Losing Weight

Not Losing Weight?

 

Don’t worry about how much weight you are losing, the important question is how much fat are you losing.  You can only lose about 3 pounds of fat a week and if you lose more you are instead losing valuable muscle.  Lots of us think that by not eating, we’ll lose weight-not so…by not eating we are telling our body to hit starvation mode and it will hold on to fat.  A rule of thumb for calorie intake is add a 0 to your ideal weight.  By eating every 3 hours your body relaxes and gets your metabolism working to give you the perfect body.  Just 30 minutes a day of strenuous exercise will convince your body to begin the work of losing fat.
