Reasons to Speak with a Weight Loss Specialist
It may come as a surprise, but most people gain an average of 11 pounds for every diet they go on. How is this possible? It's true though, even if you do lose some weight, the loss is temporary, and you'll often end up gaining a few pounds. Why does this happen?
How Bad Diets Sabotage Weight Loss
Most diets are based on deprivation, and people are often under the mistaken impression that the less they eat, the more weight they will lose. Sometimes, that does happen. If you restrict calories you may indeed lose weight. And, you'll lose muscle, too. At this point, you are also depriving your body of necessary nutrients, and you may be feeling sluggish, weak and irritable.
What happens next? Well, you may feel frustrated when you don't get the results you are looking for. So you stop your diet and resume your normal eating routine. Since you've been depriving yourself, you may even choose to indulge a bit more. Or, perhaps you feel bad about not losing weight, which will often lead to overeating. Or, maybe you'll lose weight, hit your goal and stop dieting. Unfortunately, you've lost muscle, as well. Muscle plays a big role in metabolism and helps you burn calories even when you aren't working out. Muscle loss means that you are going to gain more fat when you stop dieting.
Diets fail when they require you to starve your body. They also tend to fail when you aren't prepared to change your eating habits for the long term, and also when you don't have the support, education and positive reinforcement you get when you have a weight loss specialist on your side.
If you have struggled with weight loss, it's time to speak to a weight loss specialist. He or she can help create a customized weight loss plan that will work without sacrificing your health. You will have tons of support, and you will lose weight and learn how to keep it off.
