

An extremely low calorie diet may work in the short term, but it never lasts very long.

In the long run, very low calorie diets can actually make you fatter. Eventually, they lead to binge eating and weight re-gain and you end up with less muscle and a slower metabolism than when you started.

Does any of this sound familiar? If so, aren’t you finally ready for something else?

The TRUTH About Permanent Fat Loss

You do not have to starve yourself on very low calorie diets to get a lean body. You can eat more and burn more fat. In fact, That is the secret. Eat more, burn more. Starvation is the worst way to lose body fat!

  • My nutrition plan feed the muscle
  • My weightlifting training build the muscle
  • My cardio training burn the fat

And it is the only way to lose body fat and keep it off. Period.

Nutrition + Cardio + Weight training. NOT one or the other.

It’s the synergy from the combination that works the fat-burning magic. This secret has been known by fitness models and bodybuilders for decades. Using these techniques and methods, bodybuilders have learned how to bypass the starvation mode.

Make sure that your personal trainer/ nutrition consultant do not put you in a starvation mode.
