Cutting back on what you eat and getting more exercise to lose weight doesn't necessarily work. Dr. Ashley Lucas, founder of PHD Weight Loss and Nutrition, explains that losing weight is a far more complex nutritionally than the simple bromide suggests.

brought to you by PHD

Weight Loss and Nutrition.

3

00:00:08,380 --> 00:00:10,770

Thanks for watching this

edition of Healthy Living.

4

00:00:10,770 --> 00:00:12,430

I'm Deborah Uroda.

5

00:00:12,430 --> 00:00:14,120

We've invited Dr. Ashley Lucas,

6

00:00:14,120 --> 00:00:16,340

founder of PHD Weight Loss and Nutrition

7

00:00:16,340 --> 00:00:18,960

to bust a few misconceptions

and common myths

8

00:00:18,960 --> 00:00:21,490

about what it takes to

not only lose weight

9

00:00:21,490 --> 00:00:23,210

but to keep it off.

10

00:00:23,210 --> 00:00:25,590

Dr. Lucas, we've all heard

that you should eat less

11

00:00:25,590 --> 00:00:27,040

and move more to lose weight.

12

00:00:27,040 --> 00:00:28,600

Is there any truth to that?

13

00:00:28,600 --> 00:00:32,230

We have been inundated

with messages telling us

14

00:00:32,230 --> 00:00:35,710

to eat less and move more to drop weight.

15

00:00:35,710 --> 00:00:37,520

When we look at the literature,

16

00:00:37,520 --> 00:00:40,080

we now know that severely

restricting calories

17

00:00:40,080 --> 00:00:42,850

is not the answer to

sustainable weight loss.

18

00:00:42,850 --> 00:00:44,700

When we severely restrict calories,

19

00:00:44,700 --> 00:00:46,950

we actually deplete our metabolism

20

00:00:46,950 --> 00:00:50,960

and our metabolism can drop

by about 800 calories a day

21

00:00:50,960 --> 00:00:52,630

and not improve.

22

00:00:52,630 --> 00:00:55,420

So it's really important

to understand what you need

23

00:00:55,420 --> 00:00:58,900

from a nutrition component

to support a speedy

24

00:00:58,900 --> 00:01:01,440

and more fast and efficient metabolism.

25

00:01:01,440 --> 00:01:04,870

The answer is not to severely

restrict your calories.

26

00:01:04,870 --> 00:01:06,070

The answer is to figure out

27

00:01:06,070 --> 00:01:07,910

what your unique body needs

28

00:01:07,910 --> 00:01:11,920

to operate at its full

capacity and peak performance.

29

00:01:11,920 --> 00:01:14,210
