Fast Weight Loss
In addition to health concerns, crash diets and rapid weight loss can thrust your body into starvation mode, and your body’s not happy about that. You go wild with hunger. You have a huge desire to binge.
Plus, your body starts clinging to whatever calories do come in. Rapid weight loss, in short, may dramatically slow down your metabolism.
In fact, that’s exactly what recent research on rapid losers found. The rate at which they burned calories plummeted. This happens in part because rapid weight loss beats up your body composition. The percentage of your body that is fat shoots up, and the percentage that is lean, calorie-burning muscle falls.
So, rather than asking, “How fast can I lose weight?” the much more important question is: “How can I lose weight safely and permanently?”
Permanent Weight Loss
The best and scientifically-supported way to lose weight safely and permanently is with a program like Pritikin. With the Pritikin Eating Plan, you’re eating a lot of good food that fills you up, staving off hunger and binges, but for the lowest calorie cost. There’s more good news. You no longer need to count calories. Instead, you’re focusing on a smarter, simpler approach: calorie density.
With Pritikin exercise, you’re engaged in a highly customized exercise program that works long-term, not just for a few weeks of extreme exercise. Slowly but surely, you build muscle and burn fat. That’s really important. With more muscle, you have a higher metabolic rate, which can help tremendously in shedding weight, and keeping it off.
Bottom Line: With the Pritikin Program, you get it all: a leaner body, a healthier body, and a higher metabolism. Plus, you’re never forced to live with chronic hunger. Every day, you’re eating till you’re satisfied and full. Life feels good. You feel good. This is how you lose weight safely and permanently.
