Weight Loss Tip: Eat Enough Food

Don’t under eat – many weight loss programs cut calories too much.

Have a test done to determine your basal or resting metabolic rate- then make sure that your low calorie diet doesn’t go below this number. This can either be a bioimpedance analysis or a resting energy expenditure test because this is the bare minimum amount that your body needs to support basic functions. If neither of those tests is available to you, search for internet sites that estimate basal metabolic rate according to height, weight, age and gender.

The bioimpedance analysis measures lean body mass and fat mass – a basal metabolic rate is determined by the pounds of metabolically active tissue you have.

A resting energy expenditure test is done to measure the oxygen utilized and carbon dioxide produced during a sample time frame when you are at rest.
