Weight Loss is more dependent on your diet than on your exercise habits
It is easier to wonder whether diet or exercise habits is important on your weight loss journey. It is scientifically proven that cutting down calories appears to promote weight loss more effectively than does increasing exercise. The key to weight loss is to consume fewer calories than you burn. For most people, it’s possible to lower calorie intake to a greater degree than it is to burn more calories through increased exercise.
Growing up experience impact on diet or exercise habits
We grew up listening to our parents here, who did not teach us that it was food because they didn’t know. Look at my mom. She had no idea what food she was doing & clearly, neither did I.
As a kid, I was active. I played tennis every day. Can you tell me? I don’t think so.
Eat your way to fit is NOT another diet. It’s my coaching program that RE-programs your mind to change and finally SEE how to Eat your way, not my way.
Did you think it was diet or exercise habits that helps you get fit?
Losing Weight SUCKS! It’s freaking hard and I know it and I agree with you. I feel like some of you might get frustrated that I made this difficult and it’s impossible to follow. Meanwhile, I didn’t invent this diet. I am just sharing with you the HEALTHIEST way to eat which will make you lose weight and get fit.
It is PATIENCE, TIME, CONSISTENCY, LEARNING, AND READING. TRACKING IS A TEMPORARY LESSON. You know that you didn’t gain weight over night, so neither can you lose it over night. Developing good diet or exercise habits takes time. You might fall a couple of times, it requires determination to keep going.
How did you get here? How did you get overweight? I know we can all agree that eating more than your body burns is how everyone gains weight. That is just the human body that I did not invent.
Every single person Eats and Burns Food every single day. What you eat and how much you eat has a Number. For example, the general rule a woman can eat 2,000 calories per day TO STAY THE SAME, or she can eat 1,500 per day and lose 1 pound a week OR she can eat 2,000 but workout to burn 500 calories.
Generally, 1 hour of my workouts IF you lift heavy as you see me lifting HEAVY is 500 calories or close to it. You can track your burn with an Iwatch or fitbit or any other tracking device to track how much you burn. I know for me burning 500 calories can also be 85 min of jogging and walking on a treadmill.
I did not invent the food that you love which has too much sugar or too many carbs that are so delicious.
Everyone is busy and wants to eat quick food that comes in a bag or a box and can be microwaved in 2 minutes or less, but the only way that food can be made by these manufactures is with Sugar, Salt, and Preservatives so that they have a long shelf life and can last in your pantry for months. I didn’t invent these brands.
Each one of us burns a certain number of calories per day. I workout 60 to 90 minutes a day 5 to 7 days a week because that’s what it takes for my slow metabolism to fasten to burn the food that I eat.
You might be different; you might not need to work out as much as I do. You might be younger than me, have different blood types, and perhaps you burn energy faster or slower. We are all different and have to start learning about our bodies.
Eating whatever you want is EASY, not tracking food is Easy, Not reading these labels is easy.
Being overweight is HARD, Losing Weight is HARD, YOU need to pick which HARD life you want to live.
I named this EAT YOUR WAY TO FIT, you don’t have to ask my permission if you can eat this or that, you should EAT what you want. However, you need to figure out and learn WHAT the food you eat does to your body.
I can only share THE best foods with you. The LESS processed is BEST, Lower Salt is best, and Lower Sugar is best. Scan what you eat and look at YOUR numbers at the end of the day.
Everything you put in your belly fills up in your belly and either gets burned off OR turns to FAT.
If it’s NOT on the food list that I created and it comes in a package, it needs to be studied by you when you scan it and weigh in week after week.
This Is a learning curve, it took me 1 full year to learn and understand my body. It is healthy to lose 1 pound a week which is 4 pounds a month, which is 48 pounds a year to KEEP OFF forever.
Most people fail on a diet and most people want to lose 2 to 3 lbs pounds a week and they always gain it back. How many times have you tried dieting before? I am teaching you how to eat healthily, this is a lifestyle NOT A DIET! This Is about LEARNING not taking a short cut. THERE IS NO SHORT CUT and THERE IS NO MAGIC PILL. You did not gain weight overnight and you will not lose weight overnight. You need to be patient with yourself, consistent, and determined with your goal.
