And the way to start is by throwing out all your diet plans that requires you to stay away from food. You cannot lose weight simply by not eating - that will actually have the opposite effect!
Ever wonder why you almost always end up heavier than when you first started on a stay-away-from-food diet?
That's because the human evolution process is an extremely slow one.
Our DNA still contains data from our pre-historic ancestors. Back then, food was scarce. Our ancestors would sometimes go on for days without anything to eat - so when food does come, our body turns it into fat and stores them so what little food they had to eat could continue to sustain them.
When you attempt to lose weight by starvation, this old mechanism kicks in. This means that when your next meal comes around, what you eat will be turned into fat and stored in your body. The more you eat during this time, the more fat will be created.
So, how do you lose weight?
The answer may surprise you.
After all, everyone and their mother will tell you that in order to lose weight, you have to avoid as much food as possible.
But the truth is, you have to EAT in order to LOSE weight.
The body is like a furnace. It cannot burn of any fat without energy, and you won't get any energy if you don't eat.
