Stephanie Sanzo is a Geelong personal trainer, and Instagram-famous fitness guru. She shared three myths about nutrition and weight loss that you should stop believing in order to reach your health and wellness goals.
Stephanie dispelled the notion that it is possible to eat anything you like as long as your training hard.
She stated that weight management depends on the amount of calories in addition to calories out.
The fitness expert wrote that weight loss is possible regardless of how hard you exercise.
In her post, Stephanie first busted the myth that you can eat whatever you want as long as you train hard – ‘No matter how much exercise you do .. weight gain is still possible if your calorie intake exceeds your calorie expenditure,’ the fitness star wrote
However, Stephanie said it’s important not to just focus on weighing up your calorie intake versus what you burn off at the gym.
You should pay close attention to macronutrients. These include fat, carbs and protein. They all have a unique role to play in your body.
“You can eat the same number of calories as someone else, but your body will look and feel completely different depending on how your macronutrients are broken down (which is why it is important to take into account BOTH calories and macronutrients),” she said.
Stephanie stated that it was important not just to focus on calories versus how many you’ve burned at the gym. Instead, you need to pay more attention to the different types of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins that each play in your body.
Stephanie also stated that you cannot indulge or relax on weekends or occasionally without losing weight.
She wrote that “Your body does not reset” each day, and it doesn’t forget all of the calories or food you ate in the previous days.”
“This is the reason it’s better to keep track of your calories over a week basis than on a daily basis. It’s because one day could drastically change your average calorie intake.
Stephanie stated, “You can’t indulge in occasional or weekend pleasures without making weight loss efforts more difficult.” She also said that it is best to have weekly goals rather than daily.
‘So if you are going to indulge – it’s important to do so without exceeding your daily or week calorie requirements,’ she finished.
Stephanie’s post got hundreds of comments from people who were eager to adopt her tips.
“Always amazing!” It was inspiring and motivational, wrote one user.
‘I track my calories and macros daily, I’ve never thought about it on a weekly basis, especially when it comes to my cheat meal. Thank you,’ replied a second.
