Many dieters tend to starve themselves in the belief that this is the quickest way to lose weight. This often means not eating breakfast, fasting until lunch or virtually not eating. These types of practices can be very counter-productive if you are trying to lose weight and keep it off. When you starve yourself your body quickly recognises that it's not getting any food. To help preserve as much energy as possible, your body slows down its metabolic rate so you become very efficient at preserving calories. The result is your weight loss can slow right down or virtually stop! A much better approach is to eat small meals more often during the day. While you may be eating a lot less calories, eating regularly 'tricks' your metabolism into think it's getting food very regularly, which can actually speed up your metabolism. You lose weight faster and have more energy - ideal! This is the secret to Celebrity Slim's success.
