Something to think about for those who want to lose weight. Demonizing carbohydrates by the media and popular blogs is fashionable and partly wrong. Here is why
- known as reductionist reasoning to single out one nutrient - not consider other factors such as activity level, how many calories ingested over time at a surplus, environment(how easy we make calories available to ourselves)
Hello everyone! This should have been the first blog post but better late than never. So, what is this blog all about you ask? Seeing that I have varying interest in the world of fitness, here are some categories of what I will write about in my blog. Most of it is opinion based, so take it with a grain of salt. If I do make a strong assertion, you can ask me how I got there or show me evidence that I am probably wrong. I don't mind that at all. So here is what you can expect from my blog:- helping consumers navigate bullshit from good advice
Here’s Part 4 of the “Where Did We Go Wrong” series. I’ve discussed where we went wrong with proteins, carbs, and water. So the only thing left to discuss for this series is fats. First and foremost, YOU SHOULD NOT BE AFRAID TO EAT FAT OR SEARCH FOR FAT-FREE FOODS!!!!
In Part 1 of this series I discussed where we went wrong with carbohydrates and in Part 2 I discussed where we went wrong with proteins. It only makes sense that Part 3 would consist of fats, but it’s not.Do you have any idea of what it will discuss then? I could go on and on about where we went wrong, but I’m trying to stay on track with macronutrients.
Last week I discussed in brief detail on where we are going wrong, but that still doesn’t answer where we went wrong.As you know, there is a TON of information out there. If you’re looking for answers, you can simply type something into Google and watch the auto-fill and links all start to pop up. A lot of those links will have different similar, but different information.
As some of you may already know, this month is Nutrition Awareness Month. The name itself says that we should create more awareness towards nutrition. That could go along the lines of just saying mindful eating.In short, you need to be aware of food. You need to start with the basics and that means you need to know food is just energy. Seriously. Food is nothing more than fuel.
We didn’t have it too bad when we were kids. We had cartoons, toys, and milk break. The hardest question we had to decide was, “Chocolate or White?” Well, for me it was anyways, and I almost always went with white milk (because I genuinely liked the taste of white milk, not because I was a weird kid or anything...), which then presented the question, “Skim or 2%.”Yeah, back in the day…
