I still think of those amazing pancakes I enjoyed @oxfordexchange
forever ago! If you are restricting yourself to 1,200 calories or fewer per day, you could be sending your body into conservation mode. Skipping breakfast then having a tiny salad for lunch that will have you starving within an hour or so, but you still push through the hunger. Yay for discipline—But yikes for your metabolism! Your body doesn’t know when or if it’s going to get its next meal. Your metabolism may slow down its energy expenditure to store for future use. This means holding onto fat and making it more difficult to lose weight. Can you lose weight on a 1,200 calorie “clean” eating diet? Absolutely. But for how long? Eventually you’ll want to add in foods you normally ate in the past, and the possibility for bingeing and overeating will be very strong. That can lead to a downward spiral that can rapidly send you back to square one.
Macros based nutrition combats all of those clean eating issues, while still incorporating healthy foods. By understanding how to count macronutrients (protein, carbs, fats), you can finally reach your fitness and nutrition goals, leading to a happier, healthier version of yourself. You’ll discover how to regulate portion control (like enjoying the occasional stack of lemon blueberry pancakes 😋), maintain your weight loss, and dine out with family and friends without gaining weight. Drop your clean eating and jumpstart your fat loss by incorporating my 1-Time Custom Macronutrient Plan! Get the details via the link in my bio.
