There are no miracle diets, therefore to obtain a weight reduction sustained over time we must first of all modify eating habits and change our lifestyle.
An unbalanced and extreme diet in which some nutrients are completely eliminated or very few calories are consumed, produces a “survival” reaction in the body of those who suffer from overweight.
They begin to “burn” the minimum necessary and store the rest, it is say, a series of metabolic reactions aimed at energy saving are activated. On the other hand, when it comes to needing energy. It is easier for the organism to obtain it from the muscle through its degradation, than from the fat reserves.
That is the reason why weight is quickly lost with hypo-caloric and restrictive diets: what is really being lost is muscle mass and water, while fat reserves are maintained.
This coupled with what has been described above, causes the loss of weight to stop with the passage of days. When on the one hand the savings mechanisms are activated and on the other, a good part of the muscle tissue has already been depleted.
When these diets are abandoned, the dreaded rebound effect occurs: the organism responds by desperately searching for those nutrients that were lacking during the restriction. But these do not come alone, but are part of foods that contain carbohydrates, proteins or fats. This results in a new weight gain, but this time to a predominance of fat, as muscle mass has decreased. It also explains the increase in cardiovascular risk in those who suffer this type of oscillation.
HOW TO GAIN ENERGY?
We must not forget that a balanced diet includes ALL the food groups: proteins, carbohydrates and fats, together with the required supplements based on the needs and physical activity developed.
As a potent fat burner and coadjutant of a healthy and regulated diet to lose weight, KN Nutrition has formulated EPH 50: a compound of natural stimulants that facilitate the loss of fat transforming it into energy.
- Do not seek to lose weight at the expense of suppressing foods that are necessary.
- Combine a good diet, with exercises and supplements that naturally accelerate your metabolism.
In part II we will provide the recommended list of foods and more tips.
And remember that it is very important to go to a specialized professional to rule out pathologies that affect the metabolism: such as hypothyroidism, hyperinsulinism or diabetes mellitus type 2. Which require apart from nutritional support, a pharmacological treatment.
