My One Week Calorie Counting Experiment - Expectations vs. Reality
If you've been following my fitness journey over on my second account @shinebright - then you know that I recently started counting calories for the first time in my life.
I have always been soooo resistant to the idea because I hate rules and I thought this would feel really constricting ... not to mention be totally time consuming and annoying.
Since I've been at a bit of a fitness platue lately - I thought I would try this out, even though I already eat pretty clean every day.
Boy.. was this week eye opening!!
In this video I share a bit of my journey with weight over the last few years and then start digging into the actual experiment. I list out my main expectations I had about what counting calories would be like, and how it's actually been. I share tons of photos and screenshare videos along the way - and so I hope you guys find it helpful!
I also share my best tips for those who are just starting out and share my future plans for whether I am going to continue counting or not. This video is pretty long - but you can skip to 6:29 if you want to skip my story and get straight into the expectations vs reality segment!
What has your relationship been with counting calories? If you've tried it - was it helpful for you, or did it just make you too obsessive about food? It's been really interesting to chat with my friends about this because almost everyone has a different relationship with this topic.
I really hope you guys enjoy the video and I can't wait to chat with you below!
