Top 5 reasons you should stop counting calories
A lot of people are using my fitness pal and other tracking apps to make sure they aren’t eating too much to make sure they hit a certain macro target or targets, which is incredible as people can see just how much they eat, what foods contain a lot more calories than they thought.
I can be a great way to teach you about balance and it’s how I start almost all my clients off on their nutrition journeys, however, the goal is to get them off from using it as soon as possible, here are the reasons why!
So there you have it, the pain of tracking is hard, Personal trainer will make it sound easy, we have time to do it, we eat similar things every day, we tend to have good habit building abilities, to get a Mum to track would be pointless, kids running around and fighting and slamming doors and all sorts a mum isn’t going to get her kids to sit down while she tracks, young kids don’t work like that unfortunately.
The apps can be incredible for some people but definitely shouldn’t be long term use, they are a great starting tool to be weaned off, so you know roughly how much you eat, roughly how much protein, carb and fat there is in foods, how many calories are in foods etc and used as a tool for learning.
Hope this helps! Make sure you check out the 3 ways I can help you get in shape and feel sexy and confident again!
