"I Eat Healthy... Why Am I Not Losing Weight?"

A question I hear all the time👉🏻 "But Sarah, I eat healthy. Why am I not losing weight or seeing any changes?"

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Great question, but wayy to vague. 🤷🏼‍♀️

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

What do YOU define as healthy? Because healthy means something different for everyone.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It could mean that you cut out soda, which is healthy, but you might still not lose weight.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It could mean that you're no longer eating fast food, which is healthy, but you might not lose weight.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Weight loss can be frustrating. Not only that, but there is SO much misinformation out there. Don't eat carbs, don't eat too much protein, don't eat fat. (Basically don't eat anything. 🤦🏼‍♀️)

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

To keep it simple👉🏻 The base of weight loss is going to be a caloric deficit. Which means that you're burning more calories than you're taking in.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

You could do that by cutting out sugary foods, adding in more vegetables, exercising more often or increasing your overall activity throughout the day. Each of those choices being great healthy changes to your life, but unless those changes put your body in caloric deficit then you might not see the progress you're wanting.

(Important note: Being healthy DOES NOT have to equal weight loss. I'm simply speaking directly to people with weight loss as their primary goal for the moment. 🙂)
