Question by ClumsyClumsy:]: Confusion about weight loss? How is it possible to have permanent weight loss if dieting slows down metabolism
well, i know that eating less will have the body adjust to the new calorie intake and thus, no further weight loss. So how is it possible to have permanent weight loss if eating less doesn’t work?

Please give tips and suggestions, people who have sucessfully lost weight. thanks soo much!

The trick of losing weight is to fool your metabolism into thinking it is getting fed normally.If you try to lose weight by starving yourself,then your metabolism kicks in to low gear and hangs on to every scrap you feed yourself,making weight-loss impossible.Plus,after you have managed to starve yourself and not die,the minute you start eating again,your body sucks up every calorie it gets,and you pack the weight back on.
If you want to lose weight,which is a very difficult thing to do,you have to eat proper food:grains;veggies;low-fat meat./fish;drink plenty of water;and do some exercise.It sounds very simple,but it is very hard to do when you are de-toxing your body from fats and sugars.
Ask your doctor for an appropriate food plan for you.Don’t use or think of the word”diet.” It only serves to defeat you because it implies deprivation.And as humans,we do not like to be deprived of anything.
I might also suggest that you join a weight-loss group,like Overeaters Anonymous,or better still,a group like Weight Watchers.it is easier to lose weight if you are partnered with people who have the same goal as you.
Good luck to you,and eat healthy!!
PS:If you are a young person and need to lose weight:Start now because with every year,it becomes more and more difficult to lose weight and keep it off.Take the word of an old geezer.I know whereof I speak,sadly.
