Yvette Help I am not losing weight.. and I am only eating 700 calories…OK so the answer is….. I need you to eat more!!! This is an email I got so I figured I would address it. Its so hard to lose weight when you are doing everything possible and the scale is not budging. Not eating enough can cause you to gain weight, not lose weight! If you want to lose weight, then this can come as quite a surprise.
Why is this so?It has everything to do with your metabolism. The higher your metabolism, the more fat your body burns. If you have a low metabolism, then of course the amount of fat your body burns is reduced.Skipping meals or not eating enough actually helps your body to become really good at storing fat. Why? Because it needs to, in case it is starved again in future! Your body needs fuel to work properly, so if you don’t provide it with enough, it will take as much as it can the next time you feed it and store it as fat so it will have fuel the next time it is starved of food.
Sounds logical, doesn’t it? So how do we effectively lose weight?First you need to calculate your Basal Metabolic Rate (or BMR). You can go on any number of sites and punch in your numbers and get it directly off the internet. I like to use this one http://www.bmi-calculator.net/
