Weight Loss And Slimming Program

When you begin a slimming diet in the first week or two, you will lose several kilogram of weight. This is coming from the fluid you lose not the fat. Subsequently, weight loss will be mostly fat.

The other reason is that the when you lose weight, your metabolic rate is gradually slowing down because you are getting smaller in size. The slimmer a body is, the less work it has to do. So the lower metabolic rate a body has, the lower its calaries needs.

So after a while on a slimming program, the same diet could not give you the calorie deficit you need to achieve your weight loss target. For weight loss to continue at a steady rate, you need to gradually cut the calorie content of the diet and increase your exercise level accordingly.
