EAT YOUR CALO­RIES. DON’T DRINK THEM!

Australian Natural Bodz - - Nutrition Knowledge Centre -

The diet band wagon con­tin­ues to roll into town de­liv­er­ing low calo­rie liq­uid di­ets that are to­tally un­sus­tain­able long term. Some of these low cal liq­uid dis­as­ter zones have barely enough calo­ries to fuel a cat or dog. The mar­keters of these plans are tar­get­ting the lazy folk who wish to lose weight yes­ter­day and do not have the dis­ci­pline to make per­ma­nent life­style changes. Un­for­tu­nately the weight lost is made up of mainly wa­ter weight and more than likely lean mus­cle tis­sue from lack of solid pro­tein foods that the body needs to main­tain it­self. An­other point that needs to be clar­i­fied is liq­uid has no ther­mo­genic value, mean­ing your body does not ex­pend any en­ergy to me­tab­o­lize it. Where as solid foods es­pe­cially pro­tein and veg­eta­bles re­quire a fair amount of en­ergy and there for have a high ther­mo­genic value. The di­ges­tion process is part of your (RMR) rest­ing meta­bolic rate where 70% of your daily calo­ries are burned. Take home mes­sage, take the time to PRE­PARE and EAT solid meals in­stead of tak­ing the easy way out with liq­uid meal re­place­ments. You will feel fuller for it and re­veal a leaner more ath­letic physique!
