Healthy Living: The Eat Less, Move More Myth

2/3/2021

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, explains that losing weight is a far more complex nutritionally than the simple bromide suggests.

brought to you by PHD

Thanks for watching this

edition of Healthy Living.

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
