Losing weight is never easy. Even if you only want to drop a few pounds, it seems like the number on the scale remains the same, no matter what you do. As such, it's not uncommon to restrict calories to the extent that you feel like you're starving. 

But the fact of the matter is, even if you do lose the extra weight, slashing your calories too much can have a negative effect both physically and mentally.

If you are trying to lose weight and think that a starvation diet is the only way to reach your goals, you may want to read on. Here's everything you need to know about too restrictive dieting and what it really does to your metabolism.

It Could Potentially Reduce Fertility

If you are trying to lose weight and think that a starvation diet is the only way to reach your goals, you may want to read on. Here's everything you need to know about too restrictive dieting and what it really does to your metabolism.

One of the most damaging risks of restricting calories is how it affects fertility. Without consuming the proper amount of calories, the estrogen levels are significantly reduced. 

According to the National Center of BioTechnology Information, women who eat up to 42 percent less than their usual calorie intake can experience a suppression in their reproductive system.

There are various signs of low fertility including abnormal menstrual periods or not having any for long periods of time. In some cases, however, symptoms may not present themselves, which warrants a visit to the doctor. 

It’s also worth pointing out that men can also experience problems with fertility if their calorie intake isn’t sufficient. Nutrition coaching for busy moms is one of the best ways create a fitness plan that fits your lifestyle. 

Your Bones Become Significantly Weaker

When taking care of the health of your bones, the first thing we think about is calcium. And while this is true, calcium isn’t the only thing keeping your bones in good shape. 

Calories also play a vital role when it comes to your bone health. If you restrict too many calories, both the testosterone and estrogen levels start to tank. These hormones are considered to cause your bones to breakdown.

In worst case scenario, a poor calorie intake can even lead to bone loss. Bone loss is an irreversible condition and greatly increases the risk of various issues. Health coaching for moms can shed light on exactly how much calcium you need while dieting.

Thank You Vilmos!

When I decided to improve my health I reach out to Vilmos, to be honest, I was a little skeptical. I lost weight in the past using weight watchers a few times, and I was curious about his approach. However, it turns out the investment was worth it because I lost over forty pounds in six months, but this time I’m confident I can keep it off. I learned so much about myself in the last 6 months. I even saw improvement in other areas of my life.

Full of energy and loving it.

THANK YOU, Vilmos!!! Your program improved my habits and my body, and I continue to improve my habits every day. I can’t thank Vilmos enough for caring, understanding, and holding me accountable to make sure I stay on the path to success.

I tried a few diets in the past that lead to frustration and stress — I lost some weight but I became emotional like anyone really needs that. I was referred to Vilmos, and after our discovery meeting, everything clicked. I’m really enjoying the supplements Vilmos created for me.

Vilmos saved my life. For over 20 years i suffered with fibromyalgia that lead me to medication. 20 years after taking my first medication for the fibromyalgia, I end up 20 years later on a total of 8 medication for allergies, ulcer, blood-pressure and a lot of nutrition deficiency’s plus 30 pounds. My blood work from my doctor only got worst after trying different weight loss program and counting calories. After talking with Vilmos I realize he was the right person to help me. For him it was consistency, not a quick fix, which was hard for me because i’m not great with change. After focusing on my ulcer the first 3 days I can tell the difference, I was sold. Six months later my doctor took me off of 5 medication because my blood work was that good and I loss 25 lbs and that is hard for someone that’s about to hit 70 years old. Today i’m taking my custom cocktail supplement Vilmos had created for me to address my vitamins deficiency, trim tea to help with weight loss and ultimate aloe for my digestive system. Today I’m eating healthier and have a lot of energy, so I can’t help but refer people to him, he is great at what he does. Thank you Vilmos, I am you’re number one fan!

I've been searching for awhile for supplements that would help me reach my goal! Things have to really impress me for me give a review but this works so it's easy to do! Vilmos and his team are Bert knowledgeable and the products have really helped me and now my wife! I was the Ginny pig lol!

I discussed my health concerns and goals with Vilmos. I wanted improvement in joint health, good overall circulation, and hopefully to lose a few pounds. At his recommendation, I began the MultiVitamin, and later added Isotonix OPC-3 , and Bromelain Plus. Vilmos is very knowledgeable, and I appreciate that he explains in detail what is in the supplement and how it targets the problem. I believe these products are helping to eliminate my inflammation, improving my joint function; and I definitely plan to continue this program.

I love taking the Daily essentials pack, it was recommended by Vilmos because I was having issues with being tired a lot and feeling low with energy. Since I have been taking it i feel like my rest is actually making a difference. I do not feel tired all day any more It has helped me in ways I can't even describe. Love love it....
