Of course, eating too much causes your body to store more fat. But so does eating too little!
Does this scenario sound familiar? You decide you need to lose a few pounds, so you go on a “diet,” restricting your calories drastically so you can get the results you want. This is sometimes combined with starting a vigorous exercise routine as well. You feel hungry all the time, you are grumpy and tired, and you crave fatty, sweet foods.
Can you relate? Here’s an idea of what’s actually happening in your body when this is done. Your body is starved of the fuels it needs to function efficiently and it has to make up for this lack of fuel somehow. Will it tap into its fat stores and start to use up this reserve of fuel? NO! Fearing starvation, your body will do just the opposite. It will store every bit of fat it can to build a stockpile of fuel against this threat of famine. At the same time, it will break down your lean muscle mass and convert it to fuel, slowing your metabolic rate so you will not need as many calories! Sure, you lose some weight, but it is mostly lean muscle weight, not fat weight. You hardly lose any inches, and you are less healthy than you were before you started. Vigorous exercise only means your body will require even more fuel, compounding the problem even further. This is why “eating less and exercising more” just does not work.
Eventually one of two things happens. Either you give in to the cravings and give up on the “diet”, or you lose the “weight” you want and go back to your old eating habits. In either case, your body now requires fewer calories than it did before because it has broken down some lean muscle mass which is what burns the majority of calories you consume. Soon you gain all of the weight back, plus usually a bit more. Now you are heavier than you were to start with, you have more body fat and less lean muscle mass, and you have put your body (specifically your kidneys and liver) under tremendous stress. All this in the name of health, yet you are less healthy!
Again, the secret to losing fat is not to starve your body, but to prove to it that there is fuel available and therefore it does not need to stockpile fat. Do this and you will be amazed at how your body will want to shed that extra fat. It really works! On top of losing the fat and inches, you will be healthier, have higher energy levels, cope with stress better, and never have to worry about gaining the fat back!
Of course, eating too much causes your body to store more fat. But so does eating too little! That’s why we have carefully composed our meals to ensure proper amount of calories and nutrient for maximizing fat loss. Check out or menu and start our fat loss meal programs today!
There have been studies conducted on the health benefits of weight loss for the long term through calorie restriction, but not many studies have looked at the stress levels and how this calorie restrictive weight loss affects hormones.
Studies examined hormone changes and behaviors those on calorie restricted diets, which produced significant weight loss over three weeks. Previous studies have shown that withdrawal from a high fat diet has been shown to increase stress levels. This study showed that those that were dieting had higher levels of the stress hormone corticosterone. They also showed symptoms of depression when in stressful situations. What is even more significant is that this group had altered DNA after they were done dieting that showed changes in the genes that control appetite and stress. These changes even remained after they returned to regular eating habits and reached their pre-diet weights.
What this research shows is that repeated crash dieting may not only increase stress levels, but also make successful weight loss more difficult. It may make the brain more susceptible to increase future binge eating of high fat foods. It may actually reprogram how the brain responds to these situations.
Now that they have seen the results of crash dieting are detrimental to your fat loss success, you must learn how to control appetite and stress. Eating clean consistent meals throughout the day of nutrient rich foods is your best attack on fat loss, binge eating, and stress and mood management!
