It’s that time of year again, New Year New You! Many people all over the world will be trying to lose weight at this time of year, if you are one of these please remember these important facts when doing so.
1, FACT- A lot of Fad diets focus on 3 meals per day, by doing this it leaves long intervals with no food, leaving you feeling hungry in between meals and you will end up picking and craving sugary foods. By eating smaller healthy meals more frequently balances energy levels and will help you lose and maintain your weight more effectively.
2, FACT- Faddy Diets can interfere with your metabolism (the rate you burn calories). Your age or activity levels can influence how fast or slow your metabolism works. The body in its normal state, called homeostasis learns to maintain the weight you normally carry. Once you lower your calorie intake dramatically, after time, your body will create a new homeostasis based on the new lower calorie count. This means when you start eating regular food again you will gain back the weight and more because your body is used to surviving on fewer calories. Losing weight slowly, following a sensible diet will help keep your metabolism working properly.
3, FACT- Faddy diets can lose weight quickly but the initial weight is water weight! NOT FAT! When you start eating regular food, the water weight comes back on. Weight loss is a gradual process!
4, FACT- Faddy diets are unhealthy, by removing food groups can deprive your body of essential nutrients. This done over a period of time can damage bones, vital organs and even brain tissue. Also by constantly following yo yo diets and lose and gain weight regularly can put stress on the immune system which gives your body less chance of fighting off cold/flu and infections.
