It seems like simple logic to eat less food, exercise more and you will lose weight right? It's true you will, but for how long? Is it healthy? Is it doing damage to your body in the long run? Find out here!
Let's get this straight, If you are overweight and you eat too many calories, then eating less and training more is obviously needed. But then what happens when you lose weight and become a healthy weight? Do you still keep eating less and training more? Not necessarily.
If you are a healthy weight trying to tone up, reducing your calories to a very low amount whilst training 3-5 times a week isn't always going to help reach your goal. Especially if you take into account Recommended Daily Allowance of calories (Average Male: 2500 and Average Woman 2000) This is without training regularly!
Lets put it into simple terms, If your body is doing more work day in day out i.e exercising as well as your everyday activites, surely you'd need to give it more energy to feed that? You wouldn't drive a longer distance in your car and put in less petrol would you? Your body is the same, so the simple key is:
May seem crazy and as I said before if you are overeating then this may be slightly different. But for a man or woman of a relatively healthy weight with a standard diet, reducing calorie intake will one: Make your body want to store the only food you do give it which increases body fat, make you lose water weight which is only temporary, and when you do then up your calories again for whatever reason, your body will hold on to all of it increasing weight! This is a result of you depriving your body for however long you have reduced calories leaving it in a catabolic state, whilst continuing to exercise extensively.
