Eating Healthy But Getting Fatter??🤔 As a Personal Trainer quite often I hear people saying that they're eating "healthily" but they aren't losing weight or even fatter. WHY COULD THIS BE? No 1️⃣ Reason - Portion Control - The main reason tends to be from eating too many of these "healthy" foods too often. Which leads us to point number 2... No 2️⃣ Reason - Calorie Density - Many foods which are often considered healthy (nuts, avocadoes, rice, porridge, dried fruit) also tend to be very calorie dense which means we shouldn't eat too much of them. Check the quantities you're consuming. No 3️⃣ Reason - You're Being Duped - You'll read the words "low fat", "healthy", "wholemeal", (or "high protein" is the latest one) on products but we need to realise just how deceitful advertisers can be. These claims may well be true, but they fail to mention that they have added sugar to the low fat product, or that the high protein product is also high calorie. Don't be conned. Always check the label on the back. No 4️⃣ Reason - You're Kidding Yourself - The other reason is of course that we are good at kidding ourselves. We often underestimate how many calories we are eating or we overestimate how much energy we have burned from exercising. Tiredness isn't always the bear indicator of how many calories you've burnt. Audit your diet for 1 week very precisely and honestly and I guarantee you'll be shocked. ⏺️Another important point to be aware of is that "Healthy Foods" are an artificial construct. They are based upon our belief that what we are eating is beneficial to our bodies. So we can potentially turn something into a healthy or unhealthy food depending on how it is prepared, how much is eaten, how often etc.
