New Years Resolutions

"If you keep doing things the way you've always done them,
you will keep getting the same results you've always gotten."

Who hasn't heard the above quote? We all have. But do we truely understand what it means when it comes to our fitness and health? How many have gone on the latest fad diets only to gain the fat back and more when they started eating again? But yet each year on New Years Eve millions make the weight lass resolution. Each year it is another diet. All too often it is a crash diet where they are barely eating anything.

It is scientifically proven that when you go on a crash diet you put your body into starvation mode and everything you eat is converted to fat while at the same time the body is canabilizing your muscle. Why would your body do that and not use the fat as energy? Well it does that for the first 24-48 hrs then after that survival starvation mode kicks in. In this mode because muscle is more metabolically costly the body burns up your muscle and stores fat.

In this mode you are losing weight but you aren't discarding any fat. In fact during this period you can actually be gaining fat. How many stay on a diet for more than a month? Especially a restricted calorie diet? Not fact I am fully convinced that crash diets are the reason for most if not all of the eating disorders.

Don't you think it is time to get that healthy beach ready body you have been wanting instead of shying away from the beach because you are afraid of the "beached whale" comment? Isn't it time to do something for you?
