19. You can’t just keep cutting calories
I know what you might be thinking then. “I want results fast, so I’ll just cut calories drastically and get there quicker.”
After all, the math basically adds up. Right? Right?….
Wrong. Starving yourself with too few calories is a no-no, so don’t even think of trying to fast-track your diet by eating air. Unfortunately, it just doesn’t work that way.
By starving yourself, you can cause your body to turn catabolic, a state where your body essentially starts eating muscle instead of fat to maintain itself. That can then have all kinds of bad side effects on your body.
So, yeah, no starving.
