Hey everybody, we’re back and better than ever. I’ve been traveling nonstop lately so I have not cooked anything original for a few weeks. A fun little post I thought I could write though is about the importance of calorie deficits when trying to lose weight.
So what is a calorie deficit? Well it’s actually rather simple. Living in a calorie deficit means you’re expending more calories than you are consuming. This leads to guaranteed weight loss regardless of the foods you’re eating.
A pretty famous diet that has gained a lot of traction lately is called “If it fits your macros” or IIFYM for short. This plan means that as long as certain foods fit your daily macro-nutrient intakes you can consume it.
Learning about macros is something that eludes me to a certain degree as I am not into tracking my food that strictly, but it can be an effective way to understand your body best. If you’re trying to lose weight the only fool proof strategy is to figure out how many calories you should be eating each day through trial and error, and then stick to a deficit of a few hundred per day!
