Can Under-Eating Lead to Weight Gain?

Can Under-Eating Lead to Weight Gain?

In the last 6 years of training, I have come across a very important topic that I feel should be addressed. There is a common misconception that eating less food will lead to faster weight loss. Yes, eating less often times is a solution, but the question is how much is "less"? I have worked with countless clients who are confused about their continuous weight gain despite the fact they eat so little, and I am hoping this removes some of that confusion. It is first important to understand the symptoms of under-eating. The following are symptoms of not eating enough food:

- Intense Hunger
- Cold all the time
- A decrease in Fat Metabolism (Weight Gain)
- Mood fluctuation
- Insomnia
- Muscle Loss

The body needs nutrition for energy and maintaining the biological functions of the body. Food is also detrimental towards maintaining healthy hormone levels, without these hormones, weight loss and muscle gain will feel impossible. In summary, one must eat enough calories to not gain weight, and enough calories to not become malnourished. In this window does your bodies health flourish!

Hope this helps, stay healthy friends!
