There is a good chance that you make one or further of the following weight-loss miscalculations if you feel wedged in a pattern or dissatisfied with your results.
Mistake #1 – Not being in a calorie deficiency
No matter how “clean” you eat and how important you exercise, you’ll not lose weight if you’re not in a calorie deficit.
You’ll gain weight if you consume smaller calories than you burn. You’ll lose weight if you consume further calories than what is burned. That’s a scientific fact!
Case in point Mark Haub, professor of mortal nutrition at Kansas State University, ate Twinkies, Oreos, Doritos, and protein shakes for two months while maintaining a moderate diurnal calorie deficiency.
He has lost 27 pounds in two months by eating all the junk food because he was in a calorie deficit. Now, we don’t advise you to follow this diet because that’s terrible for your health, but it proves my point.
Mistake #2 – Confirming a too severe calorie deficiency
A 900 calorie deficiency should slim you down three times as presto, right?
If an energy deficiency of 300 calories a day will get you spare, it is Wrong!
A severe calorie deficiency won’t lead to superior fat loss but hurts your progress for four reasons. It slows down your metabolism, which means you will burn smaller calories per day.
This sets you up for recovering all the lost pounds, once you go off the diet. Severe overeating causes inordinate muscle loss, which hampers metabolism. Your cravings go haywire, which makes you more likely to cheat on your diet plan or indeed toss it out the window.
It wreaks annihilation on your hormonal health. For illustration, it harpoons the “stress hormone” cortisol, which stimulates muscle wasting and reduces fat burning.
Take protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamin, and fiber that your body can burn in a day, depending on the work you do. Do not go below or exceed this limit.
Eat well! Stay well!
