Low Carb vs. Low Fat? Which One Is Right For You?

Are you confused about the right diet for you?

Keto?

Vegan?

WW?

Macros?

There‚Äôs a lot out there, but today I’m sharing information that may change your life forever.

In 2018, there was a 12-month study conducted and funded by researchers hoping to prove once and for all that the low carb diet was superior to a low fat diet when it came to weight loss results.

You can read the whole study here.

The results of the study found that “there was no significant difference in weight change between a healthy low-fat diet vs a healthy low-carbohydrate diet,” and that adherence was the greater determining factor in weight loss success.

So if it doesn’t matter which diet you follow, how do you decide which one is right for you?

First off, think about the diet that you want to be on.

You may say none, but let’s be real, in order to lose weight you must be in a caloric deficit, so you are going to have to change something.

Of all the things you could change, what are most willing to change?

When you think about your future– what appeals to you more?

Can you give up bread forever?

Are you willing to track your food?

What is the plan you are willing to follow– not just today, but one, five, ten years down the road?

The problem many people create is that they select a plan they can follow for a brief period of time to get quick results (a’ la HCG diet), but then once the diet is over, there is no sustainable way to maintain their weight loss.

The fastest way to lose weight is actually the slowest way to lose weight.

Losing half a pound per week on a sustainable plan is far superior to losing five pounds in a week, and then having no idea how to keep it off.

So let me tell you how you decide.

You choose.

You try.

You revise as neessary.

Many clients come to me totally capable of sticking to a plan six days a week, but when they get to Saturday they seem to go off the rails. Often times this isn’t because they are on the wrong plan, it’s because their head isn’t in the game.

If you want to go from being someone who is on a diet to someone who gets to get goal weight, then finding the plan you can stick with for good, AND being willing to do the (mindset) work to create consistent results is all you need to finally get to your goal.

Stop Losing Your S%!+ With Food!

Let’s be honest, if you’re like most of Americans, you are so excited about the 4th because finally you get to eat (or drink) your favorite treats that you only have once a year.

For many of us, it’s been more than a year since we’ve had a proper 4th, so I know where your brain is!

Now I want you to think about what would happen if you stuck perfectly to your meal plan all day long.

You may be thinking, Bo-Ring, right?

Now what if I told you to make your plan AND include your favorite thing.

What would happen?

Most likely you’d lose weight, and if you didn’t, you’d have a little blip on the scale and be back to normal in a day or two, right?

So, if we can enjoy our favorite things and still get results, why don’t we?

Because our brains are in the habit of telling us that if we’ve made a “mistake” on our plan, that the whole day is ruined.

But here’s the trick– including a treat on your plan, is still sticking to your plan.

In fact, when you have a plan that includes a treat and you DON’T have the treat, then you are OFF your plan (say whaaaatttt!!!!!??????)

What if this 4th of July, you didn’t make your favorite treat a catastrophe, and just treated it like a sneeze- here and then gone. What results could you create then?

So, here is my challenge to you, my Rebel…

This 4th of July I want you to include a treat of your choice on your plan. I don’t care if it’s two glasses of wine and five cupcakes. Think about what would be enjoyable for you.

What is the choice you will have wish you had made Monday morning?

Write out your plan TODAY!

Then I want you to post a pic of you enjoying your treat on Instagram and tag me @weight_loss-rebel so I can celebrate with you!

You’ll be celebrating, too because when you challenge yourself to try something new, you create a new version of yourself.

You become the woman who does what she says she will do– she is the woman who crushes goals!

So go create! And have a great 4th!
