Those popular “miracle pills” and the unrealistic promises of late night infomercials are not going to help you reach your weight loss goals. There is no magical weight loss method. You must eat a well rounded diet and get your body moving more if you want to keep the weight off. There is no way around the hard work. Some people do take off excess weight by starving their bodies or purging after a binge, but this will only hurt your body, not make it healthy. It is essential to learn how your body uses the calories you take in if you want to lose weight.
Your Body is a Functioning Machine
The human body works in amazing ways. The food we eat is mere fuel that is used by the body to repair itself, to give us energy to do the tasks we want to do and to protect us. That’s where fat comes in. Your body doesn’t know that society deems fat ugly and unattractive. The main purpose of fat is to insulate your body so it stays warm and to cushion your organs, bones, and muscle. Your fat stores are a security in case a famine comes along and food becomes less available. If you understand these things, you can use your body’s processing of food to your advantage. Eating the right amounts of the correct foods at the most appropriate times of day, you can prevent much of your food intake from being stored as fat.
