I have to vent today.... Normally, that's just not me.
I have so many people approach me about my weight loss. I get questions nearly every day about what I'm doing to lose the weight. I absolutely love sharing what I do and how I live! I feel like this was placed on my heart very early on and I'm not shy about it!
But for the love of everything....If you approach me to brag about starving yourself to see results, I am going to be disappointed. I will strongly disagree with you. I will not support your decision to deprive your body of things you absolutely need to survive.
I spoke with someone who bragged to me about their weight loss. As we continued talking and sharing our stories, they admitted to their diet of 300 calories per day.
I'm sorry.....I eat more than that in a whole meal....multiple times a day.
Anything below 1200 calories is starvation for a woman. I was actually speaking to a male.
If you are starving yourself to lose weight, please consider this: If you reach your weight loss goals, what happens next? Can you really see yourself living that way for the rest of your life? If not, what do you think is going to happen when you begin eating food again?
I am living proof that you do not have to go to extremes and starve to lose a considerable amount of weight. If you put your body into starvation mode, you can suffer the consequences of that for up to one year.
It doesn't have to be this way. I promise! Whole foods....Workout....Take Care of Your Body. That's it. There's no secret.
