Just because weight loss is a good thing doesn’t mean it is stress-free for bodies. Actually, there is a natural resistance both to weight loss, and weight gain because of this principle. Because of this natural, biological resistance to change, adaptive weight loss must be gradual. It is the abruptness, the fast-forced weight loss of traditional diets that s this biological principle and set dieters up for rebound. Bodies adapt slowly if the change is to last.
You will notice that the suggestions for speeding it up are basically the same for recovery in general. There are some adjustments anyone who is stuck can make to get their body moving toward weight loss. These speed-it-up techniques should be applied carefully, paying close attention to signs of the feast or famine cycle. If the cycle gets started as a result of trying to move things along faster, you may be pushing your body along too hard, so back off and go more slowly.

1. Improve the quality of your food supply. Increase vegetables and fruits and whole grains. Learn to juice foods you love if you are interested. Make sure you’re getting enough high quality protein foods and complex carbohydrates. Stay in touch with your body. If you want a huge bunch of grapes, do it!
2. Drink water between meals and snacks. Often, hunger signals are thirst signals, too. Drink something when you first feel hungry. Sometimes, a drink satisfies hunger for a while which means you were probably thirsty. Research has shown that the vast majority of people do not drink enough water and water is a necessary element in burning fat.
3. Limit meals away from home to one or two a week. Your food quality may be taking a significant dip nearly every time you walk into a restaurant. Even if you order well and you’re not too hungry, it’s very hard to keep the food very high quality. Research the best places to get good food when you do go out.
4. Get 30 to 45 minutes of some type of exercise every day possible. Get 7 or 8 hours of sleep every day. Make these top priorities.
5. Attack old mindless habits. Used to finishing your food? Used to always taking the last bite? Used to two pieces of toast with your eggs? Get over it.
6. Fine-tune your unique body signals. Thirsty? Tired? Stiff neck? Need a stretch. Need a nap?
Get to know all your body’s signals intimately and take good care of it.
7. Back off on your portions. Once off the cycle, you are safe to consciously eat less food. You may find you need to eat more often, but maybe not. Take each situation as a separate experience. If you start to have cycle symptoms, ease up a little and try again in a week or two.
Does this look like a diet to you? It does to some people because of the suggestion to focus on some types of food, consciously eat less at times and exercise every day possible. Well, permanent weight loss is not magic. Bodies must be provoked into letting go of fat, one way or another. We know all about the diet way, forcing the fat off. But this way, enabling your body to use up fat because it doesn’t need it any more takes just as much, perhaps more, effort. It certainly takes more time and that’s why it doesn’t backfire.
The part of recovery that will never even remotely resemble a diet is the prescription to eat all the high quality food you need to satisfy hunger as you break the feast or famine cycle. And only then, to carefully limit portions as your body tolerates it. Other programs suggest improving quality, but none suggest, much less require, that hunger be consistently satisfied, especially strictly at the beginning. This is the bedrock of this program. Without the consistent satisfaction of hunger to stop the war with your body, any program will lead back to the feast or famine cycle.
