Sneaky Calories: 10 ways you’re sabotaging your fat loss progress and what to do about it
You’ve been doing all the “right” things:
You’ve established an appropriate caloric deficit.
You focus on filling your plate with lean proteins and veggies for each meal.
You moderate your carbs, choosing things like fruits, whole grains, rice and pasta and your fats, choosing things like nuts, nut butters, avocados, olive oil and the like all in accordance to your goals.
On days you lift, you add in some additional carbs in your pre and post workout meals.
The majority of your food choices come from fresh, whole, non-processed products and sources that you love the taste of.
You maintain some semblance of balance and allow yourself wiggle room for items that you enjoy that, at one point, you may have thought as as “unhealthy”. Things like chocolate, candy, ice cream, breads, sodas and sweets.
You know that no foods are restricted or off-limits and that there’s a difference between limiting your foods and eliminating them entirely. You understand that no foods are inherently “bad” and nothing – including your nutrition – is going to be perfect.
But…. things aren’t going the way you expected them to. You’re still not seeing results.
It’s quite possible that you’re taking in a lot more calories than you think you are.
In fact, this is usually the case when someone is sure that they are doing everything right, “but it’s still not working!” If your goal is fat loss and you’re wondering why you’re not making as much progress as you had hoped, check to see if any of these might be part of the reason.
