As much as we like to talk about the big picture of metabolism and not getting too caught up in the minutiae of calorie intake, it does matter how much you eat and then how much you burn up.
It is fully possible to get fat on healthy foods. Read and understand this article coming in to Christmas and make smart ‘big picture’ decisions. Remember that unless you are in so called ‘maintenance’ mode and have a good handle and control of energy in, versus energy out fluctuations, you should be erring on the side of less rather than more at this time of year.
Whilst the science around exact calorie calculations might be a little sketchy it is an inescapable fact that an excess is going to sit around the waist or settle on the hips with often devastating effects on your health.
Understand how the body works and be aware of the negative effects of too much in and not enough out at this critical time of year. Keep moving and make smart eating decisions folks so next year will be your best ever! That’s not just a throw away line. Why wouldn’t you try and make each year better than the last no matter how ‘good’ you think you are? In my mind there is only forward or back.
Which way do you want to go?
