How to lose weight and keep it off forever.
We all have a famine response and according to Wikipedia it is:
The body responds to reduced energy intake by burning fat reserves first
and only consumes muscle and other tissues when those reserves are exhausted.
Specifically, the body burns fat after first exhausting the contents of the digestive tract along with glycogen reserves stored in muscle and liver cells.
After prolonged periods of calorie reduction, the body will utilize the proteins within muscle tissue as a fuel source.
You lose muscle and fat
What happens when you first go on a calorie reducing diet is your body first uses up fat but soon after it starts using up muscle tissue.
When that happens your body’s metabolism slows down called the famine response so to lose more weight you have to cut more calories which is almost impossible.
This Is Called The YO-YO Diet
People who go on diets lose weight but then they gain it back and their fat ratio increases, and there metabolism slows down.
How to lose weight on the Shaklee 180 Diet Plan
Our Shaklee 180 program is based on interesting scientific insight behind why most diets fail—and that is the feast & famine response.
We are, as humans, programmed to hold onto our body fat in times of “famine” as well as selectively store fat in response to “feast” scenarios.
Well, this was protective and associated with survival when there truly were feast and famine scenarios.
But, in today’s world in the US, we have plenty of food.
How To Lose Weight Reduce Calories
But the body senses “famine” and turns on mechanisms to protect fat and sacrifice lean muscle mass.
Since muscle mass determines our metabolism, loss of muscle mass means you burn less calories per day, so you will lose weight, but at the expense of muscle.
On The Average Diet You Lose Muscle And Fat
You will lose about 50% fat and 50% muscle.
Eventually, your weight loss slows down, you get frustrated and fall back to your old habits and pack those lost pounds back on—but you don’t regain it as muscle but rather ALL as fat!
