“I Don’t Eat That Much And Still Can’t Lose Weight”

When I do consults with people I often hear the phrase,” I don’t eat that much and still can’t lose weight.”

They are confused why it seems like they hardly eat anything and struggle to lose weight.

The thing is when they say they don’t eat “that much” they actually are eating “that much”.

They are eating “that much” for energy balance for their body size and activity level.

Or they would be losing weight.

What are they comparing “that much” to.

They don’t even know what they are comparing it to.

Just because they FEEL that they aren’t eating that much that doesn’t really mean anything.

It actually means zero unless they are tracking.

Studies show that people underestimate how much they eat and overestimate how much they burn through activity.

Big shocker.

If you aren’t losing weight even though you are hardly eating “that much” then look at creating more of a deficit through diet, exercise, or preferably a combination of both.
