One of the reasons people don’t get the weight loss results they want is that sometimes they can starve their bodies.
This can happen in two basic ways. The first is to do it inadvertently, such as when you are just busy and forget to eat. Another is when you intend to starve your body of food in an attempt to speed up your results.
Irrespective of how it happens, either scenario in this case is just as damaging. While you are cutting back on the calories you consume, which can lead to short-term weight loss, the problem here is that you will be slowing down your metabolism.
This means that after the starvation is over, your body will hold onto the next meal you eat for life, expecting to be starving again.
If you let starvation become a habit, you will actually be contributing to your own weight gain in the future.
Therefore, make sure that your meals are not spaced more than four hours apart. As long as you do this, you’ll be supporting the healthy metabolism you’ll need to lose the kind of weight you’ve committed to.
