How Fast Can You Lose Weight?
« on: May 31, 2012, 10:00:03 AM »
When we lose weight((The Best Way to Lose Weight is (Link Spam Removed) we don't just lose fat. We lose a combination of body fat, and muscle tissue. For example, studies show

that when we diet, the weight we lose is on average 75 percent fat and 25 percent muscle. Furthermore, a relatively high

percentage of this weight loss is likely to be water loss. Remember, water accounts for about 70

percent of the total body weight of an average person, with muscle tissue containing roughly 75 percent water (plus 20

percent protein and 5 percent minerals), and body fat containing roughly 50 percent water.
Weight Loss is Not an Exact Science
As you can see, not only does weight loss include other things besides fat-tissue, the actual speed of weight reduction is determined by a variety of individual factors.

So it's difficult, if not impossible, to give a precise answer to the question "how fast can I lose weight?" However, as a rough guide, here are some basic guidelines for maximum weight loss.

Why You Can't Lose More Weight?
The human body is not designed to shed weight. It is designed to survive! Our basic body chemistry endures from prehistoric

times, when famine, rather than obesity, was the biggest threat. This is why it won't lose excessive amounts of fat in a

short period of time. In fact, if you drastically reduce your calorie-intake, your brain takes active steps to slow down your

metabolism, in order to conserve calories. This is one reason why we encounter a weight loss plateau.
