Starving yourself in the hopes of budging the scale and shifting a few pounds might seem like a good idea, but there’s a catch. The more you starve yourself, the more stubborn your fat stores actually become!
The reason for this can be traced back to our ancient ancestors, who, living without the convenience of drive-thru’s, often didn’t know when they would eat again. As a result, the human body evolved to hang on to fat reserves to prevent our energy stores running too low and boost survival. It’s all self-preservation, really.
The bad news is this evolutionary safety-switch is still in effect, which means a different approach for effective weight loss is in order. The main problem with starving yourself is not that you won’t lose weight, you will, it’s the fact it’s not sustainable (or healthy).
The good news is that the answer to this weight loss conundrum is simple – eating foods and following strategies that ignite your metabolism and leave you feeling full and satisfied. You CAN lose weight safely, and effectively without staging a standoff on calories or eating a single rice cake, just follow this simple advice.
