To lose weight you need to create a calorie deficit. Technically you can create that deficit by cutting carbs out completely... but you would feel like sh*t. Heck you could create the deficit by eating pizza and chips all day, but you would for sure feel like sh*t. Both because you would be missing valuable nutrients. In #momlife you have no time to feel like sh*t!
You NEED carbs. You NEED protein. You NEED fat. You NEED vital vitamins and minerals from veggies. Of course any diet that cuts one of them out will “work” because it results in an overall calorie decrease. However, it is not sustainable, because your bodies needs all those things.
With a diet too low in protein, you could end up losing muscle instead of (or along with) the fat. Losing muscle will lower your metabolism which is exactly the opposite of what you want to do.
With a diet too low in carbs your energy will plummet. Hello mom-ster!
A diet too low in fat may result in hormonal imbalances.
Bottom line: getting the right amount of protein, carbs, and fat into your diet will help you to reach your health and fitness goals AND maintain them when you get there!

Mom life can feel out of control. You are supposed to get shit done despite all the hormones, a baby that doesn’t sleep, a screaming toddler… the list goes on.
Your days feel out of control. Your body seems beyond your control.
You want to make a change, but you’re just too damn tired. Every day gets away from you. You were going to start working out today but… You were going to try out that new healthy recipe you saw on Pinterest today but…
Before you know it another week or month has gone by and you are still stuck in your rut.
Trust me, I’ve been there. It gives me anxiety all over again thinking about it.
So, how do you make sure you get it in when you are so damn tired?
How do you establish control over your body, when your life feels so out of control?
