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. 😏😏😏⠀

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⠀
- 60g raspberries⠀
- 15g manuka honey⠀

Right bowl:⠀

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⠀

#theFFF @thefffeed #theFFFeed

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:⠀

Spot the difference 🍽Both of these meals have the same amount of potato, tuna mayo and salad - but the plate on the right is 246 calories more than the left.⠀

Firstly can I just say:⠀
1. It is possible to be both aware of your calorie intake AND enjoy a varied balanced diet/happy relationship with food at the same time.⠀
2. It is also possible to find calorie counting of any form tedious and negative. In which case, please ignore this post and keep on doing you 💕⠀

Now let’s talk invisible calories. If you haven’t guessed, the 3 differences here are in the salad dressing, the oil used to bake the potato and the mayonnaise in the tuna. On the left I’ve opted for ‘lighter’ versions of each of these as opposed to the ‘normal’ option.⠀

If your goal is weight-loss (and you are eating enough fat in the remainder of your meals for the day), making these kind of small tweaks can really go a long way. You’re still eating the same volume of food for fewer calories - and it practically tastes the same.⠀

Equally if your goal is weight-gain, going for the higher calorie options will help increase your intake for the day if needed 💪⠀

Left Plate:⠀
- 1 Potato⠀
- 100g Salad⠀
- 1 tin Tuna⠀
+ 15ml Light Caesar Dressing⠀
+ Frylight Spray⠀
+ 1 tbsp Lighter Light Mayo⠀

Right Plate:⠀
- 1 Potato⠀
- 100g Salad⠀
- 1 tin Tuna⠀
+ 15ml Caesar Dressing⠀
+ 0.5 tbsp Olive Oil⠀
+ 1 tbsp Mayo⠀

As always I’m not bashing ANY ingredients here, I don’t believe in labelling foods as ‘good’ or ‘bad’. This is simply to show context 🙌⠀

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 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 🙌

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?!⠀

Toast and butter vs. Toast and butter 🍞
-
The difference being 96 calories and a couple of pats of butter.
-
This is a more extreme example (one would hope) because the thought of THIS level of butter makes me feel super weird lol. But this is just to show you how it can all add up.
-
When you're trying to get a little leaner you don't need to cut out foods you enjoy. Small tweaks to your portion control across an entire day can make a significant impact 💪

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 💕

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?⠀

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⠀
