if you’re burning more calories than you consume, you’ll lose weight.
if you are consistent with counting calories, “go on with your bad self! that’s really hard and usually, only competitive bodybuilder mindsets do it properly and stick to it. so hats off if you’re that person”!
i’ll tell you, i’m not that girl. as a trainer..., i’ve tried it, have everything necessary to do it aaaaand i can’t stand it! i’m not against it, in fact☝️ it’s very effective and there will be some calorie counting or better yet, calorie awareness involved with getting your nutrition right.
i can’t speak for all of you, but i know a lot of us enjoy being unbothered so that kind of tedious labor is like an interruption and i know i won’t sustain that.
i use the portion control and serving size approach. it’s practical, it makes sense, it’s super easy to implement, keep up and it works.
basically, all you do is plate your food according to a portion or serving size. your portion is the size of your closed fist 🤛 or the palm✋(no fingers) of your open hand.
when i feel like i need to lean out some, i cut the carbs in half or out altogether except post workout.
the keys to successful portion control eating is to eat fresh food, staying within portion and serving sizes, and paying attention to your weight and size.
if you think this can help someone stay on point with nutrition this year, please share it. repost, dm or tag a goal-getter👭😉! eat. train. live.
Check out this guilt free snack! i cut up a bananna & spread some organic chocolate on it. nutiva makes the best organic hazelnut spread. it even has 40 percent less sugar than the leading brand which i'm guessing is nutella.
