Anyway, my coaching style is a lot different than the styles of most personal trainers and nutritionists.
To them, it’s just following the same old mantras: ‘Eat less and exercise more. A calorie’s a calorie is a calorie. We need to burn more calories than we consume.’
I once did a podcast with a weight loss doctor who used this example to try and explain the process, ‘Imagine you’re stranded on a desert island. There’s little to no vegetation and wildlife on this island. You’re going to lose weight!’
Well, duh! I have the fine motor skills of a man without limbs, so I’d probably be dead in a week. However, that’s neither here nor there…
Today, I posted a meme on my social media accounts, If you didn’t see it, check it out below:
This just about sums it up!
Eating low-calorie for too long will result in a few negative things: 1) A plateau on your weight loss journey, 2) Low energy, and 3) Hormone imbalance.
If your body is in starvation mode for too long, one of either your thyroid, adrenals, liver or ovaries will function sub-optimally, resulting in your having an even HARDER time losing weight than you did when you started. Plus, this can lead to some serious health conditions if left untreated…
The way my clients eat and the way my clients work out is exactly the same way that I do both. We’re efficient with our time, we change things up from a fitness standpoint and we eat real, whole, organic foods.
We don’t track calories or portions. Instead, we listen to our bodies. We’ve developed mind-body connections that enable us to discern not only when we’re hungry, but what we’re hungry for.
Case in point: If we need a quick afternoon pick-me-up, we’ll turn to an apple. If we need to maintain energy levels for the next few hours and need to snack on something, it’s a handful or two of raw, organic nuts.
You don’t need to go to bed hungry. You don’t need to feel like it’s nap time at 2:00. And you certainly don’t need to throw your hormones all out of whack.
