Tender love and b….? No, today i’m talking about tastes, licks and bites.
An innocent little habit that could very well be the reason you’re not hitting your fat loss goals.
You’re being good writing your meals down in your journal, maybe you’re even tracking it with an app – but are you also calculating the little bites in between?
Licking the peanut butter of the spoon for your daughters sandwich, a nibble of cheese, a slice of chicken out of the fridge, a few french fries from your friend.
While seemingly small – if you do this a few times a day it can add up to a lot of calories uncounted for.
A lick of peanutbutter: 50 calories.
10 cashews: 90 calories
Bite of cheddar: 40 calories (10 grams)
A few french fries: 50-100 calories
See where we’re going here?
Here’s a challenge for you, starting today – write down these extra bites, if you don’t already -track them into your nutrition app (our favourite is Myfitnesspal) – and be surprised by the extra calories your consuming without being aware.
It’s always good to be mindful of what you’re putting into your body, this might be the next step to get you to where you want to be.
Have BLTs kept you from your weight loss goals?
