Avoiding the Toxic Diet Culture – Part 2: Understanding Macronutrients

 

Join us for our Wellness Wednesday chat! We are continuing our KEEPING IT SIMPLE focus for February (to check out Part 1 CLICK HERE!)

 

Few areas around health and wellness have so much noise, BAD INFORMATION and confusion as nutrition.

 

Join us as we share a simple plan based on 3 principles:

(1) Portion control
(2) Balanced macronutrients (40/30/30)
(3) Eliminating highly processed foods

 

This isn’t a DIET it’s a simple way of eating that will help you reach your goals, whether you want to lose weight, maintain or gain weight / muscle.

 

Personally, we keep it simple and don’t eliminate any food groups.

 

HOWEVER, if you prefer any one of these nutritional theories:

✅ Plant-based
✅ Vegetarian
✅ Vegan
✅ Pescatarian
✅ Gluten free
✅ Paleo
✅ Nondairy
✅ Mediterranean

 

This nutrition plan will work for you too!

 

We will dig deep into the science, show you the HEALTH benefits and provide a simple way to implement it into your busy lifestyle.

 

Healthy looks different on everyone—and it’s important to understand how to avoid falling victim to toxic diet culture.

 

We will share how to navigate building a healthier mentality toward your relationship with food and turning your focus on sustainable habit changes rather than jumping on the fad diet bandwagon.

 

Today, in PART 2 we’ll help you understand macronutrients and the role they play in your health and wellness.

 

You may know the basics like carbohydrates provide 4 calories per gram, protein provides 4 calories per gram, and fat provides 9 calories per gram….but as we learned in Part 1, calories are not the end all / be all when it comes to OPTIMAL HEALTH (OR HEALTHY WEIGHT LOSS)!

 

Macronutrients are the nutritive components of food that the body needs for energy and to maintain the body’s structure and systems.

 

150 calories of a Snickers bar (or insert any Ultra Processed Food of Choice…Lean Cuisines, Oreos, Chips, Crackers, Cookies, Cakes, Big Mac, etc…..) creates much different reactions in your body than 150 calories of broccoli (or any other nutrient dense whole food of choice…nuts, legumes, lean protein, fruits, veggies, etc)!

 

Understanding macronutrients and their important roles can help weed through all the noise and confusion and can provide you with the motivation needed to eat with a balanced macronutrient plan.
