Are you eating healthy but never losing weight?
🍒 Try to record everything you eat and you might be surprised! So many people think they are eating a small amount of food, but they are not. Maybe you put too much oil in your salad, or you have a few too many drinks.
🥜 Beware of healthy foods high in calories! Let’s think about avocado, nuts, hummus and dried fruit.
🍔 Your cheat meal ruins your diet and your efforts.
Let’s take an imaginary friend Jame who’s estimated maintenance calories are about 2,000 calories per day. She has decided to lose weight. Her recommended intake to facilitate fat loss is 1,700 kcal per day.
Here is her week:
- Monday: 1,700 kcal
- Tuesday: 1, 700 kcal
- Wednesday: 1,700 kcal
- Thursday: 1,700 kcal
- Friday: 1,700 kcal
- Saturday: 4,000 kcal
- Sunday: 1,700 kcal
She had a calories deficit but then she ate 4,000 kcal on Saturday that completely undermine all the efforts.
🐢 You’re not really training hard. Maybe you go to the gym but you’re not training heavily. And walking your dog doesn’t mean training! Add intensity to your workout!
