Oh hey how’s it going Oh dope don’t put your fries down Academy I see you finished your diet and now you’re ready to enjoy yourself by burying your face a bucket full of fries dance state the nearly two billion years ago expansion started weight began to cool the autotrophs began to drool Neanderthals developed tools Sciences starting with the.
That we have your attention we can continue the lesson I don’t actually think you’re a fat but a lot of people screw up their diet.
At the end of their diet one of the main things we’ve talked about is not only losing weight but keeping it off and keep in mind that if you don’t maintain the same types of behaviors that allowed you to lose the weight you will not maintain that weight loss now I understand that you may not want to be on a diet or in caloric restriction for the rest of your life completely understandable nobody wants to do that you’re.
Doomed to fail so with that said let’s get into it so one of the biggest problems with people.
Who go on diets and then end up regaining weight is they don’t think about the.
Diet after the diet they just think about okay diets over now I’m done well if you go back to eating the same way with the same type of behaviors that you.

You felt physically full but still felt compelled to eat and still felt hungry that was certainly the.
Case for me but when I felt physically full I stopped eating this initial transition phase which is right after the diet ends to the firt even the first few days or weeks after you’ve finished your diet and are transitioning into maintenance or reverse dieting is very crucial because remember you have created this perfect hormonal millou to not only regain fat but create new fat cells if you’re not careful so.
We want to avoid that as much as humanly possible it’s okay to regain some weight that’s okay what we want.
