It’s Not Your Fault
June 24, 2016
I promise it isn’t
But you need to take action to fix it
Yesterday I spoke about eating disorders, and how they are caused by crushing social pressure and worst of all…
This world is filled with crappy advice leading to eating disorders like…
“You can’t ever eat carbs you will get fat”
“Don’t eat after 6pm you will get fat”
“Fat will make you fat”
“You have to starve yourself to lose weight”
“If you mess up you will get fat”
The list goes on
And even people in authority positions delivering in my opinion negligible advice
I had a doctor tell a client that 300 calories a day was more than enough for her to be healthy
ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!
Yes, I will go on a rant here,
So be prepared
I wanted to yell at this doctor, a normal adult women requiers around 2000 calories a day to maintain her current size
So dropping down even just 200 calories + exercise will start to cause fat loss
(I’m not a fan of the calorie counting for general fat loss, but just so you have an idea)
So 300 calories is an excessive low amount of food, to the point where if you can maintain this for a long time, it will crash your metabolism and you will end up putting on weight, plus you will not be a healthy person.
Prone to fainting and vomiting.
This doctor should not be able to practice med, if they are giving advice like this.
Sorry for my rant
And no I am not alone on this one, I asked nutritionist, other doctors and trainers on this one to be sure I wasn’t over reacting.
Every single one, outraged.
But I’ve gotten off topic
My point is, it’s not your fault that your scared of dieting
If you have no idea what to eat or where to start
Even authority figures are leading you down the wrong path
So it is ok,
We are going to remedy this
So stay tunned,
Until next time,
