FACT: You Can Eat Carbs And Lose Weight

August 1, 2021 | Nutrition

 

Shocking that I said this right??

 

But its true.

 

Too many people and some health professionals swear by doing extreme diet restriction when it comes to losing weight and usually carbs are the first thing they get rid of for a lot of them which does have health benefits.  However, by bringing balance to someone's diet with the right amount of portioning every meal then you can lose weight without completely giving up carbs.

 

One of my clients saw another personal trainer and didn’t lose a single pound in one year of working with them.  With the meal plan I came up with for him, he lost 23lbs in the first 6 weeks of working with me(he also went on vacation during this 6 week time frame!!). 

 

And guess what??

 

He didn’t give up carbs!!

 

How’d he do it?

 

He strength trained 3x/week with some light cardio on other days,  portioned his meals according to the plan I had for him(which I would adjust if necessary), had a 200-300 calorie deficit each day, and got 7-9 hours of sleep each night.

 

That's it.

 

So if you are a person trying to lose weight, don’t think you’ll need to scratch out all carbs to lose weight because it's simply not true.  

 

If you feel that you are at a sticking point and want to lose weight,  reach out to me and I’d be happy to help!
