It’s attracted a lot of criticism and in fairness
I can see where they’re coming from
(to a point)
The first nutrition video I shared with you last week
was all about the foundation of what I do with the lads in BPD.
And that foundation (of our nutrition program)
is to create a slight calorie deficit.
In other words, burn off more calories than we consume.
But here’s the deal
just solely focusing on the calorie content of food
is a pretty sh#tty way of looking at food.
If you just cared about calories, then technically you could just eat
say 5 mars bars a day, and still be in a calorie deficit.
Not exactly what you’d call healthy now is it?
And for that reason a lot people criticise focusing on calories.
But this why I love the pyramid system that I use.
It acknowledges that calories are important
but also makes sure that you don’t overlook
the basic health requirements you need from food.
All that fibre that helps your gut function properly.
As well as all those vitamins & minerals that are essential
for your optimal health.
So here’s the quick video link to explain it proper.
How we balance both the health side of nutrition
as well as the weight loss side.
