Eat More To Lose Weight

Although creating a calorie deficit is necessary to promote weight loss, restricting your calories too much is a bad idea. .

Excessive calorie restriction may lead to breakdown of muscle tissue for energy and further fat storage. Additionally, basic energy expenditure may slow down in order to conserve energy, you may feel tired and avoid staying active due to low energy levels which over time may cause weight gain.

Following a diet that worked for someone else may not work for you and diet trends are not individualized. Everyone is different and has different calorie requirements based on activity level, medical conditions, age, height, weight, and many other factors.

If you have been working hard to change your diet and aren’t seeing or feeling the results you want or if you think you might not be eating enough, make an appointment with our Dietitian to discuss how much food and what kinds of food YOUR body needs!
