Question:  Why does your body hold onto fat?

Your body holds onto fat because you have programmed it to do so.  

For one your body doesn't like changes, it doesn't like stress and it doesn't want to be in fear of anything.

So one way to protect itself regarding survival is making sure it has plenty of caloric resources to feed off of when it needs it.  

You may be encouraging this survival mechanism by eating erratically or skipping meals.  

Once you do this your body knows to try and store every calorie it can for a later time.  So guess what happens when you decide to indulge a little and eat that large pasta dinner followed by an ice cream sundae.

Yep, you got it!

Your body attempts to store most of those calories as fat so that it can be used the next time you eat erratically or you decide to skip a meal.

It is now time to break that cycle and the easiest way to do this is by making sure you eat consistently every few hours.  This equates out to about 4-5 times a day for most people.

The next most important thing you can do is eat at least some lean protein at every feeding opportunity and avoid the refined sugars and starches.  This means plenty of high fiber vegetables, fruit and whole grain starches.  

An easy way to make this happen is to divide your plate into 4 sections.  Two of those sections will be lean protein choices.  One section will be a high fiber vegetable or fruit and the fourth section will be a whole grain starch.

It is that simple to break your body of its habit to hold onto fat.
