Weight Loss Triangle

Weight Loss Triangle

After numerous consultations, we here at Meals of Steel acknowledge that many of our clients embark on a new lifestyle primarily to adjust their weight. And most commonly, to lose weight. With that in mind, we want to share with you the 3 most important principles that we focus on when speaking to any client about weight management.

Calories In vs Calories Out

First and foremost, the most fundamental factor in weight management is Calories In vs Calories Out. To put simply, someone trying to lose weight will have to ensure they are taking in *less* Calories than they are expensing. So if you are someone looking to lose weight, you have to be aware you need to pick your meal frequency, foods, and portion sizes in such a way that ensures you are eating less Calories than what your body burns daily.

Food Choices

As mentioned above, your overall Calorie intake will determine if you lose weight. In theory, you can lose weight on a diet of fast foods and soda, so long as you still stay in a Caloric deficit. However, that is not what happens in real life. Our clients who had been the most successful at weight loss had been those who eat the most amount of healthy whole foods. Essentially, the food choices most conductive for helping you stay in a Calorie deficit are generally foods that are minimally processed, high in protein, high in fiber, and low in Calories. So throw out the desserts and chips, and stock the fridge with fruits & vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains

Consistency

As you may have probably heard before, the best diet is the one you can stick to. So before you start any new diet, truly ask yourself, “is this something I can stick with for the long term?”. So rather than trying any extreme diets that are very restrictive, try instead gradual changes that you can sustain and build on for the long term. As long as you can consistently eat healthier and stay in a Calorie deficit day after day, results are inevitable. And if you would like us to help you keep consistent, keep an eye out for our future subscription service coming soon.
