Are You REALLY In A Calorie Deficit?
It may surprise you how little calories are necessary in order to create a deficit for weight loss
ARE YOU REALLY IN A CALORIE DEFCIT?
You’re putting in the hard work in the gym, working hard to keep your diet as clean as possible but just aren’t seeing the results you expect. This could well be down to the amount of food you’re consuming rather than the wrong food choices.
I always recommend to my clients that they weigh food out, especially at the beginning of their journey so that they at least have a good idea of what their portions should look like.
It can be really surprising how small a portion of food can be, especially if you’re used to eating large quantities or are eating foods high in fat.
For example, foods such as nuts and cereals may seem small portion sizes, however in reality the calories in these foods can be gigantic.
Be careful estimating amounts rather than weighing them out. A tablespoon of peanut butter is 116 calories, however a heaped teaspoon is 235 calories. Before you start estimating food portions, you really should weigh out everything before you gain a knowledge and some understanding of how much you require of each food.
It is so easy to exceed necessary portion sizes. Always err on the side of caution if you are not going to weigh things out and underestimate portions.
The difference you see in your portion sizes could be mind blowing, the difference in your results could be life changing!
