According to Shaklee . . . with fad diets we lose some weight, gain it back, and find ourselves heavier than before (i.e. yo-yo dieting). In the short term we can lose the weight, but we may be doing more damage than good because our body thinks it is experiencing a “famine.” In response, our body goes into survival and conserves energy by slowing our metabolism. Our body does its best to hold the fat we have as long as it can. So, with many diets, the weight we initially lose is not from just fat, but muscle, too. That loss of muscle slows our metabolism even further because muscle burns calories. Many diets are too restrictive or monotonous, or leave us feeling deprived and do not teach us how to permanently change our eating and exercise habits. They leave us feeling hungry, tired, and craving the foods we miss most, so we return to our old eating habits and gain the weight back. And the sad part is, the weight we put back on is fat weight.
Last week I pledged with 6,000 other people to lose over 72,000lbs in the next 90 days, and I know I have a better chance of success with the buddy system. Any takers :)? I plan to use a program powered by Leucine to help preserve muscle (and metabolism) while I lose weight from fat, as well as inches. I like the idea of controlling my hunger, boosting my energy, and feeling satisfied. Clinically tested, money-back guarantee, and SIMPLE – 90 days to learn how to make one yummy, healthy meal each day! Plus, I know that my waist measurement correlates to my risk for heart disease, and I will feel better creating a healthier lifestyle, especially in preparation for children someday. I do not want to buy new pants/shorts, and I would like to wear something without elastic :).
