Eyeballing food is when you aren't measuring out your foods. This can be okay if you are a more seasoned dieter. Josh and Sarah Bowmar have been dieting for about a decade, so for the most part they know how much they need for most foods. For example: peanut butter is very calorie dense. You could deter your entire day by not measuring or weighing your peanut butter. (Eating scales are sold on amazon).
Just because you are eating clean food does not mean you can’t eat too much of it. You still have to make sure you are not over-eating. You also have to be careful about the way you cook your healthy foods. For example: if you cook vegetables in a ton of oil, that will make them less healthy and there won't be as many vitamins and minerals. You will ll mostly just be getting fiber. To help avoid this, we recommend measuring your oils the same way we recommend eating other foods, as mentioned in tip #1.. Keep in mind that you can still gain weight even if you aren't eating carbs. When it comes to healthy fats, like avocado, nuts, and nut butter, you can eat too much and gain weight. The best way to eat those foods is to measure them out. Josh and Sarah recommend being the most careful with fruit, smoothies, and acai bowls because they can slow your progress and you could gain weight with all the sugar and calories. You have to be careful and measure that out as well. Just make sure you have boundaries when it comes to certain “healthy foods”.
Eating because you’re stressed is not a healthy way to cope. By doing this, you are combining insulin with cortisol, putting your body in a fat-storing state. . It will slow your progress. If you know you’re going to have a really stressful day Josh and Sarah Bowmar recommended intermittent fasting if it works for you. If you struggle with stress eating, try not to have any of the unhealthy foods that you would binge eat during this stressful time. It’s so much easier when it’s not in the house.
Let’s talk about BMR and TDEE. BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate)includes all the calories you burn while you sleep, walk, digest food, etc. These are all the calories your body needs to survive. TDEE (Total Daily Energy Expenditure) takes your activity into account, including work, gym, etc. There are a lot of apps that “keep track” of all of these things, BUT what they do is raise your calories up after you workout, which doesn’t actually need to happen. If you want to lose weight you have to be in that deficit instead of eating back those calories. Josh and Sarah Bowmar recommend using those apps to log your food, but don’t use their calculators or the numbers that they give you to lose weight. Josh and Sarah Bowmar also recommend getting a coach that can help with a diet plan. You could even use Josh and Sarah Bowmar’s program or just find someone that you trust!
Josh and Sarah Bowmar just want to help anyone and everyone reach their goals!
