A common belief is that in order to lose weight, slim people must cut out what is called “junk food.” However, in practice this may not be the case.In a conversation with Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield this morningnutritionist Graham Tomlinson suggested that you can still eat processed foods while trying to shed fat.
Graeme argued that losing weight isn’t necessarily what we eat.
Instead, the most important factor is weight loss A calorie deficit occurs when a person consumes fewer calories than they consume in a day.
In contrast, a calorie surplus person consumes more calories than they consume in a day.
Experts have argued that being calorie deficient is the “only scientific way” you can lose weight.
Does this mean that people can eat donuts, cakes and potato chips and still lose weight?
“You can eat whatever you want and still lose weight as long as you’re not getting enough calories,” he said.
exercisewhich counts as “energy expenditure,” but also helps create this calorie deficit because you burn calories through your workout.
According to Graeme, people who are losing weight should not always choose the “healthiest” option.
Do not miss it…
For example, a chocolate bar may actually have fewer calories than a nutritious cereal bar stuffed with ingredients such as fruits and nuts.
He distinguished between calories and nutrients. “Calories determine her weight and nutrients contribute to her health.”
Experts gave another example of Coca-Cola and green smoothies. The results may come as a surprise to those on a diet.
When presented with each glass, the fizzy drink contained 315 calories, while the fruit and vegetable jam-filled smoothie contained 432 calories.
Despite the fact that smoothies are arguably more nutritious, Graeme insisted that Coca-Cola was “a better weight loss option.”
However, choose fizzy drinks over fizzy drinks, even though they have fewer calories vegetable-Rich smoothies mean you’re missing out on important nutrients.
When it comes to popular breakfasts, slim people might be surprised to find that smashed avocado on toast actually does a disservice in terms of calories.
Avocados are nutrient-rich, high in fiber, and full of healthy fats.
However, this fruit is also relatively high in calories (about 250 calories for a medium avocado).
Eating avocado on toast with a slice of bread provides a whopping 505 calories, according to Graeme.
On the other hand, a slice of toast topped with a thin slice of bacon and a fried egg will add up to 360 calories.
So, despite avocado’s overall benefits, toast fry-ups may be a better choice for those seeking a calorie deficit.
But experts pointed out that while dieters can track calories to lose weight, it’s also important to measure the nutritional value of foods.
This is the key to overall well-being and functional health.
