Who wouldn't kill for their favorite piece of chocolate cake or your favorite pint of ice cream all curled up in your favorite spot watching your favorite movie or television show. I know I would. Even though you're probably thinking OMG I have to give all that up for my infamous six pack of abs. I am here to tell you THAT IS A LIE!!!
First off yes you can still eat ice cream and loose fat. Fat loss happens simply by staying in a calorie deficit. If you read the back of any food label you will read the Daily Value of how much nutrients are in a serving of food. The percentages tell us how many calories contribute to our diet. The DV ( daily value) used for general nutrition is about 2,000 calories a day. So the typical normal human should consume 2,000 calories a day.
Reading food labels will save you the disappointment when tracking your progress. Aiming at a simple nutrition goal to stay within 2,000 calories a day is a great way to start ( need help meal planning RSVP for fitness therapy 101: meal planning). When you decide to eat your favorite sweet cravings add the amount of calories per serving and determine if it's worth eating ; or do you have space within your 2,000 calories to consume it. This is how we notice if we have been living our lives overeating !!! FYI this always throw my clients' for a loop; when they start to notice how much they eat versus how much food they really are consuming. Yes we must document the bad habits !!!
Substitute fresh and natural sugars !! Eating fresh fruit or turning them into juices can help with your sweet tooth. Not only will you satisfy your cravings but you will also be nourishing your body with natural minerals and vitamins ( shop my detox teas and smoothie recipes). Remembering to document your natural sugars as well will help you stay within the 2,000 calorie mark. While this may seem easy, remember all changes come with discipline eventually we will cut out the process sugars COMPLETELY but in the meantime these hacks should work and guaranteed to get the scale moving.
