Do you like cake⁉️Do you often accompany your coffee with a muffin⁉️ Something that is a part of a lot of people’s ‘some day diet’ can be unknowingly extremely costly in calories comparing to something as calorie dense as a burger and chips. The bottom line of such comparisons like this isn’t to say one is better than the other, or that either are good food choices but that despite not looking ‘all that bad’ some foods can be quite taxing on your overall daily intake. The body recognises the food you eat as calories and macronutrients but not all food is equal in energy. More calorie dense foods are not forbidden but particularly when watching your weight and overall health they should be consumed in moderation. Especially when dieting the key considerations are 1️⃣WHAT your body needs 2️⃣HOW much of it and 3️⃣WHERE to get it from that will both satisfy your preferences and keep you fuller for longer. ☑️It’s important to strike a balance between foods you love + overall good health + meeting your calorie and macro goals for results. ⚖️What you don’t have to do to achieve results is forgo foods you love, ✅ you can still sustain balance and moderation but just get more value for your calorie budget in the process. 🍰Soul food has a time and place and every now and again enjoying this at the expense of extra volume and nutritious foods is fine within a balanced diet. 🔑 However for overall good health and optimal body transformation success filling your day with 80% wholesome and nutrient dense foods and 20% soul food is a wiser more sustainable approach.
