Here's an absolutely stellar post from my bro-tacular comrade, @syattfitness. Most of y'all probably follow him already, but if not, you need to! Especially if you like coffee & Harry Potter jokes 🤓⚡️
-
Here's what he had to say for this post:
. . .
💥EATING OUT ON A DIET 'CHEAT SHEET'💥
-
🦄The thing about dieting and nutrition and fat loss and yada yada yada is...you can know every last bit of physiology. You can memorize every metabolic process. You can recite every nutrition fact and fallacy ever known.
-
🌮BUT! If you don't understand the psychology and emotion related to dieting...why people do it...what makes them anxious...how to reduce their anxiety, etc....you're missing the most important part.
-
🌵Take eating out, for example. The "easy" answer would be "track your calories and don't go over." But that's not always practical or doable. It's not "real life" and even though - physiologically - it's accurate. Mentally and emotionally it can really screw with people.
-
🥐Truth is, the "best" diet or workout or whatever isn't always the one that's most precise or scientific. The "best" diet is the one that allows you to make consistent progress without feeling overly restricted or stressed. Because consistency is more sustainable than rigidity. And 10 times out of 10 I'd rather have someone make "slower" progress on something they can do for the rest of their life, than "faster" progress they'll only be able to do for a week or a month before calling it quits.

✅PORTION SIZE FIX FOR WEIGHT LOSS - Almonds ✅

There's a bundle of reasons to eat nuts 🥜. They’re chockfull of nutrients, healthy fats, fiber, and just straight-up taste delicious! -
But nuts (lol… “but nuts”) do pose a problem for dieters — they’re incredibly calorie dense!
-
See, other whole foods like fruits 🍎 & veggies 🥒 don’t really pack a ton of calories per serving, which makes it difficult to eat too many and overconsume calories...
-
Nuts are a whole different story, though. For example, one serving of almonds (~23 pieces) has 164 calories. And as you can see, one serving isn’t whole lot. Usually, folks are grabbing 2-3x that amount and end up shoveling down 400-500+ calories for a “healthy snack”
-
Here’s Your Fix ✅: Almonds, and other nuts, are definitely healthy. And if you enjoy them, I encourage you to include them in your diet.
-
Just remember, “healthy fats” are still fats, and fat is very calorie dense (9 calories per gram). So if you have them, make sure you’re aware of how much you’re eating too 🐿👍

⏰ HOW LOSING WEIGHT IS LIKE WATCHING A CLOCK ⏰

If you’ve ever been in a situation where you’re bored or anxious, then you know what it’s like to feel as if time is standing still. But, when you’re intensely focused on a task. or just having fun, hours can pass in what seems like a blink of an eye.
-
The same is true with watching your body weight go down.
-
Far too often, folks watch their weight day to day and get discouraged when it doesn’t move fast enough (or move at all!)
-
But that's just the way it goes. Your body weight WILL fluctuate…
-
⬇️ Some weeks it’ll go down a few pounds
↔️ Some weeks it’ll stay the same
⬆️ Some weeks it’ll even go up
-
If all you do is sit around and watch the scale, you’ll only be setting yourself up for stress and disappointment… Which is why you should only be focused on things that YOU can control.
-
You can’t totally control daily and weekly changes in scale weight, but you CAN control how consistent you are with your diet and exercise plan.
-
Here’s my advice ✅: Focus on implementing weight loss strategies that you enjoy and can do consistently. Similar to time passing, the more you can get “lost” in the process, the easier (and seemingly faster) it'll be to see results.
-
... easier said than done. I know 😉

💥DID YOU OVEREAT? (how you think about it matters!)💥

I’m about to break some news to you…
-
You might not like hearing it, but you NEED to hear it if you want to have a long & happy relationship with fitness…
-
You’re going to screw up.
-
Sure, some folks struggle more than others. But every single person has moments when they lose control, overeat, get lazy, skip workouts, etc.
-
What makes it worse is most people assume they need to be perfect. That one slip up will somehow erase all the hours of hard work they put in…
-
Sounds a bit dark and depressing, doesn’t it? Don’t worry. There’s light at the end of this tunnel (and it’s not a wide open fluorescent-lit fridge at 2 am..)
-
Yes, you’re going to screw up… but it doesn’t matter.
-
The truth is that screwing up *every once in a while* will NOT ruin your progress. In the same way, being on-point with your diet & exercise *every once in a while* won’t help you lose fat either... -
What matters is what you do MOST of the time ✅, and if you can adopt a forgiving and forward-thinking mindset (like our friend in the bottom-right square), you’re going to make it so much easier to get back on track quickly and stay consistent with your plan.

😋TWO DELICIOUS FAT LOSS SNACKS😋

I’m a HUGE believer in fitness simplicity. Reason being, the fewer moving parts ⚙️ you have in your weight loss plan, the easier it’s going to be to stay consistent and enjoy the journey.
-
One of the ways I keep things simple diet-wise is by having a few easy & tasty fat loss snacks that satisfy these three requirements...
-
1️⃣ They’re delicious, but not too good to where controlling portion sizes becomes a problem 😉
2️⃣ They’re low in calories and/or high in protein
3️⃣ They’re incredibly easy to make and prepare
-
The two snacks in this post — light hot chocolate ☕️ & light string cheese 🐮 — are, hands down, two of my all-time favorites 🙌
-
I have to thank @syattfitness for turning me on… to the light hot chocolate. Does it taste as good as regular hot chocolate? Of course not. But for ~25 calories a packet, it’s pretty flippin' good and curbs my appetite surprisingly well.
-
Light string cheese has been a go-to for me since day numero uno☝️. It’s convenient, tasty, and has 7g (!!!) of protein per ~50-calorie stick 👍
-

💥TWO WAYS TO EASILY SPOT A FAT LOSS SCAM 💥

The interesting thing about the Fitness Industry is that it can be both incredibly helpful and good, but also dishonest and scammy...
~
To me it seems like, for every research-backed program or product, there are 100+ more that are total bullshit with the sole purpose of tricking you into spending your hard earned cash 💸👎
~
Unfortunately, there are always going to be shitty people creating shitty fat loss products and programs… However, YOU are the one who ultimately gets to decide what to trust and what to avoid.
~
And the good news is there are lots of ways spot fat loss scams…
~
One easy way to spot a fat loss scam is when someone or something promises a total body transformation in a short amount of time (usually ~30 days) ❌…
~
The Truth ✅: While you can certainly make some progress in 30 days, you won’t transform your entire body.
~
If you want to make real & lasting transformative change (both physically and mentally), you need to be ready to dedicate yourself for months and usually years of hard work.
~
Does that mean you have to be miserable for months and years? Of course not! Every successful dieter knows that long-term change comes down to implementing strategies and building habits that help you make small, consistency progress.
~
Another easy way to spot a fat loss scam is when a single product or supplement positions itself as the “solution” to all of your weight loss problems ❌…
~
The Truth ✅: there’s not a single supplement, tea, shake, machine, wrap, potion, or elixir that'll magically melt away fat from your body. The ONLY way you’re going to see lasting results is by… you guessed it, “implementing strategies and building habits that help you make small, consistent progress.” 😉

✅ Portion Size Fix: Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich ✅

A lot of people think that losing weight simply comes down to eating healthier foods. And they’re not exactly wrong either…
~
Think about it 🤔. Foods categorized as being “healthy” tend to be whole foods (🥗🍎🍖). In general, whole foods have a lot of volume, fiber, water, and protein – all of which make it easier to consume fewer calories.
~
So by eating more whole foods and fewer calorie-dense processed foods, it’s easy to naturally create a calorie deficit. At least in the beginning.
~
But just because healthy eating CAN create a calorie deficit, it doesn’t mean it always will…
~
There are a lot of foods that, despite being healthy, still contain a buttload of calories — some notable ones are nuts 🥜, nut butters 🍯, avocados 🥑, and healthy oils 🍾
~
Which brings me to today's post...
~
To most people, a Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwich is considered a healthy food (though, I’m sure there is someone to argue it’s not 😉). But, without portion control, it's not difficult for things to get a bit out of hand.
~
The PB & J on the left is an example of what I see a lot of struggling dieters eating. They’ll buy “whole wheat bread” and “All-Natural PB,” but neglect how much PB they’re actually using, or the fact that some whole wheat bread brands have 100+ calories per slice!
~
Here’s Your Fix ✅: I’m all for eating PB & J’s. But if you’re trying to lose weight, make sure you’re measuring how much peanut butter & jelly you’re actually using! Also, I’d try to find bread that has ~45-60 calories per slice. 100 calories per slice is just ridonkulous!

In Today's Fast Food Fix, we're taking a trip to everyone’s favorite Sunday Football hangout, Buffalo Wild Wings 🏈🐃
~
And I don't know about you, but every time I eat buffalo wings, I end up going through a similar sequence of events…
🍴🍗🌶 —> 😋 —> 😴 —> 😨 —> 💩🔥🚽
(don't act like it doesn't happen to you too!)
~
Considering 95% of the menu consists of deep-fried chicken and crappy beer, you wouldn't expect to have much of a chance at finding a weight loss friendly option.
~
And for the most part, that's true. The choices here ain't great.
~
Heck, most of the salads have a high-calorie price tag, too! The Mediterranean Chicken Salad, for example, is super sneaky since it has lots of "healthy" ingredients like grilled chicken, hummus, and pita bread...
~
Here’s Your Fix ✅: The best weight loss friendly meal, in my opinion, are the NAKED (hehe 🙈) Tenders w/ Buffalo Chips — which, surprisingly, have much fewer calories than regular fast food fries. Slap on a side salad 🥗 (you know, for dem #micronutrients!) and you're golden!
~
Maybe the best part about this fix? You don't have to be the diet hippie ordering a "salad" at a beer & wings joint 🥕🤓✌️

I absolutely love this post from @movingdietitian
~
What's awesome about this "Swap & Save" is that you still get the nutrition benefits of almonds ✅, you save calories (by including popcorn and using fewer almonds) ✅, and you end up with MORE food volume ✅
~
Here's what she had to say:
. . .
While nuts are VERY good for us, they're also calorie dense

Swapping a large handful of approx 30 almonds with 10 almonds + 1 cup air popped popcorn will save over 100 calories. And you'll still get in the good fats! 🙌🏼

🔥WEIGHT LOSS DIET GROCERY HACKS 🔥

Planning and organizing a weight loss friendly grocery list is a KEY component of any successful diet plan 🔑👌
~
But it can get a bit overwhelming with the oodles of different foods & food products to choose from 😰...
~
So when I'm building my grocery list 📝, I keep things as simple as possible and focus on buying foods that satisfy 1, 2, or (ideally) all 3 of these requirements
~
1️⃣ - They're Weight Loss Friendly (low-cal, high-protein, high-volume)
2️⃣ - They're Nutritious (fruits, veggies, grains, etc. & as close to their whole form as possible)
3️⃣ - They're Tasty (I have a rule that I ONLY eat foods I like and enjoy 😋)
~
Lots of foods satisfy those requirements, but these six are diet staples I buy every single time I go shopping 🛒
~
I like to think of them as "hacks" because they make hitting my nutrition targets pretty much idiot-proof 🤡
~ ✅Frozen Veggies🥗 - they're quick, nutritious, and there's a bunch of different medleys/mixtures to choose from
~ ✅Rotisserie Chicken🐓 - high in protein, ready to eat, and relatively lean if you remove the skin and eat the breast meat.
~ ✅Microwave Potatoes/Rice 🥔🍚 - incredibly convenient. Just a few button presses and minutes from being cooked! Plus, they don't usually have any added calories — just straight potatoes and rice.
~ ✅ Greek Yogurt 🐮- an all-time favorite protein source for me. It's cheap with a stellar protein-to-calorie ratio (my favorite brand is Dannon Light & Fit)
~ ✅ Mini Treats 🍦- can be anything that helps satisfy your sweet tooth for fewer calories. I recommend finding treats that are individually packaged to make portion control super-duper easy
~ ✅Frozen Fruit 🍌🍓- they'll last 100x longer and are perfect for making smoothies
~

Chipotle is one of the biggest Fast Food Fix requests, so here it is!
~
Now, for the most part, Chipotle is a pretty stellar place for folks looking to get a high-protein💪 & low-calorie ⬇️ meal. But, there are a few weight loss tricksters 🤡 on the menu that trip people up...
~
One spawns from the popular myth that rice is bad for weight loss 🍚❌. I've seen a lot of peeps order a regular burrito and just get rid of the rice thinking that's the best move for their waistline 💁‍♂️...
~
In reality, though, one scoop of rice will only add ~200 Calories. If you're trying to save calories, then you're better off getting rid of the ~300 Calorie tortilla! 😳
~
Then theirs the guac 🥑. Here's the problem 👉 yes it has healthy fats and all... but it's also outrageously calorie-dense!📈
~
Eating higher-calorie healthy food is fine when you're maintaining or building muscle, but when you're trying to lose fat🔥, you have to be careful and not go overboard on them (which is VERY easy to do)...
~
HERE'S YOUR FIX ✅: The burrito bowl (steak or chicken) is the obvious winner 🏆. It eliminates the two big calorie culprits (tortilla & guac), is high in protein, and has a buttload of volume & taste for fewer calories 😋👍
~

✅How To Order a Low-Calorie Weight Loss Meal ✅

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE going out to eat… ’specially for sushi 😋🍣.
~
In fact, that's one of my three criteria for a soul mate. They 1️⃣ must love cozy couches 🛋, 2️⃣ must flush twice after pooping 💩, and 3️⃣ must enjoy eating unreasonable quantities of sushi & froyo on a weekly basis 👍
~
But enough about my (non-existent) love life. This post is about finding a harmonious balance between your desires of losing weight & going out to eat!
~
You see, a lot of folks straight-up petrified of eating at restaurants when they’re dieting. For good reason, too. There are lots of uncertainties and question marks❓around how many calories they’re eating, how much oil was used to cook the meal, what they can or can't order, etc.
~
And all of those concerns are valid. Truth is, you're not going to be able to control all of the variables when you’re going out to eat. What you CAN do, though, is limit the number of variables you encounter...
~
And the best way to do this, I think, is to follow this simple template and order a meal that includes a piece of lean (or lean-ish) protein 🐟, a plain (or plain-ish) starchy carb 🥔🍚, and a low-cal veggie side 🥗
~
One benefit is that nearly every restaurant is going to have a dish, or multiple dishes, that follow this template. Plus, since there are just a few meal components, it’s going to be much easier to (somewhat accurately) estimate portions sizes 🍽✔️
~
Of course, if you don’t eat out often and want to have a “non-tracking” meal, feel free to order what you like! But if you’re someone who tends to go out on a regular basis, and you’re actively trying to lose weight, then this template will definitely help you keep things under control 👌
