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.
Once you get off the diet, you’ll probably gain the weight back plus more
Because, once you start eating your normal meals
your metabolism will have a harder time
processing the foods and burning calories for energy!
