I know it can be hard. Weight loss is a daunting journey. Patience can
run low. Progress may be slow. The HOW is often overwhelming.
I talk to so many women who tell me they've stopped eating carbs or
they're eating less than 1000 calories...
Although several of them have experienced some amount of weight loss, each ALWAYS express they are still unhappy with their results or have stopped seeing results after a few months. Many of them are fatigued, low energy, in a brain fog, and just not feeling themselves.
When you don't consume enough calories your body goes into a starvation state.
When you start eating again, your body will store all the nutrients you're consuming instead of using those nutrients as energy and burning them off because it's preparing you for another starvation state.
This stage, (or cycle if you go days without eating and days with binging) will make weight loss really hard, will have your weight fluctuating drastically, or will provide unhealthy weight loss that isn't long term sustainable.
Additionally, under eating makes it really hard for your body to build muscle (Aka tone up). Most girls that come to me want tone and definition in their arms, legs and core.. you can't achieve this by under eating.
Carbohydrates are your main energy source. When you're not consuming a healthy amount of carbs you may be feeling drained, sluggish and in a brain fog. EVERY TIME someone tells me they've cut carbs I ask them if they feel this way and they all look at me and sigh "YES!"
Understanding the healthy amount and types of carbs to consume is the solution, not cutting them out altogether.
"But what about the Keto Diet, I see it working for so many?"
As with any diet, this plan is having you consume fewer calories than you burn off -- therefore you see weight loss.
If you're someone who consumes carbs at every meal and they're all the wrong type of carbs then suddenly you cut those foods out -- you're going to be consuming fewer calories and fewer bad carbs -- therefore you see weight loss.
Just the same as if we were to put you on a plan with the RIGHT carbs and have you consume the RIGHT amount of those carbs under the correct calorie intake for your body -- you will see weight loss while still consuming carbs.
What we strive to do with Get Fit Babe is help women with a simplified plan where they're eating their favorite foods in the correct portions to fuel their workouts and get long term sustainable results.
We help women calculate their caloric target according their current weight and weight loss goals and then it's adjusted according to the program they select.
(The number of calories varies for high intensity programs, resistance programs, or low impact programs.)
The process is simplified so there isn't much thought for the client. They plug their weight into an equation which gives them their calorie count.
From there they are told how many of each food group they should consume daily.
(For myself it's 3 veggies, 2 fruit, 3 carbs, 4 protein. A serving of each food group is measured out with a portion control container.)
They then select their favorite foods within each food group and we develop a meal plan from there.
What we don't do:
- We don't count calories, weigh food or use the MyFitnessPal app. Myself and many women tend to develop poor eating habits when focusing on a caloric number.
- We don't weigh ourselves daily -- Again bad habits.
- We don't starve ourselves, cut carbs or deprive ourselves of life's guilty pleasures (Wine and chocolate lover here!)
- We don't go at it alone.
We have accountability and support from a community of women!
In summary, consuming too few calories or depriving yourself of a food group will actually be detrimental to your weight loss results. It's important to follow a fitness and nutrition plan that factors in your specific body type and needs. This isn't cookie cutter one size fits all, it SHOULD be customized to you, your needs, your goals and your struggles.
