Did you know that if you crash diet or you change things too quickly with your diet, your body goes into what is known as State Of Alert. This means that your body goes into shut down mode and doesn't like what is happening. Most people go onto a crash diet to lose weight and think this is the answer but it isn't. Did you know when you do this your body will actually hold onto more fat and you won't lose it. You may hop on the scales and notice you are losing pounds of weight, but guess what, this isn't body fat. This will be things like water retention and muscle mass and this is bad. If you lose muscle mass then you are going to slow your metabolism, and what helps burn fat??? Yes, your metabolism!
Treat dieting like an aircraft landing on a runway. The pilots of the aircraft begin the descent and make sure they are able to land properly on the runway 30 minutes before they land. They make sure everything is ok to land before reaching the runway. Imagine what would happen if they left it to the last minute and landed the aircraft without careful planning, it would be a disaster. Make sure when it comes to your diet you give yourself enough time and you plan it out correctly.
