Das hätten wir nie gedacht ...

Die Britin Lucy Mountain ist ganz offensichtlich sportlich, fit und figurbewusst.

Lucy beschäftigt sich viel mit Fitness und Ernährung

Doch sie verzichtet keineswegs auf Süßigkeiten, Chips und Co.! Lucy weiß einfach nur, wie sie all das richtig dosiert. In ihrem Blog thefffeed klärt sie ihre Follower in puncto Food-Irrglauben auf: Dort vergleicht sie die Anzahl der Kalorien in vermeintlich gesunden und ungesunden Snacks. Dabei gibt es einige Überraschungen – sieh selbst.

Anstelle von Nüssen kannst du auch eine Handvoll Fruchtgummis essen – zumindest, wenn es dir nur um die Kalorienzahl geht:

A handful of Almonds vs. A packet of Fruit Pastels 🍬⠀ ⠀ Both snacks have the same calories. Which one would you pick?⠀ ⠀ Occasionally I’m the left hand, but mostly I’m the right hand. (I know, shocking. A person who considers themselves into health and fitness eats sweets - and is openly talking about it on social media.) 🌝🌝🌝⠀ ⠀ You see, although I’m fully aware that a handful of almonds contains lots of wonderful nutrients that would keep me fuller for longer, some days (no matter whether I’m looking to gain, maintain or lose weight) I’ll choose to eat sweets or a chocolate bar as a snack 💪⠀ ⠀ Why? Because when the majority of my diet has consisted of well-balanced food that’s full of micronutrients, I have no issue eating something thats less so just because I love the taste of it. This is just a personal choice. Cutting out things I love isn’t realistic for me so I always squeeze something sweet into my days (all whilst still sticking to my calorie/macro/micro targets.)⠀ ⠀ Many would choose the almonds for the nutritional value or the flavour - which is totally fine. Many would choose the almonds because even though they'd prefer Fruit Pastels, almonds would make them feel more ‘on track’ mentally - which again, is totally fine 💕⠀ ⠀ I’m not glorifying sweets, or almonds for that matter. I’m glorifying knowing what’s in the food you’re eating, and make educated decisions based on your own values. And I value food that’s good for my body and good for my soul.⠀ ⠀ ‘Healthy' to me is exactly what I make it. And Fruit Pastels (in moderation) make me happy which I believe contributes largely to my overall health 🙌⠀ ⠀ #FFFoodForThought #theFFF

Statt einer ganzen nur eine halbe Avocado, den Feta durch Hüttenkäse ersetzen – und schwupps, reduziert sich die Kalorienzahl fast um die Hälfte:

Frühstückskekse im Kalorien-Vergleich:

Hier unterscheidet sich nur der Fettgehalt des Fleisches und die Ölmenge, in der angebraten wurde:

Auch hier unterscheiden sich nur Kleinigkeiten wie der Fettgehalt des Joghurts:

The OG has arrived. Spot the difference 🔍⠀ ⠀ Each side has the same amount of food but the left side has 550 calories less than the right.⠀ ⠀ I know I say the same shit every post but let's get my lil disclaimers out the way first because they're important:⠀ ⠀ 1. I'm v. v. v. aware calories don't necessarily mean 'healthy'.⠀ 2. However if you're looking for weight-loss/gain having an awareness will help.⠀ 3. Each day of food is just an example and not what you should necessarily aim for.⠀ ⠀ So let's talk differences;⠀ - OJ = Reduced Sugar vs 'Normal'⠀ - Porridge Almond Milk = Unsweetened vs Sweetened⠀ - Salad Dressing = Light vs. 'Normal'⠀ - Oil to Bake Potato = Light vs. Olive Oil⠀ - Tuna Mayo = Light vs. 'Normal'⠀ - Beef = 5% fat vs. 12% fat⠀ - Oil to Cook Veg = Light vs. Olive Oil⠀ - Yoghurt = 0% Fage vs. 2% Fage⠀ This is just to show you don't have to necessarily eat less food. Small swaps can make a big difference 🙌 ⠀ (And yes I eat chocolate bars. The kind you get from a newsagents. And still consider myself 'healthy' 💕)⠀ Left side:⠀ ⠀ Breakfast:⠀ - 40g Oats⠀ - 3 Strawberries⠀ + 200ml Unsweetened Almond Milk⠀ + 225ml Reduce Sugar Orange Juice⠀ ⠀ Lunch:⠀ - 1 Potato⠀ - 100g Salad⠀ - 1 tin Tuna⠀ + 15ml Light Caesar Dressing⠀ + Frylight Spray⠀ + 1 tbsp Lighter Light Mayo⠀ ⠀ Dinner:⠀ - 125g Golden Veg Rice⠀ - 80g Mushrooms⠀ - 60g Peas⠀ - 100g Chopped Tomatoes⠀ + 125g 5% Fat Beef⠀ + Frylight Spray⠀ ⠀ Desert:⠀ - 150g Apple + Grapes⠀ + 0% Fage Greek Yoghurt⠀ ⠀ Snacks:⠀ - 30g Almonds⠀ - 1 Chocolate bar⠀ + 3 Mini Babybel Lights⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Right Side:⠀ ⠀ Breakfast:⠀ - 40g Oats⠀ - 3 Strawberries⠀ + 200ml Sweetened Almond Milk⠀ + 225ml Orange Juice⠀ ⠀ Lunch:⠀ - 1 Potato⠀ - 100g Salad⠀ - 1 tin Tuna⠀ + 15ml Caesar Dressing⠀ + 0.5 tbsp Olive Oil⠀ + 1 tbsp Mayo⠀ ⠀ Dinner:⠀ - 125g Golden Veg Rice⠀ - 80g Mushrooms⠀ - 60g Peas⠀ - 100g Chopped Tomatoes⠀ + 125g 12% Fat Beef⠀ + 1 tbsp Olive Oil⠀ ⠀ Desert:⠀ - 150g Apple + Grapes⠀ + Fage Greek Yoghurt⠀ ⠀ Snacks:⠀ - 30g Almonds⠀ - 1 Chocolate bar⠀ + 3 Mini Babybels⠀ ⠀ #theFFF #theFFFeed @thefashionfitnessfoodie

Essig-Salz-Chips haben tatsächlich weniger Kalorien als die gleiche Menge Gemüsechips:

Vollmilchschokolade gewinnt gegen Zartbitter – whaaaaaat?

100g Milk Chocolate vs 100g 85% Dark Chocolate 🍫 ⠀ ⠀ So it’s pretty unknown that dark chocolate actually has more calories than milk chocolate (and white chocolate for that matter.)⠀ ⠀ Dark is often given the label as the ‘healthy’ version of chocolate. And although calories aren’t the sole indicator of ‘healthy’, we just presume it has lower calories. So which one is best for weight-loss?⠀ ⠀ In most cases, Dark chocolate has less sugar, more fiber and more iron than milk. It’s basically more nutritious than milk chocolate.⠀ ⠀ Regardless, I will always go for milk for two reasons:⠀ ⠀ 1. I think Dark chocolate tastes like garden leaves.⠀ ⠀ 2. Chocolate isn’t something I’ll seek out when I’m looking to pack in those vitamins and minerals - especially in a diet that already consists of adequate fruit, vegetables and micronutrient-dense food 🥗 I enjoy chocolate for it’s taste, not it’s nutritional value. My diet is inclusive of it always - no matter what my goal is at the time 💪⠀ ⠀ For those of who genuinely love dark chocolate, keep doing you 💕. However if you PREFER the taste of milk, but force yourself to eat dark because you've read it’s 'healthier', just have the milk chocolate and enjoy it 💪 In terms of weight-loss from a calorie perspective, it’s actually more beneficial and will raise happiness levels by 938% (unproven stat.)⠀ ⠀ Don’t eat things you don’t enjoy for the sake of it. Personal enjoyment is ‘healthy’ in my eyes 💁🏼 Which side are you guys?!⠀ ⠀ #theFFF
