Like long distance relationships, crash diets never work and in this video I explain WHY, check it out: Heres a great summary of the video: A common question I get is “I have a “insert important event like a wedding” coming up and I need to lose weight fast, what do I do?” I’ll tell them to eat a smart meal plan, work out intensely and be consistent and results will follow. However most people ignore that and just decide to crash diet anyways. And this is the problem. Crash Diets DON’T Work. But Why Don’t They? I mean if losing weight is all about eating fewer calories than you burn, why not just eat next to nothing? In other words, if its calorie in vs calorie out, why not eat next to nothing? Shouldn’t you lose a crazy amount of weight if you eat less than an anorexic supermodel? The answer is you won’t young grasshopper and heres why. Your body needs a certain amount of calories to function on a day to day basis. Lets say 1500 calories. As soon as you eat less than that, your body enters starvation mode. Starvation mode is when your body panics, spazzes out and starts storing all calories you eat.

    I’m petite and wanted to go on a 900-950 calorie diet to lose 1. 5 pounds a week. Being only 5’1′, it’s hard to lose for me. But I’m taking everything you said into consideration in this video. By losing a pound a week I should reach my goal by mid october. This is way better than losing the first 10 then stopping all together.

    So Omar, Help me out, I’m 14 years old 5″6 and 30lbs over weight, How many calories should I be taking in a day and burning after to have a decent weight loss. ( I fast walk on the treadmill on a 10 incline for 45-55mins if you’re wondering how I exercise)

    @MissObesityRehab I’ve been designing my own diets, and it’s included 2 crashes. Everything that I’ve heard about crashing (lower energy, increased fat storage, etc. ) didn’t happen to me. I added Consistent exercise, and I’ve lost 75 lbs. Check my channel to see what I looked like last summer, then check my facebook to see where I’m at. Crash diets don’t suck. I say shock your body, then build up good lifestyle habits.

  12. OmarIsuf says:

    @MissObesityRehab No, thats a bad idea :(

  13. MissObesityRehab says:

    Is it a crash diet if you do it consistenly for 5 months and the gradually build up your calorie-intake + exercise? Please reply I am really trying to find out if I’m killing off my muscles right now. I’ve been doing the Cambridge Diet for 44 days and I have been disciplined so far. . .

    @ButterflyVonTejas Great question, I’d say start of with a simple 1800 calorie a day diet 40% protein 40% fat 20% carbs, enough quality calories for the baby but also low enough to produce results :)

  15. ButterflyVonTejas says:

    Wow, Omar—-I’m pretty amazed with your energy.
    You really know your stuff, I’m writing down your 3 steps! Seems like a good start.

    I’m ready for a life change, not so much a weight loss game.
    so the embarrasing facts are. . .

    5ft 6inches 220lbs. Breastfeeding, Diabetic
