How to Achieve a Caloric Deficit without Counting Calories

How to Achieve a Caloric Deficit without Counting Calories 

This is a questions I receive all the time. Counting calories is a mentally exhausting task that, in my opinion, can really cause a lot of negative stress on the. body. A caloric deficit is essential for weight loss and can be achieved in a number of ways without tracking calories. Here are three examples:

1. Eat more fiber-rich foods slowly: Foods that are high in fiber, such as vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, can help you feel fuller for longer and prevent overeating - but only if you consume them at a slower pace. The stomach will expand and the hormones will tell the brain that you are full. These foods are also generally lower in calories, making it easier to create a caloric deficit.

2. Incorporate more physical activity into your routine: By increasing your activity level, the ability to burn more calories and create a deficit goes up. This can be as simple as going for a walk after dinner or taking the...

Why is Fat Loss so Hard?

Here is a questions I get all the time: Why is Fat Loss so Hard?

Lets just put it out there: Losing body fat, especially around the belly, is hard. It's a common goal that many people struggle with, and there are a multitude of reasons why it can be so difficult. In this blog post, I want to explore some of the reasons why I find that fat loss is so hard based on what I see from my clients journey, and how making lifestyle changes and mindset shifts can make a big difference in your success.

One reason why fat loss is hard is that it requires significant lifestyle changes. This in other words, is saying that you have to live life differently than you have the last 20, 30, 40, 50+ years.

This can be intimidating and overwhelming, especially if you're used to living a certain way.

For example, if you're used to eating fast food and...

Where is the first place you Lose Fat from?

Where is the first place you lose fat from? 

Where is the first place you lose fat from? This is a question I get a lot! When the body loses fat, the order in which fat loss occurs, from specific areas, is predominantly determined by genetics. Some will to lose fat from their arms, legs, or face first, while some may notice a loss in abdominal fat before any other areas.

Generally, the human body will usually lose fat from all over the body rather than from one specific area. This means that while you may not be able to control exactly where the fat is lost from, you can still lose fat by maintaining a healthy diet and exercising regularly.

Keep in mind that losing fat is not the same as losing weight. Weight loss can be the result of losing fat, muscle, or water. To lose fat, it's important to focus on creating a calorie deficit by burning more calories than you consume through a combination of diet and exercise.

Speaking to diet - you can choose nutrient dense foods that...

Stress Management Food Choices for the Busy Professional

Stress Management Food Choices for the Busy Professional

As a busy professional stress is definitely part of the week. In my opinion it is not about finding a life that has no stress... it is all about understanding stress management and what that means for you. Stress management is extremely important for the busy professional as it determines mood, productivity, energy and confidence.

Weight Loss without Dieting - The Lifestyle Change

Weight Loss Without Dieting:

The thing I hate most about the wellness industry is the millions of products, programs and people who express the way to lose weight is through dieting. The promise of losing a ton of weight in a short amount of time - sometimes expressing that it can be done while eating junk food and not lifting a finger! 

It's terrible to see people all over the world (including myself at one point) fall for these quick fixes, just to be right back where we started a few months down the road. Obviously the promise of easy, quick weight loss is attractive - but it is not sustainable or the reality. Making the wellness industry a trillion dollar industry. 

Weight loss without dieting - now that is how we should all think. See, the other problem with diets is we never get to the root of the issue. Why are we struggling with our weight in the first place. Is it even necessary to focus on weight loss or are we being driven by society thoughts. I...
