A random fitness post by Cambridge personal trainer Callie Durbrow
Have you seen that website, People of Walmart? I don’t usually go on sites like that but this one is funny as hell. They have a featured creature of the day and then you can literally go and look at the pictures broken down from each state and there are captions that people come up with to describe what’s going on.
Maybe growing up in Vermont and seeing these Walmart creatures, it’s more funny to me but either way if you want a quick laugh then go check it out.
Okay, so that wasn’t really the only thing I wanted to share with you today. I know you’re thinking “I came over to this blog to look at pictures of Walmart creatures? Lame.” Or maybe that’s funny and I should do more….you tell me.
Anyway, I have one simple thing for you today but it was kind of eating at me all day yesterday. People are self-sabotaging. It’s that simple. You train hard and you “eat healthy” so why aren’t you losing fat?
Walking through the door of the gym is NOT the only answer. That does not give you a free pass to just eat whatever you want because you work out.
If your training is in order and you’re not losing fat you need to look at your nutrition.
If your nutrition flat out sucks, you will NOT lose fat. I don’t care what you say, your body is not different than any other person on this planet and you can’t out train a bad diet. If you find that you actually can, come talk to me because I want to see this genetic freak with my own eyes.
Get your nutrition dialed in. You might think you’re eating healthy but upon further inspection you probably are not.
If you need a cool resource then check this out…..
You can create an account and track all of your daily food intake. This data base has literally EVERY food, so just type it in and search. It also breaks down macro-nutrients (carbs, protein and fat) for each day so you can see what you’re over on. I think their protein requirements are a little low, so if you’re over on that then that’s okay. I’m not a big calorie counter but if you want to lose fat then you do have to create a deficit and this will help you track it and also help you see where your problem areas are.
Just be honest and put everything out there 🙂
