Only Go Below A Little What Your Body Needs

Often when dieters go on a diet, they eat as little as 1000 calories per day. This is really not a good idea because the weight you will lose is in form of muscle mass.

Instead you should only eat around 500 calories of what your body needs. And it is actually OK, if you eat the amount of calories your body needs and then go to the gym in order to burn calories there.

Go to The Gym
