Why the Scale Lies

Hi, friends! Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and Easter Sunday!

Here’s the most recent episode of Carrots ‘N’ Cake Instagram Live, which includes a mini rant about why I think the scale lies and why it’s not a great measure of progress, especially when it comes to weight loss. If you missed the 24 hour replay, it’s shared below for your viewing pleasure. If you have any questions that you’d like for me to answer in the next video, please let me know – either comment below or send me an email!



In this episode, I cover the following topics:

  • What does “macro-friendly” mean?
  • My dream meal
  • Thoughts on tracking fiber intake
  • Favorite no sugar desserts
  • Do I weigh myself daily and why I think the scale lies

Answers to repeat questions I received this week:

Salmon Foil Pack

Foil pack dinners offer the ease and convenience of single packs with zero clean-up: an attractive option for anyone looking to make the most of their evenings (while still putting a healthy meal on the table).

We think this light and tasty salmon with asparagus pack is the perfect spring dinner—and Primal Kitchen Lemon Turmeric Dressing and Marinade makes it even easier. Four main ingredients, and supper is served!

Servings: 2

Time In the Kitchen: 15 minutes



Heat oven to 375ºF.

Divide raw asparagus and place half as well as a half salmon fillets in 2 large sheets heavy-duty foil. Fold up all sides of foil slightly to form rim. Pour 3 tablespoons of Primal Kitchen Lemon Turmeric Dressing & Marinade over each fillet half and asparagus stalks.

Bring up foil sides. Double fold top and ends to seal each packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Place packets in single layer in shallow pan.

Bake 15 min. or until fish flakes easily with fork. Cut slits in foil with sharp knife to release steam before opening packet. Top with additional dressing, lemon slices and chopping parsley as desired.
