Don’t drop Calories too Fast! It can cause weight gain.

Avoid cutting your calories too fast.
Fast, dramatic weight loss can cause issues with your body’s metabolism and muscle mass. When you lose a lot of weight quickly, you should closely monitor where you are losing the weight from. Is it water weight, body fat or muscle mass you are losing? In the majority of cases, it comes from your lean muscle mass! This can cause serious issues with your metabolism. Muscle is your body’s most potent and active tissue for burning calories and body fat. It’s basically your body’s “furnace” and you always want to keep it burning hot. When someone loses a lot of weight from crash dieting or some other unhealthy way of dropping the weight, the body’s lean muscle mass cannibalizes itself and you lose some of the most powerful tissue for keeping your body lean and trim.
Making things worse, you decide to quite your diet and return to unhealthy eating habits. Your calorie intake increases again, but now that your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) is lowered and you have lost muscle mass, you end up stacking on the body fat very quickly! This is where the saying “yo-yo” dieting came from, and is one of the main reasons why so many people have a difficult time losing weight and keeping it off.
Using a natural supplement like Caralluma fimbriata can really help you lose weight and keep it off. By suppressing your appetite without side effects, you can lose weight gradually and controllably without attacking your own muscle tissue. If you increase exercise while you’re losing weight, your muscle mass will not be depleted, but rather will increase – leading to burning more fat and the body shape you desire.
