Holy Grail?

by Vidya Sury September 1, 2010 2 comments

Weight loss – the holy grail for many people – has to be worked right, apparently, to see results.

Eating less does not achieve weight loss – as per common belief.

If you go on a very low-energy diet a.k.a. “starvation diet”, it can actually hamper your weight loss, instead of hastening it. Our body is programmed to conserve its fat stores in times of famine and can experience your crash diet as threatening starvation, and go into self-preservation mode.

It is much easier to keep weight off if it has been lost slowly. This gives the body time to adapt. Otherwise if your weight-loss measures are too drastic, your body will interpret this as a sign to stop losing weight, as it doesn’t know where the next meal is coming from, or whether there will be one.

So – before following any kind of  “weight loss diet” consult someone who is qualified to advise you.

We Said Vidya!
The problem here is that we try to lose weight in few weeks but forget that we have gained that baggage over a period of months or even years. When you have been living it for months or years, let it be there for a couple of weeks more and lose weight in healthy manner. Excess of everything is bad and weight loss is no exception to this universal rule!

Keep up the good work!
