Nutrition can certainly be a complex topic, but there are certain principles that we just don’t need to overthink. Here are some “fast facts” to help you stop over-complicating your eating.⠀

1. The frequency you eat doesn’t matter. One meal or five will have the same affect at the end of the day if the food is the same.⠀

2. If you want to lose weight, you need to be in a caloric deficit. How you get into a deficit will vary, and maybe there are some obstacles in your way, but it still holds true.⠀

3. Drink your water. It’s important for pretty much everything.⠀

4. There is no food you CAN’T have. Restrictive diets that tell you that you have to avoid certain foods are not worth following.⠀

5. If your goal is weight loss, you technically don’t need to worry about your micronutrients, but they are very important for your overall health.⠀

6. The exact way you split up your fat/protein/carbs depends completely on your lifestyle and needs.⠀

7. See number 1. You can split your meals up however you want, whenever you want.⠀

8. Don’t be afraid to eat fat. Women, eating enough fat is especially important for dem hormones.⠀

9. If you went keto and lost weight that’s great- but it’s not magic. Keto put you in a caloric deficit.⠀

10. No matter your goals, you don’t have to count your calories or track your macros. It can certainly help, but it’s not a necessity.⠀

Ten of these were all I could fit into one graphic, but this can easily be a list that’s 10x as long. What would you add here??⠀
