If you want to lose weight, you need to start eating (avoiding these mistakes)

There are a lot of people who live their entire lives counting calories and foods to eat and not eat.

And they certainly don’t live happy lives, especially starting from the assumption of always having to analyze food and then always trying to stay within certain calories .

But there are times when eating more means losing more weight.

Now you are saying to yourself: this last statement is a hoax, you are kidding me.

Absolutely not.

The problem of little food

If you want to lose weight, you have to start eating (avoiding these mistakes): the problem of little food

Let’s say you are a pretty active woman who does gymnastics 3 times a week.

Let’s say you have based your calorie intake on 1300 calories per day.

400 go away in the gym session and 900 are left to feed your body!

They are too few!

And your body, as if you were in the middle of the longest shipwreck ever, goes into hunger mode , absurdly slowing down your metabolism and saving calories by sipping them as if we never had much to eat.

The body slows things down, slows down fat burning, and actually begins to eat its own muscles and waste them, especially if we are dealing with weights and cardio in the gym.

Eat what you need

If you want to lose weight, you have to start eating (avoiding these mistakes): eat what you need

Don’t be in a hurry, don’t eat too little, you must always measure an acceptable caloric deficit within 400 calories less per day.

If you are an active woman and need to lose 5 kilograms , the calorie deficit can even be lower.

Make sure you are eating enough to support body processes and muscle growth.

Don’t expect to abruptly remove a macro ingredient such as a carbohydrate.

Our body could suffer from it but, above all, it could regain all the lost kilos in no time as soon as it was replenished.

A flexible diet is a way of getting into a better relationship with food, seeking slow and steady weight loss which is one of the long-term goals, without feeling deprived of food.


It is enough just to follow a diet that has a little bit of everything with it, that is attentive to the real needs of our body and our habits and that is set on an evident personalization of what our desired metabolic cycle is.

There is no need for crash diets or eliminating essential ingredients and foods for weight loss first by eating less than our body requires.

As mentioned before, it is a bad habit because it slows down the metabolism more.

Then, instead of sending our body into a tailspin, it is better to eat as much as our body needs, without too many devices and without straining it too much, it would only achieve the opposite result with a significant waste of time and nutrients.
