Nasty Evil Calories!
Many people believe that calories are evil or not good for you. Calories are just a way to measure the amount of energy you get from a food and aren’t bad for you. What is bad for you is high levels of sodium,fat, and sugar. Many women believe that low calorie diets are the way to go but there’s something wrong there. If something has ”low” anything, usually there is a high in something else. This isn’t necessarily always true but can be most of the time. For example: If something has low calories it may have high sodium. This is the sort of thing you should be looking out for and not worry about counting your calories. The most important thing is to eat wholesome foods that are proven to be good for you. Stay away from foods that do nothing for your body and focus on the nutrients. It is okay to not follow a diet as long as you are making sure to eat things with plenty of nutrients.
Eat based on your Needs
Depending on what kind of activity you are involved in, your body may need different things. An example would be that someone doing heavy cardio would have no need to be chugging protein drinks all the time. Someone who takes part in heavy cardio regularly would need plenty of carbohydrates. If you have a need for carbohydrates you can make them healthy. Foods like wild brown rice or regular brown rice, quinoa, and couscous. Staying away from white carbohydrates will help with your daily needs. If you are a doing weight training then you are going to need more protein. Green foods are always a very good form of carbohydrates. If you are doing a combination of both cardio and weight training then you need to adjust accordingly. Some days you may need more of something. The point of this is to tell you that instead of stressing about calories and eating on a strict diet, you just need to make sure you are eating good foods!
