What You Think Makes You Gain Fat.
It’s not eating at night, it’s not eating dietary fat, it’s not eating carbs, it’s not because you’re not fasting, it’s not because you’re not doing a carnivore diet…
So, what’s the reason why you’re gaining body fat?
You’re eating too many calories! Your body is storing excess calories as body fat. In order to lose weight, you want to make sure you’re in a calorie deficit.
You might’ve heard people tell you that certain foods make you gain fat. Or, perhaps eating at a certain time makes you gain fat. But, that’s not true at all. You could be eating the healthiest most nutritious foods in the entire world. But, if you are eating too many calories for your body, you will gain fat.
Regardless if the calories are “clean” or ““non-GMO” or “cage free”.
The quality of your food is important for your health, don’t get it twisted! Clean eating is key! But, the quantity is more important for weight loss in general.
Both go hand-in-hand… But you can still gain fat from doing keto, carnivore, intermittent fasting, etc. etc.
If you are struggling to lose fat, it’s because somehow the calories are adding up from the different sources of food, drinks, sauces, etc.
It could be from snacking throughout the day.
It could be from adding lots of salad dressings to your salads
It could be from booze and sugary drinks.
It could be from the ultra, mega, super awesome açai bowl that is piled up in granola, honey, and peanut butter.
If you are not losing body fat, stop blaming certain foods, nutrients, and times of the day.
Start focusing on how to minimize your calorie intake. Start being more mindful of how many calories you are eating.
Start being more active throughout the week. Tag a friend who needs to read this!
