The one thing that I have to constantly remind myself of is that I have to eat to lose weight. The second I try to drop my calorie intake way down, my body goes into starvation mode and begins to protect all that precious body fat that I carry around. I have learned this lesson over and over again. But every time I want to speed up my progress, there I go again cutting calories even further. Dumb, dumb dumb.
So blog, here I am once again reminding myself to; Eat you idiot! Ok, where was I. Oh yea; eating. The reason you need to eat is your body will protect it’s fat stores if it thinks you are about to settle in for a long winter deprivation period. As long as you take in 1500 to 2000 calories per day, you will win. If you want to speed up the process, it is better to walk off 400-500 calories along with eating 1500 than it is to try to cut down to 1000.
So, if you want to lose weight permanently, be sure to eat!
Losing my big butt, one day at a time!
