Health Tip of the Week - Don't Skip Meals to Lose Weight

Health Tip of the Week

Don't Skip Meals to Lose Weight
Skipping meals to lose weight is self defeating. When you skip meals, your metabolism slows down, conserving resources and actually burns slower. Also, you brain thinks it's starving, and tells your body to store more food, so you actualy can get fatter by skipping meals. Rather than skip meals, eat smaller meals more often. This keeps you body running at peak efficiency, and lets you burn fat off optimally.

True.

Its also becoming known that dietary fat is not necessarily the cause of "being fat". Carbs are now thought to be the culprit.

It kinda makes sense. Too much, you store. Deprive, you conserve. For optimum burn, intake only what you need.
