    Losing weight will always require a calorie restriction but how much do we restrict calories in the diet?


    When trying to lose weight many dieters tend to restrict calorie consumption too much too soon, sometimes with a belief that a sudden calorie restriction will shock the body into burning fat quicker. The body does adapt to any calorie restriction quickly however, it does not force increased fat burning, greater fat burning is the result of higher fitness levels or an increased metabolism. Restricting calories too much will only result in a lowered metabolism as the body burns protein from lean muscle.

    When dieters restrict calories too much it also develops a stronger appetite. Many believe this is because they are eating less however, it may be caused by a slight deficiency in essential nutrients. The appetite may be driving the individual to seek more food in order to gain the required nutrition.

    With these possible factors in mind it is essential that calorie restriction is a gradual process developed over many months and not something done within a week or two. A true calorie restriction is also more effective when nutritionally dense foods are eaten in small, frequent meals. A diet void of nutrient dense foods may only cause further cravings and a greater appetite!

    Restricting calories by eating healthy, low energy meals regularly is the best way to lose weight permanently. Introducing healthier varieties into the diet gradually ensures lower calorie consumption with the benefit of providing the body with enough essential nutrition to maintain an effective fat-burning energy system.

    "If you work really hard to achieve your goals but don’t enjoy the journey, you’re delaying the essence of life. Committing to your goals doesn’t mean you slave away at work you dislike, celebrating only the destination. A real abiding commitment means that you love what you do each day. You are at least as passionate about the path as you are about the results. If you love the path you’re on, your passion motivates you to keep taking the next step." Steve Pavlina
