Are Your Snacks Making You Hungier?

You’ve tried everything to lose weight; calorie counting, keto, fasting. None of it worked. Or it did for a while, and you put the weight back on. Or you were miserable! As a weight loss Nutritionist, most clients I see have been through this, and they come in for more individual support, as they are so frustrated they can’t seem to figure out what’s going on.

I’ll tell you what I tell them – there are so many factors that contribute to changes in weight (see below). Yes, you would need to have an energy deficit in order to lose weight, but the amount you eat is only one factor in weight loss, among many.⁠

Weight loss Nutritionist describes factors affecting weight loss and gain

The factors affecting weight loss could be a number of these things, so that’s what we address in your consultation.

But, here’s what a weight loss Nutritionist sees in those struggling with weight loss:

Skipping Meals

Fasting doesn’t work for everyone. There are also a large number of ways to implement fasting. Most of the weight loss clients I’m seeing are skipping breakfast and/or lunch. Seems like no big deal, but then they are struggling to lose weight. The main reason why is that they’re craving so much in the afternoons as they’re just not giving their body enough energy to get through the day. Most of the time this then leads to overeating or overindulging in the wrong foods later on in the day (even unconsciously). Getting in a decent breakfast and lunch is all we need to do in order to feel more satisfied and stable in the afternoon and evenings.

Lack of Protein Intake

Protein helps keep us feeling satisfied and fuller for longer, so incorporating protein into every meal helps us reduce snacking. Our bodies can’t absorb our whole recommended daily intake of protein in one sitting either, it needs to be spaced out evenly across the day. Everyone’s protein requirements are slightly different, but a great rule is roughly 20-30g of protein in every meal.
