How to have a social life and lose weight
Updated: Apr 1
Dieting and socializing 🍹🍸🥗🍕🍺🎉
When going through a dieting phase, eating out and socializing shouldn't be getting in the way of you losing weight each week. Let me show you how all my clients and I have done it and not missed out on a single moment with family and friends.
Firstly let's start thinking of weight loss across seven days and not just 24 hours.
For me to lose 1-2 pounds at the end of the week, I need to be eating 2500 calories daily, now multiply this by seven days, and it comes to 17,500 calories for the week.
This Saturday I'm going to London for a friends birthday, and I still want to be on track with my goals of losing weight come Monday morning. So I planned to borrow around 15% of my calories from all the other days and use them on Saturday and not feel guilty from an overindulged weekend come Monday morning.
Monday 2000 kcal
Tuesday 2000 kcal
Wednesday 2000 kcal
Thursday 2000 kcal
Friday 2000 kcal
Saturday 5500 - Look at all these calories I get to have 😊. That's days eating, plenty of alcohol and finish it all off with a dirty kebab. 🍻🍹🍻🥙
Sunday 2000 kcal
Total calories weekly calories 17,500kcal, keeping me a deficit to lose 1-2 pounds.
There's a fantastic app called @myfitnesspal that you can log all your food into which will show your daily calories. For some foods, you will need to weigh out. A lot of my clients are shocked by just how much calories are in particular foods and how many calories they are actually eating. I recommend that everyone does this for at least a month, you’ll get much better food awareness with calories in foods which will help with food choices and portion control.
To achieve a successful transformation, you have to educate yourself on all things nutrition for long-lasting change.
