AEROBICS CAN MAKE YOU FAT!
When people find themselves becoming overweight, they generally start doing aerobics. Research shows that an hour of aerobics, if the calorie intake stays constant, causes weight loss. Sadly however, most of this weight loss is vital muscle5. Since body fat is burned almost exclusively by your muscles, they are the one thing you cannot afford to lose4.
LOW CALORIE DIETS CAN MAKE YOU FAT!
Studies also show that low calorie diets cause weight loss, but once again much of this is muscle tissue³. Research shows that crash weight-loss plans cause people to lose up to 90% of their weight from muscle, including from their vital organs4. Such plans include diets with too few calories and macro nutrients (protein, fat, carbohydrate), causing the body to use its own muscle for fuel4. When you lose muscle tissue in this way, your body composition becomes similar to that of an old person.
ARE YOU WORKING HARD TO GET OLDER?
Science shows us that any form of exercising or dieting that causes us to lose muscle is a serious step in the wrong direction. In fact, you are actually breaking down the firm body you hoped to produce. Indeed, to lose muscle is extremely damaging to your health, including your immune system and greatly accelerates the rate at which you age³. Due to misinformation you have speeded up the ageing process, in spite of all your sacrifice, willpower and hard work.
