Default Re: yo-yoing = slow metabolism

Check out the 13 wk hardcore fat burning article , it gives 3 methods for determining your caloric intake. I would average the results of all three to give you a ballpark idea of what your calorie intake should be. Then, what you do, is SLOWLY increase them to that number. Add like 100 cals every other day til you get to where you should be. And be sure you are eating every 2-3 hours, meals balanced with protein, carbs, and fat or AT LEAST with protein and fat if you prefer not to have any carbs at night. Green veggies for carbs at night are fine though. Also, rule of thumb is to get at least your bodyweight in protein, divided up EQUALLY into each of your meals. If you are not currrently consuming enough protein then slowly increase that as well. Hope this helps. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
