Why aren't you losing weight even though you are eating healthy?
"I am eating healthy, but I am not losing weight", or "I am eating healthy, but like hell I am gaining weight like this", are some of the most frequently said sentences that have prompted Laura Lambe to answer. On her Instagram page she explains where the problem of these people lies and what they should do differently.
The fact that you eat healthy, or healthy foods does not mean that these have no caloric value.
To lose weight you need to have a calorie deficit, which means consuming or eating fewer calories and burning more calories than you are consuming. .The truth is that many "healthy" foods are high in nutrients, but also high in calories.
So simply eating "healthy" food will not lead to fat loss. As in the picture above, two almonds also have a lot of calories.
However this does not mean that you should give up certain foods. This means eating them in moderation. So the amount or size of what you eat matters more than what you eat.
Some points that should not be forgotten are:
Something that is labeled as "healthy eating" is not necessarily great for weight loss.
Something labeled "low fat" does not mean it has no calories and no carbohydrates / sugars.
"Gluten Free" does not mean that there are no calories.
At the end of the day - Everything you consume except water contains calories.
If you do not know where to start Laura suggests using the "myfitnesspal" app, a great tool to use for at least 30 days and give you an idea of ??how many calories you are generally consuming.
