My friend Hamaad put together this brilliant flow chart. It illustrates the moderation and flexibility of the healthy, lean lifestyle that I talk about all the time. He said👇🏽
There are no foods that will directly cause or prevent weight loss. So when people ask me "can I eat eat this?", they should be asking whether that food is conducive to their goals given their context. We know that weight loss is dictated by being in a calorie deficit, burning more calories than you consume. So weight loss is depedent on calories, not on a social label or how long it takes to digest. -
The first question is whether the food even fits your daily allotted calories and macronutrient intake. If so, you usually do not want to eat foods that leave you hungry. So if a food is very calorie-dense and low-volume, it should usually be avoided because it will leave you hungry and wanting more calories. -
There are times where a food may not provide you with the protein and fiber you need, or may be high in calories. This is when you must consider your adherence. If you love a food and it is not a "trigger", then you should fit it into your daily food intake. This means you hit your calorie and protein intake, eat 2-3 servings of fruits and veggies, and fit that ice cream or whatever it is into your intake.
Remember, if you never eat the foods you love, it is likely you will fall off your diet or gain back most of the weight you lost. No foods are necessary or can never be eaten. Rather, you just have to make sure you consistently stay within your calorie and macro targets while getting the nutrients #nutrition#fitness#instahealth#macros#fitnessjourney#fitlife#naturalbodybuilding#bodybuilder#muscle#fitnessaddict#eatclean#healthy#healthyfood#healthylifestyle#healthyeating#weightloss#fatloss#diet#진짜다이어트#식단#다이어터소통
