Why Counting Calories To Lose Weight Will No Longer Work After World War 2?
However, the caveat here is this: calories counting only works in the past where there are no processed food.
Imagine eating a banana that is 120 calories versus a kit kat chocolate that is 45 calories. By the law of counting calories to lose weight, you should be eating kit kat chocolate that is lower in calories. However, your body knows how to process and digest natural food like banana but they do not know how to process processed food and will hence store them as fat cells causing you on the contrary to put on weight.
Additionally, when you eat less calories, your body will tell system that you do not need to processed so much food and this will cause your whole metabolism rate to slow down and your fat burning capacity to drop drastically. All these collectively will cause you to gain weight.
This is the reason why many people quit on their weight loss journey because they do not see much effect. Losing weight takes more than determination and counting calories. It is about the understanding your core problem that is making you gain weight. Most importantly, you need to find a sustainable weight loss solution such as HFFP diet – a diet high in fibre, fats and protein where it is healthy and you know you can stick to for a long time.
