Fat leaves when the body is pleased!

One of the biggest misconceptions about dieting is I can lose fat and have the body I want by simply starving myself.  And you will become “skinny” by drastically lowering your daily caloric intake.  The problem lies in the basic number of calories your body needs to function.  In general for women this is between 1100-1200 calories per day and men 1500-1600.  This depends on the type of work you do, how active you are, and body composition.

The question I have for you is this really the type of body and quality of life you want for the long haul.  By feeding your body a balanced diet filled with vitamins and nutrients needed for all systems to function effectively, you can rid it of the unwanted fat.  It makes total sense when you think about giving it what it needs to operate a maximum capacity and it will have little need to store additional fat for reserve.  Also feeling invigorated, energized, and alive is how I want to feel on a daily basis and I would want the same for you.

So I think the least we could all do would be to spend a little time and effort getting our diets right.  Looking our best is a great benefit, but feeling our best is priceless!!!!
