Saw this from @coach__carroll a while back and saved it. It’s absolutely relevant for many people who claim they can’t lose weight because of their ‘hormones’ or that they have a slow metabolism and simply can’t lose weight. Energy balance is not voodoo ladies and gentlemen. If you aren’t losing weight there is a reason… you aren’t in a caloric deficit. Now the reasons why you aren’t in a deficit can be numerous but typically a major reason is that people are drastically underestimating what they eat. Sure some people have slower metabolisms than usual, but for the most part people who report ‘slow’ metabolisms are also the WORST under-reporters of Caloric intake. Can’t lose weight? WEIGH AND LOG EVERY SINGLE THING THAT GOES IN YOUR MOUTH FOR ONE WEEK and see if things don’t change.
