DON’T SABOTAGE YOUR EFFORTS!

September 16, 2022

The weekend is a great time to relax and catch up on needed sleep and housework.  Many also misrepresent the weekend as a time to let loose in their dietary habits.

Here’s a great visual representation of what might go wrong when you “LET LOOSE” on the weekends.  

To lose 1lb in a week, you must restrict your current calorie intake by 3500 for that week.

400 calories deficit x 4 days = -1600 calories 

2000 calorie surplus on the weekend = +2000 calories

TOTAL of 400 calories = no weight loss!  

Weight/fat loss is a lot like math.  If you’re intaking more calories than you are expending, your body stores the excess for a rainy day.  To lose weight, you have to get your body to dip into those stores by eating less, exercising more, or both.  ​

The 80/20 rule can & should apply when you want to maintain your weight, but NOT if you’re looking to shed some unwanted fat!

CONSISTENCY is key, even on Saturday!  It’s all about perspective!

DON’T SABOTAGE YOUR EFFORTS & HARD WORK!
