HEALTHY vs HEALTHY?? (read this caption!!)⠀ Please follow @bodybuilding.tricks for more great content!!??
Let me just say that I am a BIG FAN of eating HEALTHY FOOD (of course?). However, trying to reach any fitness goal (fat loss/muscle gain) by simple “eating healthy” can be a frustrating journey.. ?⠀
Let me explain.?⠀
3 years ago I didn’t know a single thing about calories or macronutrients. ZERO! So when I tried to go on a diet, and try to lose some weight, I would just start “eating healthy”. So I would cut out (what I thought was) unhealthy foods like bread, candy, chocolate etc. And only eat foods labeled as “healthy” (?)⠀
Guess what? It didn’t work. I didn’t lose any weight. So it was basically what I call a lose-lose situation (opposite of win-win?). Because I didn’t get to eat the foods I enjoyed (??) and it didn’t even make me lose weight?⠀
Fast forward to around January 2016, I started learning about calories and macros. And the fact that I could fit some chocolate or some ice-cream into my otherwise healthy diet and still lose weight.?? because total caloric intake is the nr. 1 thing that controls weight-management (Not if the food is “healthy” or “unhealthy”)⠀
So to wrap up this reaaaally long caption (sorry?) I want to say that HEALTH matters a lot. But when it comes to losing weight, there has to be an understanding of calories. Because as you can see in the picture there can be a big difference of calories in two foods even though they’re both “healthy” !!?♂️⠀
