Awesome KC! It always amazes me how it's so easy to some people to lose weight if they just take in less calories than they use, and correctly time when they take them. I'm not saying losing weight is easy... The convenience of junk food and only eating 2-3 times a day is very common and poses a tough habit to break. Here's a real story for you...
A girl I work with asked me why she couldn't lose weight no matter how hard she tried. She said she had been dieting for 4 weeks, power walked 3 times a week for 30 minutes and still had lost a grand total of TWO pounds. She's a big girl... Big like 'could lose 100lbs and could lose more' big. I asked her to track what she ate all day for a week, how much of it... Down to the ounce of water.
We went over her list, and even though she had the right concept... 6 meals spaced out... Her timing and calorie count were horrible.
"you ate 200 calories worth of wheat crackers for a snack"
her - 'but they're whole wheat, they're healthy and unsalted'
"it's 200 calories."
her - "I only had 12!"
"it's still 200 calories.'
she had no idea.
I got her to do her walking in the morning four times a week before breakfast, Drink a gallon of water a day and not eat anything after 7pm. Voilà, 13lbs in 5 weeks.
Now you get to have fun backpedalling a bit when you have to find the maintenance point!
