Losing weight is difficult for so many people because they don't understand how their body works, and what it takes to make your body start feeding off of the fat you are trying so hard to lose.
The absolute last thing that you want to do if you are trying to lose weight is starve yourself.
And most people think that is exactly what they should be doing. Starving themselves. And that is so wrong. It does not work, and we were made to like food, so starving yourself is not any fun. No wonder it doesn't work that well.
The real fact though is that in order to start burning those extra calories you are storing (fat) you have to start feeding your body in a way that will make it believe you are not starving it.
To start off, skipping breakfast in the morning is a big no-no.
If you skip your breakfasts, you will never lose weight. Why? Because you are starving your body and your body will eat all of the muscle first before it ever starts to eat away your fat....if it believes it is starving.
This is a hard concept for a lot of people to grasp, but it's true.
By being consistant in your eating habits, and eating the right food, over the period of 30 days or so you can condition your body to start burning away all that fat.
But don't think you can burn all those extra pounds away without exercise.
You are going to have to combine exercise, diet, sleep and discipline in order to reach your weight loss goals.
So get the help you need from an experienced trainer who will set you up in a program designed just for you.
