Say No To Crash Diets!

Most people lose a combination of muscle and fat when losing weight. Crash diets produce loss of water and muscle weight. The more you starve to lose weight, the greater your body eats its muscles for energy. That's why diets that are too low in calorie are not good. Starving yourself to lose weight not only shuts down your metabolism, but it also attacks muscle instead of fat. It will be extremely impossible to lose weight as your body goes into starvation mode to hang onto each calorie. A moderate diet is always best. A good rule of thumb is to never go below 1200 calories per day. The only exception to that is if you are medically supervised. New weight loss tools have been added to http://www.gracetoday.com They include USDA calorie and nutrient count of common foods, USDA pyramid food groups tracker, and a handy daily food calorie tracker calculator. Luk 7:35 But wisdom is justified of all her children.

Have a blessed day!
