There is a diet that has been around for quite a long time. It is the 1000 calorie diet. This diet can help you jump start your weight loss.
As well as helping you to get some relatively quick weight loss results, the 1000 calorie diet also has some draw backs besides making you hungry enough to eat a shoe. This diet should only be used, and is really only effective, for one week at a time.
After one week of being on the 1000 calorie diet, if one is used to more calories per day, matabolism seems to slow down due to your body thinking it’s starving and starts conserving fat.
Remaining on the 1000 calorie diet for more than one week at a time is counterproductive to your metabolic system and could be harmful, so using it for only one week at a time is sugested. In the 7 days of being on the 1000 calorie diet most people will lose between 3-5 pounds.
To get your metabolism moving again following this diet, try increasing your calorie intake or following a not so severe diet. As well, don’t forget that any diet works better with an exercise program….. assuming you have any energy left after breathing on so few calories.
The 1000 calorie diet is a very low caloric intake per day and if you are considering going on this diet make sure that it is safe for you.
