4. Don’t go too low in calories or carbs
Diets lower in carbs or total calories may be helpful in losing body fat, but they come at a metabolic cost. Over time, your body catches on to the fact you’re restricting energy and decreases production of certain hormones as a result, causing you to burn fewer calories.
It’s part of your body’s survival instinct—it doesn’t want you to waste away. The problem is when you eventually return to normal eating. Your metabolism will still be suppressed, making rebound weight gain an even greater concern.
Lower your carbs and calories gradually over time, make time for cheat meals once a week, and consume the right kind of nutrients by cutting out junk foods and prioritizing clean ones.
