Reverse Dieting: The What, the Why, and the How!

 Reverse Dieting- The What, the Why and the How!


What is reverse dieting?

It’s the opposite of what we think of when we think of the word diet. Dieting carries the connotation of restriction, eating less, fewer calories. So with reverse dieting we do the opposite. It’s gradually increasing calories in order to jumpstart your metabolism.

Why would you want to speed up your metabolism with reverse dieting? Its a long list, so here we go!

  • To lose weight
  • Improve body composition
  • Have more energy
  • Look forward to working out
  • Improve sleep quality
  • Better performance in the gym
  • Handle stress a little better

How do you start reverse dieting?

This is where a nutrition coach can help.  The coach looks at your current caloric intake and macronutrient breakdown along with your activity level to determine where to start. Then the calories are gradually increased.

Adding calories can be scary for some people, but the pictures below show some of our clients who have used reverse dieting to improve body composition, athletic performance, and overall well-being! The process of reverse dieting can vary from person to person and it takes patience and courage to counteract the disbelief that eating more can actually help you lose weight. Having a coach during this process is very helpful.

If you’ve been doing the same thing by eating less and exercising more, with no results, our coaches can help you reverse your diet
