Eating 1,200 calories per day but not losing weight?
Lots of clients tell me they eat LESS than this number. That they can’t eat more than this otherwise they will gain weight.
IF that is actually the case and you can’t eat more than 1,200 without gaining then there’s definitely a bigger issue.
But most commonly, people think they are eating a lot less than they are over the course of the week.
3 common examples of how this happens,
1. Eating 1,200 calories Sunday-Thursday, then the weekend comes and you don’t track. You eat 3,500 calories both days. Then already you’ve taken your weekly average well over 1,200. So ask yourself, are you actually CONSISTENTLY eating X amount or are you giving yourself the weekend off?
2. Another common thing is simply just being bad at tracking. Choosing a side salad option on my fitness that comes to 50kcals isn’t accurate if your salad contains, dressing, walnuts, feta cheese etc. Actually, your ‘side salad’ is probably a lot more calorie dense if you ordered it from a restaurant or food company and it contains all these extras.
3. Mindlessly eating. You’ve been dieting for a while. You’re hungry and you’re no longer noticing the biscuit you had with your coffee. Or half of the sweets you shared with your child. You forget about all the little bits here and there that you pick at. It all adds up.
So, ask your self, are you ACTUALLY eating 1,200 calories per day or are you guilty of one of the above?🤷🏼♀️👆🏽
Hope everyone’s had a happy Saturday😎
