Dieting is something that billions of people all over the world engage in. Every person has either tried dieting or knows someone who has gone on a diet. This is because for any sort of body shaping, body building, or weight loss, dieting is the most important thing that you need to watch and control. The diet is what makes your body what it is. Even though exercise will help quite a bit, nothing is achieved without a proper diet being there as well.
In this article we will be talking about some of the major mistakes people make when they decide to go on a diet. The major mistake in focus will be the infamous idea that you should lower the amount of food you eat and also cut down on the calories you eat. Now if this sounds like a good idea to you, it might be because you do not know just how dangerous this can be. The idea a lot of people have when they go on an extreme diet that involves eating less or reducing the calorie intake in their body below the daily recommended amount is that it reduces the fat in their body because the body will begin to eat up the fat to keep up energy levels in the body.
This is not how your body works, however, as the body does not increase the fat burning, instead it just increases the fat created and burns the protein in your body as it wants to save the fat for later emergency uses where you might need more energy. This happens because the body thinks you are starving and goes in to a preservation mode where fat is kept in reserves for later use. You can read more about it online for proper research.
