😱THAT IS SO MUCH FOOD‼️
I can’t tell you how often I hear this, when onboarding new clients. We discuss the process of finding their true maintenance calories, and working towards a baseline of 1800-2200 calories per day. (Or more!!!!)
Most women come to me undernourished & over stressed. Many have been attempting a calorie deficit (and typically over-exercising) for 90% of their “fitness journey” meaning that their bodies are in a stressed out, down-regulated state. They are often skipping breakfast, or working through lunch, and then find themselves having an evening melt down followed up by a free frawl of whatever they can eat the easiest and quickest.
Intentional nourishment is one of the most fundamental aspects of my practice.
🤷🏻♀️How to get started?👇🏻
🥭Nourish our bodies vs. restrict from our bodies
🥭Provide enough calories from a balance of protein, carbs and fat
🥭Take deep breaths
🥭Be patient, focus on metabolic health > weight loss.
🥭Make stress reduction and down time (doing “nothing”) a priority
🥭Eat frequently & consistently
🥭Increase daily movement (NEAT) 🔥

I made this by calculating foods & brands I use often in my fitness pal!
