Why Counting Calories Doesn’t Work

I want to talk to anyone who thinks they must STARVE or eat barely any calories each day to lose weight.

Are you PISSED because you are hungry all the time and struggling to lose weight?

Do you get mad, overeat, and then hop back on the starve hamster wheel?

Well, you aren’t alone.

Girl, most of my clients come to me because they spent their whole life starting a diet Monday, losing very little or nothing by Friday, and then saying f*ck it all weekend.

The problem is this: you’ve spent years not listening to your body and now you’ve taught it to be a fat storing machine.

You starve your body refusing to eat when it’s hungry. Then, you ignore her when you are pissed and overeat.

Your body doesn’t now what the hell is going on so it gets stressed and confused.  It starts to hold onto fat because it feels under attack…BY YOU.

Ladies! Your BODY wants to thrive – not deprive. Your body LOVES you.

The body is smart. It’s goal is to keep you alive. And it will adapt to what you do.

You sit around for 30 years – your spine will curve.

You severely restrict  – your body will send big cravings for your favorite foods to get you to eat.

I challenge you today to ask this question: How can I work WITH my body today?

Are you willing to quit making HER the enemy?

If you trusted your body what would you be doing differently?

Do that.

    You hit the nail on the head. ‘Starving’ is when you’re genuinely hungry but won’t eat, and your body starts to fight back with the cravings and the holding onto fat. Only eating when hungry is a deliberate, planned act, and even if it lasts for a day or more, it won’t send your body into ‘starvation mode’ because you’re body isn’t asking for food.

    You could have titled this “Colie ate 1300 calories and could not lose weight.” It took a while to feel comfortable eating more than 700-900 calories a day and feel ok about it. I still have to stay on top of it or I slip back into it. Excellent blog, ma’am!

    Hi, I'm Corinne

    I lost 100 pounds and get what it is like to be overweight and feel defeated. I did a complete mental and physical transformation and now I teach women how to do the EXACT same thing. You can get started today with the free course.
