MONDAY. The start of a new week. And the start of a new attempt at being good on your diet, right?
In today’s dynamic and fast-paced world, sticking to a healthy diet is sometimes easier said than done. Most of us know the feeling.
Our Nutritionist Kat has written a blog all about why restarting your weight journey every Monday may not be the best idea and why you may be stuck in a cycle of giving up and restarting again every Monday...
Liking, following, and scrolling may not measure up to a healthy eating, but don’t sell social media short as a weight-loss tool: Sharing before-and-after photos on Instagram or Facebook might be the extra oomph you need to lose weight.
Here are a few tips to use social media in your advantage when it comes to weight loss:
👥 Engage with a Community! Studies have shown that engaging and interacting on social media can actually help foster the positive mood + sense of community that helps us push through challenges. Join our exclusive Facebook group for ShowMe.Fit members - where you can get ideas, tips and celebrate your progress.
🌟 Share Goals + Achievements! Sharing with others helps keep you accountable and what’s a better place to share than with a group of like-minded, well-connected people?
🤝 Empower + Encourage! Use the before/after’s as a chance to connect with someone who has successfully reached their goals and to empower them within the community! After all, who best to help you navigate your way to the finish line than someone who’s got the map?
And remember, social media is an important part of our lives, but don’t let it be your life!

“The first photo was taken in 2017 and the second one taken today. 8 stone lighter and honestly, I feel so much better and wearing a dress I never would of normally wore. Since losing the weight I'm more comfortable in clothing I'd never imagine wearing. Granted life gets hard and thing do get in the way but this is the thinest I've ever been and the healthiest I've felt. This is the best thing I've ever done! So for anyone who feels at a loss or like they’re not getting anywhere, please stick with it and you will get there. I promise!”
The conventional wisdom has always been that a calorie is a calorie is a calorie, and as long as you are expending more than you are taking in, you’ll lose weight.
But many people who have struggled with weight loss have long felt that there was something wrong with that point of view.
And they are right... ✔️
Eating 100 calories of high fructose corn syrup, for example, can have a different effect on your body than eating 100 calories of broccoli.
The trick for sustained weight loss is to ditch the foods that are packed with calories but don't make you feel full (like candy) and replace them with foods that fill you up without being loaded with calories (like vegetables).🥦
Food calories affect the body very differently depending on their source and the overall context in which they are consumed.
By choosing nutrient-packed, healthy recipes from ShowMe.Fit, you'll lose weight healthily without starving or putting yourself on calorie deficiency.

Sometimes the strongest food cravings hit when you're at your weakest point emotionally.
Do you eat when you're worried, bored, or lonely? Do you snack in front of the TV at the end of a stressful day? 😒
Recognizing your emotional eating triggers can make all the difference in your weight-loss efforts. If you eat when you're:
⚠️ Stressed – find healthier ways to calm yourself. Try yoga, meditation, or soaking in a hot bath. ⚠️ Low on energy – find other mid-afternoon pick-me-ups. Try walking around the block, listening to energizing music, or taking a short nap. ⚠️ Lonely or bored – reach out to others instead of reaching for the refrigerator. Call a friend who makes you laugh, take your dog for a walk, or go to the library, mall, or park—anywhere there're people. ... See MoreSee Less
