Eating healthy but not losing weight?🤔 ..Here’s what may have happened. Something to look at if you feel stuck or have hit a weight loss plateau despite feeling like you’re doing ALL the right things🙇🏻‍♀️
⠀
If you track your food in an App, if can be easy to underestimate or forget bits & bobs here and there. Also, if it’s “just a bit” then we may not even track it! I mean, we are all busy, so it’s easy to eat this or that and completely forget to track it later🙂..Although this is often not our intention- this can be the difference between weight LOSS or GAIN🤷🏻‍♀️
⠀
🔸 Things like oils, salad dressing, high fat snacks and toppings can add up to a 595 calorie difference, thus taking you out of a calorie deficit.
⠀
✏️ Tracking can be helpful for a few days-then stop once you get the gist of portion sizes.
⠀
💛 For sure, one extra items alone is obviously not a big deal, but all the extras together can add up.
⠀
Hope you found this helpful!⠀ ⠀ ========

  • 💥Why calorie counting matters💥
.
It’s not magic, it’s science.
.
A lot of people aren’t aware that they’re eating “too much” … especially those who have busy schedules and tend to choose to eat fast food for convenience.
.
But as @chadhargrove explains - "food volume” plays a huge factor in this.
.
High calorie/low volume foods allow you to overeat calories very easily if you’re not careful.
.
Be sure to read his full post below to get more of an understanding of this concept and continue your progress on your fat loss journey!

Reading through Mindless Eating right now and they toss an interesting tidbit backed by research.
-
That feeling full is based on food volume, not calories.
-
Thinking about this for a second I realize it isn’t surprising. Just didn’t know it was backed by enough evidence to understand it as a rule.
-
So yeah, a plate of green vegetables will keep you more full than 3-4 tablespoons of olive oil.
-
Even thought the olive oil is probably about twice as high in calories.
-
Again, you think about this and you may be like “duh”. Kind of obvious.
-
But the funny connection you need to make on top of putting calories in the right spot is:
-
If we only ever ate these nutrient and fibre dense foods, that take up a lot of space without being highly caloric at all — literally foods that are really hard to overeat unless we really try to — we wouldn’t need to calorie count.
-
Not saying calorie counting is the only way — but it does appear to be the most certain and efficient. Which is what you want when looking to get in shape right?
-
That said, it’s those easy to overeat, high calorie/low volume foods that are also borderline addictive that force us to manage portions.
-
Because if we don’t, we overeat calories way too easily.
-
Just something to think about. Just another feather in the cap for vegetables, fruits, lean meats and fish, and other nutrient dense foods with fibre.
-
Base your diet around those and do what’s necessary to make it happen. The rest will get easier.

  • MISSING CALORIES YOU SHOULD BE COUNTING!🍷Tag a friend who needs to see this!👀

“🦖This is a common mistake that could be stalling your progress. And believe me, I get it, and have done this before too.
-
💯For the most part people will stay on track, recording all of their large meals or main dishes. Then without even noticing they start to grazes on other snacks, add some dressing, or even a beverage at the end of the night.
-
✅Sure, one day of this is perfectly okay, but over the course of a week, month, or year the additional calories can sneak up on you. Let’s say you don’t track the extra stuff for 5 of the 7 days of the week. That is 700 cals/day equating to 3,500 extra cals/week. That a pound per week!!
-
❓So what should you do? Consistently track everything! Doing so will make you much more conscious of how much you are eating. Even if you go over, track it! Then you can adjust over the course of the next week, two weeks, three weeks.
-
👎🏻Putting the blind eye to extra things you have is simply starting a very slippery slope of bad habit and extra calories.”

  • Had a chat with an online client who started up recently.
-
Calorie numbers in the right spot, scale not really doing anything.
-
First thing I want you to know is what’s gong through my mind. It sure isn’t what goes through the clients or maybe your mind. It isn’t “omg what’s wrong why isn’t it working”. It isn’t frustration or confusion.
-
It’s “let’s find out what’s happening that needs to be”.
-
So I take a look at his myfitnesspal.
-
The first day I look at has “1 medium potato” listed.
-
A food I know that has to be weighed to get accuracy.
-
The example above is important. There’s a 116 calorie difference. Not a huge deal if it happens irregularly, but chances are if you aren’t measuring this, you’re missing other things.
-
I often say the difference between diligently tracking and being quick about it — especially when you’re starting out — is progress.
-
When you start paying attention you realize how easy 300-500 calories can add up.
-
You realize depending on the food choice or meal, 2000 calories can turn into 4000 extremely easy. Just track the next time you go out to eat and drink socially on a Friday night.
-
If you’re overweight you’ll find answers.
-
Even in the best of times calorie tracking isn’t an exact science. You have to allow for some error. You’re not gonna get it right Saturday night at your friends BBQ even though tracking your best can still help.
-
You won’t get it right while you travel and there’s a time and place to not care.
-
But when you can, you should be working to be as accurate as possible and the first place to look f progress isn’t coming on the scale in your washroom is to pay close attention to the calories going in.
-
Look for errors in your tracking. They aren’t hard to make.
-
And in the end, they matter.
-

  • FDOE ~ around 2000kcal
Accidentally had a banana twice and chicken twice on this particular day.
.
Beyond calories and macros I aim to hit my fibre intake of 30g+ and decently split my fats across saturated and unsaturated. If I eat a range of foods and fruit & veg it’s fairly easy to max out the micronutrient RDI targets too.
.
I post meal diaries sometimes to provide ideas, please don’t feel the need to copy them to a T. The way I ate on a given day may not suit your goals or nutritional situation.
.
There is no magic held in the exact macros shown here. No black and white split or figure for fat loss or muscle gain, just lots of shades of grey 🤘

  • You don’t have to spend extra money to lose weight. 
You don’t need a special diet, supplements, or a gym membership. The one thing you need to be successful, you actually can’t buy. Discipline is the secret ingredient to any successful weight loss journey. You have to do the hardest thing of all and learn how to improve your behavior every single day. Yes, it’s incredibly hard, but nothing great in life comes easy.

I lost 40 lbs. without a gym membership or special food. I didn’t even start working out consistently until this year. It really is as simple as eating less and moving more. The hard part is having the discipline to actually do it. It’s just like working out. The more you practice it, the easier it gets. 
With that said, there is nothing wrong with spending money on special products or gym memberships. But please be careful of anything that sounds too good to be true and do your research. The diet industry wants to sell you the myth that fat loss is complicated, but their special product can crack the code for you and make you successful. It’s just not true. You can be successful without breaking the bank.

  • SNACK COMPARISON:⁣⁣
⁣⁣
-⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Although the option on the right is doing little to nothing to meet your micro-nutrition needs ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It also is probably doing less damage to your body composition goals, than some would have you believe ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Neither option is to be glorified or vilified ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
And neither option, inherently... is ‘good’ or ‘bad’⁣⁣
⁣⁣
-⁣⁣
⁣⁣
As I always say...⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Nutrient density is absolutely important⁣⁣ in the context of your overall diet
⁣⁣
However, ultimately —> changes in body composition are the result of a positive, or negative energy balance (calories in vs calories out)⁣⁣
⁣⁣
And that’s all there is to it⁣⁣
⁣⁣
-⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Also, FYI...⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Dried fruit and shop brought smoothies are far less nutrient dense than you might expect anyway⁣⁣
⁣⁣
So if you’re just suffering them in pursuit of a ‘healthier’ diet, or have some kind of fat loss goal in mind...⁣⁣
⁣⁣
You’re probably barking up the wrong tree friends

  • We are all different, and success is success, whatever method you follow to make that happen! @ww.uk helped me to change my relationship with food, it helped me gain confidence & body positivity by helping me to make a shift in my mindset, the #wwcommunity is my support network! And I've been really lucky to be able to turn a passion into a career by becoming a Wellness Coach. But, I don't judge anyone for any other paths they take towards their health and wellness goals, I love to see people grow in strength and find in inspiration from lots of different paths through @instagram let's chose to lift and support other women & men 💞
