Eat More, Lose More (Really?)

This is a great article from the Team Beachbody Newsletter…

Eat More, Lose More. (Really?)
By Justine Holberg

You work out practically every day and you’re feeling good because you’ve lost some weight. Until a week or so passes and you can’t get the scale to budge. It’s like an invisible wrench has been thrown into the works. Now what?


You start second-guessing everything you’re doing…

* Maybe I’m eating too much?
* Should I work out harder?
* Do I have to live on parsley and hot water?

So you re-strategize. You slash calories and step up the intensity of your workouts. Unfortunately, after another week, you’re still not losing. Now you want to give up altogether. But before you throw in the towel, ask yourself this:

Am I eating enough?

Contrary to popular belief, sometimes you have to eat more to lose weight. While that may sound counter-intuitive, it often does the trick. Here’s why:

1. Metabolism is the key to weight loss. If you don’t eat enough, or often enough, your metabolism slows to a crawl and weight loss becomes more difficult, especially when you’re exercising. That’s why skipping meals isn’t a good idea if the goal is to shed pounds.

Tip: Always eat breakfast to kick-start metabolism and try eating mini-meals throughout the day to keep your metabolism fired up. (Shakeology is the best selling meal replacement shake in the nation.)

2. To keep your metabolism up, you MUST eat. Conventional wisdom dictates that when you first start dieting, the less you eat, the better. While it’s true that you often should eat less, eating too little can backfire over time. As your body composition changes, your body will think it’s starving, which can make it hold on to fat. (The process actually has to do with excessive release of a hormone called cortisol, but you don’t need to know the details, so we’ll just call it fat.) To avoid this, most experts agree that over time, you shouldn’t eat fewer than 1,200 calories per day for women, 1,500 for men. If your daily diet consists of fewer calories than that, consider eating more.

Tip: Keep a food diary to track calories.

3. You need more calories when you work out. If you’re exercising while following a low-calorie eating plan, you’ll need to take into account the calories you’re burning. That’s because it’s now easier to enter starvation mode. Let’s say you’re burning 400 calories and only eating 1,200 to 1,300 calories per day. This means you’re really only taking in 800 to 900 calories per day before you begin to calculate how your body composition is changing. Muscle burns more calories at rest than fat does, so as your body changes, you need to eat more to keep the weight loss coming.

Tip: Drink an after-workout recovery drink like P90X Results and Recovery Formula®. After hard workouts, its calories are utilized so quickly by your body, some people refer to them as “free calories.” They really aren’t, but those calories will ensure that your muscles (and metabolism) recover quickly.

And remember this:

Figuring out to what to eat, how much to eat, and when to eat isn’t easy. That’s why people often refer to losing weight as a journey. It takes a few different paths to get there. Sometimes you have to adjust your ratio of protein, fat, and carbs to start losing again. Or adjust your calorie level, which can include eating more to lose weight.

Tip: Use the Team Beachbody® Meal Planner. It can make figuring out your calories much, much easier. You can personalize an eating plan that takes your workouts into consideration.

Finally, if you’re still on the fence about needing to eat more to lose weight: You might be thinking, “How come I know some really skinny people who barely eat?”

The answer is this: You can eventually lose weight by not eating. It’s called starving. Reduce calories enough and your body will start breaking down its muscle tissue, and this will result in weight loss. However, it makes your body increase its emergency hormonal responses, which also causes your body to be stressed and hang onto fat, making it.very easy to gain the weight back again.

So I hope you take this thought away with you today: The idea is to keep your metabolism revving and running. This will help you get healthy and stay strong. Eat the right amount of food to help your body continuously burn calories, and you’re more likely to shed those unwanted pounds.

God’s Pharmacy is Amazing!

God’s Pharmacy is Amazing!

It’s been said that God first separated the salt water from the fresh, made dry land, planted a garden, made animals and fish… all before making a human. God made and provided what we’d need before we were born. These foods are best and more powerful when eaten raw. God left us a great clue as to what foods help what part of our body!

– A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye… and YES, science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.

– A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. All of the research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure heart and blood food.

– Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.

– A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.

– Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.

– Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and many more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% calcium. If you don’t have enough calcium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.

– Avocados, Eggplant and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female – they look just like these organs. Today’s research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this? It takes exactly nine (9) months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (mo dern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).

– Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male sterility.

– Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.

– Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries

– Oranges, Grapefruits, and other Citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.

– Onions look like the body’s cells. Research shows onions clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. Garlic also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.

God is in Control!
