Go ask ten random people which of these meals is best for losing weight (without showing the calories), and I'm 100% confident it would go 10-0 for the whole wheat peanut butter & jelly sandwich...
-
Yes, PB&J's are delicious 🤤, but they also come with a shitload of opportunity for sneaky calories...
-
For one, bread calories can vary depending on the brand used. The Arnold Whole Grain bread 🍞 used in this comparison (~100 Cals per slice) is a classic diet culprit. It “healthy” and “whole wheat,” but has more calories than most white bread!
-
Then there's the actual PB & jelly... and honestly, I was being reserved with my quantities used for this comparison. Most people aren't meticulously measuring out 32g (2 tbsps) of peanut butter or jelly...
- 
They're usually scooping out whatever looks good, licking the spoon clean 🥄, and then sneaking an extra finger swing before screwing on the lid.
- 
Cuz peanut butter finger swipe calories don't count.... right? 😉
-
[Just wait. There will be folks in the comments who say 1.5 servings of PB is a lot... those are the spoon lickin’ finger swipers I’m talking about! ]
-
So does this mean you should eat the Pizza 🍕? Well, no. Not if you don't want to...
- 
But if your friends or coworkers invite you out to Pizza Hut for lunch, and you say no because you're “on a diet”... only to sit alone at your desk and slam down the same number of calories from your organic whole wheat peanut butter & jelly sandwich...
-
See what I mean?
- 
Personally, I'd enjoy the time with friends, order a big ass side salad, and make the pizza fit into my daily calorie target 👌

PS. I’ll take my free pizza anytime now, @pizzahut

🔥FOODS THAT HELP YOU BURN FAT🔥 — 👯‍♂️Tag a Friend!👯‍♀️ - Shady fitness marketers love to use the phrase "Fat Burning" to highlight foods or spices that *supposedly* targets body fat just by eating/sprinkling/drinking it... - The truth, though, is that there's no single ingredient or food that's going to magically melt away fat 🔮❌. Believe me, If there was, I'd be the first person in line to buy it 🙋‍♂️ - However, while no foods directly burn fat, there ARE some foods that can help indirectly... - For example, foods higher ⬆️ in fiber, water, and protein help fill you up and keep you full for fewer total calories — both of which will lead to better fat loss results 👍 – Think about it 🤔... what's going to fill you up more (and keep you full longer): - ▶️ 500 calories from two twinkles and a handful of M&Ms - ▶️ 500 Calories from two chicken breasts and a large apple - Oooooobviously, the chicken and apple!🐔🍎 - Here's Your Takeaway ✅: if you're struggling to lose weight, especially if it’s because of hunger or low-energy, then try incorporating more fat burning foods (the way I define them here. NOT the way silly-goose fitness marketers do it 🦆💩) - If a high percentage of your total calories come from foods high in protein, fiber, and water — you know, your basic healthy whole foods 🍎🥦🥩— then I guarantee you'll have a much easier time satisfying your tummy-tum & sticking to your diet ☺️👌 - 💥What’s your favorite food(s) that help you stick to your diet and lose fat? Let me know in the comments below!💥 ———

🔊 Sound ON! 🔊
-
Its ridiculously easy to get addicted to seeing progress.
-
Not that seeing progress is a bad thing, obviously. Im talking about getting overly-focused on how quickly or slowly changes are happening.
-
‘Cause here’s the thing. How quickly you’re making progress is mostly out of your control...
-
✅ Instead, stay focused on what YOU can control!
-
You can’t change how quickly the scale drops or your measurements change, but you can control your diet, your exercise, and how consistent you’re being with each.
-
My Advice: focus on what you can control and trust to the process. Do that, and you’ll be well on your way to seeing results 💪

cartergood | Carter Good | “Weight loss is temporary. Maintaining a healthy body is for the rest of your life.”
-
Whenever you’re thinking about starting a new diet or workout program, remember that statement☝️
-
You see, it’s suuuuper-duper east to fall into the trap of thinking you’re just trying to lose weight. Yes, weight loss is a part of leaning down and getting healthier, but when you think about it, losing weight is just a small sliver of your journey...
-
The MAJORITY of your time is going to be spent (hopefully) maintaining a healthy body for the rest of your life!
-
My Advice ✅: before you implement a new diet or exercise strategy, ask yourself:
-
“Can I see myself doing this for the rest of my life?”
-
If the answer is anything but yes, don’t do it.
-
For me (and my clients), it always comes back to keeping things as simple as possible. Because the simpler the plan, the easier it’ll be to follow👌

Do a quick look-see-poo of my page, and you'll see 90% of my post are related to diet & nutrition... and for good reason.
-
You see, when it comes to losing weight, diet & nutrition is the most important component. No doubt about it.
-
But there's a problem with losing weight through diet alone or diet & cardio only. Just because you're losing weight, it doesn't mean you're losing the RIGHT kind of weight...
-
When people say they want to lose *weight,* what they actually mean is they want to lose body fat. Yes, eating in a calorie deficit will help you lose weight, and you'll lose fat too, but not ALL of the weight you're losing is going to come from fat...
-
Chances are, you'll also end up losing muscle :(
-
Trust me. You do NOT want to lose lean muscle while dieting. Reason being, muscle helps you maintain a faster metabolism, lose more fat, and achieve an overall healthier & leaner body.
-
And that's why strength training and lifting weights is so friggin' beneficial!
-
Not only will it help you maintain the muscle you already have, but chances are you'll end up BUILDING muscle while you're losing fat.
-
Sure, the scale might not drop as quickly, but you'll end up losing MORE fat from the weight you lose. What's more, you'll have an easier time getting rid of stubborn fat and staying lean in the long run.
-
➡️➡️ NOTE 📝: You don't have to be a powerlifter or bodybuilder! In fact, a lot of my clients work out from home using dumbbells, kettlebells, and resistance bands!
-
What matters is that you're challenging your muscles and focused on progressively getting stronger over time. If you're getting stronger — using more weight, doing more reps, etc — that's a good sign you're building muscle 💪

-
If there's one thing that's severely lacking in most weight loss plans nowadays, it's simplicity. You see, there's a lot of flash 💥 and bedazzlin’ 💎 going on with most diets...
- 
The Ketogenic Diets 🔥
Juice Fasts 🥤💀
The 21-Day Fix 🛠
-
It all sounds exciting, right? And the results they show folks getting makes it seem like a no-brainer to hop on board!
- 
The problem, though, is that any approach calling for radical or temporary change is ultimately going to be unsustainable (unless, of course, you're cool with never eating carbs again or drinking carrot juice till your 80 years old 💀🥕)...
- 
In reality, the best approach to losing weight, I've found, is the simplest one. And the more convenient your foods are to cook & prepare, the easier it'll be to keep things simple ✅
- 
These 11 foods are some of my favorite foods for both convenience and simplicity. All are incredibly easy to prepare (or in the case of Chipotle ❤️, easy to purchase) and fit well into a low-calorie, high-protein fat loss plan
-
‼️BUT I NEED YOUR HELP‼️

You see, I got a little excited (too much of this 👉☕️) and could only think of 11 when I was making this graphic...

👫Tag a Friend Who Needs To See This!👫
-
When you’re in a situation where you’re bored or anxious, time often feels like it’s standing still. But, when you’re intensely focused on a task, or just having fun with friends, hours can pass in what seems like a blink of an eye…
-
The same is true with losing weight.
-
Far too often, folks watch their weight day to day and get discouraged when it doesn’t move fast enough (or move at all!)
-
But that's just the way it goes. Your body weight WILL fluctuate…
-
⬇️ Some weeks it’ll go down a few pounds
↔️ Some weeks it’ll stay the same
⬆️ Some weeks it’ll even go up
-
If all you do is sit around and watch the scale, you’ll just unnecessarily stress yourself out…
-
Instead, ONLY focused on things YOU can control.
-
You can’t totally control daily and weekly changes in scale weight, but you CAN control how consistent you are with your diet and exercise plan.
-
Here’s my advice ✅: Focus on implementing weight loss strategies that you enjoy and can do consistently. Similar to time passing, the more you can get “lost” in the process, the easier (and seemingly faster) it'll be to see results.
-
... easier said than done. I know 😉

cartergood | Carter Good | 📍TWO LOW CALORIE FAT LOSS HACKS📍
— 
Surprisingly, most folks starting a diet don’t struggle with eating fewer calories. At least not in the beginning stages...
-
Instead, the biggest struggle comes with making changes with their eating habits.
-
Here’s what I mean. When someone starts a diet, the first step is usually eliminating foods they think are “bad” and replacing them with foods they think are “good.”
-
And sure, this might help them consume fewer calories, but it often requires so much change to their regular eating routine that they can’t sustain it for long…
-
The less change, stress, and resistance you create through dieting, the better. So when I’m working with clients, I focus on helping them find lower calories food alternatives for what they’re already eating.
-
One way is to “Go Lean With Protein.” Most people don’t think much about the fat-to-lean ratio of the meat they’re buying....
-
Beef is a great example 🐃 —> by switching from regular 80/20 or 85/15 ground beef to leaner 93/7 or 96/4 beef, you can end up saving ~70-150 calories per serving.
-
Another easy lean protein swap is switching from full-fat dairy products to low-fat or fat-free alternatives. -
Another trick is to Go Light With Oil & Sauce.”
-
It’s straight-up ridonkulous how easy it is to take in hundreds of calories from oils and heavy sauces without even realizing it — especially for folks new to food journaling who don’t always think to track & measure them.
-
An easy fix is to use significantly less oil or opt for an oil spray. I’d also recommend swapping out high-calorie sauces for their lighter/calorie-free alternatives.
-
Do you have any easy tips for cutting calories?

👬Tag a Friend!👭
-
Mindset is, without a doubt, the most overlooked part of any fitness plan.
-
Everyone gets worked up over which diet’s the best or which exercise burns the most calories... they forget that the plan you follow is meaningless without the right mindset.
-
In fact, you’ll get better results following an okay plan with consistency than following the “perfect” plan inconsistently.
-
Successful dieters know this too, which is why...
-
✅ They don’t let one mistake turn into many
-
✅ They focus on consistency, not perfection
-
✅ They focus on moderation, not restriction
-
✅ When they make a mistake, they forgive themselves
-
✅ They know it’s not a race, but a journey
-
And most important, when they want some pizza, they eat some pizza 🍕...
-
Why? Because pizza is delicious, and life is too short not to indulge on occasion 😋

Folks see my weight loss transformation and assume I️ must have had a never-ending supply of motivation shooting through my veins 💉...
-
But the truth is I️ struggled. Every single day.
-
Sure, some days I️ had ALL KINDZ of motivation. Those days were easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy 🍋🤗
-
Other days, when motivation was sparse, it took everything just to follow the motions without getting overwhelmed by the reality of how much longer this whole weight loss thing was gonna take...
-
Luckily, I️ never quit, and it’s because, early on, I️ learned the truth about motivation.
-
You see, while motivation is great when you have it, its not always going to be there.
-
Sometimes, you have to create your own motivation, and often, the only thing that separates feeling motivated to do something and not doing it is that first step 👣...
-
If you can just make that first move — putting on your gym shoes/ordering a healthy lunch — you’ll build momentum, and once you have momentum, it gets easier and easier to keep going.
-
And I’ll be 100% honest with you. There’s always going to be some resistance. But when you take the first step (then the next, then the next), you build momentum, and motivation follows.

📍THE 80/20 RULE FOR FAT LOSS📍 — There's this thing called the Pareto Principle which states, "for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes..." - [some call it the, “law of the vital few,” but I like calling it the Rule of 80/20] - The Rule of 80/20 is true for all sorts of things, and fat loss is definitely one of them! - You see, there are about a gajillion-bazillion (give or take a few) different strategies for losing fat... – There's... Low Carb 🍖 Low Fat 🍞 Ketosis🔥 Meal Timing Strategies ⏰ Meal Frequency Strategies 🗓 Intermittent Fasting 🍽 Fasted Cardio 🏃‍♀️ High-Intensity vs. Low-Intensity Exercise 🚴↔️🚶‍♀️... - Good golly!... No wonder people get so confused about what to do 😱🤷‍♀️ – HERE'S THE TRUTH ✅: the majority (~80%) of your results are achieved by adhering to a few simple things. The "20%" if you will. - They are: - 1️⃣ - Being in a Calorie Deficit 2️⃣ - Eating a Balanced Ratio of Macronutrients 3️⃣ - Strength Training 4️⃣ - Staying Active (the best you can 😉) - Master these four things, and you'll be set. - Plus, once you have these four things dialed in, then you can start looking into other things (like intermittent fasting or meal frequency) as a way to improve your consistency in those four areas. - Know someone this could help?

cartergood | Carter Good | 📍FAT LOSS RULES TO LIVE BY📍
—
I’m all for counting calories and tracking food. Especially for someone who’s just getting started or wants to maximize the accuracy of their weight loss diet.
-
However, there comes a time in every dieter’s life when they’re no longer focused on losing weight. At that point, strict calorie counting just isn’t necessary.
-
But there should always be some type of structure, which is where having a few “rules to live by” comes in handy. They help keep your calorie intake in check without having to religiously count or track ‘em.
-
Now, everyone’s different, but these 4 “Fat Loss Rules To Live By” are personal favorites, and I implement them on a regular basis.
-
1. Never Miss Twice - credit to @james_clear for first introducing me to this strategy. Never Miss Twice comes in handy when I’m traveling or out of my regular environment. It allows for some splurging but keeps me focused on eating nutritious foods the majority of the time.
-
2. Protein & Veggies - if you’re eating lots of protein and veggies, there’s a good chance you’re not over-consuming calories. Plus, protein and veggies help keep you full and satisfied 🤗
-
3. The One Plate Rule - props to @syattfitness for this one. The rule is, when you find yourself in a situation where there’s a lot of tempting foods (like a buffet or party), you can have whatever you one, but it MUST all fit on a single plate.
-
4. Limit Snacking - for a lot of people, mindless snacking is one of the biggest culprits that leads to over-consuming calories. I rarely (if ever) snack, but when I do, I make sure it’s some kind of protein or whole fruit.

This is a quote I've frequently come back to throughout my weight loss journey.
-
In fact, embracing the mindset behind it is the biggest reasons I've been able to successfully maintain my 140+ pound weight loss transformation.
-
You see, at some point during every person's healthy journey, they realize that the changes they're making with diet and exercise aren't just temporary. They’re lifelong commitments.
-
Of course, you won't always be losing weight... but developing lifestyle habits with your food and exercise is a part of living a physically & mentally healthy life!
-
Some people realize they're making a lifestyle change from the start while others, like me 🙋‍♂️, have this reality hit them over the head like a sack of bricks 6-12 months in...

Luckily, this quote helped with keeping me grounded for a couple of reasons:

cartergood | Carter Good | 📍9 REASONS YOU'RE NOT LOSING WEIGHT📍
—
It can be super-duper discouraging to see your weight stay the same for multiple days or even weeks...
-
Which if you think about it, is a bit silly, right?
-
It's funny how we get so emotionally invested in the up & down movement of a three-digit number that's affected by literally hundreds of different things!
-
If we are just looking at the fat loss portion of weight loss, there are a few key things that could be having an impact...
-
If your weight's not changing, it might be that you're not tracking accurately and, consequently, eating more calories than what you're logging. Or maybe you're not being active and burning fewer calories than you think...
-
Maybe you ARE losing weight, but you're just not being patient enough 😉
-
Heck, it might have nothing to do with fat loss at all. There are TONS of things that can affect your day-to-day weight that having absolutely nothing to do with changes in body fat...
-
Things like:
Stress
Eating more or less food the day before
When you last went number one or two 
How well you slept the night before
How many carbs you ate the day before
How much salt you ate the day before
Your hydration levels
etc...
-
So here's what I recommend ✅: instead of relying on just using your weight to analyze progress, make sure you're using other forms of progress tracking, too.
-
When I'm working with clients, we look at changes in average body weight, body measurements, progress photos, and how tightly/loosely clothes are fitting.
-
Remember, your weight does not define you. It's just one of MANY different tools you have in your weight loss arsenal for looking at progress 🛠

Listen, I get it. The thought of spending the next 6–12+ months losing weight might sound like an eternity...
-
But trust me. In the long run, those 6-12 months are going to be MORE than worth it. -
Think about it this way...
-
Sure, you might be able to lose weight more quickly by crash dieting or following some insane exercise protocol, but what’s going to happen when it comes time to actually maintain those results?
-
Chances are, you’ll eventually burn out and end up gaining most (if not all) of it back ...
-
What if, instead, you really buckled down these next 6-12+ months and focused on educating yourself 📚 & building habits 🔄 ?
-
Now imagine yourself one year from now. You have all of this knowledge and a toolbox full of habits & strategies to help you maintain a healthy body for the next 20,30,40,50+ years of your life.

cartergood | Carter Good | 📍HOW TO LOSE WEIGHT & KEEP IT OFF FOREVER📍
—
There's a reason weight loss pills, wraps, & FAD diets still exist...
-
It's because they play into one of our strongest desires as humans —> to get results fast for the least amount of effort possible.
-
No one likes wasting time, and for a lot of people, the idea of taking 6-12 months to lose weight might as well be an eternity...
-
But here's the thing. People don't just want to lose weight — they want to lose weight and maintain their results for the rest of their life!
-
When you think about it that way, those 6-12 months spent slowly losing weight & building healthy habits doesn't seem so bad, right? I mean, it sure beats yo-yo dieting on different crash diets for the next 10-20 years...
-
But hey. Maybe that's just me 😉
-
The Bottom Line ✅: It's 100% okay to want to focus on losing weight in the short-term. But just remember that after you lose weight, you're going to actually have to maintain it!
-
My recommendations:
-
▶️ Control Your Calories. That doesn't mean you HAVE to count them, but you need to have some sort of system in place to ensure you're eating in a deficit.
-
▶️ Eat Lots 'n' Lots of Whole Foods. Because they'll help you stay full and provides your body with the vitamins, minerals, and fiber it needs
-
▶️ Have Moderation. 'Cause a life without the occasional candy bar or Reese's cup just ain't a life worth living!
-
▶️ Focus on Sustainability. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter how much weight you lose if you can't actually keep it off.

📍HOW TO LOSE WEIGHT & KEEP IT OFF FOREVER📍 — There's a reason weight loss pills, wraps, & FAD diets still exist... - It's because they play into one of our strongest desires as humans —> to get results fast for the least amount of effort possible. - No one likes wasting time, and for a lot of people, the idea of taking 6-12 months to lose weight might as well be an eternity... - But here's the thing. People don't just want to lose weight — they want to lose weight and maintain their results for the rest of their life! - When you think about it that way, those 6-12 months spent slowly losing weight & building healthy habits doesn't seem so bad, right? I mean, it sure beats yo-yo dieting on different crash diets for the next 10-20 years... - But hey. Maybe that's just me 😉 - The Bottom Line ✅: It's 100% okay to want to focus on losing weight in the short-term. But just remember that after you lose weight, you're going to actually have to maintain it! - My recommendations: - ▶️ Control Your Calories. That doesn't mean you HAVE to count them, but you need to have some sort of system in place to ensure you're eating in a deficit. - ▶️ Eat Lots 'n' Lots of Whole Foods. Because they'll help you stay full and provides your body with the vitamins, minerals, and fiber it needs - ▶️ Have Moderation. 'Cause a life without the occasional candy bar or Reese's cup just ain't a life worth living! - ▶️ Focus on Sustainability. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter how much weight you lose if you can't actually keep it off. - 👉👉 If you want help building your own sustainable fat loss plan, click the LINK IN MY BIO 💬 to sign up for my FREE 14-Dat Fat Loss Course where I'll teach you how to lose fat & keep it off forever 👍 ———
