How weight loss works and what we do

The science behind weight loss

     When attempting to lose weight you must first be in a caloric deficit.  Meaning you must burn more calories than you are consuming.  You can perform weight lifting exercises, which are essential for muscular strength, as well as the strengthening of your bones, ligaments, and tendons as well.  You can do cardio which is excellent for your cardiovascular system- lungs,heart, etc.  The number one way to be on a caloric deficit, is to consume less foods which will put you on a CALORIC DEFICIT.    


     When you are on a caloric deficit the body will easily drop the weight as your body is no longer consuming the same amount of calories that was required to maintain your current weight.  

By eating less, and without even exercising, your body will be FORCED to drop the weight.  The only problem with this is that you will be very hungry if you don't know exactly what you're doing.  In fact, if you don't know exactly what you're doing you could even slow the metabolism and not drop all that much weight as the body will go into "starvation mode."  


     Here at Divine Wellness and Nutrition we develop a nutrition program based on the foods YOU EAT.  This way you're not eating foods you don't like or are not familiar with.  We customize menus that will DRAMATICALLY force your body into weight loss without starving you so that your metabolism will stay high and not drop; also thereby giving you more energy and NOT feeling fatigued as is usually a huge problem for people when going on a "diet."  


     The menus provided come with an ingredients list and the way to prepare your foods as well as the correct proportions so there is NO guesswork involved for you.  We literally guide you through everything in your weight loss journey.  We even MAKE SURE to educate you EVERY step of the way so that you know why you're doing something and how it is done so that you will then be on your own and know EXACTLY what to do in order for you to continue your weight loss by yourself when you feel comfortable and you have a sound understanding of the science behind losing weight.


     Also, exercise is VERY IMPORTANT for the aforementioned reasons stated, but it is NOT necessary for weight loss.  Also, if you choose to exercise this will allow you to eat even  more as you will be burning more calories- but again, for weight loss this is not absolutely necessary.
