Lo stesso alimento ma diverse calorie, i falsi cibi sani da evitare per una dieta corretta

Quante volte abbiamo pensato che quel piatto di frutta potesse essere un buona e sana merenda o che quell'insalata così condita fosse un pasto light? Nulla di più sbagliato! Ecco come cambiano le calorie di un piatto in base ad alcuni piccoli accorgimenti
- - Ultimo aggiornamento

Il nostro obiettivo è chiaramente sempre lo stesso: perdere peso facendo quante meno rinunce possibile a tavola. Ecco che quindi optiamo per alimenti ‘alternativi’ dalle presunte qualità ‘bruciagrassi’ al posto del nostro cibo tradizionale. Ma facciamo sempre la scelta giusta?

–> Fai questi esercizi fisici tutti i giorni per dimagrire? Attenta, ecco il pericolo che corri: cosa si rischia

Non sempre alla nostra percezione corrisponde una realtà e, a volte, scegliere un cibo ‘più sano’ ci porta ad assumere più calorie del dovuto.

Ecco i falsi cibi sani da evitare per una dieta corretta

A venirci incontro sono alcune influencer specializzate in alimentazione, come Lucy Mountain e Paula Norris, che sulle loro pagine ci illustrano come due piatti perfettamente uguali nell’aspetto possano portare più o meno calorie alla nostra dieta. L’importante è stare attenti e saper cogliere tutti i dettagli che possono appesantire o meno una ricetta.

Partiamo dalla colazione. Una ciotola perfettamente identica ad un’altra può nascondere alcuni segreti. Il trucco per avere meno calorie è diminuire le porzioni di cereali, sostituire la frutta disidratata con quella fresca e rivolgersi allo yogurt magro invece che a quello normale.

SMALL CHANGE DIET ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While 170 Calories difference doesn’t seem huge, a few small changes like this across the day can be the difference between weight gain, maintenance and loss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3 almost unnoticeable changes like this across your day will cut the calories required to lose 0.5kg per week. So while 170 Calories doesn’t sound like much, it can help you get to your goals. And because the difference between these bowls in bulk is minimal, both will be filling! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On the left 🔹3/4 cup muesli 🔹100g full fat yoghurt 🔹1Tbsp sultanas 🔹1/4 cup mixed berries 🔹1 Tbsp Chia seeds 🔹1 tsp Pomegranate seeds ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On the Right 🔸1/2 cup muesli 🔸100g reduces fat yoghurt 🔸3/4 cup mixed berries 🔸2 tsp Chia seeds 🔸1 tsp Pomegranate seeds

Un altro alimento che va per la maggiore tra gli amanti della dieta ‘sana’ è l’avocado, meglio se in insalata. Ma a ben guardare una sola fetta di avocado contiene le stesse calorie di una abbondante porzione di ortaggi e verdure.

Veniamo agli snack. Secondo voi è più salutare sgranocchiare delle patatine o un mix di verdure disidratate? È meglio mangiare delle mandorle o degli smarties? In entrambi i casi la risposta vi stupirà. Delle semplici patatine salate contengono – a parità di quantità – meno calorie di un mix di frutta e verdura dried.

Salt and Vinegar Crisps vs Vegetable Crisps 🥔⠀ ⠀ Each of these bowls contain 1 bag (40g) of crisps. The bowl on the left are salt and vinegar, the bowl on the right are mixed root vegetable.⠀ ⠀ Although the difference in calories is pretty minuscule, you’d expect the vegetable crisps to be considerably less calories right? This is just another little reminder that often there’s not much difference between the product marketed as the ‘healthy alternative’ and the real thing. So go for the thing you actually WANT to eat 🙌⠀ ⠀ Although there are many different aspects that describe ‘healthy’ (yes – it IS subjective), such as salt content, micro-nutrient value and how that food makes them feel, calories play a fundamental part in weight management. This post isn’t to say 'TRACK EVERYTHANG, TRACK THAT DAMN CUCUMBER’, it’s more about looking at your diet within the context of a whole day – and eating the damn salt and vinegar crisps if that’s want you actually want.⠀ ⠀ I want this and all my comparison posts to give encourage freedom with your food choices, not restriction. When 80% of my diet within a day is full of adequate micros and macros, i will ALWAYS eat food I love purely for taste. Because life. Ygm. 💁🏼⠀ ⠀ (All crisps are vegetable crisps 🌝)⠀ ⠀ Which side are you guys going for?⠀ ⠀ ⠀ *Crisps from Co-Op Irresistible range* – #theFFF #theFFFeed @thefffeed

Quanto agli smarties-M&Ms e alle mandorle, il segreto sta nello zucchero. Assumerne meno non significa necessariamente meno calorie!

Alongside it taking 7 years to digest chewing gum, and bread crusts making your hair curly*; the 'sugar causes weight gain' thing is yet another foodie myth. ⠀ ⠀ Sugar doesn’t escape the rules of energy balance 💃 Eating less calories (energy) than you use will result in weight loss, and eating more calories (energy) than you use will results in weight gain 🙌 Reason’s why it’s associated with weight gain;⠀ ⠀ 1. It’s tasty af so it’s easy to eat in excess (and therefore eat more calories.)⠀ 2. The food containing it are often not very filling and/or calorie-dense, so it’s easy to eat in excess (and eat therefore more calories.)⠀ 3. #insulin. However the correlation between increased insulin secretion in high carb diets and weight gain has been falsified. (@danprice_639pt article in story 🧠)⠀ ⠀ We know it’s important to be fuelling ourselves with nutritious food that keep our bodies functioning nicely. But it’s also important to not restrict and make ourselves stressed tf out about eating foods we enjoy. 🍬🍬🍬⠀ ⠀ P.s. why did Mums use that bread crust thing as a bribe? We wanted Rachel Green poker straight hair duh.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 1. Morenga et al (2013)⠀ #theFFF

Chiudiamo con i drink. Tutti sappiamo che l’alcol è pieno di calorie, ma tra un bicchiere di vino, un gin tonic e un cocktail alla frutta qual è l’opzione migliore? Contrariamente ad ogni percezione, il gin tonic batte di gran lunga le altre due opzioni…. la presenza di frutta non li rende certo meno calorici!

Alcohol generally falls into the category of ‘shit I need to give up’ when starting a new fitness programme 🍹 This is generally for three reasons;⠀ ⠀ 1. Alcohol can be pretty calorific. Of course, fat-loss is just one goal in the wide spectrum of #fitness – but if it is yours, regular w-a-v-e-y nights out can make it a little tricky to stay in a calorie deficit 🙌⠀ ⠀ 2. Similarly, when we’re w-a-v-e-y, we often get peckish for a gourmet burger from the local chip van (*anecdotal evidence*)⠀ ⠀ 3. And when we’re hungover, our food choices aren’t generally going to be in the interest of what’s most nutritious. And likelihood of moving off the couch is reduced.⠀ ⠀ The lesser-talked about one is that alcohol does actually negatively impacts ‘muscle protein synthesis’ (aka muscle repair / muscle growth / ‘gainz’)⠀ ⠀ Does this mean you shouldn’t drink alcohol if you want to drink alcohol? Absolutely not 🍸 The social benefits and ‘life-gainz’ made from going out with your mates is definitely an element of ‘health’ in my eyes.⠀ ⠀ It’s just perhaps something to practice moderation with. Whether that’s switching to a clear spirit and diet soda (arguably a little easier), limiting the number of drinks you have (arguably a little harder), or just reducing the amount you’re going out getting wasted in general 💃⠀ ⠀ So yeah. Alcohol can be a little difficult to practice moderation, predominantly because it looks like THIS *swipe left* after 4 drinks. But it’s certainly do-able (if that suits your goal and values, of course 🍹)⠀ ⠀ #theFFF
