I’m frequently asked how many calories I consume a day. It’s important to realize that individual caloric needs differ based on a variety of factors. Knowing my own personal calorie requirements won’t necessarily help you find yours. Here is a chart from Instagram Fitness that you might find useful! Keep in mind that adjustments might need to be made depending on your goals and each days activity levels! :)
Always REMEMBER - Your body needs calories just to function. In other words, your heart pumping, your food digesting, your brain thinking, your lungs breathing, your hands typing, you BEING ALIVE… that all takes CALORIES. When you STARVE yourself, all you are doing is harming yourself and your body’s natural functions! Starving yourself is NOT the way to a fit, healthy body!
I have something like this that i was going to make for you guys, but here it is already made!
… Or 5 ;)
A little something I came up with. I really like to live by this. Your worth is not measured by the numbers on the scale or the size of your clothes. It’s measured by the smiles you give people, the tears you’ve shed, the long nights spent talking with the ones you love, the butterflies you’ve felt, the very air you breathe. Lose weight to gain health. Protect your soul with a strong and nourished body.
Let your soul shine through.
