The worst trap in which people always caught in is the belief that calories are the only reason why they gain weight. Having that in mind, they think that the only way to lose weight is to reduce their daily calories. Of course this is true, but that is not the end of the story. The thing is that the calories from healthy fats aren’t equal in value with those from sugar.
So, generally, cleverness is not only people related, it is also food related! Specifically, there are calories that fill people’s bodies with energy without adding harmless fat in it and that fat is the one we need. These calories are the clever ones and you should start consuming whether you aim to lose weight or just want the best for your health and body!
All foods have calories
Calories are everywhere and that is not a bad thing! Because of them we can have energy and face our daily routines with strength. They are necessary and our body needs them for necessary functions. However, some people are afraid of consuming calories or they are obsessed with counting and tracking them, believing that they have to avoid them in order to lose weight. Nevertheless, there is a half side of calories’ history that is as bright as their benefits
What are clever calories?
If someone is used to following a diet with refined, processed and high sugar foods, they have no chance for weight loss. Their body would store these fats and they wouldn’t have the possibility to burn all of them. But if the individual prefers to consume healthy fats, lean protein and carbs, they can eat a lot more food and lose weight at the same time!
The secret is that all of us should prefer to eat foods with nutritional value rather than the ones which have nothing to offer us, but stored fat in our body. And these are the clever calories, which are included in foods with sometimes high amount of calories or high amount of fat. The point is that we need this kind of calories and fat!
What should you eat?
Did you know that there are hormones which control metabolism, losing or gaining weight, mood and hunger? These hormones are influenced by the food we eat. If you choose the right food, you will see your life changing! Here’s a list of foods with clever calories:
- Fruits and berries
- Seeds, nuts and peanuts
- Olive oil, coconut oil, butter from grass-fed cows
- Whole grains (brown rice, oats, quinoa)
- Meats (lean beef, chicken breasts, lamb)
