Eat more food = Better results?
That can’t be true!
How could it be?
I’ve always heard you need to eat less and move more.
Let me explain.
In order to lose weight, you need to be in a calorie deficit.
A calorie deficit doesn’t mean 0 calories…
A calorie deficit means that you need to burn more calories than you consume.
Here’s where most people get it wrong though.
Your body needs a MINIMUM number of calories to function properly.
Your heart beats. Your lungs breathe. Your organs function. Your brain thinks.
This all requires fuel (aka calories).
If you eat too FEW calories, your body will regulate in order to protect itself (survive).
Your metabolism will slow down, you will burn muscle for energy, and your body will want to store more fat. Fat is the longest, slowest burning energy source that we have.
Will you lose weight this way? Absolutely.
But the goal isn’t to weigh 0 lbs…
The goal is to be strong, lean, and toned. FOR LIFE!
So eat the amount your body needs and get better results! Win/Win.
