Some people with food and weight related problems resort to rigorous exercise in response to circumstances such as:
▶ Overeating or bingeing
▶ Feeling Fat During a restricted diet
▶ When they are emotionally upset
▶ Prevention from eating
▶ Trying to lose weight quickly
▶ Attempts at spot reduction
It is highly likely that a person with food and weight related problems will be undernourished. If demands are then made on their body through exercise, especially excessive exercise, then it is similar to expecting a car to continually run without enough fuel in the tank. The body cannot cope and it will compensate and find a way to protest. One of the main things that it does is slow down the rate at which calories burn (metabolic rate), ironically the opposite of what the person is trying to achieve through exercise. There are many other detrimental effects and something which was hoped would be a solution becomes another problem. MotivEat can help you learn how to judge the correct level of exercise for you.
