This is for everyone who asked me "what was my secret" to lose weight...and honestly there is no secret! It is all out there. Being a nutrition major was definitely a bonus to me..Like I always say..it is about a lifestyle change rather than a quick fix! Most of us are desperately looking for easy ways and I dont blame you because it gets frustrating when you dont feel good about yourself!
"Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't, I give myself reasons why I can".
The whole theory behind losing weight is to watch your calories in vs. calories out..I had slighest idea on how many calories I was eating..a slice of pizza or a muffin did not seem like a lot..but I was so wrong! Also, another thing most people fail to realize is calorie need is different for everyone depending on their height, metabolism, age, physical activity etc..So what is the key to weight loss?
- Keep in mind, healthy weight loss is 1-2 lbs/week.
- Keep a eating schedule in order to avoid overeating later in the day. It will also keep up your metabolism and give you energy througout the day.
- Eat to be satisfied, NOT stuffed. We like to clean our plate or go for seconds,CURB those habits.
