Reverse dieting is a method used to slowly increase calories to repair your metabolism, allow
you to eat more post dieting to maintain your lean physique, and in some cases it helps you
become leaner. It is a MUST for many!
So, who should do it?
If you’ve been yo-yo dieting, or dieting on and off, for a period of time you should definitely do this! Your metabolism has adapted to a low amount of calories, and in order to progress in fat loss calorie intake must increase.
Your weight and body fat loss has stalled. This means it’s probably time to take a closer look at your metabolism.
If you have dieted down to a body fat percentage you are comfortable and happy in, this is the next step in order to allow yourself to eat more. Sometimes, it takes a lower amount of calories to get lean, but you shouldn’t stay at that calorie intake for the rest of your life.
If you’re ready to build more muscle and/or just want to be able to eat more! Remember, to build muscle or “tone up” (as women like to say) you need to be eating and fueling your body with the proper calorie intake and proper amount of macronutrients.
- Help your metabolism increase for easier fat loss in the future
- More energy in the gym and in life!
- More flexibility and allows you to “live a little” more without restraints a diet may have
- Allows you to focus on more than just dieting
- Improved performance and strength
I have always chased dieting, ever since I could remember. I always was thinking about a fat
loss phase or was in one. I never took the time to properly work on my metabolism. I started
slowly increasing my calorie intake, and now I am a lower weight than I have been in a long time
(this won’t happen for everybody, remember every person is in a unique situation). I have so
much more energy in the gym, and have been able to increase weight again on compound lifts.
I no longer feel lethargic, tired, and exhausted. I’m so excited to see where a few more months
will get me!
