Why crash diet fails?
“Crash diet,” aka “fad diets” is a diet with extreme nutritional deprivations, severely restricting calorie intake. While some initial weight is lost, the weight usually comes right back when the dieter stops the diet. This is the ABSOLUTELY THE WORST way to lose weight because:
a) Reduction in muscle burn to slow down metabolism, makes it impossible to maintain.
b) Weight that is regained is often more than the starting weight.
c) You are only losing the water weight through the reduced glycogen stored, not the fat weight loss comparing to proper exercise weight loss.
d) Dieters are trapped in a vicious cycle of weight loss and weight gain.
Why does dieting alone fail?
Diet, or restricting calorie intake, alone is a recipe for failure. Diet without proper exercise will likely fail in the long run to keep off your lost pounds. You can initially lose 5 to 10% of your weight in any diet, but then the pounds come right back when the diet stops.
Muscle burns fat. When you diet alone without proper exercise training, you lose your muscle, which makes it even harder to lose weight later. This is why WBX focus on building lean muscles that boosts your metabolism to burn more fat and calories for the rest of your life! Follow our meal plans and you will see a remarkable result.
Why do I need to eat so much fiber?
Fiber is critical in your weight loss diet because it can keep you full for longer periods! We recommend eating your high fiber veggie FIRST in all your meals to make you feel full sooner too!
Why should I eat 3 meals and 2 snacks per day?
You can increase your metabolism by eating smaller meals more often. We recommend eating 3 main meals loaded with vegetable and lean protein, then add 2 healthy snacks such as almonds or fresh fruits to help you reduce cravings.
Why eat slowly?
Because it takes about 20 minutes for the brain to receive the signal that you are already full. If you eat too fast then you will likely eat more food than you really need. So “TAKE IT SLOW” when you eat, chew the food longer and enjoy the taste, you will feel full sooner before you know it!
How many carbohydrates do I eat?
Eating a proper amount of carbs helps you fuel your training and spares muscle breakdown. For a dramatic body transformation result, in the first 4 weeks, we suggest you avoid fruit, dairy, and starches so you can deplete the excess carbs you have accumulated over time and stored in your fat cells. Starting at week 5, you can reintroduce 20-40 grams of carbs per day.
