I’d love to! It’s actually fun to breakdown. When I first went through it all I found it really enlightening and calming. There’s so much content out in the world that can quickly become extremely confusing and muddled. It’s nice to just stop and really take a look at cold, hard fact.
So…let’s break this down!
Food: Any nutritious substance that is consumed in order to maintain and sustain life and growth and to repair and furnish energy.
Nutrient: A substance that provides nourishment essential for growth and the maintenance of metabolism and life.
Calorie: The energy needed to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water by 1 degree.
Food and nutrients are taken into the body to maintain life and growth, sustain growth and repair, provide energy, and support metabolism. There is nothing in the definition of a calorie about nutrition, growth, repair, building, healing, or anything about sustaining life. It is basically an energy producing potential. Yet calories are usually what people obsess over the most. But what most people miss is that not all calories are built the same.
One hundred calories of kale provides a TON of vital nutrients that allow your body to function properly and at a high level. The same one hundred calories of cinnamon buns contains little to no usable nutrients. Because of these facts, the “Calories in, calories out” mindset just doesn’t make sense
This is why it’s so crucial to break away from a calorie mindset. There are so many positive and negative factors that go into the usefulness or harm of each piece of food we consume. We need energy. We need nutrients. And so many people are missing crucial nutrient rich foods in their diets because of their fear of a unit of energy.
At the end of the day, If the majority of what you consume is nutrient rich, you will never have to worry about calories. Eat enough, eat often, educate yourself on what you’re consuming, and fill your life with food that will benefit you NOT foods that have the least amount of calories.
LETS GET HIGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!grades
