Guys, LISTEN UP! There is a BIG difference between eating healthy and starving yourself. You really don't have to just eat "lettuce and chicken"😩🙅🏻unexciting foods and constantly think you have to eat very little every day to get “skinny." So whats the big problem with this pattern of eating?
❌You’ll feel tired and lethargic 😴
❌You’ll feel weak.
❌You’ll feel constantly hangry (and more likely to reach for those donuts later)🌝
❌Skin and hair problems
❌Constipation and digestive issues😯
❌No variety. Different colors = different nutrients! no one food as all the ingredients we need so you MUST eat a VARIETY of nutrient dense foods! 🌈
❌Your metabolism will take a beating. Its like telling your body you’re starving which will slow down your metabolism.
❌Hormonal disruptions & imbalances including hunger hormones and thyroid hormones.
❌Inability to gain muscle & lose fat. 😫
With not enough “fuel” your body will start to eat away at your muscles for energy rather than digging in to your fat stores. Your body thinks it needs to store those for later. This is why people are often seen as “skinny fat.”
❌Sleep problems (prob due to uneven blood sugar levels).
Let’s stop depriving ourselves of what we NEED to be healthy and happy!
Try new foods >> Get Creative >> eat the rainbow🌈🍱
💪🏻Pro tip: figure out your RMR (Resting Metabolic Rate - the calories you burn at rest a day & what you need to function properly) and make sure you are getting at MINIMUM that number. More on that topic soon! Happy weekend!
