5 Questions to Ask Before Trying Any Diet
🥗Is it one size fits all?
A lot of weight loss programs are designed for the average woman, who is 5’4 and based on a moderate activity level. If you re taller or shorter, less or more active, or you’re a man, you shouldn’t be following the same plan as a woman of average height who exercises for 30 minutes five days a week. If you can’t or don’t know how to modify an approach for your body’s needs, it probably won’t work for you
✌️Does the premise make sense?
This is often because many diets have nothing to do with science, or how the human body optimally works, but because you ate less or ate differently, you lost weight. And while that may be one way to cut excess calories, it may not be the best way to build or maintain muscle mass and lose body fat, optimize energy, and best support your immune system and overall health
😇Is it safe and healthy?
There are a lot of ways to lose weight, but some of them result in weight loss at the expense of your health
🍕Can I dine out?
If you’re following a plan that doesn’t allow you to dine out, you only have two choices--don’t go out, or go off the diet, a lose-lose scenario
🍫Can I splurge?
It’s not a good idea to completely cut out the certain food groups out of your diet, unless you’re allergic to them. And if you doesn’t allow yourself to eat a cookie, you might want to rethink what you’re really doing to yourself.

Here are the 4 aspects that constitute our bodies' energy expenditure, and the ways to burn more calories by exploiting how they work:
𝟏) 𝐌𝐮𝐬𝐜𝐥𝐞 𝐌𝐚𝐬𝐬💪 - 1 kg of lean muscle mass burns 100 calories daily, meaning the more muscle mass you have the higher your metabolism (the energy your body burns while at rest).
𝟐) 𝐖𝐚𝐥𝐤/ 𝐌𝐨𝐯𝐞 𝐌𝐨𝐫𝐞🚶♂️ - The calories burned from walking and moving around all day is many times higher than 1 hour of intense exercise. Take the stairs, park further away, stand up instead of sitting down, do house chores. .
𝟑) 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐭𝐞𝐢𝐧 & 𝐅𝐢𝐛𝐞𝐫🥚🥦 - Protein(lean meat) takes the most amount of energy to digest, compared to carbs and fat. While fiber keeps you full for longer, making you eat less.
𝟒) 𝐄𝐱𝐞𝐫𝐜𝐢𝐬𝐞🏋️♂️ - Although exercise doesn't burn that much calorie, weight training helps to build muscles, which will in turn burn more calories over time.

Oh, you think being fat is your ally. But you merely adopted the fatness, I was born in it, moulded by it. I didn't see the the scale go down until I was already a man. 😜
Never was I afraid of fats, i was fat for my whole life, and then I figure out the way to lose it, just with food amd workout of course. And once you know how to do that, you're never afraid of being fat anymore. Which is why I purposed my overdid my bulk which ended a month and half back. Im still on a deficit cirrently. Is it really that hard to lose fats? Yes and no. If it's easy, you have a strong mind, if it's hard, then you're have a weak mind covered in jiggly fats. Come on, deal with it, it is hard for me too, but only in the beginning. All it takes to lose weight is eat less than you require. It's the nature of human, not saying this cause I've done it. But trust me, I can do it again as many time as I want, cause it's all in my head. It's all about consistency.
