If you have a certain social media platform I’m sure recently you have seen the trend of comparing meals against each other, usually a healthy option vs an unhealthy option where calories, proteins, fats, and carbs are compared.
These posts are very interesting and they do promote a more flexible diet approach which I am all for, but there is an aspect that is not covered in these posts. Yes, you could eat the unhealthy meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and still fit in your macros but what effect would it have on you?
Would you start to feel lethargic?
Would your performance suffer?
Would you lack energy?
Would they make you feel fulfilled? Ease Hunger?
Would you be getting all your required vitamins/ minerals?
Could they be replaced with less caloric foods such as a piece of fruit?
Be mindful of what you eat and what effect it might have on your body. Of course, you can have the bad option occasionally but consistency is key.
