Let’s get a few things straight right now.
Healthy Eating Is About More Than Counting Calories
Perhaps one of the biggest mistakes I often see being made is people who think that all they need to do to lose weight is count calories. They literally turn themselves into a walking calorie counter, tracking every single morsel of food that goes into their mouths.
As long as they control that number they think success will be theirs.
While this does put them off to a great start and counting calories is going to help them see better results than if they didn’t count them, it takes more than that to successfully lose weight.
To your body, a calorie isn’t just a calorie. You process certain foods differently, thus they have a different effect on your body. Take protein rich foods for instance. When you consume protein rich foods, your body actually expends more energy just breaking that protein down compared to if you had consumed carbohydrates or dietary fats. Therefore, you net fewer calories. This means those foods can actually give you an edge when it comes to fat loss.
Likewise with dietary fiber that exists naturally in many fruits, vegetables and grains. Your body won’t readily absorb all the calories found in higher fiber foods, therefore when you consume it, you’ll actually excrete some of that energy out. For the average gram of non-fiber carbohydrate, you’ll net 4 calories while for fiber-rich carbs you’ll net just 2 calories.<
