Did You Pick The Right Weight Loss Plan For Your New Year’s Resolution?
Are you starting a new weight loss plan? When it comes to weight loss, you need to know the difference between weight loss vs. fat loss.
Many people want to lose as much weight as possible in the shortest amount of time on a fad diet. As their weight decreases, they assume that all or most of the weight being lost is body fat. Unfortunately, they couldn’t be more wrong and as much as 75% of the weight you lose may not be body fat at all.
The reality is that when you go on a very low calorie diet, you often end up losing more water and lean muscle mass than you do body fat. Very low calorie diets cause you to lose lean muscle mass because when you drastically reduce calories to starve away body fat, you also starve away lean muscle mass.
Excess body fat makes you look and feel bad, and increases your risk for health problems. The most effective way to lose body fat is to combine a fat loss nutrition plan with a fat loss exercise routine.
“A fat loss nutrition plan is based on cutting back on calories, not on drastically reducing them. It’s also based on eating certain healthy foods that are less likely to be converted to body fat. A fat loss nutrition plan is not a temporary way of eating like a diet is. It is a permanent way of eating that can be followed for a lifetime.”
