Breaking the myth no12: I eat 1200 calories daily but I can't lose weight.
It's not enough to just eat 1200 or 1500 calories per day. What matters the most is the type of the calories.
Here are two examples to understand the difference.
If you eat once a day at Mc Donald's, burger with fries and a coca cola
✅ You get 1200 to 1400 calories with only one meal
❌ You get trans fat, carbohydrates, protein, sugar.
➡️ You might lose weight but you may feel your clothes tighter.
This happens because you don't think of the type of the calories you consume. You see the scale goes down because you lose water BUT you see your clothes getting smaller because you gain fat!
Now think of yourself, eating 5 times a day, veggies, fruit, chicken or fish, potatoes or rice. By the end of the day
✅ you'll get 1200- 1400 calories
✅ You will get good fat, carbohydrates, protein
✅ You will lose weight AND fat because you prioritise to add good elements to your system.
➡️ If you combine nutrition and exercise, you may see your scale stable but your clothes bigger. This happens because you lose fat and you build muscles.
