Good morning beautiful people!! 🌅😊
It’s Friday, weekend vibes! Which means cheat meal, - CARBS for most of us simple people!
So why don’t we take 2 min to discuss carbs now!
Are CARBS making you FAT? 😅
No…but the rest of your diet just might be!.. Stop blaming that slice of bread or the slice of pizza you had for dinner for the reason you’re not losing weight.
Lets get something straight. If you’re honest with yourself, and living life with the 80/20 rule.. then that little treat isn’t going to undo all your hard work. The 1 meal you had off track isn’t the reason you don’t look according to what you’d like to at the very moment..
So to be clear: There are only 2 reasons you’r not lookin as sharp as you’d like:
1) You’re in a calorie surplus, which means you’re eating more calories per day then you consume and for an extended period of time. Sometimes we think we are eating clean and we actually don’t 🤨. Without tracking your food or cooking it yourself, it can be difficult to know how much you’re actually consuming.
You would be shocked if you knew just how high calorie a ‘salad’ or ‘protein smoothie’ can equate to. Sometimes, you’re actually better off with that 🍕 . So firstly, before you start blaming that slice of bread or your genetics, I suggest you start tracking your food, just for a few days to get an idea.
2) You have been in a calorie deficit for too long. When you drop your calories & you drop fat, it only lasts for so long b4 your body adapts and learns to function on that amount. This is why we periodize everything. That’s why getting the body you want doesn’t happen overnight, its along process if you want to do it the right way. If this is you, you gotta increase your calories for an extended period of time to then bring them back down again.
That way, when it comes to your treats.. you don’t have to feel guilty..& you can stop tracing ‘em! Because it’s now part of your lifestyle & you’ve earned it! 😎💪
