Pictolic got in touch with Tammy and Lyssie, the Nutrition Twins, who are registered dietitian nutritionists and personal trainers, to learn more about weight loss. We were curious to hear their thoughts on before and after pictures as a motivational strategy. 

“Although it depends on each individual, we’ve found that “before and after” pics can rate extremely high in terms of a motivational tool. Many people like to see what they’re aspiring for, and once they see a vision, they can keep referring to the physical photo, or even the memory of the photo. We’ve had clients in the past who have kept photos of what they want to look like on their refrigerator and it’s inspired them to stick to a healthy eating plan.”

Statistically, many people do fail their weight loss journey, at least on the first attempt, so we wanted to know what people get wrong about it. “One of the biggest misconceptions about weight loss is that you have to starve yourself or always feel hungry or completely cut out your favorite foods. This doesn’t have to be the case at all! We encourage our clients to fill up on nutrient-dense, low-calorie foods like vegetables, before eating the rest of their meals. This leaves a lot less room for the heavier, less healthy fare, but still allows people to get their fix and not feel deprived, which is one of the secrets to long-term sustainable weight loss,” they shared with Bored Panda.

“Be careful not to fall prey to fad diets. If a diet is too restrictive and you lose weight too quickly, the diet will be too hard to maintain and you’ll end up gaining the weight (and more!) back as soon as you return to a normal eating plan. Overly restrictive diets set you up for cravings and binges, and if they’re too low in calories, they’ll ultimately slow your metabolism since you’ll wind up losing muscle as well as fat when you lose weight. If your body loses muscle, it’s counterproductive since it’s muscle tissue that keeps your metabolism speedy. Plus, yo-yo-ing with your weight makes weight sustainable weight loss more challenging both physically and mentally when you think you have to take drastic measures to get results.”
