Stockholm Personal Diet Plans

A two year old child weighs 20 pounds. So you have asked Stockholm Personal Diet Plans Review your body to burn the weight of a two year old child in just a few weeks. Put like that it may sound more of a challenge. It might help to know what your crash diet is doing to your body. At first there will be a loss of weight continuing for a few days and you will be celebrating. You are using up your body's limited supply of glycogen. As you lose glycogen you lose water and that explains the rapid weight loss. You are also risking dehydration, possible gallstone problems will come later. The body then goes into starvation mode and you start losing muscle as well as fat. Now the more muscle you have the higher your metabolism. So by losing muscle your body slows down its metabolism in order to survive with less food. Which means that your weight loss slows down. You may also find that you are suffering from headaches, irritability, fatigue, insomnia and diarrhoea. Not necessarily all at once, but even one or two is not very pleasant. At this point you could well give up and you will then put back whatever weight you lost. 'Only about one in every six Americans who have been overweight or obese loses weight and maintains that loss' (Penn State College of Medicine). Now we know why. What should you be doing? You should set goals, but here we are back to realism again. It may be a good idea to lose weight for a summer holiday. But if you book your holiday in February and eat junk food until June you will not look like Victoria Beckham in August. If you start a healthy diet and regular exercise in February you just might. That should be your long term goal to keep in the back of your mind, while you achieve your short term goal of losing 1-2 pounds each week. That is the equivalent of two bars of chocolate or an almond croissant at your favourite coffee shop. But you have to do a little more than just giving up chocolate and almond croissants. Give up junk food., you know what it is - everybody else is eating it. Cut down on sugars, animal fats, crisps and fizzy drinks. Clear your fridge of junk food, you will eat it if it is there. You are going to need a lifestyle change, so you must start eating healthy food. Eat plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables, wholemeal grains, lean meat and fish such as mackerel. If that sounds terrible just Google 'Mediterranean recipes' and you will find numerous French and Italian meals which use these ingredients and taste really good. Drink plenty of water, avoid skipping breakfast and eat smaller portions. But do not become a martyr to what you eat. The occasional glass of wine or celebratory meal is fine. Just keep to your new diet most of the time.
