August 25, 2011Fasting to lose weight is a recipe for being miserable...and ensuring you'll put whatever weight you lose back on! Fasting decreases blood sugar which makes you feel sick and weak! Additionally, starving yourself causes you to lose as much muscle as fat. Muscle burns calories so when you lose muscle your metabolism slows down, reducing your ability to lose weight. It's a vicious cycle! When you stop fasting and go back to a normal diet, you quickly put back on the weight you lost -- and sometimes more! Another factor comes into play when fasting. The human body has a complex system of checks and balances. When you starve yourself it thinks you're really starving and the metabolism slows to conserve energy! The best recipe for weight loss is a healthy diet and 30 to 60 minutes of exercise per day!
