The process of dieting can be hard on our bodies. When we diet, our metabolisms adapt to our reduced calorie intake. We end up burning less calories per day (mostly due to our lower body weights), our fat loss slows and eventually we will hit a fat loss plateau. In an attempt to preserve fat stores, our bodies lower testosterone, thyroid hormone, and leptin, while increasing cortisol and ghrelin (hunger hormone). When we diet for extended periods of time, these adaptations become worse. . In addition to a halt in our fat loss, we can also suffer from fatigue, extreme hunger, poor sleep, crappy training performance and irritability. Sound familiar? . This was me. In the photo on the left I had essentially been dieting for years. I constantly felt weak, hungry and at the I found it almost impossible to continue to lose any fat (not that I had much left to lose)! . I had enough 😭😫 . I finally decided it was time to reverse diet and fix my metabolism. I slowly increased my calories to above maintenance level over a period of about 6 months. In the process, I got my energy back, stopped the constant urge to binge and built more lean muscle and my metabolic capacity as a result. . If you find yourself constantly dieting and not getting anywhere - reverse dieting might just be what you need. .

Guten Morgen liebe #fitfamily ✌️ Es ist Freitag, das heißt das Wochenende steht vor der Tür 🤗 Habt ihr schon Pläne? Ich will euch heute mal meine derzeit beliebtesten Produkte von @rockanutrition vorstellen. ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️ Smart Essential(Foto 1): Das neueste Produkt aus dem Hause #teamrocka und eins was sofort durch die Decke ging.(wie alles eig) Geschmacklich Bombe, schön fruchtig 👍👍👍 Wirkung sind jetzt kurzfristig keine zu spüren weil es sich um ein Produkt handelt, was viele wichtige Mineralstoffe und Vitamine enthält und die Einnahme, der vielen Tabletten und Kapseln die man täglich zuführt, erleichtert‼️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Bake & Cook (Foto 2): Super Werte für ein Whey Konzentrat und dadurch daß es neutral im Geschmack ist, kann ich es mit #smacktastic individuell gestalten. Auch perfekt für Poriddge oder eben zum Backen 😁✌️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Play Hard Rocka Apple(Foto 3): Geschmacklich ist es eine absolute Granate mit der bereits bekanntlichen Wirkung von play hard. Schmeckt wie die grünen Centerschocks mit Apfel Geschmack. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Zusätzlich neu sind noch die EAA's die ebenfalls geschmacklich sehr gut sind 👌 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Die Soßen sind für die Diät eine sehr gute alternative weil die Werte echt gut sind. Mir sind sie allerdings etwas zu süß geraten. ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️ So Leute das waren sie erstmal, meine Top 3. Ich wünsche euch noch einen wunderschönen Tag und kommt gut ins Wochenende ✌️ ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Für studienbasiertes Wissen, Motivation, leckere Rezepte oder einfach nur Unterhaltung checkt folgende Profile ab: @janmerkl @die_quanten_athleten @wolverine96 @thorn2hulk @saiyajintim @sebastianhotz @prince_of_gainz ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #fitnessmen #fitlifestyle #yummy #foodporno #fitnessfoods #foodgasm #fitnessaddicts #foodstagrams #healthyfoodie #fitnessjourney #healthy #fitfoods #cleaneats #proteins #nutritions #fitsporation #flexibledieting #iifym #leanbulk #shredding #fitnesslifestyle #ilpt #rockanutrition #abgerechnetwirdamstrand #absaremadeinthekitchen #ketchupgang #eisgang

Some people selfie when they feel pretty, or accomplished, or confident and that’s awesome. I am pro selfie. 🤳 But I was feeling none if those things today! So here’s my “screw it, I’m just proud of myself for making it outta the house with pants on selfie.” And that’s awesome too. 🤷🏻‍♀️ #realtalk + + #owned 💍✈️ #pilotwifelife • • • • • #korean #pilotlife #aviation #momlife #motherhood #mommyblogger #momsofinstagram #fitmom #momswholift #flexibledieting #flexfriday #fatloss #fitbit #virgo #bodybuilding #ifbb #figurecompetitor #bikini #mealprep #ufcgym #travel #beauty #style #anytimefitness #bootybuilding #hawaii #womenempowerment
