If you are new in the fast metabolism diet, you might be surprised and feel awkward with how the fast metabolism diet works. Contrary to the traditional diet we’re familiar with, you find yourself confused about the opposing ideas and principles from traditional diet and FMD. One thing is for sure, the community doesn’t want to create confusion to its followers while undertaking the diet’s journey. So let’s refocus on healing your metabolism and in losing weight. Here is the metabolic truth you need to know to clear some speculations:
You must EAT food to lose Weight
In the traditional diet we’ve learned that if you wanted to lose weight, you should eat less food. That is NOT true. Why? If you eat less food, your body will send signals to your body to store fat since your body didn’t know when it could receive food again. Withholding yourself from eating will totally ruin your dieting. And we don’t want that! We wanted to eliminate those fats in your body. We are required to eat and eat only the allowed food list. Eating the right food strategically will enhance your metabolism. The moment your metabolism starts kicking, will burn the fats and food you eat and convert it into fuel.
Another thought to ponder on is that, you need to eat breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. In the fast metabolism diet, it is strongly advised not skip it. Be sure to eat breakfast within 30 minutes after waking up. And remember, don’t engage to workouts or exercise without having breakfast yet.
Losing Weight is Not About Calories
Are you familiar with the term “calories in, calories out”? Do you experience frequent headache computing how much food you should eat to follow the right calorie intake? Well, to tell you, you’re not studying Math here! Don’t bother yourself with those calories, instead focus yourself on eating the right and allowed foods on your phase. Dieting is about eating the right and nutritious food to lose weight not calculating calories. Save yourself from that mindset!
Drinking Water is important in Losing Weight
Drinking water is important if you wanted to lose weight quickly. Almost 70% of your body is composed of water. Without water, your body couldn’t function very well. That also means if you’re not drinking enough water, your metabolism won’t be able to function well and burn the fats in your body. Water is very helpful in cleansing your body as it secretes toxins out of your body.
In fast metabolism diet, it is recommended for you to drink half of your body weight in ounces.
With these metabolic truths, it’s time for you to adjust your mindset and be friends with food again. I wish you a happy and healthy journey as you go on the fast metabolism diet.
