I have been wanting to talk about this for a while now. (Much more VERY HELPFUL info will be provided in my yet to be released NEW book).
I often hear people say things like, “well, it only has __ calories, so it must be healthy!”
Well, most of the time, they are completely wrong. The healthfulness of a food is NOT determined by how many calories it has!!
The healthfulness of a food is determined by it’s nutrient content, therefore how much it will nourish and HELP your body. Most of those “100 calorie” packs that are so-called to be “healthy” are most of the time NOT healthy, highly processed, packed with preservatives so that they can last years, packed with added sugar/sodium, and made solely out of simple carbs. Also, they are PACKED with chemicals. When a food contains chemicals, your body doesn’t recognize the unknown/unnatural substance, so it stores the unknown substance as far away from the vital organs as it can (butt, thighs, ext.) The motto I live by is, “If you can’t grow it in your back yard, then it’s NOT good for you”.
So, what nutritional value is there in these so-called “healthy” foods?
Well…close to nothing! These foods are actually HURTING your body instead of HELPING.
Now, for instance, it you eat 100 calories worth of fresh fruit, then your body is being nourished with vitamins that will improve body functions and prevent diseases!
If you eat 100 calories worth of fresh avocado, then your body is being nourished with healthy fatty acids that will improve body functions and help your brain functions thrive!
Every time you eat, is a chance to NOURISH your body, not DESTROY it.
Now, to help further your understanding, here is another example….
If you were given the choice to eat a 100 calorie mini Banana Muffin Pack, or a Banana, then what would be the healthier choice?
Well, a banana! And guess what… The Banana has MORE CALORIES.
The bag of Mini Banana Muffins is heavenly processed, filled with added sugar, added sodium, and offers close to NO nutrients because it is solely a simple carb (simple/complex carbs described in my yet to be released NEW book).
AND, That mini mini muffin pack may not even contain any REAL banana. (MORE artificial ingredients that are made with chemicals and will turn to fat).
⭐️I hope you now understand that choosing a food should be based on nutritional value and NOT calorie content⭐️
