Same amount of food, different calories 🍽⠀

You might recognise this guy from my post on Saturday. He featured on my full day breakdown of food 💪 Thought he deserved some of the spotlight by himself ⭐️⠀

The only differences are the percentage of fat in the meat and the oil used to cook it. Firstly FAT IZ GOOD 4 U. It's simply more calories per gram than carbs or protein. That's it.⠀

Secondly CALORIES R GOOD 4 U. You need them to fuel your body. However making a simple swap like this could be useful if your goal is weight management and you're getting adequate fat in the REST of your meals through-out the day 🙌⠀

I appreciate some of you aren't about the Frylight sprays in replacement of oil. Das cool. I personally am okay using it, but use normal Oil if not! 💕⠀

Left Side:⠀
- 125g Golden Veg Rice⠀
- 80g Mushrooms⠀
- 60g Peas⠀
- 100g Chopped Tomatoes⠀
+ 125g 5% Fat Beef⠀
+ Frylight Olive spray⠀

Right Side:⠀
- 125g Golden Veg Rice⠀
- 80g Mushrooms⠀
- 60g Peas⠀
- 100g Chopped Tomatoes⠀
+ 125g 12% Fat Beef⠀
+ 1 tbsp Olive Oil⠀

The OG has arrived. Spot the difference 🔍⠀

Each side has the same amount of food but the left side has 550 calories less than the right.⠀

I know I say the same shit every post but let's get my lil disclaimers out the way first because they're important:⠀

1. I'm v. v. v. aware calories don't necessarily mean 'healthy'.⠀
2. However if you're looking for weight-loss/gain having an awareness will help.⠀
3. Each day of food is just an example and not what you should necessarily aim for.⠀

So let's talk differences;⠀
- OJ = Reduced Sugar vs 'Normal'⠀
- Porridge Almond Milk = Unsweetened vs Sweetened⠀
- Salad Dressing = Light vs. 'Normal'⠀
- Oil to Bake Potato = Light vs. Olive Oil⠀
- Tuna Mayo = Light vs. 'Normal'⠀
- Beef = 5% fat vs. 12% fat⠀
- Oil to Cook Veg = Light vs. Olive Oil⠀
- Yoghurt = 0% Fage vs. 2% Fage⠀

This is just to show you don't have to necessarily eat less food. Small swaps can make a big difference 🙌

(And yes I eat chocolate bars. The kind you get from a newsagents. And still consider myself 'healthy' 💕)⠀ Left side:⠀

Breakfast:⠀
- 40g Oats⠀
- 3 Strawberries⠀
+ 200ml Unsweetened Almond Milk⠀

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.

Fatloss Food vs. Fattening Food 🍩🍏⠀

Firstly soz for the crude labels. (It's just to make a point.)⠀

I'm a firm advocate of everything in moderation, no matter what my fitness goal might be. Fat-loss, muscle-gain, maintenance or no-goal-whatsoever 🙌⠀

Because it's in our nature to want to give things labels, it can be really hard to see food without associating it as 'good', 'bad', 'healthy', 'unhealthy'. It also doesn't help when the media is constantly reinforcing this in order to get more clicks (hi coconut-oil gate 🌝)⠀

No single food will cause weight-gain. Eating more calories than you're expending constantly over a period of time will do this.⠀

Equally, no single food will cause weight-loss. Eating less calories than you're expending constantly over a period of time will do this.⠀

Of course, we still need to understand different foods have different nutritional values beyond calories which can impact your weight. For example, you're more likely to 'over-eat' on cake than chickpeas (if you're a sane human being) lol.⠀

But I believe the restricting yourself of foods you enjoy will ultimately always lead to binging. So just eat all the things you love in moderation. (Sorry I know it's the most unsexy word but let's learn to love it.)⠀

This post was inspired by @mybetter_self's post on 'fat-burning foods' last month 💕 Check out her profile - she's a total babe. And she's French.⠀

Anyway. I hope dis makes sense 💪⠀

#theFFF @thefffeed #theFFFeed

Weetabix vs. Protein Weetabix 🥄⠀

I bloody love Weetabix but I'm calling BS on this for two reasons:⠀

1. There are 3.1 grams of protein difference between two normal Weetabix and two protein Weetabix. To put this into perspective, I aim to eat at least 100g per day. So the difference between the two types is just 3.1% max of my daily protein target lol 🙄 Of course, other's will have lower requirements, but certainly not low enough for 3.1g to be a significant difference.⠀

2. They've literally slapped the word 'Protein' on it to sell more packs because it's a buzzword. And the protein pack is 50p more expensive than the normal pack. So you're paying a whole 50p for just 3.1g protein more per serving which is basically cray to me. (Gal be on a budget and ain't got no time for such expenses.)⠀

So to conclude:⠀
- If you want a high protein breakfast, maybe go for something else.⠀
- If you just bloody love a bitta Weetabix, ignore everything I've just said and go eat dat Weetabix.⠀

(Alternatively, you could just pour 250ml of some skimmed milk over the normal, cheaper type for 13g protein per serving 🌝🌝🌝)⠀

Okay bye.⠀

P.s. Weetabix if you're reading this I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed. Love u still 💕

Fruit and yoghurt vs. Fruit and yoghurt 🍉⠀

Both of these bowls have 150g of greek yoghurt. Both of these bowls have 150g of fruit. However the difference in calories is approximately 300 calories.⠀

I’m not saying the left bowl is any better the right bowl as both are full of wonderful micro-packed foods 🍓. I just wanted to show you guys how small changes to ingredients can change the caloric total 😊⠀

This doesn’t mean you need to weigh and track every last strawberry (lol). It just means if your goal is fat-loss, being a little bit more mindful of the calories in what you’re eating will really help when making food choices 💪⠀
I firmly believe you should never cut anything out your diet you don’t want to. But I also know first hand how easy it to unknowingly remove a calorie deficit by eating something labelled as a ‘health food’ (Those coconut pieces came from a small grab and go 'snack pot’ but were 400 kcals 🤔)⠀

Please note this post is not bashing fruit 🙏. This is purely from a fat-loss perspective and I’m fully aware of the lovely health benefits of ALL of the ingredients above (before ya’ll start throwing vitamins and minerals at me) 😏⠀

I want to highlight some small tweaks which could help those looking to lose fat with simple swaps 💕⠀


Left bowl:⠀
- 150g Fage 0% Greek Yoghurt (78 kcal)⠀
- 50g Strawberries (16 kcal)⠀
- 50g Melon (15 kcal)⠀
- 50g Pineapple (25 kcal)⠀

Right bowl:⠀
- 150g Fage Greek Yoghurt (142 kcal)⠀
- 50g Banana (45 kcal)⠀
- 50g Passionfruit (49 kcal)⠀
- 50g Coconut (196 kcal)⠀

50g Granola vs 100g Granola 🍽
-
Both could be considered a bowlful however the bowl on the right has twice as much in it than the left. Granola is often considered a healthy way to start the day however it’s very easy to over eat (and get stuck in that ‘milk-cereal-more milk-more cereal’ cycle. Yep I could literally go to town on a box of granola.) 😅
-
Granola is often full of nuts and seeds 🥜 (which isn’t a bad thing!), the fat content can be pretty high which means so can the calories. So if weight management is your goal, it's always a good idea to use method of measuring your portions when eating it, like a scoop or scales 💪
-
Don’t be fooled by ‘healthy’ branding and make sure you check the labels still. This exact pack had ‘LOW SUGAR’ printed on the front of it - and although it did indeed have less sugar, it still has the same amount of calories per 100g as many other versions with more sugar. I hope this helped some of you! 💕 This post isn't about bashing foods - but about education so you can enjoy them whilst still achieving your goals 🙌
-
P.s. I spent £4 on the fucking bag of granola so I could do this post for you guys. DEDICATION.

I love this post by @thefffeed. Over the course of beginning my fitness journey back in April this year I have learnt so much about food. Whilst it's super important to ensure you reach all of your macro (protein, fats, carbs, fiber) and micro nutrients (the stuff that your body needs to thrive), it doesn't mean that you have to label all foods good and bad. Whilst the nutritional value of a doughnut is very low, the calories can be equal to that of a healthy food. Healthy foods can still make you gain weight, so education is key. For a while there I became so obsessed with 'good foods' 'bad foods' that the guilt I felt when I picked up a doughnut was almost as bad as not exercising at all! That in turn made me eat clean and then binge - that was the point that I decided I just needed to educate myself on the topic more. Now I enjoy a balanced diet and I'm so happy! I highly recommend following this chick on Instagram, she has some great stuff. 💪 @theFFFeed #thefffeed #foodeducation

Protein Porridge vs. Protein Porridge 💪⠀

Neither of these bowls are 'good' or 'bad'.⠀
Neither of these ingredients are 'good' or 'bad'.⠀
They are just bowls of oats with different toppings.⠀

Both bowls have different calorie totals.⠀
Both bowls have different macronutrient values.⠀
Which one you might go for depends on your goal.⠀

Why you might pick the left bowl:⠀
1. Your goal is weight-loss and this will help you reach a sensible calorie deficit.⠀
2. Your goal is weight-gain but the remainder of your diet for the day will meet your total requirements.⠀
3. The micronutrient value.⠀
4. You just wanna eat it.⠀

Why you might pick the right bowl:⠀
1. Your goal is weight-gain and this will help you reach a sensible calorie surplus.⠀
2. Your goal is weight-loss but the remainder of your diet for the day will meet your total requirements.⠀
3. The micronutrient value.⠀
4. You just wanna eat it.⠀

Calories aren't the sole indicator of 'health'. This is subjective term. How many calories you consume and how many you use through activity is an important part of weight management but there any many other things to consider 💪⠀

So just do you 💕⠀


Left bowl:⠀
- 40g oats⠀
- 1 scoop protein⠀
- 250ml almond milk⠀
- 60g blueberries⠀

Peanut butter on Toast vs Peanut Butter on Toast 🍞⠀

Both are made from one slice of the same bread, both have a spread of the same peanut butter on top. However one side is roughly 150 calories more than to the other.⠀

I bladdy love a bit of PB but it can be super easy to accidentally-on-purpose spread half a jar on a piece of toast lol (I've been there 🌝) Because nut butters are high fat, they tend to be high in calories. WHICH IS ABSOLUTELY FINE GUYS. It's just something to bare in mind if weight-loss (or weight-gain) is your goal. Weighing out yo PB is a good method of managing this.⠀

Left Slice:⠀
- 1 slice of Hovis Wholemeal Bread (88 kcal)⠀
- 15g Peanut Butter (94 kcal)⠀

Right Slice:⠀
- 1 slice of Hovis Wholemeal Bread (88 kcal)⠀
- 40g Peanut Butter (250 kcal)⠀

As you know from my recent posts, I'm about enjoying ALL ze food and there is nothing I cut out of my diet that I like the taste of - no matter my goal. Learning how to manage portion sizes has allowed me to achieve this! I hope this helps my fellow PB addicts out there. I got chu. 😏😏😏⠀

150ml Gin & Slimline Tonic vs. 150ml White Wine 🥂⠀

So I’m not really a casual drinker - I’m very much GO HARD OR GO HOME lol 💁🏼 I probably go out and get suitably drunk once or twice a month. This has nothing to do with being all #fitness, I'd just rather go for dinner most of the time than slam jagerbombz in Shoreditch.⠀

Alcohol has calories (as much as we don't gaf after a few units 😏), and they can add up pretty quickly on a night out depending on what you drink. If you're a regular drinker, something as simple as swapping your white wine for a Gin and Diet tonic could slice your potential calorie intake by over half 🙌 Just something to bear in mind if you’re watching your intake 💕⠀

P.s. I genuinely used to pre-drink a bottle of white wine at Uni. Was i okay?⠀

P.p.s. Did you know alcohol is it's own macronutrient? 😏⠀

#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

Avocado Bagel vs Avocado Bagel 🥑⠀

The one on the right is the kind you’d probably find at a trendy brunch spot. The one on the left is 300 calories less.⠀

Both are very similar in volume and taste, but with a few little tweaks, the nutritional values are very different (see end of caption) 💪⠀

Savoury breakfasts (like Instagram’s beloved avo-on-toast) typically use high fat ingredients. Which is of course fine, however such ingredients are generally higher in calories. ('Healthy' doesn't always mean low calorie.) Things like avocado, feta, coconut oil, nuts and seeds are all considered pretty 'healthy' so it’s tempting to just pack them all in. ⠀
So if/when you’re trying to get a little leaner, being more mindful of what you order when out for brunch and portion control at home will help you on your way! 🙆⠀

Remember, you don’t have to cut anything out your diet that you enjoy. Just knowing quantities and simple swaps will make all the difference, like I did here:⠀

Left bagel:⠀
- Half an avocado⠀
- Plain bagel⠀
- 30g Cottage Cheese⠀
- 5g Toasted oats⠀
- 0.5 tbsp Lemon juice⠀

Right bagel:⠀
- One whole avocado⠀
- Plain bagel⠀
- 30g Feta Cheese⠀
- 10g Toasted sesame seeds⠀
- 0.5 tbsp Coconut Oil⠀
