Also, it was very important to fluctuate the calorie intake to the body does not adapt and adjust the BMR to the new calorie intake. As a result, I have gained back 10 kgs I lost.
A few things I discovered along the way were:
- Low fat does not mean low calorie (you find a lot of low fat food filled with sugar - so high in calories).
- It is possible to continue to enjoy your food by swapping with lower calorie equivalent (which taste almost as good).
- We are consuming a lot more calories than we actually need.
