Our body is designed to regain its original state after a mental or physical distress, including the intentional diet plan. Obviously, people who have gone on a diet for more than a month would lose some amount of weight. However, when they stop the diet, it is possible for our body to put the original weight back and in many cases with a little extra. This setback will encourage us to go on to start a new diet plan and eventually, we will gain more weight than when it all started. There are reasons why diet doesn’t work and may even cause people to get overweight. Diet is actually a type of calorie restriction program and this could leave people quite hungry for some time. From evolutionary biology perspective, hunger is designed to be quite unpleasant. This basic physical and mental response is something that many diet experts ignore. Disregarding hunger may lead to the failure of our diet plan. Many people spend a lot of money for various diet plans, but they are still feeling miserable by the hardship. Hunger could also affect us socially and because people often eat when they gather, we may try to intentionally avoid them.
When people can’t reach their goals, they will end up fatter, weaker and more miserable. This problem is compounded by the fact that they lose much of their social interactions and people who adopt long-term diet plan could already lose much of their social network. This all seem quite set, because a few people could become richer by misleading millions of well-intentioned dieters. In general, we should burn more than what we eat. Unfortunately, it also means that we will get hungry and it should be acceptable as a natural, predictable response. So, what we should do to deal with hunger? Diet is all about achieving negative calorie balance and it all comes down to consuming fewer calories than we expend. One difficulty arises when we start dieting and we are likely to feel hungry. This could cause to be less active than before. In fact, hunger could cause us to sleep more or watch TV all day. However, it is probably better to do this for a while to let our body better adapt to fewer calories intake. For many people, exercising while dieting can feel like a torture and this allows us to achieve rapid weight loss in the end. We can’t help it.
Eventually, our body won’t original its original state and we won’t end up getting fatter after undergoing diet plan. After we have got used to the reduced calories intake, we should try to perform our daily activities. If possible, we can do at least a bit of exercise to accelerate the rate of weight loss. If we can’t do this, at least, we should try to do what we can. Although our body is weakened by hunger, it is important to keep our mind as active as it can be. This will encourage us to do more things and it is less likely for us to sit still all day.
