“I’m Eating Really Well, BUT I’m Not Losing any Weight”

March 16, 2016

I’m eating really well, but I’m not losing any weight!

Ugh! I hear this way too often and it always comes from the person who won’t keep a food journal. I’m really not sure what they expect me to do.

I’m going to be completely honest, If I can’t see exactly what’s going into a persons mouth, then I can’t even guess what the problem might be.

Just because your eating good quality food doesn’t mean that you’re not eating too much. I’m not obsessed with calories, I’m truly interested in how those calories break down.

How much fat are you eating?  Fats are needed for health, but not everyone thrives on a high fat diet…. I’m one of those people. I’ve seen people getting an extra 2000 calories from fat that they just didn’t realize was in all those nuts they were eating as “snack food”.

Are you eating “healthy bars”?  Still processed and they’re loaded with sugar…  Fruit (especially dried fruit) is sugar!

How much of your diet is composed of “inflammatory” foods? Nuts, eggs, dairy, copious amounts of fruit, etc…  These foods can all be extremely inflammatory.

Are you eating vegetables?  Not just a salad, but vegetables with every meal?

Just because you don’t think you’re intolerant to gluten, doesn’t mean that it’s not bad for you.  Eating gluten encourages and supports weight gain and difficulty in losing weight. Now, a new study published tackles this very issue. You can read it here.

If you truly want to lose weight, it’s time to get honest and write it down!

In health!
