Do you know you could be thwarting your weight loss by eating too little?
The 3 biggest weight loss mistakes:
- Eating too few calories. Apart from potentially causing serious health problems eating too few calories slows down the body’s metabolism and puts it into conservation mode by holding on to fat!
- Low carbs, no carbs. Fibrous, healthy carbs give our bodies the micro-nutrients essential for every day functions. Don’t dismiss them just eat healthy ones – fruit and veg.
- The benefits of protein: protein has a high satiety, keeping you fuller for longer; it maintains muscle and therefore increases your metabolism; Lean muscle is made of proteins – so eat them; It has the highest thermic effect – meaning you burn more calories digesting it; And it promotes fast recovery from training – allowing you to train more frequently.
