I barely EAT, so why am I overweight?

“I don’t get it! Do skinny people EAT NOTHING!?”

This is a common misconception, and downward spiral that many overweight people can get themselves into. If this is you, or someone you know – I highly recommend you read on, and meet Heyley Watt:

Talk about incredible, brave, inspiring, phenomenal – any words that you can think of that mean something positive can describe Heyley Watt and her courage to allow me to interview her while she is on a journey of transformation to become the BEST version of herself. (This interview was recorded in September 2016.)

In helping more and more people that reach out to me about their struggles and weight loss journeys, a common trend I am noticing is that many people are reducing their food intake in an effort to lose weight, and then wonder why they aren’t losing any weight even though they are ‘eating’ less. For some reason we forget about calories in the liquids we consume. I notice many people may say that they don’t eat breakfast, however if they drink 2 coffees with 2 or 3 teaspoons of sugar and some milk each morning, this is equivalent to a meal in calories.

We can sometimes tell ourselves that we aren’t ‘too bad’ because that makes us feel better. If we tell this to ourselves, and if we can believe this, with this exact same power, we can tell ourselves positive things to help change our habits.

What is one simple change you could implement this week?
