Blogerica srušila stereotipe o zdravim i lošim grickalicama te oduševila saznanjima

NJENI će vam dokazi doći kao melem na ranu, posebno ako vam je već dosta brojanja kalorija i sumanutog izbjegavanja zabranjenih grickalica.

Doduše, njeno mišljenje baš ne ide u prilog nastojanjima da se loše grickalice "ocrne", a dobre, zdrave, još više dignu na pijedestal. No ako malo promislimo, nitko zapravo nikada nije tvrdio da se dobre grickalice smiju jesti u velikim količinama.

Ona ne tvrdi da su nezdrave grickalice iste kao i zdrave, jer će vam nezdrave dati puno loših nutrijenata, a zdrave dobrih. Ona samo tvrdi da bi se ljudi trebali prestati toliko zamarati baš svakom kalorijom.

Tijekom godina bavljenja fitnessom, hranom i prehranom, blogerica Lucy Mounatin pokušavala je otkriti pravu mjeru zdravlja u odnosu na grijehove koje svi volimo. Tako je s vremenom razbila neke općenite stereotipe te ih pokazala javnosti pomoću obične usporedbe namirnica.

Misija joj je bila dokazati da nije toliko važno što točno jedemo (naravno, osim ako konzumirate samo nezdravu hranu), već je poanta u tome koliko čega jedemo.

Evo što ona tvrdi: 



Salt and Vinegar Crisps vs Vegetable Crisps 🥔⠀ ⠀ Each of these bowls contain 1 bag (40g) of crisps. The bowl on the left are salt and vinegar, the bowl on the right are mixed root vegetable.⠀ ⠀ Although the difference in calories is pretty minuscule, you’d expect the vegetable crisps to be considerably less calories right? This is just another little reminder that often there’s not much difference between the product marketed as the ‘healthy alternative’ and the real thing. So go for the thing you actually WANT to eat 🙌⠀ ⠀ Although there are many different aspects that describe ‘healthy’ (yes - it IS subjective), such as salt content, micro-nutrient value and how that food makes them feel, calories play a fundamental part in weight management. This post isn’t to say 'TRACK EVERYTHANG, TRACK THAT DAMN CUCUMBER’, it’s more about looking at your diet within the context of a whole day - and eating the damn salt and vinegar crisps if that’s want you actually want.⠀ ⠀ I want this and all my comparison posts to give encourage freedom with your food choices, not restriction. When 80% of my diet within a day is full of adequate micros and macros, i will ALWAYS eat food I love purely for taste. Because life. Ygm. 💁🏼⠀ ⠀ (All crisps are vegetable crisps 🌝)⠀ ⠀ Which side are you guys going for?⠀ ⠀ ⠀ *Crisps from Co-Op Irresistible range* - #theFFF #theFFFeed @thefffeed

'Healthy Breakfast' vs 'Naughty Snack' 🌝⠀ ⠀ I've been talking a lot about labels recently, and I thought this would be good example of what I'm talkin bout.⠀ ⠀ On the left is a pack of Belvita Breakfast biscuits, on the right we have 4 digestive biscuits. One is marketed as a 'healthy breakfast' and the other is seen as a 'naughty snack.'⠀ ⠀ They're practically the same calories and macros, with the digestive biscuits being a fraction higher in protein and lower in sugar than Belvitas 🙄.⠀ ⠀ Yes, Belvita has an extra few micronutrients but only the equivalent to approximately 150g of spinach lol. Which one would hope you'd get from the rest of your diet anyway.⠀ ⠀ So yeah in short, buy Belvita if you enjoy them and they're working for you (#YouDoYou always 💕) but if you're only buying them because they're marketed as a 'healthy' breakfast, I'd argue you might find a better choice more suited to your goal.⠀ ⠀ (Digestives are also 60% cheaper #BargainLife)⠀ ⠀ #theFFF

100 calories of Strawberries vs 100 calories of Strawberries 🍓⠀ ⠀ The portion on the left weighs 300g and the portion on the right weighs 35g, however both amount to 100 calories.⠀ ⠀ I don't about you guys but I love eating... like just eating. Anything. In general 🌝 So whenever I'm trying to get a little bit leaner, I love low calorie/high volume snacks. They make me feel like I'm eating more - like picking a bowl of fresh strawberries as opposed to a snack bag of dried strawberries 💪⠀ ⠀ People often presume dried fruit has the same macro/micro nutrient value as fresh fruit and don't really take the huge difference in volume into account. Being aware of these factors could really help improve your portion control when eating either of these type of foods - and get you to your goal quicker 💕⠀ ⠀ Don't get me wrong; dried fruit is waaaay easier to eat when you're on the go (ain't nobody got time to whip out a punnet of strawberries lol). So they could be a good option if convenience is the priority. But when fatloss is the goal, 300g of fresh strawberries is likely to be more satiating.⠀ ⠀ Anyway I personally like my strawberries dowsed in gelatin with the label 'Haribo' on it.⠀ ⠀ #theFFF #theFFFeed @thefffeed

A handful of Almonds vs. A packet of Fruit Pastels 🍬⠀ ⠀ Both snacks have the same calories. Which one would you pick?⠀ ⠀ Occasionally I’m the left hand, but mostly I’m the right hand. (I know, shocking. A person who considers themselves into health and fitness eats sweets - and is openly talking about it on social media.) 🌝🌝🌝⠀ ⠀ You see, although I’m fully aware that a handful of almonds contains lots of wonderful nutrients that would keep me fuller for longer, some days (no matter whether I’m looking to gain, maintain or lose weight) I’ll choose to eat sweets or a chocolate bar as a snack 💪⠀ ⠀ Why? Because when the majority of my diet has consisted of well-balanced food that’s full of micronutrients, I have no issue eating something thats less so just because I love the taste of it. This is just a personal choice. Cutting out things I love isn’t realistic for me so I always squeeze something sweet into my days (all whilst still sticking to my calorie/macro/micro targets.)⠀ ⠀ Many would choose the almonds for the nutritional value or the flavour - which is totally fine. Many would choose the almonds because even though they'd prefer Fruit Pastels, almonds would make them feel more ‘on track’ mentally - which again, is totally fine 💕⠀ ⠀ I’m not glorifying sweets, or almonds for that matter. I’m glorifying knowing what’s in the food you’re eating, and make educated decisions based on your own values. And I value food that’s good for my body and good for my soul.⠀ ⠀ ‘Healthy' to me is exactly what I make it. And Fruit Pastels (in moderation) make me happy which I believe contributes largely to my overall health 🙌⠀ ⠀ #theFFF #theFFFeed @thefffeed

Someone Who Tracks Their Calories vs. Someone Who Doesn’t 🙃⠀ ⠀ That’s right, there is no difference.⠀ ⠀ There’s no difference because the method you choose (if any) does not solely dictate the food you consume. It starts with you, and is influenced by many factors such as:⠀ ⠀ - What you like to eat⠀ - What you don’t like to eat⠀ - Your lifestyle⠀ - Your goal⠀ - Your moral stand point⠀ - Your income⠀ ⠀ And then, of course, your method which could be anything from My Fitness Pal, adopting portion control and eating intuitively to meal prepping your lunches and even using Weight Watchers ✌️⠀ ⠀ Yes - your body tracks your caloric intake whether you consciously choose to or not BUT it’s down to you to decide the level of awareness you want (include none at all.)⠀ ⠀ Does counting a calorie stress you out? If so, don’t do it. It’s simply one of many methods 🙌⠀ ⠀ Does tracking mean you have to start eating Pop Tarts and become a Bro? 🌝 Absolutely not. There’s a lovely, non-obsessive middle ground which exists. That’s where I’m at 💕⠀ ⠀ Don’t forget everything starts with you. Experiment and work out what works for you taking into account not only your goal, but also your physical and mental health 💪⠀ ⠀ #theFFF

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

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 🙌⠀ ⠀ Okay bye 👋 #AnotherReallyShortCaptionForYou⠀ ⠀ #theFFF #theFFFeed - (p.s. JUST NOTICED - AS IF @theFFFeed IS AT ALMOST 1k FOLLOWERS IN LIKE 3 DAYS. 😅😅😅😅)

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:⠀ - 40g oats⠀ - 1 scoop protein⠀ - 250ml almond milk⠀ - 1 banana⠀ - 4 dates⠀ - 20g almond butter⠀ ⠀ #theFFF #theFFFeed @thefffeed
