Top reasons you may not be losing weight -
Not tracking correctly - cooked/uncooked weights, not tracking drinks and sauces, or not tracking the things you know would take you over your cals- be honest with yourself, the only person you are cheating is yourself.
Weekend blow outs - we are all guilty of it, we have a long week at work and the weekend arrives and we think sod it…… I will have a bottle of wine or a pizza or a bag of pick and mix. If your weight is staying the same and you find yourself doing this and calling it a ‘cheat meal’ then you have probably just re eaten the calories you have been working so hard to reduce during the week.
Cheat meals - it is so easy to undo all of your hard work with one ‘cheat meal’ to give you an idea- . 1 jar of Nutella is 4000 calories, half a jar of this bad boy and you are likely to have eaten 1 and a half days worth of calories- and don't pretend you have never put a spoon in that jar!!! . 1 large pepperoni Dominoes pizza is 2,300 calories. That is probably over a days extra food for most of us in one pizza. . 1 tub of cookie dough ben and Jerrie's ice cream is 1,148 calories - almost a whole days food in one tub of ice cream
See how easy it is to undo what you have been working so hard for all week in one meal!!!!!! Being on a rigid meal plan for too long - this will give you red button syndrome which means you crave all of the foods you haven’t been allowed to eat. This is why I will mostly encourage my clients to do flexible dieting/tracking of macros as it gives more variety and allows for more of a life whilst dieting.
Calories being too low - yes you will lose weight but I can almost guarantee you will end up eating the world in about 6 weeks time!!! Emotional eating - us females are so guilty of this, I do it for sure!!! I have a bad day and make myself feel better with a chocolate bar, I have a good day and reward myself with a chocolate bar!! So basically the only time I don't eat chocolate is on an average day. Mmmmmm…..maybe thats something I need to address….lol!!! There are many many but these are the most common ones I see so I hope this helps ❤️❤️ #weightloss
