If losing weight was easy, nobody would be overweight. Every person’s body is different, and this holds true when it comes to embarking on a weight-loss journey as well. There is no one-size-fits-all routine when it comes to eating and working out to lose weight, but there are some general rules that everyone needs to know before starting their personal regimen.
With so much information out there and plenty of misconceptions, we’ve rounded up some do’s and don’ts you should consider before starting any form of dieting to reach your goals.
Don’t: Starve yourself
When you starve yourself, your body literally goes into survival mode. This means that it thinks it won’t be fed with energy for a while, so it holds on extra tight to sugars, fat, and all the stuff we want to lose. In addition, a slow metabolism causes the calories to digest differently in our bodies. Not good.
