How to Prevent the Yo-Yo Effect
Getting fit for life can be a challenge. One of the problems with many diets is that when a person goes off them, they will gain back the weight they lost and sometimes more. This is referred to as the “Yo-Yo” effect. Here is why it happens and how you can prevent the Y0-Yo effect:
When you go on a low calorie diet, your body lowers the metabolism in order to conserve energy stores of fat. You also may be losing muscle weight or water weight. Then when you go back to regular eating, because you still have a low metabolism your body will store fat and you could regain your weight. This is referred to as yo-yo dieting!
You not only don’t lose the weight permanently, you can damage your health if your low calorie diet is not nutritionally balanced or if the products you use are not made from natural ingredients!
How is the Shaklee 180 Weight Loss Program different?
