Don’t Eat to Cut Calories

The biggest mistake people make which make me real sad is reducing calories as low as possible and eating a few salads during the day. After two days of this insane approach, they’re back to eating more junk then ever because the approach is not realistic. The key is to reduce calories enough to lose fat, but still keep calories high enough to sustain your energy. Food, when used properly, can actually stimulate the metabolism to lose body fat.

Controlling blood sugar levels in order to lose body fat. This is best accomplished by consuming four to six meals per day. Don’t mistake the definition of a meal for a six-course extravaganza. A meal might be an egg-white omelet with low-fat cheese and oatmeal with some blueberries in it; a strawberry protein shake with peanut butter; cottage cheese with fruit and some almonds or maybe a vegetarian burger and spinach salad with oil and vinegar.

They’re actually feedings. Each of the meals is comprised of protein, some fibrous and nonfibrous carbohydrate (depending on the meal) and a little bit of fat. In some cases, the fat is built into the protein. In other cases, it’s added to the meal. Do not skip your meals and have 1 or 2 huge gigantic meals at the end of the day. If you practice that, the effort to loose fat will be defeated and countered by your body reacting to the starvation mode by dropping metabolism and hoarding calories.
