Why You Don’t Just Lose Fat When You’re on a Diet

 You lose muscle mass in addition to fat when you diet. Not only can this affect your strength and fitness levels, but it can also slow down your metabolism. 

 A calorie deficit is necessary for weight loss (also known as body fat loss).  

 To achieve this goal, you need to either exercise more to burn more calories than you take in, or eat less overall.  

 The body uses its limited supply of glycogen for energy during the initial days of a calorie deficit.  

 Carbohydrates provide your body with glucose, sometimes known as sugar, in the form of a string called glycogen.  

 The body stores whatever glucose it doesn't utilize right away because carbohydrates are its primary source of energy.  

 However, because carbohydrates and water interact, the accumulation of glycogen in muscle tissue also involves the storage of water.   

 The body also releases a lot of water as it uses up these glycogen stores.
