Category #1: Eat less calories, but burn the same amount of energy.
In any given day, you are already burning calories. That’s right! Just by simply reading this book, you are burning calories. In fact, when you wake up and you breathe and digest food throughout the day as well as pump blood, you are burning calories.
The bottom line is if your body does anything at all, it requires energy. In other words, it’s burning calories. This is called your passive calorie burn rate. If you were to eat less calories than the amount of energy your body needs to function every single day, your body is forced to look at your stored energy.
In other words, it starts eating your fat and, eventually, your muscle tissues. That’s how it works. Your body has to get enough energy somehow to be able to do what it needs to do on a day to day basis. When there is a deficit between the amount of calories you eat and the amount of energy you burn, your body starts to burn up fat.
Before you know it, you start weighing less and you start looking better and better.
