When the time comes around to set the table and knockback your favourite munch you may be under the illusion that the size of the pie is what counts i.e. the more you eat the worse-off you’ll be when you step on the scales. And in reality how much you eat of can have negative effects on how you feel about yourself, what the scale says and so on, but what you put into your body should be the first thing you think about.
If we asked two identical twin brothers to take it upon themselves to stick to a diet of (brother 1) Vegetable Smoothie as a drink and protein, carbohydrates and fats in accordance to the Eat Well plate. While (brother 2) would have a diet of Orangeade as a drink and his pick of the menu from Mc Duffie’s burger shop for the duration of the experiment we will likely find that brother 1 would be nutritionally better off and healthier.
The macronutrients we eat (Carbohydrates, Fats and Protein) have various and necessary places in our diet, facilitating growth and hormone regulation among many jobs. Eating a diet of refined carbohydrates, trans fats, high amounts of salt and sugar all negatively affect the way we feel and this translates to how we work and do our daily chores.
Changing the way you look at food is essential to any weight-loss goals. Food is stored energy that we all need to survive, some of us are allergic to one thing and may have an aversion to another food. We’re all different and have different relationships with the food we eat but it’s important to work on eating habits a bit at a time.
Changing eating habits isn’t easy and can require time and coaching to achieve over time but know that adapting your taste for food is the best thing you can do in order to control your weight. If you were to eat 1kg of Salad in the day you’d be better off than if you were to eat 1kg of Crisps in a day. What you eat is more important to your goals than how much you eat.
