It doesn’t matter if you eat three meals per day or 5.
If you eat at night you won’t automatically store that food as fat.
Carbohydrates can be eaten any time of day.
Intermittent fasting is not a magical solution to weight loss.
Neither is keto.
There is not one perfect macro or calorie prescription for everyone.

You will lose weight if you are in a calorie deficit.
But it’s also probably a pretty good idea to drink a lot of water and eat a lot of vegetables, not because you need them to lose weight, but because they’re great for your body and your health.
The goal of fat loss should be to eat as much as possible while still losing weight.
These are all lessons I wish I learned a whole lot sooner on my journey.
I tried Paleo.
I cut out carbs.
I desperately tried to stop eating by 7pm.
I ate 6 mini meals a day.
I fasted until 2pm.
I counted calories, points, macros, containers.
I took pills.
I drank shakes.
I tried ketones.
𝐀𝐧𝐝 𝐠𝐮𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐤𝐞𝐝 𝐛𝐞𝐬𝐭…
Become ruthlessly consistent with tracking my food and counting macros.
Fueling my body with a whole lot of good for me foods.
Allowing myself the foods I loved.
And most importantly, removing many of the food rules I always believed to be true.
It’s not one perfect solution for everyone but that is what worked for me.
The only way to know what works for you is to try. And fail. Probably a lot.
But promise me this… stop believing in the quick fixes, detoxes, and magic tips.
