Eat enough calories!
One of the biggest mistakes people make when they want to lose weight is cut their calories too drastically. If a person consumes too little food during the day or eats all their calories in 1-2 meals, they are basically shutting down their metabolism. It is recommended that women never fall below 1200 calories a day and men 1500 calories a day. (Of course, the number of calories you need individually is based on several things, such as activity level, goals, etc.) If you want to read a testimonial of a woman who started eating enough calories and how it transformed her life and her figure, go to: http://www.mnpersonaltraining.com/about-us/testimonials/
