The power of mindset and perspective..Repost @physiotrition ・・・ My mindset toward food in 2015vs2018: 🍽-🍽 by @thobrandt - Back in 2015 I was on the “fluffier” side, and I had struggled with my body my whole life (aka I wanted to lose weight😩). The reason why I could never successfully lose weight was because of my mindset. Instead of focusing on what really matters (calories) I focused on words like “healthy” “unhealthy” “clean” “dirty” “guilty” “guilt-free” blah blah blah... I definitely understand why these words can be used in some context’s-> HOWEVER, the problem was that my mindset towards food was binary. I either ate “clean” and I won, or I ate “dirty” and lost. MODERATION DID NOT EXIST🙅♂️ - When I finally started to be successful with my diet, it was because I started focusing on WHAT ACTUALLY MATTERS😲. I found out that my body doesn’t actually care about “food-sources” but it cares about nutrients (no matter how it gets those nutrients). And I found out that if I was in a caloric deficit, then my body would lose weight REGARDLESS of where my calories came from🤯. And most importantly I found out that almonds are not “fat-burning” but actually calorie-dense AF😂😂. - Moral of the story: when my mindset towards nutrition was based off of magazine headlines and YouTube pre-rolls= I didn’t lose weight😢. And when my mindset towards nutrition was based off of actual nutritional science (calories, macroµ-nutrients)=I LOST WEIGHT🤷♂️ - #fitness#alphalete#fitnesslifestyle#bulking#diet#flexibledieting#ifitfitsyourmacros#iifym#deadlift#squat#powerbuilding#hypertrophy#physiology#workout#physique#cleaneating#irishfitfam#ukfitfam#fitsporation#proteinshake#preworkout#cardio#cardiosucks#fitstagram#highprotein#topgymtips#dietstartstomorrow#nutritiontips
*💥Transformation Tuesday💥*. . Clare came to me at the end of March wanting not only to lose weight but to feel better about herself and improve her lifestyle by making simple changes. . She done this herself back in January when she decided to get a gastric band as she would constantly ‘yo-yo’ on her diet and couldn’t stick to anything!! . I knew taking her on would be a challenge especially as she had never stepped foot in a gym in her life so everything was back to basics would I looked forward too as she had no ‘bad habits’!! . Now 4 stone lighter and 40+ inches lost, not just because of the gastric band but by adding in exercise which she had never done before and keeping to a simple diet she is looking and feeling better than ever. . She’s still got a long way to go but for the amount of dedication and effort she has put in in this short period of time I’m looking forward to seeing what the near future will bring with her body and mindset 💪🏼 . She is also gaining strength in all areas as she still continues to lose weight, she has done amazingly and will continue to better herself and do herself and me proud!! 🏋🏼♂️📈 . Well done Clare 💪🏼 .
