I’ll be running the below challenge Friday, February 23rd – Tuesday, March 6th (2018).
“I’m eating healthy but i’m not losing weight?!” This is one of the most frequent DMs I get.
Over the years I’ve learned,
🔸”Healthy food” does in fact have calories and while it is delicious and nutritious, some of it is also calorie dense. 🥜🥑
🔸You went out for lunch but you only got a salad. Cool, was it 500 calories or 1500 calories because of all the dressing, nuts, cheese and dried fruit? 🥗
🔸You cannot out train a bad diet 🏃🏽. It doesn’t matter how much cardio or crunches you do, if you eat more calories than you burn, you will most likely gain weight.
🔸Lastly, what else are you really eating? 😮 Just because you didn’t plan on eating that cake your co-worker brought it, that mini candy you found in the car, or that Tbsp. of peanut butter that was way bigger than a Tbsp., it still counts!
So now what? To make a change you need to be informed about how much AND what you’re really eating.
🔸 Track EVERYTHING you eat for 7 days without changing the way you eat. Being honest is what will get you the best results and most useful feedback.
🔸 Use a free app like My Fitness pal to record and scan the food you eat. It’ll allow me to look over every single day and item and give you better suggestions. The more detail you use to track your food the more I can help.
🔸 Subscribe to my site to learn what to do with all the information you collect over the 7 days. The steps and my recommendations will be sent out March 7th following the challenge. Subscribe by clicking here.
🔸 Comment on my Instagram post from Friday February 23rd to let me know you’re participating. This is how i will select the winner.
I will provide Two randomly selected people from the challenge with:
- A review of your meal diary and feedback on what realistic changes you can make to get closer to their goals
- Suggested calories for weight loss, maintenance or gains
- Personal recommendations (and if possible, resources) on how you can reach your goals
- A check in e-mail from me two weeks after the challenge
The newsletter I send out after the challenge will have lots of suggestions on how to move forward following your 7 days of food tracking. I spent several days writing it all up. It’s about 6 pages long as I want it to be as helpful as possible!
This Sunday I’ll also be sending out a a detailed write up about my cut. It’ll include my starting calories, how I lowered them, rest day calories, as well as the challenges I’ve fast. I also talk about what I’m going to do next and how to get out of a cut. If you want to know more about this make sure you’re subscribed to my site.
