How to prevent gaining back the weight after you’ve lost it

whole-30When you lose 100 pounds, then gain back 110 pounds, the body has been programmed to return to its former weight, once the old eating habits return. Your goal is to re-set the body. You don’t do this by depriving it of calories, but, by proper nourishment. This means, resetting your hormones, and molding your metabolism. There are 8 simple ways to accomplish this.

1. Cut down on starches and cut out refined sugars from your diet.

Don’t eat white potatoes, unless cooked and cooled. This turns into a starch that works against the body. Cut out bread, cakes, sweets, donuts, and candies, with a few exceptions. Limit fruit to 3 servings a day. Stay away from other sugars and starches. This will change your insulin metabolism.
