It sounds like a contradiction – eat to lose weight. After all, every diet you’ve probably ever tried involved depriving yourself of food while increasing your activity level. The prospect of low calories and lots of exercise isn’t very appealing. But losing weight doesn’t have to be that difficult. There is a better way…

A gradual approach to steady weight loss

You dream of losing weight, and the faster, the better, right? Drastically slashing your calorie intake and skipping meals may seem like the fast track to success. But it isn’t sustainable, and speed shouldn’t be your primary focus. If you’re constantly plagued by hunger pangs, you’ll eventually give into temptation.

A better approach is slow and steady weight loss. That’s how to keep your metabolism active, which is crucial for lasting results.

Metabolism is the process by which your body converts what you eat and drink into energy. Even when you’re at rest, your body needs energy for its basic functions, such as breathing, circulating blood, adjusting hormone levels, and growing and repairing cells. The number of calories your body uses to carry out these basic functions is known as your basal metabolic rate or your metabolism.

If you severely limit calories for an extended period of time, your metabolism slows. Your body may go into starvation mode. It then clings to every last pound, and you may feel tired, irritable and depressed. You’ll eventually lose muscle mass and may even experience disturbing side effects such as your hair falling out. Yikes!

Clearly, starvation is not a recipe for long-term, weight-loss success.

When making changes to your diet, you’ll be better able to persevere if you feel full and satisfied. The secret of dieting is to eat enough; enough to keep your body functioning like an efficient machine. Note that eating enough is not the same as eat everything and anything!

Your body needs a nutritious snack or meal every 3-4 hours. That meal should be healthy, pleasantly filling and low in calories. Eating at regular intervals helps your metabolism remain active so you’re consistently burning calories.

Losing weight successfully doesn’t require starvation. For long-term results, you need to make sustainable lifestyle changes. See for yourself with Vida180. Get started with your free diet analysis today!

Shed pounds without exercising

For many people, the hardest part of losing weight is increasing their activity level. Did you know you can lose weight without killing yourself at the gym? While incorporating exercise into your daily routine can accelerate your weight loss and contribute to overall good health, it’s not a necessity. Eating a healthy diet will have a bigger impact on your weight than exercise. As you slim down, you may even find your desire to move more comes naturally. Making incremental changes in your lifestyle is easier and more sustainable than taking drastic actions. “In the last four years, I belonged to a running group, but I participated so irregularly that it hardly was worth it. I didn’t enjoy running, and I wasn’t losing weight. My motivation to exercise only came back after I tried Vida180 and began seeing results. Now I do Nordic walking two to three times a week,” reports Kerstin S. after she lost 48 lbs. with Vida180.
