The Diets That Lead Us Here
Let’s face it; the word “diet” gives us the impression that it is

body’s natural thermostat. It regulates your weight. When you lose
weight after starting diet that severely restricts your caloric intake
your body goes into a defensive mode.
don’t be tempted to eliminate carbohydrates completely from
your daily eating plan.
