I truly believe that we are what we eat and that you cannot out train a bad diet. if you eat well i really do not see the need to count calories as your body will let you know when it is satiated, you will be a healthy weight and you will feel great.
Good food does not have to be expensive, nor does it have to be complicated and so i have created 5 S.M.A.R.T Ingredients simple food packed full of good fats, vitamins and minerals, good protein.
My dishes have limited carbohydrates as vegetables and fruit contain them and as a nation we tend to overeat, potatoes,pasta and rice and our bodies do not use up the energy they provide so we gain weight. Having said that if you feel you want to add some of these ingredients to the list then add in moderation and make sure that they are the wholegrain variety
All calories are not equal, so for example a can of coke with 100 calories is not the same as a handful of almonds with 100 calories as your body deals with them differently, when you drink a can of coke it is full of fructose which is a sugar and is found in most processed foods and drinks and is only metabolized by the liver and when it hits the liver it is converted in to fat and it does not let your brain know that you are full up so you can drink a lot of it and get no nutritional value at all and over time you gain weight.
Almonds on the other hand contain a lot of fibre and so take longer to go through the body keeping you full and will provide you with such good nutrition like Vitamin E, Manganese and magnesium for healthy brain function and nervous system and healthy fats, i know what i would rather have.
Do not waste your money or compromise your health on overly processed foods. Where possible buy organic or free range.
Invest in a good multi vitamin and some omega 3 capsules as our soil is so depleted of essential nutrients we cannot get them all from our foods.
