Eat More to Lose Weight : Stay Fit and Healthy

Eat More to Lose Weight

by Carole Phillips on 07/11/10

Diet can have a large impact on your metabolism, but only if you keep eating.  Cutting back the amount of food you eat with a fad diet or skipping meals can send your body into fat-storing starvation mode, slowing down your metabolism and hindering your attempts for lasting weight loss.

To keep your metabolic rate up, you should:

  • Eat breakfast, which gives your body an early energy boost and deters it from fat storage.
  • Eat many small meals and snacks throughout the day to keep our metabolism busy burning fuel all day long.
  • Increase the amount of lean protein you eat.  Your body burns more calories when it is digesting proteins, compared with carbs or fats.
