Don’t paint yourself into a corner when trying to lose bodyfat – aggressively restricting calories for long periods of time results in adaptations of your metabolism. Restricting calories too much causes leptin levels plummet and energy expenditure goes down – then you stall and drop calories even lower…this is a vicious cycle that often confuses and frustrates people.
When you stall, it’s not always wise to restrict calories more – assess your situation and make sure you are not looking at water retention. Sometimes increasing caloric intake will HELP the situation as your body adjusts to its new setpoint. Increasing food intake and thus increasing metabolism and decreasing the stress on your body can be helpful in avoiding the pitfalls of obsessive dieting. Remember, fat loss is not a linear journey and there can be long term negative consequences to starving yourself with aggressive obsessive dieting.
