Stop Playing the Weight Loss Game
You cannot outsmart your metabolism. Eat less and you burn less fat, exercise more and you will become more hungry. Cut back on your sleep and watch your cravings escalate. The weight loss world has tricked you into believing it is possible to win a battle of wills against your own physiology. The metabolism will always win. This is why research shows 2/3 of those playing the weight loss game end up fatter 2 years later than they were before the diet. To escape the weight loss trap you need an approach that works with, not against your physiology. That means eating more of the right things more often and exercising in a way that does not result in compensatory eating. Stop playing the weight loss game!
