[Mobile Cellphone Info] 7 Tips to Control That Eating Thing and Burn Fat

Mobile Cellphone Info has posted a new item, '7 Tips to Control That Eating
Thing and Burn Fat'

If you want to burn fat, you must "control that eating thing." Going on
starvation diets just to lose weight won't work to transform your body. You end
up having what you're trying to avoid--weight gain.If you've never tried a
starvation diet, you're not missing anything except misery. And, if you're
consistently eating too much, that's misery and weight gain too. Food is meant
to nourish and energize your body and it should be enjoyed in the right
Here are 7 tips to get your eating under control:
1. Make a commitment to a lifetime of fitness and health and not to a diet.
Don't become too concerned with pounds on the weigh scale. Those who have
succeeded at transforming their bodies from fat to lean have health and fitness
practices that they do on most days. It becomes a sustainable lifestyle. You
need to keep a food journal until you know what, how much and when to eat.
2. When you get in the habit of going on starvation diets, its hard to stop. The
less food you eat, the more weight youll lose, right? Sorry, but it just doesnt
work this way in the long-run.
Starvation slows the fat-burning process. Your body relies on the nutrients in
whole, natural foods for fuel. When you starve yourself, it senses the downward
shift in your caloric intake and kicks into starvation mode. When this happens,
your metabolism will slow down and your body will hold on to stored fat in order
to conserve energy.
Muscle mass needs more energy to function than fat. Basically, the more muscle
mass you have, the more calories youll burn. If you continue to starve yourself,
your body will feed on your muscle tissue and make it even harder for you to
lose weight.
Obviously, if you starve yourself long enough, youll have no choice but to lose
weight. But the weight loss wont be healthy, and it will show in your
appearance. Youll become emaciated and your body will start to look like an old
bag of bones.
The weight lost from starvation diets always comes back. Starvation slows your
metabolism down. And it can take months for it to return to normal. As soon as
you start eating again, youll likely gain all of the weight you lost back, and
more. In the end, youll wind up bigger than you were before you started
On the other end of the spectrum, your hard-earned muscle mass will be covered
by layers of fat if you consistently eat too much.
3. Chronic starvation dieters end up with damaged health. If you are eating 900
calories a day, that is not enough food to even support your basal metabolic
When you go without food, you dont get any of the essential nutrients needed for
good health. This can result in fatigue, kidney failure, heart failure,
gallstones, ulcers, hair loss, muscle weakness and osteoporosis. This is just a
short list of the physical problems a starvation diet can cause. We havent even
touched on the mental stuff.
Its not uncommon for extremely calorie-restrictive dieters to struggle with
depression, anger, indifference, memory loss, poor concentration, hallucinations
and mood swings. Starvation can also increase your chances of suffering with
eating disorders like bulimia and anorexia.
In essence, your health will be a mess if you try to lose weight by starving.
The worst part about it is that some of the health issues that arise from
starvation diets can cause irreversible damage to your body and require
long-term hospitalization or lifelong medical care.
If you plan to turn starvation dieting into a lifestyle, youll end up in a body
bag way before your time. No amount of skinny is worth your life. Dont let the
desperation to lose weight push you to go on a starvation diet.
4. Starvation dieters are not concerned with burning body fat. You MUST change
your body's composition. You must increase muscle mass to become a fat-burning
machine. This keeps the weight off your body for good. You don't need to be a
body builder but you need to replace the fat (to an acceptable body fat
percentage) on your body with muscle mass. This will give you the lean, healthy
body you need.
You must do more than cardio exercise to change your body's composition. "Cardio
only" will not lean out your body. Too much cardio will waste away your muscle
Make a commitment to full-body strength training. Among other things, it builds
muscle mass, speeds up your metabolism (the body has to work harder to maintain
muscle) and helps improve your bone density. And, youll look great.
5. Starvation dieters lose water weight. Burn body fat and lose weight.
If you lose 20 pounds in 10 days using severe calorie restriction with no
exercise (you probably won't have the energy to exercise), just about all of
that weight loss will be due to lost muscle mass and water weight.
The problem is further compounded if you gained weight without exercise. The
composition of this weight gain is mainly fat and water retention. I have seen
individuals with up to 70% body fat.
One big cause of water retention is too much salt consumption (sodium). If you
eat many processed foods and not many whole, natural foods, your sodium
consumption is too high---and you will take on more water weight.
So, you find yourself regaining this weight quickly when you begin to eat the
carbohydrates, proteins and fats that your body needs. Why? Because you will
also replenish water stores in your body's cells.
6. Veteran starvation dieters are frequent users. The typical dieter tries a new
plan four times a year. "We have this mentality that a diet is something to go
on and then get off as quickly as possible," says FITNESS advisory board member
Madelyn Fernstrom, PhD, founding director of the University of Pittsburgh's
Weight Management Center. "But lasting weight loss requires making lifestyle
changes that will work long-term."
7. Quick weight loss veterans deal with slowed metabolism, a weaker immune
system, hormonal imbalances, loss of lean mass, increased body fat, decreased
energy levels and disrupted sleep patterns. Is that worth it?
Stop starving yourself (or eating too much), start eating right and start
building your body the right way. Its worth the effort.
