A lot of people come to me frustrated and discouraged. They’ve been making better choices, eating less and exercising more, but they still aren’t losing weight.
Eating less, though, isn’t necessarily the trick.
A protein bar may seem like a better option than cookies, but some protein bars have just as much sugar.
The trick is eating intentionally.
One of the first steps I take when getting my clients on the path to proper nutrition is having them track their food in MyFitnessPal. MyFitnessPal allows them input their food’s nutritional information and see how it compares to their daily goals. It seems really simple, but there is something really powerful about seeing what you’re eating.
It’s amazing how surprised people are when they see exactly how much sugar is in that protein bar.
