Calories: The Good and Bad

Updated: Aug 17, 2020

I know making a commitment to have healthier eating habits is a tough one. And knowing how to implement that commitment may be even harder. Where do you start? What foods should you eat, and which ones should you stay away from? These are all questions you should answer before going out to the grocery store.

We need nutrients to survive. We need vitamins, minerals and calories consistently. There are two types of nutrients. Micro-nutrients are our vitamins and minerals and macro-nutrients are where our calories come from. The three types of macro-nutrients are fat, carbohydrates and proteins.

Many of you imagine that all fats are awful and recently started thinking all carbohydrates are awful as well. That leaves us with just protein. On the off chance that this were the situation, our weight control plans wouldn't be truly charming. Luckily not all fats are terrible and the equivalent goes for carbohydrates.

With all the negative publicity recently, you might be afraid to eat any carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are our main fuel source. Our mind can't use anything else to power itself with and our muscles will work the best on it. Try not to deny yourself of it. Carbohydrates that you should stay away from are simple sugars that are found in candy, sodas and many snacks. Good carbohydrates such as whole wheat and fruits will keep you energized throughout the day and avoid sugar highs and lows.

Fats are also very important. Without fat, our body wouldn't have the option to use a portion of the vitamins we consume. Fat is found in our cell walls and makes up a major piece of hormones. Fats you should keep away from are saturated fats that come in meat, milk and dairy items. Everybody should consume good (unsaturated fats) that come from plant sources such as nuts and olives.
