The amount of calories that you consume on a daily basis will determine whether you gain or lose weight and this is one of the most important aspects of any weight loss program that you decide to go on.

Studies have been taken where overweight people believed they were eating no more food than other people they associated with who were considerably slimmer than them.

The overweight people were under the false impression that the reason why they were heavier and gaining weight was due to their body’s.

Go Wild: Breaking Fat Burning Rules

When you want to lose weight, there might be a number of rules you will want to follow in order to shed the pounds as quickly as possible.

That said some rules just do not work!

No matter how great they sound or how many experts can show you the results following these rules will bring you, there are a number that can be easily broken. Mind you, not always but at least sometimes.

Knowing which fat burning rules to break will give you better chance of losing the weight you would like to lose and keep it off.

1. Using certain items to “motivate” you will sometimes simply not work!

Having a size 2 pair of jeans in your closet might seem like a good way to motivate yourself towards your weight loss goals. However, let us face it for most people this is just depressing and frustrating.  Especially, if you currently wearing size 10 clothes.

The better way is to get rid of anything that does not fit.  Next step is to stop weighing yourself every day.   If you are exercising, as you should, you are building muscles.   Muscles weigh much more than fat, therefore the scale may become your enemy and might trip you to give up your weight loss journey.

2. Cut out all your love (junk) food in your life.

If you have bad eating habits, cutting out these habits, is a sure way to fall right back into them.  When the cravings kick in, you will simply be too frustrated to continue with any fat burning diet.

Instead, break this rule.  Cut back on your calories and watch what you eat, but allow yourself to have sweets and other bad food a few times a week, gradually continuing to cut back until you don’t need those foods any longer.

3. Cutting out one food group or another in general.

You need proteins, even if you are a vegetarian.  You need carbohydrates, even if you do go on the Atkins diet.  You even need fats, even if you are overweight.

All the nutrients in your body have to work together on a daily basis to regulate your body’s function, and cutting out completely one link to that chain will ruin your entire health.  Instead, learn which foods to eat in moderation and follow that rule instead.

You are in control of your life. Question weight loss rules that you come across.  It is far better to do that than to follow rules that you will entice you to break them. We are all unique human beings. One rule may work for you but not for me.  The secret is to find fat burning diets that will allow you to be what you are and at the same time guide you to a healthy new lifestyle change.
