How I Lost Weight 124 Pounds Without counting a Single Calorie.
Counting calories can be an easy way to get a handle on how much you’re eating, and it’s helped lots of women lose weight. But it can be exhausting to jot down every last bite. “Just focusing on the number can get all of us, especially women, hung up. And that can make anyone feel out of control,” says Isabel Smith, R.D.
Instead of calorie counting, Smith teaches clients to fill their plates with 25 to 30 percent carbs (like whole grains), 25 percent protein, and 40 to 50 percent non-starchy vegetables. The idea is to eat as many low-calorie, filling options, like veggies, as you want and limit others that have more calories per serving, says Smith.
“It is possible to lose weight by counting calories,” says Karen Ansel, R.D. “But it doesn’t teach you to listen to your body’s hunger and satiety signals, especially since we don’t have the same calorie needs every day.” If you run five miles one day, you need more calories to fuel your body than if you sit on the couch watching football the next.
“I TOOK A SELFIE A DAY.”
“I got a gym membership at the constant nagging of my older sisters and best friend. On my first day, I did 60 minutes on the elliptical, and then I sent a picture to my best friend. I started taking a picture a day without really planning to. In my first photo, I didn’t recognize myself, so I decided to take a picture every day until I saw a person I recognized. I soon began tracking my weight loss through the pictures, and it was a great way to keep motivated. Over the past 12 years, I’d counted calories and points, but nothing seemed to actually work and be maintainable. This time, I lost weight by swapping processed foods for lots of veggies, lean meats, like chicken and fish, and whole grains, like brown rice. I also made frozen, chocolate-covered banana bites to curb my sweet tooth! I never went to bed hungry. After six months, I lost 80 pounds. Just shy of the one-year mark, I was down to 189 pounds. I’ve still struggled with binge eating since then. But I’ve spent the remainder of this year focusing on eating a healthy balanced diet. I achieved all this by seeking out happiness, not constricting myself through the latest fads. My focus now is living a life of happiness, acceptance, and adventure.” —Justine McCabe, lost 124 pounds.
“I STOPPED EATING LATE-NIGHT CARBS.”
“With a new baby, nighttime was the only time I had to myself, and it usually consisted of making myself carb-heavy meals, like pastas, bread, potatoes, and pizza after 10 p.m. But I started my new lifestyle in November 2015. I wanted to lose fat and build a healthy lifestyle without the restriction of counting everything I ate. So I began starting my day off with a huge protein smoothie and eating lots of fruit, veggies, whole grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds throughout the day. But since I love food, I don’t avoid packaged and processed foods all the time. I also started following Kayla Itsines’ Bikini Body Guide (BBG) from home. Since being a mom of three little ones keeps me pretty busy, I do three, 30-minute high-intensity interval workouts a week. I also sprint or jump rope at least three times a week for 20 to 25 minutes and fit in at least three sessions of 30 to 60 minutes of speed walking on the treadmill with the highest incline. Since I struggled to stay motivated with my workouts, I started my Instagram account for inspiration and accountability. After about a year and a half, I went from 166 pounds to about 136 pounds.” —Maggie Fierro, lost 30 pounds
