Non-scale victories are far more important than the number you see! Remember the scale is not the only measure of success. What is a non-scale victory? Not every fitness goal has to be about losing weight and shedding body fat! Learning that your macros or diet play a role much larger than just a number on the scale is important for when that number stops moving ( that will happen). Understanding non-scale victories is great because you can start to identify other areas of your life that might have been affected from a lack of proper nutrition and diet.
First off look at how your clothes fit and feel.Sometimes knowing that your pants or shirts have more room than before is a great sign that things are moving in the right direction even if the scale hasn't moved a pound.
Your energy in life is better. Yes that is a sign of better quality of living. You shouldn't feel like you need a coffee at 3 pm to make it though the rest of your day.Your food quality and macros can definitely help you feel energized while shaping your body.
Training is better. More fuel, better workouts, more results over time. Everything builds on top of one another. If your not eating adequate fuel for training, your training will suffer and your results will not happen as fast as you would like. Fuel your body for optimal performance!
Quality of sleep goes up! Yes this is great for everything your body needs to do to repair at night. Getting less than 6 hours of quality sleep is a problem and your muscles and body cannot repair to make your training better. Instead, try to get better quality of sleep and that can happen when your body is not in adrenal fatigue on the daily from over stressing !
It's not always about the number on the scale, it's about your quality of life!
