Známa americká fitness blogerka Lucy Mountain nazrela do sveta obľúbených potravín z pohľadu energetickej hodnoty. Jej výsledky šokovali celý svet a zmenili pohľad na mnohé obľúbené pochúťky.
Nie každá potravina je totiž tak nezdravá, ako si mnohí z nás myslia. Pozrite sa na výsledky jej štúdie a budete prekvapení. Kalórie v potravinách sú v niektorých prípadoch zarážajúco podobné.
Lucy sa svojím prieskumom snaží zmeniť naše zmýšľanie pri počítaní kalórií. Využíva k tomu jednoduché porovnania, ktoré budú vaším účinným pomocníkom.
Lucy rovnako vysvetľuje, že niekedy na pohľad zdravá potravina nemusí byť pre naše telo prospešná. Naopak malý kúsok čokolády môže priniesť viac úžitku ako hrsť sušených jabĺk. Zamyslite sa aj vy pri najbližšom nákupe a doprajte si niečo nové, chutné a zdravé zároveň.
Oh sorry guys - you just caught me here in the moment, sitting with my @missfitsnutrition protein and shaker. Could I be anymore candid rn?⠀ ⠀ After my post a couple of weeks ago, I know loads of you have also been on the search for a protein that doesn’t taste like sand. Which is one of the reasons why I am proud to be collab-ing with @missfitsnutrition. If you’ve tried it before, I don’t really need to say anymore BUT if you haven’t, lemma introduce it into your life.⠀ ⠀ Firstly you don’t NEED to take protein powder. it's called a supplement for a reason. They can just be really useful if:⠀ ⠀ - You are on the go a lot of the time (can throw a pouch in your bag, no fridge needed)⠀ - You struggle to eat adequate protein to support your goal (they have 16-18g per serving)⠀ - You just literally like the taste of them.⠀ I’m basically all three of those things which is why I have a serving a day. I switch between both the pea protein and whey isolate. And they actually taste great. Yes to #NoMoreSandShakes.⠀ ⠀ (If you're a newbie and want to try Missfits - the code FFF5 code will get you £5 off your first order. And I'm not still in character, being an INSTA-FIT GIRL - this is a valid code )⠀ ⠀ @sprinkle_of_green #SPON #theFFF #NoMoreSandShakes

Mnohí z nás by si radšej vybrali mandle, či už kvôli ich chuti alebo výživovej hodnote. Pri pohľade na porovnanie ostanete v nemom úžase. Mandle totiž smelo môžete nahradiť ovocnými cukríkmi. Samozrejme nie hocijakými, záleží to od energetickej hodnoty vybranej sladkej pochúťky. Konečne však nebudete musieť mať pri ich konzumácii výčitky svedomia.
BUDE ŤA ZAUJÍMAŤ:
A handful of Almonds vs. A packet of Fruit Pastels ⠀ ⠀ Both snacks have the same calories. Which one would you pick?⠀ ⠀ Occasionally I’m the left hand, but mostly I’m 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 I’m fully aware that a handful of almonds contains lots of wonderful nutrients that would keep me fuller for longer, some days (no matter whether I’m looking to gain, maintain or lose weight) I’ll 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 that’s 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 isn’t 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 fin⠀ I’m not glorifying sweets, or almonds for that matter. I’m glorifying knowing what’s in the food you’re eating, and make educated decisions based on your own values. And I value food that’s 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
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
Salt and Vinegar Crisps vs Vegetable Crisps ⠀ ⠀ Each of these bowls contain 1 bag (40g) of crisps. The bowl on the left are salt and vinegar, the bowl on the right are mixed root vegetable.⠀ ⠀ Although the difference in calories is pretty minuscule, you’d expect the vegetable crisps to be considerably less calories right? This is just another little reminder that often there’s not much difference between the product marketed as the ‘healthy alternative’ and the real thing. So go for the thing you actually WANT to eat ⠀ ⠀ Although there are many different aspects that describe ‘healthy’ (yes - it IS subjective), such as salt content, micro-nutrient value and how that food makes them feel, calories play a fundamental part in weight management. This post isn’t to say 'TRACK EVERYTHANG, TRACK THAT DAMN CUCUMBER’, it’s more about looking at your diet within the context of a whole day - and eating the damn salt and vinegar crisps if that’s want you actually want.⠀ ⠀ I want this and all my comparison posts to give encourage freedom with your food choices, not restriction. When 80% of my diet within a day is full of adequate micros and macros, i will ALWAYS eat food I love purely for taste. Because life. Ygm. ⠀ ⠀ (All crisps are vegetable crisps )⠀ ⠀ Which side are you guys going for?⠀ ⠀ ⠀ *Crisps from Co-Op Irresistible range* - #theFFF #theFFFeed @thefffeed

100g Milk Chocolate vs 100g 85% Dark Chocolate ⠀ ⠀ So it’s pretty unknown that dark chocolate actually has more calories than milk chocolate (and white chocolate for that matter.)⠀ ⠀ Dark is often given the label as the ‘healthy’ version of chocolate. And although calories aren’t the sole indicator of ‘healthy’, we just presume it has lower calories. So which one is best for weight-loss?⠀ ⠀ In most cases, Dark chocolate has less sugar, more fiber and more iron than milk. It’s basically more nutritious than milk chocolate.⠀ ⠀ Regardless, I will always go for milk for two reasons:⠀ ⠀ 1. I think Dark chocolate tastes like garden leaves.⠀ ⠀ 2. Chocolate isn’t something I’ll seek out when I’m looking to pack in those vitamins and minerals - especially in a diet that already consists of adequate fruit, vegetables and micronutrient-dense food I enjoy chocolate for it’s taste, not it’s nutritional value. My diet is inclusive of it always - no matter what my goal is at the time ⠀ ⠀ For those of who genuinely love dark chocolate, keep doing you . However if you PREFER the taste of milk, but force yourself to eat dark because you've read it’s 'healthier', just have the milk chocolate and enjoy it In terms of weight-loss from a calorie perspective, it’s actually more beneficial and will raise happiness levels by 938% (unproven stat.)⠀ ⠀ Don’t eat things you don’t enjoy for the sake of it. Personal enjoyment is ‘healthy’ in my eyes Which side are you guys?!⠀ ⠀ #theFFF #theFFFeed @thefffeed
What Twix Consider One Serving vs. Real Life On the front of this package, it says ‘125 calories per serving’. You’d 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 don’t accommodate to the individual person or their specific goals, including weight-loss and weight-gain. - If you’re being more mindful of your calories, this is a prime example of why it’s important to read the labels properly and not just what it says in large font on the front. I mean OF COURSE you’re going to eat the whole god damn thing, but it’s just good to know exactly what that equates to. - And yes, I eat Twix's - even when I’m 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

I used to think liquid calories didn’t count. Don’t get me wrong, when I’m on a night out the calories in my gin and tonics aren’t exactly at the forefront of my mind BUT day-to-day (when I’m not up in da klub ) I prefer to eat my calories rather than drink them. - It’s often surprising how many calories are in coffees and hot drinks - a large Starbucks Flat White is 290 calories and a latte is 300. If weight-loss is your goal, a simple swap like ordering a white americano instead will save you 250 calories If you did this everyday, you’d save 1,750 calories across a week which will have a great impact for such a small change. (AND you still get to walk around with your name on a Starbucks cup ) - Simple swaps and daily habits FTW - #theFFF #theFFFeed @thefffeed
Just another food comparison since they've not been done enough ⠀ ⠀ Solero Ice Cream vs. Magnum Ice Cream ⠀ ⠀ Both creamy af.⠀ Both delicious af.⠀ One is just 150 kcals more.⠀ ⠀ If your goal is weightloss, the Solero could be a good swap for the ole classic Magnum (if it helps you stick to stay in a calorie deficit.)⠀ ⠀ And equally - if your goal is weightloss, the Magnum could be a good choice regardless (if it helps you stick to stay in a calorie deficit.) You don't need to restrict anything out of your diet that you enjoy the taste of, no matter what your goal is. Including ice cream Enjoy.⠀ ⠀ #theFFF @thefffeed
Protein vs. Protein - I try to eat a high protein diet to support my training. There’s is still an archaic stereotype that you need to be eating chicken breast and drink liquid egg whites in order to do so (which of course ain’t true.) - I’m ALL about convenience so the new high protein yoghurt pouches from @thecollectiveuk are a dream. I know not all of you track your calories/macros but for those like myself that do - they’re less than 116 cals with 14g protein which is more protein than two eggs. (And they taste incredible ) - It’s just a really accessible way to get some protein in on the go that doesn’t require water and protein shaker that I’ll accidentally leave at the bottom of my bag for 3 days. Unwashed. I know you’ve been there. - Big yes to these from me. - P.s. This post is in collaboration with @thecollectiveuk. Please note I only collaborate with brands I genuinely use, trust and love. Hence why you’ll never catch me promoting detox teas or gummy bears for hair growth lol - #ProYo #theFFF #spon
