The Weight Loss Trick To End All Diet Fads
This is for every person that is basically over reading about weight loss tricks and diets to help you lose weight or reach your "New Year Resolution".
So I was trolling on Facebook when I came across an article from Thrillist, that had a triple cheeseburger and a caption "The Simplest Weight Loss Trick". Any weight loss trick involving a triple cheeseburger is one I want to be involved in so naturally I clicked it.
What's the trick? It's literally 'learning what a serving size is'. Easy, simple and actually so true. At first I laughed because it was totally obvious, but then I took a minute and really thought about it.
I have been "dieting" (as in I failed miserably) and I was on this ridiculous no-carb high protein diet. While this may work for some, I was left hungry and eating double on the weekend when hanging with friends.
BUT ever since using My Fitness Pal, I began tracking my meals. So it forced me to really track my calories and KNOW what a serving size was...
Eventually my body naturally adjusted, so I eat a serving size of my meals, and still get to indulge! Sure, you won't drop weight super fast, but slow and steady wins the race right?
Personally, I prefer this method. You don't go crazy, and it's less guilt-tripping. I love food too much to feel sad for 'breaking my diet'.
And then if you do cheat a bit, forget about it, life goes on! There's always the next day.
