TRUTH BOMB: ‘Just eat intuitively’ doesn’t work for everyone.
If you’re anything like me or many of my clients, wine and chocolate are two things that definitely ‘spark joy’ in your day. If it were up to us, wine would be protein-packed and chocolate would have zero calories.
Am I right?
But, sadly, this isn’t the case and so we have to be a bit mindful around how much we consume.
Some coaches will tell you to just ‘eat intuitively’.
That you don’t need to track your intake because your body will tell you when enough is enough. And sure, that can definitely work for someone who is fully aware of the macro and calorie counts of food. I mean, after all these years I can definitely look at a dinner plate and tell you the approximate macros (protein, fat, carb) on that plate.
But most of my clients can’t. Yet. And that’s okay.
That’s also why intuitive eating doesn’t always work.
Knowing your macro allowances, then following up with accurate tracking is essential if you want to see weight loss results.
Just like you use a gauge to help you know how much gas is in the tank of your car, tracking macros helps you know how much you’ve eaten in a meal or a day. You don’t leave your fuel level to chance, don’t do that with your weight loss results either.
