Lucy Mountain, un blogger de fitness din Marea Britanie, incearca sa le arate oamenilor ca mancarea considerata sanatoasa poate ingrasa la fel de mult ca fast food-ul.
Fa cunostinta cu Lucy Mountain (@thefashionfitnessfoodie pe Instagram) – ea este o bloggerita de fitness din Marea Britanie care a venit cu ideea postarii unor imagini pe Instagram care iti vor schimba cu totul modul de gandire in ceea ce priveste mancarea sanatoasa!
Lucy este de parere ca numaratul caloriilor este mai important decat a alege alimente considerate sanatoase – asta daca vrei sa slabesti! In imaginile pe care le-a postat, Lucy face niste comparatii care cu siguranta vor schimba tot ce stiai. Asta pentru ca, asa cum arata si Lucy Mountain, cateodata mancarea sanatoasa poate avea mult mai multe calorii decat cea nesanatoasa – asa ca nu e nimic in neregula cu a te rasfata din cand in cand. Atunci cand vrei sa slabesti, totul tine de masurarea portiilor si de a inlocui anumite alimente bogate in calorii cu altele, mai sarace in aport caloric.
Un alt lucru foarte important este sa nu faci niciodata exces – nu conteaza ca e vorba despre mancare nesanatoasa ori sanatoasa.
A handful of Almonds vs. A packet of Fruit Pastels 🍬⠀ ⠀ Both snacks have the same calories. Which one would you pick?⠀ ⠀ Occasionally Im the left hand, but mostly Im the right hand. (I know, shocking. A person who considers themselves into health and fitness eats sweets – and is openly talking about it on social media.) 🌝🌝🌝⠀ ⠀ You see, although Im fully aware that a handful of almonds contains lots of wonderful nutrients that would keep me fuller for longer, some days (no matter whether Im looking to gain, maintain or lose weight) Ill choose to eat sweets or a chocolate bar as a snack 💪⠀ ⠀ Why? Because when the majority of my diet has consisted of well-balanced food thats full of micronutrients, I have no issue eating something thats less so just because I love the taste of it. This is just a personal choice. Cutting out things I love isnt realistic for me so I always squeeze something sweet into my days (all whilst still sticking to my calorie/macro/micro targets.)⠀ ⠀ Many would choose the almonds for the nutritional value or the flavour – which is totally fine. Many would choose the almonds because even though they’d prefer Fruit Pastels, almonds would make them feel more ‘on track mentally – which again, is totally fine 💕⠀ ⠀ Im not glorifying sweets, or almonds for that matter. Im glorifying knowing whats in the food youre eating, and make educated decisions based on your own values. And I value food thats good for my body and good for my soul.⠀ ⠀ ‘Healthy’ to me is exactly what I make it. And Fruit Pastels (in moderation) make me happy which I believe contributes largely to my overall health 🙌⠀ ⠀ #theFFF #theFFFeed @thefffeed
All three of these are smoothies. However depending on the ingredients thrown in, the calorie content varies pretttttty massively. Heres the breakdown:⠀ ⠀ 1. 130 kcal:⠀ – 300ml almond milk⠀ – 1 scoop protein⠀ ⠀ 2. 296 kcals:⠀ – 300ml almond milk⠀ – 1 scoop protein⠀ – 1 banana⠀ – 1 tbsp honey⠀ ⠀ 3. 500 kcals:⠀ – 300ml almond milk⠀ – 1 scoop protein⠀ – 1 banana⠀ – 1 tbsp honey⠀ – 1 tbsp peanut butter⠀ – 2 tbsp flaxseed⠀ ⠀ Now some people have a smoothie as a meal, others have them as a snack – and either way, thats totally fine 🙌However if weight-loss is your goal, being more mindful of what you throw into your smoothies could really make a difference 💪⠀ ⠀ Peanut butter, nuts and seeds are all super delicious in shakes but throwing all of them in unknown quantities can often take the calories up. You don’t need to track everything or be over meticulous, but having a basic awareness will help you on your way 🙌 ⠀ ⠀ Although it really depends on what else ive eaten that day, as a general rule of thumb Ill stick to a 3/4 ingredients and weigh each of them out 💕⠀ ⠀ I hope this helps you guys and gives you a bit of context.⠀ ⠀ (I wasted so much peanut butter in making this post 💔) #theFFF #theFFFeed @thefffeed
What Twix Consider One Serving vs. Real Life 🍫 On the front of this package, it says ‘125 calories per serving. Youd expect one serving be the whole bar right because no-one of sound mind would eat HALF a Twix right? Well Twix disagree. Apparently one finger is one serving. Which is preeeeeetty wild. – Recommended servings sizes are very general at best and dont accommodate to the individual person or their specific goals, including weight-loss and weight-gain. – If youre being more mindful of your calories, this is a prime example of why its important to read the labels properly and not just what it says in large font on the front. I mean OF COURSE youre going to eat the whole god damn thing, but its just good to know exactly what that equates to. – And yes, I eat Twix’s – even when Im working towards a fat-loss goal. I just make sure it compliments the rest of my diet for the day… BOTH sides of it. – #theFFF #theFFFeed @thefffeed
Water vs Water 💦 ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ These ‘Touch of Fruit’ guys totally got me a couple of months ago when I focusing on trying to get a little bit leaner. I just didn’t expect my water to have calories, I felt so betrayed lol.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 150 is majorly minor in the grand scheme of things but this is something potentially worth being aware of if:⠀⠀ 1. You’re being mindful of your calories for weightloss/weightgain.⠀⠀ 2. You think the Touch Of Fruit is going to taste good. It doesn’t. It’s like painfully weak juice – the kind your mum would pour for you when you were little. Sorry Volvic.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Happy Saturday babies.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #theFFF
100 calories of Strawberries vs 100 calories of Strawberries 🍓⠀ ⠀ The portion on the left weighs 300g and the portion on the right weighs 35g, however both amount to 100 calories.⠀ ⠀ I don’t about you guys but I love eating… like just eating. Anything. In general 🌝 So whenever I’m trying to get a little bit leaner, I love low calorie/high volume snacks. They make me feel like I’m eating more – like picking a bowl of fresh strawberries as opposed to a snack bag of dried strawberries 💪⠀ ⠀ People often presume dried fruit has the same macro/micro nutrient value as fresh fruit and don’t really take the huge difference in volume into account. Being aware of these factors could really help improve your portion control when eating either of these type of foods – and get you to your goal quicker 💕⠀ ⠀ Don’t get me wrong; dried fruit is waaaay easier to eat when you’re on the go (ain’t nobody got time to whip out a punnet of strawberries lol). So they could be a good option if convenience is the priority. But when fatloss is the goal, 300g of fresh strawberries is likely to be more satiating.⠀ ⠀ Anyway I personally like my strawberries dowsed in gelatin with the label ‘Haribo’ on it.⠀ ⠀ #theFFF #theFFFeed @thefffeed
