If you're weighing in today and wondering why the scale seems off, here are a few reasons why:
When we consume a lot of carbs, sugar, salt or alcohol our bodies can hold onto water weight for DAYS! Even though you may feel like it's been a while since New Year's Eve, your body may not have released its water weight yet.
You may feel like you've been on track for a while, but remember that you just got through two months of holiday celebrations, and all those extra treats can really add up. Take it slow, you're on the right path!
Weight can fluctuate from day to day depending on your hydration status, internal swelling (hello, leg day!) etc., don't let the numbers throw you. Stay on track!
If you're thinking about cutting back on the sugar this year, here are three reasons why you should:
When sugar is a regular part of your diet, it makes it impossible for your body to break down fat! In fact, you're likely turning all of that sugar into fat.
Sugar accelerates aging, causing you to look older faster.
When you consume sugar, your blood sugar spikes and then plummets which leaves you feeling unnecessarily tired and cranky.
During these cold days, there is nothing better than a warm hearty bowl of roasted squash, sauteed kale, and spicy sausage.
