Lose More than 2 lbs a week

When you lose more than two pounds a week

you’re putting your body at risk

of losing muscle mass.

Muscle mass is the amount of muscle tissue you have in the body,

And, muscles help keep your metabolism active.

Therefore, if you’re loosing muscle mass,

you’re losing your muscles

which will slow down your metabolism.

In other words, if you’re on a calorie deprivation diet

one that’s making you lose more than 2 lbs a week

you will slow down your metabolism

which in turn will affect your weight loss in the long run.

How?

Once you get off the diet, you’ll probably gain the weight back plus more

Why?

Because, once you start eating your normal meals

your metabolism will have a harder time

processing the foods and burning calories for energy!
