It’s the Quality of Calories that Matters
Are calories matter? When it comes to calories, it’s the quality of the calories that matters. It’s about maximizing the nutrients per serving, and making sure there’s enough fiber, protein from healthy sources and good fats in each meal to feel healthfully full and fueled.
A daily intake of 1,500 calories of crap is not remotely nutritionally equivalent to 1,500 calories of greens, pasture-raised meats, and colorful veggies. If you eliminate processed foods from the equation and make whole foods your default, meals that are naturally high in satiating fiber and healthy fats, your body will be less prone to overeating.
