Lose 20 Pounds in a Week…Or Better Yet, DON’T!

October 24, 2012

Writing this column for ThePostGame that was on Yahoo’s front page was quite an experience.

My initial focus was to explain how to lose weight quickly. If you need to drop weight for an event, there are 6 tips on the smartest and most effective way to do so.

The more I researched, the more I learned what a horrible idea it is. Beyond the immediate perils of amphetamines, there is so much evidence that starvation diets make it HARDER to lose weight in the long run. I’ve always know that Yo-Yo dieting is a bad idea but now I know why.

It slows your metabolism, decreases muscle mass and messes up your hormones. The column gives you more detailed information and cites clinical research and experts in the field.

Please share your experiences with me.
