Mila Kunis had to drop as much as 20 pounds of weight from her already low 115 lbs to act as a ballet dancer in the movie Black Swan and she said that it took her as many as five months. Yes, with very precise control on what to eat and dancing pretty much all day, she accomplished this, but she says that once the shooting for the film was over, she gained the weight back in mere five days.
The conclusion from this is that:
- It is always more difficult to lose weight.
- The lower our weight, the more difficult it is to lose it.
- As our weights go down, we burn fewer calories (we now need fewer calories just to go about our daily lives because the body has lower weight to carry around) and that means that just to maintain it, we need to workout even harder and eat less. Indeed, your overweight friends might tease you that you can eat anything you want and not workout, but the reality is that skinny people gain weight so much faster.
