Can't Lose Weight? You're Probably Eating More Than You Think.

No, your metabolism isnโ€™t ๐˜ฃ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ, you arenโ€™t a ๐˜ด๐˜ฑ๐˜ฆ๐˜ค๐˜ช๐˜ข๐˜ญ ๐˜ด๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ๐˜ง๐˜ญ๐˜ข๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ, youโ€™re simply human.โฃ

People are notoriously incorrect at estimating how much they are eating. โฃ

โฃ

One seminal study on this topic found that obese adults who claimed to be eating less than 1200 Calories per day and not be losing weight were underreporting by nearly 50%! Other studies have found that normal weight people, athletes included, underestimate by an average of 10โ€“20%.โฃ

This isnโ€™t always due to poor tracking on your end, either. The food databases you use could simply be inaccurate. โฃMaybe you donโ€™t chew your nuts, so you donโ€™t digest them as well as the food database assumes. Maybe you eat your potatoes cold, so they have more resistant starch and less metabolizable energy than your food tracker says.โฃ
