Don’t lose weight too fast

Drastic weight loss can affect your body’s metabolism and lean muscle mass. If you start shedding a lot of weight quickly, observe where the weight loss is coming from. Is it water weight, body fat or lean muscle tissue? In all likelihood, it unfortunately comes from lean muscle mass. This causes serious problems with your metabolism and immune system. Muscle is your body’s most potent and active tissue to burn calories and body fat. It is basically your body’s ‘furnace’ and you always have to keep it hot. When someone loses a lot of weight very fast – which usually comes from crash dieting or other unhealthy means – the body’s lean muscle mass is gobbled up and the person loses some of the most powerful tissue which helps to keep him or her lean. Be smart and do not make your efforts counter- productive.

Note: Losing about one pound of weight every week (about 1 kg every two weeks) is what many world champion bodybuilders recommend while getting ready for a show.

  1. Dear Sir,

    Please analyse-
    i gained from 66kg to 69 1/2 kg in 2 months before competition fell to 67 1/2 in 2 weeks after dieting decarbing then 65 in next 1 week and then 62 1/2 in the initial of last week of competition then in three days after carbing went to 65 1/2 on competition day.

    the variation is too erotic i find but my measuements remained same through out; only felt ripped. i got third

    my next state level competition is coming up in one month and i fear to diet again should i lose more weight.

    Please suggest

    Regards
