🥬🥦🥔🍗 Today I want to talk a little bit about CALORIE DEFICITS and fat/weight loss and what’s actually healthy.
_
I think most of us know by now that if you want to achieve weight loss, you have to be in a calorie deficit, i.e. eating less than the amount of energy you burn per day. This is absolutely true. But no matter what your goals are, the QUALITY of the foods that you eat matter immensely.
_
And if your goal is fat loss, achieving your goal in a healthy, sustainable way matters too.
_
Going on extreme restrictive diets that limit calories rarely work. Why? Because of the way restriction makes you feel. You might feel hangry and thinking about food 24/7, tired, and depressed.
_
I truly feel that no matter your starting point, a steady and conservative approach to fat loss is better than trying to lose too much very quickly, only to create unhealthy habits, such as skipping meals or not getting a well-rounded balance of macronutrients — carbs, fat, and protein.
_
Making sure that you’re eating healthy, balanced nutrition is key, even if you’re trying for a calorie deficit. For example, one of my clients started her deficit on 200 calories less per day (1800 instead of 2000), the equivalent of 1 bag of potato chips. We started by tracking her nutritional intake to the point where she learned so much about food and portions that she now eats more intuitively without having to track anymore. She checked in with me a few weeks ago and lost 20 lbs while eating delicious, nutritious foods that make her body feel good!

I’m a strong believer in eating better, not necessarily less and often swapping more nutritious foods for less nutritious ones will keep you fulller longer, and feeling great! .
