Counting calories in and of itself accomplishes nothing, and is not vital to losing weight.
Count all the calories you want, but if you don’t know why you’re counting them, and if you’re not planning your food intake properly, you’ll never lose any weight.
And ironically, you also need to fully understand these same things to effectively lose weight without counting calories.
So, then, let’s look at 6 strategies for losing weight without counting calories.
1️⃣ Eat a high-protein breakfast Research has shown that simply eating eggs in the morning, as opposed to a grain-based breakfast like bagels, can help you lose weight. Why? Very simple: people that eat eggs for breakfast end up eating fewer calories at lunch, for the rest of the day, and according to one study, even for the next 36 hours.
2️⃣ Eat more protein in general When it comes to losing weight, protein is your best friend. Study after study after study has confirmed that a high-protein diet results in more fat loss than low-protein diets, even when eating until fullness, as well as less hunger, and a greater metabolic boost.
3️⃣ Eat plenty of low-calorie, fibrous foods Fibrous foods with a high water content, like most vegetables and some fruits, are great weight loss foods. Why? Because they’re filling, but without all the calories. Increasing fiber intake is a simple way to increase fullness, which leads to an overall reduced daily calorie intake.
4️⃣ Reduce your carb intake No, there’s nothing inherently fattening about carbohydrates, but restricting carbohydrate intake is a very easy way to significantly reduce total daily calorie intake.
5️⃣ Drink more water Research has shown that increasing water intake is an effective way of increasing fullness, thus helping you reduce your total calorie intake.
6️⃣ Get enough sleep Poor sleep messes with hormones related to hunger, causing an increase in hunger and cravings. So make sure you’re making time for adequate, good sleep.

Our National Vitamin C Day is coming up folks! Here is a little experimental video of how Skinceuticals antioxidants product protects your skin ✨💕
I think a true test of a vegan influencer is if you’d still follow them if they weren’t vegan... hear me out! 🌱💔 If the only thing in common with someone you have is what you don’t eat together you don’t have much in common. I still follow ex vegans because I found in them a friend, a person of kindness & flaws that I enjoy experiencing their life along with their picture show. Veganism is a short ride for most so if you don’t search deep for a connection in others you will be disappointed. One long vegan ride I am certain of is the trip to Mars 🚀 or any sustainable space adventure. Animal products are not efficient & pathogens in animals are responsible for untold human death and suffering. The 1918 Spanish Flu that killed 100million humans around the world originated on a farm in Kansas... one animal to human transmission and we nearly lost civilization. Did we learning anything from that??!? 😡🦠☠️ #veganforlife#sustainable#space#veganisthefuture#vegansofig#backedbyscience#meatfreemay

Guys & Gals ever wondered where ALL your WRINKLES come from??? 🤷♀️🤷♂️
Wrinkles are a natural part of the Ageing process. As people get older, their skin gets thinner, drier, less elastic & less able to protect itself from damage. This leads to wrinkles, creases, & lines on the skin 💯
Ladies... Do you find yourself asking, Could my Makeup choice be giving me Wrinkles??? 🤔🤔
Now it is being substantiated. Using makeup on the face, particularly oil based ones can clog the skin pores leading to acne & pimples. It can also aggravate fine lines below & around eyes, which is a sign of ageing. Talc based make up products when used, cause dryness of skin & early & more rapid wrinkling 😱😱
My Words of Wisdom this Wednesday - Find yourself a Good Skincare Regime & Make Up Products that DON’T Contain Any NASTIES, Chemicals & do your Research FIRST before you just buy the cheapest product on the shelf, because sometimes they are doing more HARM then You know.. ✅✅
You Don’t purchase a Car that doesn’t START - So Why Would you purchase Skincare that Doesn’t deliver results??? 🙌🙌
If you’re interested to know Where my Wrinkles have Gone please feel free to show this post some love ❤️⬇️
Over the past couple of years my fitness goals have been all over the place, the one thing I never had was balance and consistency when it came to nutrition. I picked up a lot of bad habits during competing, I knew how to lose weight fast but in the worst ways. I was that person who was “all about the fit life” or I would be binge eat and not care- you know the whole cheat meal leading to cheat days leading to feeling horrible then “getting back on it with clean eating”.
All those terms are stupid to be honest. There’s no such thing as good or bad food. When you become knowledgeable about what you put into your body and how it works for you, you become in control. I no longer reward myself with food or call them cheat/treat meals, it’s unnecessary. Fuel your body with the proper nutrients and if you want a donut/etc, eat a donut. Don’t think of it as a reward nor a punishment.
I’m eating more calories than ever, feeling stronger and I feel like I have earned a happy balance when it comes to nutrition. Working with @rpstrength and utilizing their products have done wonders for me and it can be for you if you put in the time to learn and apply it.💪🏼 Leave any questions in the comment section and be sure to use ANNEPHUNG at checkout to save.😊 #annephungfitness#annesarmy#guidesbyannephung#teamRPstrength#RPstrength#backedbyscience#nutrition#knowledgeispower#sustainablehealth
