To lose weight you have to do one of three things: eat less, move around more, or preferably both. If you do any of these, you will lose weight. How? It all boils down to achieving a net negative calorie state. When you eat less but maintain your normal activity levels, you have fewer calories coming into your system and your body will try to make up for those lost calories by burning up stored energy.
Animals, which include human beings, store energy in the form of fat and muscle. When you eat fewer calories, your body misses these calories. To be able to afford all its other energy expenditures it's going to compensate for these missing calories. It's going to start burning up fat and muscle.
Make no mistake about it, you're always burning calories. By simply listening to this book, you're burning calories. When you walk around and breathe, you're burning calories. In fact, even if you're lying down on your bed, you're still burning calories because your body is pumping blood and breaking down the food that you ate earlier. Do you see how this all works out?
Consider your body as a factory. If you're going to do anything with this factory by making any of its machinery work, you need energy. Your body requires energy in the form of calories.
If you do any of the three things I mentioned above, you will achieve a net negative calorie state which would force your body to burn up calories. The more fat your body burns up, the lighter you weigh. Similarly, your body would also burn muscle for these calories. It has to get those calories.
The other approach, which is the more common way to lose weight is to simply move around more. You're eating the same amount of food but you're moving around more.
