Why? Have you ever wondered how you ended up six pounds heavier after your diet stopped? Researchers at the Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland discovered reduced metabolic rates can be present for up to two months following the diet of the same length. Sevier crash diets also stimulate biomechanical changes in the body which results in increased fat storage. The protective body activity might save your life in a famine. In our country of abundant food, however, it will only pop the buttons on your britches! If you wish to be lean for a long time, take a long time to get lean. I suggest losing about one pound of fat a week.
Eat your meals at regular times. Don’t skip meals, at your next meal your production of insulin will increase dramatically. This will cause increased fat storage. High fiber foods help!
