Do you diet on LOW CARBS???
❌Do you RESTRICT food groups to lose weight?
One of the biggest mistakes I used to make was to eat super high protein & then basically as little as possible fat & carbs🍽 It’s like I had this belief ingrained inside my brain that protein is “good”👍 and carbs+fat are “bad”👎 and will make me fat. I remember just having super low energy & fatigue because my hormones got fucked up, and also because I was eating so low carb+fat I would deplete my leptin levels so I would be hungry ALL THE TIME, which obviously leads to binging😕 and also my 🍆stopped working🙃😂no joke😬
Carbs & fats are actually extremely beneficial, especially when you are dieting bc then you are already putting your body under stress, so you want to keep your hormones in balance. What i recommend for weight loss is to eat around 500 cals below your maintenance and then get sufficient protein which is just around 1.5 - 2g grams per kg of bodyweight. Studies show that increasing that number won’t give you any extra results when it comes to building and sustaining muscle mass. A lot of people think you have to go really high in protein but the problem is that when u do, those calories are coming at the expense of carbs & fats, which are both important for healthy hormones. I’d recommend simply: getting adequate protein, and then just filling in the rest of your calories w/ carbs & fats however you prefer, it should come pretty naturally🍫🥔
Main takeaway👉 Don’t think that you have to cut out all carbs & fats from your diet and eat egg whites & spinach all day. Higher fat/carb diets are actually preferable for fat loss (assuming that you’re still in a deficit) bcuz they keep your hormones in balance which helps u sustain your diet.
