    . “You don’t need to count calories! Just eat healthy foods, and you’ll lose weight!” ⠀ Has anyone ever told you that☝️? ⠀ Well, they’re not entirely wrong. ⠀ Eating healthier foods CAN and DO help you lose weight — but it’s nothing magic. ⠀ It’s because of what happens when you start consuming more whole & nutritious foods... ⠀ Let me explain: ⠀ Fat Loss 101 👨‍🏫 👉 To lose weight, you NEED to be in a calorie deficit. ⠀ Everyone got that? Okay, good. ⠀ Moving on... ⠀ Now imagine someone swaps their usual cheeseburgers and fries 🍔🍟 (which have lots ‘n’ lots of calories) for the same amount of chicken breast and broccoli 🐔🌳 (which has much fewer calories). ⠀ Duh. No wonder they lose weight! They end up consuming fewer calories without even trying! ⠀ And there are many reasons why it’s easier to take in fewer calories eating healthy food. ⠀ The main ones being they have: ✔️MORE food volume per calorie ✔️ MORE protein (typically) ✔️ MORE Fiber ✔️ MORE Micronutrients (vitamins & minerals) ⠀ So how can YOU take this knowledge and use it for your own benefit📚🤔? ⠀ 1. If you’re struggling to eat in a deficit because you’re always feeling hungry or tired 😰, eating more whole foods will help! ⠀ How? By increasing how much food you’re eating and ensuring you’re getting plenty of vitamins and minerals. ⠀ 2. If you’re struggling to eat whole foods because you’re craving “less healthy” foods like chocolate 🍫 & ice cream 🍨, realize that you CAN still have those foods. ⠀ You’ll just need to make ’em “fit” your daily calorie goals. ⠀ Because “fun” foods tend to be more calorically dense, the trade-off is you might have to deal with a bit more physical hunger... ⠀ Typically, folks can get away with eating fewer whole foods at the beginning of their diet. But as they start to lose weight, they get hungrier, and the belly-filling benefits of eating whole foods overpower their desire for that extra scoop of ice cream 😉 ———

      . Having support & accountability from friends or a coach can be a game changer... ⠀ Reason being, there are gonna be days when you don't feel uber-motivated to workout. ⠀ Some days you're going to wake up, look in the mirror, and you're gonna-wanna say "eff this fitness bull crap!” ⠀ In those moments, having someone (or multiple someones) to support you can be the flame that keeps you going 💪🔥 ⠀ And while support & accountability are great, it's important to remember that, at the end of the day, YOU are the one on this journey. ⠀ As a coach, my goal is to create a plan and line of communication that makes it simple ‘n’ easy for my clients to stay consistent. ⠀ But(t🍑) the truth is there's only so much I can do... ⠀ The only way my clients will get the results they want is by doing this for themselves. ⠀ My advice to you👇 ⠀ Take some time today or tomorrow and think about your "why" for wanting to get fit... ⠀ And saying, “because I wanna lose weight" isn't gonna cut it. ⠀ You need to go deeper. ⠀ Ask yourself, "Why do I want to lose weight." ⠀ Maybe your answer becomes, "because I want to fit into a specific dress size." ⠀ Okay... so WHY do you want to fit into a specific dress size? ⠀ Question your answer like above a few more times. ⠀ You’ll find you get closer and closer to a deeper reason for wanting to lose weight. ⠀ When you find and identify your core “why," that's when the magic happens... ⠀ You'll still have that support and accountability from others, but now you won't need it every single day to keep going. ——— ⠀ #cartergood #weightloss #weightlosshelp #weightlossjourney #weightlosssupport #weightlossmotivation #weightlossinspiration #weightlosstips #motivation #selfmotivation #selfmotivated #support #accountability #fit #fitnessmotivation #fitspo #dieting #losingweight #dietmotivation #gymmotivation #workoutmotivation #weightlosscoach #fitnesscoach #fatlosscoach #dietcoach #nutritioncoach

        . The 80/20 Diet Rule is one of my favorite nutrition “rules” to follow... ⠀ Reason being, it lets you enjoy fun foods in moderation (~20%) and still ensure the majority (~80%) of your calories are coming from micronutrient-dense whole foods. ⠀ Pretty straightforward, right? ⠀ Good. That's exactly how it should be! ⠀ The simpler & easy-to-follow you can make your nutrition & exercise plan, the better. ⠀ Quick Note 📝: although this is a "rule," you don’t need to live or die by it... ⠀ Doing so will just have you stressing about unnecessary stuff like, “wait, is this in the 80%?” or “oh no! I’m only at 75% whole foods today!” 😱 ⠀ Instead 👉 think of it as a reminder that MOST of your food choices should be coming from healthy whole foods. ⠀ Perfectly nailing "80%" and "20%" every day isn't realistic... ⠀ There will be times when it's easier to go above 80% whole foods or when it's difficult to stay under 20% with "fun" foods. ⠀ For example, say you're going out to a bar with friends on Friday... ⠀ Chances are, you'll end up taking in a buttload of calories from "fun" foods like hot wings and beer. ⠀ That’s totes okay! ⠀ Why? Because what you do MOST of the time is more important than what you do some of the time ✅ ⠀ Go out and enjoy your Friday night with friends — just make sure you're doing your best to eat closer to 80/20 (or even 90/10) most of the week, and get back on track as quickly as possible 💪 — ⠀ #cartergood #weightloss #losingweight #dieting #diet #dieter #flexibledieting #flexiblediet #healthylifestyle #nutrition #healthydiet #healthybalance #fatloss #fatlosstips #fatlossdiet #weightlossdiet #fitness #fitnesslifestyle #fitnesslife #fitforlife #healthyhabits #dietmotivation

          . I’m incredibly fascinated by the slight differences between folks who struggle vs. successfully lose weight and keep it off… ⠀ Reason being, the differences seem small, but they’re incredibly impactful. ⠀ Some people naturally gravitate towards having healthier habits. ⠀ I wasn’t one of those people. ⠀ When I was over 300 pounds, I was doing all the things in the “struggling dieter” category... ⠀ Cravings controlled my food choices. One unhealthy meal turned into another. I’d fall off track when my motivation died out. ⠀ Things have changed for me, but it hasn’t been from “luck” or “good genetics.” ⠀ I’ve had to spend a lot of time, effort, and emotional energy thinking about WHY I had those unhealthy habits... ⠀ WHY did I give into cravings regularly? WHY did I struggle to stay on track? WHY did I always lose motivation? ⠀ I could write a whole novel on it (I’m sure you could too!), but here are the biggies: ⠀ 1. I was suppressing my parent’s divorce. ⠀ I thought I was “fine,” but the 70 pounds I gained six months post-divorce said otherwise. ⠀ 2. I felt like a victim. ⠀ Most of my family is overweight, and I assumed I had “fat genes.” ⠀ 3. I was too impulsive. ⠀ I’d start & stop diets based entirely on temporary motivation. I never sat down and honestly asked myself if losing weight was something I truly wanted. ⠀ And that’s what I want to leave you with... ⠀ Ask yourself, “do I *really* want to lose weight?” ⠀ Do you want to change for yourself or is someone else telling you to change? ⠀ Are you willing to be 100% honest and transparent about what you struggle with? ⠀ Are you ready to face the emotions & demons that are motivating your unhealthy eating habits? ⠀ There’s no right answer... ⠀ Maybe you’re not ready. That’s okay. ⠀ I struggled to lose weight for years, and it's because I wasn't ready yet. ⠀ Just know that when you ARE ready... ⠀ You're going to have to fight for this. You'll have to battle a few mental dragons 🐉 ⠀ But having seen both sides, I can tell you this... ⠀ Nothing compares to the freedom that comes from facing your struggles head on and defeating them one by one. — ⠀

            . Motivation’s a funny thing... ⠀ See, when you have it, everything’s fantabulous. ⠀ Staying consistent is easy 👏 Going to the gym is actually fun 💪 Eating nutritious foods is enjoyable 🙌 ⠀ When you DON’T have motivation, well, it’s an entirely different story… ⠀ Staying consistent is tough titties 😿 Going to the gym to workout sucks 👎 Eating nutritious foods is the last thing you wanna do 😒 ⠀ I wish there was a “quick fix” or “cure” to the motivation swing, but there isn’t. ⠀ Truth is, we all go through periods of time when we are more and less motivated to do this whole fitness thing. ⠀ And that’s where many-a-people make a mistake... ⠀ Many-a-people think it’s all about finding & staying motivated. ⠀ They see people on IG who are successfully losing weight and think, “Wow! Look how motivated they are! Gimme some of what they’re having, please!” ☝️🤓 ⠀ Some things about IG... ⠀ For one, it’s a highlight real. ⠀ People tend to post their highest & best 😁— rarely their lowest & worst 😔 ⠀ Secondly, it might appear that someone’s motivated 24/7 to achieve their goals, but that’s simply not the case. ⠀ EVERY SINGLE PERSON goes through motivational highs & lows. ⠀ What separates those who succeed from those who fail isn’t “more motivation.” ⠀ Instead, it’s what they do DESPITE motivation ✅ ⠀ Because you’re going to go through tough times... ⠀ You’re gonna-wanna give up ⠀ You’re gonna-wanna throw in the towel ⠀ You’re gonna-wanna say "eff this!" and quit ⠀ But it’s in those moments of doubt when staying consistent matters most! ⠀ Now, that’s not to say you’ll never screw up, because you will. In fact, I guarantee you’ll slip up a time or two. ⠀ What matters is that you don’t quit. ⠀ If you refuse to quit, you WILL be successful. It’s just a matter of staying consistent and being patient. ⠀ I’ll leave you with a phrase I always share with my online clients (they get sick of hearing me say it too)… ⠀ It’s not about being perfect. It’s about doing your best as frequently as you can. When you do slip up (and you will), it’s not about beating yourself up but rather getting back on track as quickly as possible ❤️ — ⠀

              . I want to tell you about my client Bonnie. ⠀ She’s been working with me for just over a year and has lost ~50 pounds... ⠀ So when you do the math, she’s dropped, on average, around .5-1 pound per week. ⠀ Some weeks she lost 2-3, some weeks she didn’t lose any, but she’s averaging .5-1 pound. ⠀ Now, a lot of people might see that and think her progress is too slow, but I disagree. I think Bonnie’s progress has been FAST! ⠀ Reason being, in the past 12 or so months, Bonnie has lost & actually MAINTAINED each new low weight milestone. ⠀ She’s not yoyo-ing up and down. She hasn’t given up. ⠀ What’s more, she’s built habits and strategies that are making it easier for her to stay consistent and keep her results. ⠀ So yes, in the short-term, it might seem slower, but in the long run (5-10 years from now), she’s going to come out on top because of what she’s doing now — losing weight the right way 💪 ⠀ Your Takeaway💥—> stop worrying about how quickly or slowly you’re losing weight. If you’re seeing changes (on the scale, measurements, how clothes fit, how you feel), then you’re doing great! ⠀ Instead, focus on the habits you’re building and the strategies you’re using to get those results... ⠀ Because the truth is that HOW you go about getting results is a lot more important than HOW QUICKLY you get them. 🐢 — ⠀ #cartergood #weightloss #losingweight #progress #weightlossprogress #fitness #fitnessprogress #weightlossjourney #weightlosssupport #weightlossstruggle #dieting #fatloss #fatlosstips #fatlossjourney #nsv #losinginches #progresspics #healthyweightloss #healthymindset #betheturtle #plateau

                . I'm gonna let you in a teensy little secret about myself (don’t tell nobody 😉...) ⠀ I don't absolutely love working out 🙈💔🙊 ⠀ —> “Wait, what!? Carter, the fitness coach, doesn't love working out?” ⠀ ⠀ Calm down! Let ya’ boi explain... ⠀ I don't hate working out by any means. ⠀ But(t🍑) if it’s Friday night and you’re asking me if I wanna go hit a workout or see the new Incredibles movie, I’m responding with, “what do you think... Butter or no butter?” 🍿🤔 ⠀ I know this is valuable info to share, too. ⠀ You see all these fitness models & personalities on Instagram with their #GymRats or #FitnessFreak hashtags praising their love for pumping iron... ⠀ And you might think there's something wrong with you since you don't share to same *gusto* for workout out. ⠀ Well, I'm here to tell you that you do NOT need to fall in love with exercise. ⠀ Of course, you can (and should) learn to value it, but don't think you have to make the gym your second home to see results. ⠀ One of the best ways you can reap the benefits of exercise, and learn to enjoy it in the process, is by making it a healthy habit in your life. ⠀ Here are a few of my favorite ways to get started: ⠀ 1. Do it First Thing in The Morning ☕️ - you'll get it out of the way and start your day with a win. ⠀ 2. Set Out Clothes The Night Before 🌙 - this will make it easier to get up and go ⠀ 3. Put It In Your Schedule 📅 - that way you can't make excuses when it comes time to actually do it. ⠀ 4. Follow a Set Workout Routine 📝 - this makes your workout more productive and time-efficient. ⠀ 5. Don't Start Out Doing Too Much 😰 - doing too much will only lead to burnout. Start small and slowly work your way up. ⠀ 6. Workout With Friends 🤜🤛 - to build accountability and make it fun. ⠀ 7. Combine it With Chores 🐕 - this goes back to making exercise more time-efficient. ⠀ 8. Something Beats Nothing 👍 - a 20-minute walk beats no walk at all. ⠀ 9. Make Sure It's Goal-Focused 🏋️‍♀️ - wanna build muscle? Lift weights. Wanna improve your cardiovascular health? Do more cardio. ⠀ What are some strategies you use to make exercise a habit? Let me know down below!👇 ———

                  . What the hell is a Party Plate 🎉🍽? (& how to build your own!) ⠀ If you’ve kept up with my stories, then you’ve likely seen me eating bowls filled with random fruits, meats, cheeses, veggies, etc. ⠀ That, my dear friend, is what I call a “Party Plate.” ⠀ And while the ingredients used may appear to be random, there’s actually a formula I follow. ⠀ I’ll share that here in a second… ⠀ First —> WHY a Party Plate? 🧐 ⠀ Does it help you lose weight faster? Not necessarily. ⠀ Does it contain magical fat loss properties? That's a negative. ⠀ I consume Party Plates on the reg because, well, they’re convenient! ⠀ And convenience is key 👌 ⠀ Truth is, the more convenient you can make your diet, the easier it’ll be to stick to it, and that consistency is what’ll lead to long-term success. ⠀ It’s why I’m a fan of meal plans and eating similar foods throughout the week — not to create rigidness or restriction, but rather structure and certainty in knowing that what you’re eating is moving your closer to your goals. ⠀ The problem with most meal plans is how they're created by someone else, and they don’t always have the user’s tastes & life schedule in mind… ⠀ When YOU are the one building a meal plan around YOUR schedule and foods YOU enjoy, that’s where the magic can happen! ⠀ Anywho, here’s that formula for making PP’s: ⠀ FRUIT 🍇🍓🍊—> usually grapes, berries, apples, oranges, or mangos ⠀ CRUNCH 🥕🥨🌶 —> usually carrots, bell peppers, crackers, or chips ⠀ PROTEIN 🍗🥓🧀 —> usually deli meat, beef jerky, cubed cheese, or RX (protein) bar ⠀ SPREAD 🍯🧀 —> usually honey, light syrup, cream cheese, or jelly ⠀ Recently, my go-to bowl has been: [FRUIT] Grapes, Berries, Orange Slices [CRUNCH] peppers, carrots, 4-5 crackers [PROTEIN] turkey, chicken, 1/2 RX Bar [SPREAD] Light Honey Drizzle + Light Cane Sugar (delicious combo!) ⠀ Typically ends up being 500-700 calories. (you can make your bowl higher or lower in calories based on your goals) ⠀ ... that simple! ⠀ Oh, there are two other rules you have to follow: ⠀ Rule 1: You must eat it with your fingers 🖐 Rule 2: You must giggle profusely while eating 🙊 (it burns calories too) ⠀ 📸: @trent_mccloskey — ⠀

                    . I wanna share something personal with you... ⠀ Reason being, it’s something I’ve struggled with, and I know there’s a good chance it’s something you’ve struggled with too. ⠀ When I first started losing weight, I did it with the WRONG mindset ❌ ⠀ My motivation to get lean was fueled out of self-hate & disgust 😔. I felt ashamed for being obese and thought, if I could lose weight, THEN I could finally love myself and be happy. ⠀ And that hate-fueled motivation worked. ⠀ It worked really freaking well, actually. ⠀ But I still wasn’t satisfied. ⠀ I had lost the weight I wanted to lose, yet... ⠀ I was still unhappy 🙁 I was still unsatisfied ☹️ I still didn't love myself 😔 ⠀ Now listen —> I’m NOT perfect 🙅‍♂️ ⠀ I still struggle with showing myself love every single day (and anyone who says they don’t struggle is a big fat lying nincompoop 💩) ⠀ But I’m always working on it, and compared to where my mindset was when I had first lost weight, I’m 1000x happier and more confident in myself. ⠀ Now back to YOU👇 ⠀ Do you want to lose weight because you feel it’ll finally make you happy or complete? That it’ll be the thing that finally allows you to start loving yourself? ⠀ If so, stop that thinking right effin’ MEOW😼 ⠀ Because there’s no amount of weight lost, inches dropped, or muscle definition that’ll magically make you happy... ⠀ Being happy and loving yourself comes from within, and you can start TODAY. ⠀ No, it won’t be easy 💦 Yes, it’ll take time ⏰ ⠀ But the good news is that you don’t have to lose “X” number of pounds or look like “so-and-so fitness model” to be happy... ⠀ You can flip the script and start motivating yourself out of LOVE this very moment. ⠀ BOTTOM LINE ✅: Weight loss is temporary. Mindset is forever. ⠀ Your motivation to lose weight shouldn’t come from hate. It should come from loving yourself so much that you want to become your best self. ⠀ Could you do me a favor? ⠀ If this resonated with you, PLEASE let me know in the comments and tag someone you think it'll help 🙏❤️ —

                      . So your weight's not moving (or it’s incredibly slow)… ⠀ I guess that means you’re not making progress, aye? ⠀ ... are you sure about that? 😉 ⠀ You see, we use the word “weight loss” as a catch-all term for going from heavy & unhealthy to fit & healthy. ⠀ And yes, part of that is often losing body weight... ⠀ But do NOT fall for the trap of thinking that your scale weight is all that matters! ⠀ It’s like clockwork ⏰… ⠀ I’ll get a message: “Hey Carter, I’m not making progress. What gives?” ⠀ I’ll answer back: “Yo dawg, what’s going down? Talk to me.” ⠀ They’ll say: “Well, the scale hasn’t moved much the past month…” ⠀ To which I’ll reply: “How about your measurements, pics, workouts, and clothes fit? Have those things been changing or improving at all?” ⠀ And they’ll reply: “Yeah… I haven’t been tracking those other things…” ⠀ If you’re only looking at changes in body weight to determine the success or failure of your plan, you’re doing yourself a huge disservice. ⠀ The scale is a helpful tool, but it’s just one tool. ⠀ One of many that you have in your progress tracking toolbox 🛠 ⠀ My Advice 👉👉 there's nothing wrong with using the scale to monitor progress (especially if you’re using it the right way by finding weekly and monthly averages). ⠀ But(t🍑) don’t let your body weight be the end all be all ❌ … ⠀ Make sure you’re also looking at changes in: ⠀ Measurements ✅ How Clothes Fit ✅ Progress Pictures ✅ Workout Performance ✅ And How You Actually Feel! ✅ ⠀ Here’s what I do with most of my clients: ⠀ —> weigh-in daily and look at 7-14 day averages (even monthly averages) ⠀ —> measurements every 2-3 weeks ⠀ —> progress pictures every 4-6 weeks ⠀ —> weekly self-assessment of hunger, energy levels, and reflection on anything experienced the previous week they consider as progress (beating a craving, getting a compliment, etc.) — ⠀ #cartergood #weightloss #losingweight #progress #makingprogress #fatloss #fatlossjourney #fitnessprogress #weightlossprogress #progresspic #progresspics #losinginches #losingfat #bodyweight #nsv #dieting #dieter #fitness #fitnessjourney #weightlosstips #weightlosssupport #weightlossstruggle #weightlosshelp

                        . “Carter, how did you learn to stop overeating and eliminate cravings?” ⠀ That’s a question I’m often asked ☝️ ⠀ Many people think that because I lost weight, I’ve figured out the trick or hack for eliminating cravings and avoiding overeating… ⠀ Here’s the truth —> I still have cravings. ⠀ I still overeat too 🙊… ⠀ There are days where I have the best intentions to make a healthy dinner, but then find myself six slices deep in a meat lovers pizza with extra sauce… 🍕😛 ⠀ But here’s the difference… ⠀ Unlike the “old” me, I don’t let ONE bad meal or bad day turn into multiple meals, days, or weeks of overeating. ⠀ I’ve made healthy eating a habit, and I contribute it to a few main things… ⠀ 1. I remind myself that cravings are normal 💯🧠 ⠀ A lot of people think they’re weak or broken for having cravings... ⠀ Truth is, every single person has them. They’re wired into us biologically 🐒 ⠀ By reminding myself that I’m not “weak” for craving foods, it helps me stay in control of my sudden urge to scarf down that entire pizookie 🍪 (most of the time, anyway). ⠀ 2. I edu-macated myself☝️🤓 ⠀ The more I learned about nutrition (calories, macros, etc.), the more I realized there are no “good” or “bad” foods. ⠀ That, in turn, helped get rid of the all-or-nothing mindset I had with eating certain “bad” foods. ⠀ Before, I’d have a slice of 🍕, and because I was already being “bad,” I'd have to make it worth it. Now, in that same situation, I remind myself that I’m not being bad at all, and I don’t have to keep going or make it count. ⠀ I can stop after a few slices, or at the very least know that I'm going to be back on track the very next meal. ⠀ 3. I stayed patient ⏳ ⠀ I didn’t find a healthy balance overnight… ⠀ It took months and months of constant effort to improve my relationship with food. ⠀ And like I said from the start — I’m still not perfect. ⠀ I give in to cravings and overeating on a weekly basis! ⠀ But the good news is this: ⠀ We don’t have to be perfect (thank God 🙏) ⠀ We just need to do our best consistently and ALWAYS be willing to get back on track. No matter how far we think we've deviated, we can always get back on course 💪🍕❤️ —

                          . READ THIS if you’re worried about overeating today👇 ——— So... who’s ready to get wasted? ⠀ Hehe, partially joking 🙃 ⠀ But it is the 4th, which in the US, means lots of parties, fireworks, barbecues, and yes… alcohol 🍺🍷🥃 ⠀ And while many-a-folk are gearing up for a fun & relaxing day, there’s an equal chunk who are feeling stressed & worried. ⠀ Maybe that’s you? 🤷‍♂️ ⠀ Up to this point, you’ve been dialed with your diet & exercise plan. ⠀ You’ve tracked all your food perfectly to the “T.” ⠀ You’ve crushed your workouts every single week. ⠀ You’ve not let temptations and cravings get the best of you (yet). ⠀ But now, today, you have to go to your sister’s silly pool party, or your best friend’s freaking bbq extravaganza… ⠀ And it’s not that you DON’T want to go and spend time with people. Instead, you’re worried about overeating 🍔🌭, drinking too much 🍻, and feeling like total shit tomorrow morning 💩☠️ ⠀ So if you are going out, remember: ⠀ —>💥 It’s ONE day. ⠀ Even if you royally 'eff up, it’s still just one day! At worst, it’ll set you back a few days-worth of making progress… who cares? That’s meaningless in the grand scheme of things. ⠀ —>💥 You are in control. ⠀ You decide if you want another bite. You decide if you want another beer. ⠀ Yes, it’s more difficult to have control when you’re in-the-moment, but if you keep telling yourself “I’m choosing this. I'm in control” it’ll help keep you in command of what you’re eating/drinking. ⠀ —>💥 No “Guilt Cardio” or “Recovery Diet” the next day. ⠀ After a big day/night of eating, It can be tempting to go to the gym and burn 1000+ calories or fast the whole next day... ⠀ Don’t fall for that trap ❌ ⠀ It's not as effective as you think, and for most people, it’ll likely just worsen their relationship with fitness and increase their chance of overeating or binging in the future. ⠀ Simply get back to your regular plan, and move on with your life. ⠀ ⠀ Anywho... enjoy today, whatever you find yourself doing. Drink some, eat some more, be merry, and remember that YOU are in control 💪❤️ — #cartergood #weightloss #dieter #diet #losingweight #overeating #bingeeating #wine #winewednesday
