04 Jan 5 Common Weight Loss Mistakes
Too Much Protein
It’s true that an increase in protein intake will help with satiety and keep you full longer preventing excess calorie intake.However, we’re finding too much protein in people’s diets. Up to 2.0g/kg body weight could help with weight loss. Most clients who are overweight calculate this with their present weight instead of their adjusted body weight.
Too Much Fat
Healthy fats, like nuts, avocados, olives, are an important part of your diet. Make sure you get a good source of healthy fat at each meal. Be mindful of your portion sizes here. A whole avocado is not a serving as much as we would love for it to be.
Not Enough Water
It’s important to keep yourself hydrated at all times. It’s very common to confuse your thirst and hunger. Carry a water bottle around with you at all times to make sure you are getting your hydration needs met.
Not Enough Movement
250 minutes is the number you want to shoot for. Now if you are just starting to exercise, that may be a verydifficult goal to attain and not recommend. Start small and work your way up!
Listen to your body and feed it accordingly. Don’t get caught up in how often you should eat or what time you should eat. Let your body cue you in to when and how much to eat. This may be VERY difficult for some who have yo-yo dieted in the past. Learn to trust yourself!
