Natural Secrets To Weight Loss …
Maybe you learned it from a magazine, a celebrity, or some other
“dieter” that told you that was the fastest way to lose weight…
“I just stopped eating so much food, and I got skinny” is
what we hear all the time so it makes sense that it would work for you too,
But is it really that way?
Maybe you can relate to this… You start the day thinking, “I need
to lose belly fatin time for (insert special
event here), so I’m not going to eat at all today!
You are CONVINCED that you can stop eating.
You’re on a willpower “high” because you’re absolutely positive that you can
You skip breakfast, and think, “No problem at all”.
And then in the afternoon, you pump yourself up with some caffeine or pop a
diet pill to suppress your appetite, and you get even more confident that you
are really on the track to getting thin.
But then in the early evening, your body and brain is starting to shut down,
and your emotions are out of control, but still you’re certain that you’ve got
the willpower to make it through…
Until you smell a whiff of that pizza place or that fast food restaurant
that you pass by, and before you know it, you’re stuffing your face and elbow
deep in greasy, fattening food. You wake up from the food coma, and think,
You were so in control and confident all day long, and you were doing so
good… and now, you’ve destroyed it all, and all you’re left with is a massive
dose of indigestion, fat-storage, and GUILT.
You swear to yourself, “Tomorrow, I’m gonna make up for this binge, and I’m
not going to eat anything all day!”… And the cycle repeats.

decades, and you would think that we would’ve learned that it’s just not
REALITY to believe that you can live like this, but here’s probably something
you don’t know…
Starvation Diets Make You Fatter.

Here’s what happens…

in has just run out of food.

There were droughts and famines, and long stretches of time where nothing
grew in the area (this was long before farming or agriculture), so your body
has a very sophisticated way to deal with this…
Your body slows down your metabolism and prepares for the long drought or
famine that is ahead. It slows down your metabolism by immediately getting
rid of the most expensive cells – muscle.
Muscle cells take a lot of ENERGY to keep them alive, and if you’re not getting
enough food, then those are the FIRST to go. So your body registers, “Food
is gone! Gotta get rid of that muscle!”, and it starts to do this immediately.
Your body thinks you’re in starvation mode, and it also does a lot
of amazing things to your brain and energy levels in order to keep you alive –
mostly slowing you down, and pumping you full of “stress hormones” that are
going to give you a temporary rush of energy, but they have long term,
devastating effects on your metabolism and brain chemistry.
Starving yourself gets rid of muscle cells, which slows down your
metabolism, and it also trains your body to store more lose
belly fatcells. Why? Because fat cells are your
“storage cells” that are there to keep you alive when all the food has run out.
So when you break your starvation diet or fast with a binge (which you
ALWAYS do)… then your body is going to make sure that it has even MORE fat
Your body is preparing for the NEXT time that
the food is going to run out, and you’ve already programmed your body to EXPECT
that to happen (that’s the next time you go and starve yourself).
