You know what to eat.
You know which foods are good for you and will take you closer to your goals.
But are you frustrated and feeling like you are eating healthily but not getting the results you really want.
Here are 4 common reasons.
Mindless eating. Stressful snacking. Night Time Nibbling.
Are you eating healthy meals BUT mindless snacking between meals when you are not hungry?
Do you feel bouts of “micro stress” during the day and find your self eating for a quick comfort fix?
Even if it’s healthy food or snack you may do this multiple times through the day.
All these calories add up and will take you way over your daily calorie amount.
Be aware today of how many times you put something into your mouth between meals when you are not hungry.
Are you stressed? Even if it’s just a quick stress moment do you reach for food?
Awareness is key. Once you realise you are doing it you can stop it.
Did you get a good 8 hours of unbroken sleep last night?
If not lack of quality sleep month after month will have a huge impact on your hormone levels, your appetite, your mood and cravings. When you are sleep deprived you eat more and make poor food choices.
Work on your sleep routine this week. Switch of your phone before bed and dont have it in your bedroom.
Are you too busy to exercise?
Daily exercise is crucial for speeding up your metabolic rate. Burning calories, increasing muscle mass and body composition no forgetting the impact of your mental health.
