240kcals = 240kcals when looking at energy balance.
So yes, the options on the left are fine to eat if you’re looking to consume 240kcals.
However, they lack in protein and fibre, and thus are less satiating than the 242kcal option on the right.
The lack of satiation, and the fact they are hyper palatable, can lead to eating more and more helpings of 240kcals worth of biscuits, which in the grand scheme of things wouldn’t be great for your fat loss goals.
Creating a diet that includes a lot of high volume, lower calorie foods will lead you to feeling full, and satisfied, hopefully leading to less unnecessary snacking on low volume, high calorie foods.
PS. Never cut out biscuits completely. They go with tea. It would be wrong. The Queen will get angry. ...
Be willing to live a few years how most people won’t, so you can live the rest of your life how most people can’t.
Too many people focus on the past, that is what stops them from getting what they want. Live and plan for the future, and don’t stop working until you turn your dreams and goals into reality.
Positive affirmations every day. You attract what your deepest subconscious thoughts suggest, not what your conscious thought want.
Selfish in the short run, in order to be selfless in the long run.
What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become when achieving your goals.
Just a reminder of the hard work up until now and further motivation for the future.
This is only the beginning🙇♂️ ...
End of program recap 😁➡️
For the last 6 weeks I have been on a mini cut/in a calorie deficit/in a fat loss phase. I haven't spoken about this until now for several reasons, the main one being I knew I wanted to do it whatever anyone thought and this being the first time I have purposely reduced my calorie intake I knew I would be susceptible to other people's opinions so I decided to keep it to myself. .
After eating in a surplus since the start of the year I wanted to try and lose some of the additional body fat I had gained, as is perfectly normal during a calorie surplus/bulk. I had got to a stage where I didn't feel comfortable in myself and although I was happy with the muscle I was building the thickness around my middle was bothering me.
This has given me a focus for the last few weeks but I was determined it wasn't going to rule my life. I told myself I was going to stick to the 80/20 rule and some weeks I would have two meals completely un tracked, some weeks just one, the main goal was 5 full days of calorie deficit every week and although most weeks I managed more than this I didn't give myself a hard time for having a meal or snack which meant I went over my target. Lockdown is stressful enough without beating yourself up over calorie intake 🙌
Tomorrow I will share my progress photos after 6 weeks, explain more about my calorie intake and how I've found the last few weeks! 😁
Happy Saturday you lovely lot, remember you can do anything you put your mind to! 👊
