Many people find losing weight hard because their body doesn’t want them to lose the weight. Your body sees dieting as a loss of vital nutrients and energy. It sees it as a threat to it’s survival. The only way it knows to protect itself is by making it extremely hard for you to be successful. There are a few methods that you can implement to make your body want to lose weight.
Firstly, you must tell your body that you have plenty of food and won’t be starving any time in the near future. The purpose of fat is that it can be used as energy when there is know food to be eaten. However, this is a mechanism that has come from thousands of years ago when humans had to hunt for food and could go days without any proper food. Nowadays we can get food whenever we want, therefore the use of fat is longer needed.
To tell your body that you don’t need the extra fat you will need to do 2 things. Firstly, you must give your body all the nutrients and energy it needs. This means you must eat food that contains high nutritional value and will give your body the nutrients it needs to perform processes within you body. You must eat enough food to satisfy your bodies energy needs. Your body will tell you if it needs food by making you hungry. Eat food until the hunger is gone, this usually means eat what you usually eat in a normal day. To lose weight you must only decrease your calories by a maximum of 500 a day.
Secondly, you must eat every 3 hours. It takes about 3 hours to digest a meal, after this your body will think that you don’t have enough food and will store fat as a precaution. Eat 6 small meals a day. The meals must contain protein, protein can only be used by your body for about 3 hours after this it must use muscle tissue instead. Muscle is metabolically active tissue and is hard to maintain. Muscle burns a lot of calories throughout the day, the more you have the higher your metabolism. Eating protein every 3 hours is the only way you can prevent the breakdown of muscle.
Use the two methods above to tell your body that you have enough food and aren’t starving. Your body will easily lose weight when it knows it is safe to do so. Your body bases everything around it’s survival and so has many mechanisms to help protect it. By doing things in a certain way that suits your body you can make it change to be how you want it. Losing weight when your body wants to is much easier than when it doesn’t. It is healthier and more effective.
