Fasting To Lose Weight

No. Don't do it. There's no worse way to lose weight than by fasting. This is a great way to ruin your body's metabolism for LIFE. It's one of the worst things you can do to your body.

You can lose weight quickly but you must do it in a safe way that is sustainable and that will not slow down your metabolism.

Not only is fasting to lose weight a bad idea, but so is any sort of starvation/low calorie diet. These diets may appear to work in the short term but you really only lose water weight and muscle. Your body actually goes into "starvation mode" when you eat far too few calories and hangs onto the fat you have as a survival method!

Instead of slowing down your metabolism you need to make sure that it stays boosted so that you lose fat and not muscle.

Did you know that each pound of muscle burns 50 calories a day at rest? A pound of fat burns only 2 calories. A person who has muscle is far healthier than one that does not. No you don't have to be a muscle builder but you should do some strength training.

The Day Off Diet
comes with a free strength training program that is highly recommended for building muscle with less time working out. It's now known that most workout routines are highly ineffective and waste a lot of time and energy. It's not about working out harder and longer, it's about working out SMARTER. You can gain more muscle in less time if you know what you are doing. More muscle will allow you to burn more fat and look more fit.
