Hi Shane Ellison for The People's Chemist . com
And today I want to address how to count calories properly
If your goal is to lose fat and build muscle you must maintain a calorie deficit that means
you have to burn more calories than you consume.
However there's a right way and a wrong way if you learn both of them, you can have your
ideal weight without deprivation and denial or having to have will power to overcome nagging
hunger for days on end.
The right way to count calories is to count calories from satiating foods.
That means you count calories that satisfy your hunger hormones. Which are things like,
healthy fats, proteins and vegetables. Foods like, grass fed beef, whole eggs, seeds, nuts,
coconut oil, butter and avocado.
By counting these calories you master your hormones and therefore curb your appetite
over longer periods. Which is going to help you achieve that calorie deficit.
The wrong way to count calories is to count calories that come from low fat and low calorie
foods, and grains.
They won't satisfy your hunger.
These types of foods raise your hunger hormones, which means that no matter how much you eat
you'll be forced into consuming too many calories.
In other words, 100 calories from a donuts are not going to satisfy you like 100 calories
from a fried egg.
Once you start counting the right calories, you'll be able to maintain a caloric deficit,
and thus achieve your best body.
