Stop Thinking You Have To Be Hungry To Lose Weight

Stop Thinking You Have To Be Hungry To Lose Weight

You might be surprised, but skipping meals and pushing yourself through 800-calorie days will not make you lose weight faster. ⁠

On the contrary, it can totally mess up your system and even make you gain weight. Yes, you read that right.⁠

Here are four possible consequences of undereating:⁠

⁠1 – Destroys your metabolism⁠

⁠By not consuming enough calories, your metabolism can slow down. And as it slows down anyway as you age, living on just salads and coffee accelerate this process.⁠

2 – Cognitive difficulties⁠

⁠Depriving your body of nutrients compromises your ability to think clearly and remain focused. So next time you blame menopause for your brain fog, think about what you’ve eaten that day.⁠

3 – Hormonal changes⁠

⁠Starving yourself for extended periods can put you under a lot of stress, dramatically shift your hormone levels and put them out of balance. This can cause everything from PMS, acne, and migraines to hot flashes, depression and weight gain.⁠

4 – No energy

⁠Denying your body the fuel it needs to function can turn you into a lethargic Zombie, unable to accomplish even simple tasks due to a complete lack of energy.⁠

Stop patting yourself on the shoulder whenever you survive another day of eating like a bird, and let me show you how to fire up your metabolism so that you can eat AND lose weight!
