YES! Did you know that around 97 out of the 100 calories from the french fries will end up stored as body fat and only three or so calories will be burned? It's true. French fries are what is commonly known as "empty calories." Little comparative nutrition With the rice option, you will burn around 20 or so calories, and the rest or the calories, (energy), will be stored away in the liver and muscles ready for exercise and activity.
I bring this up because nutrition and an effective exercise program work hand-in-hand to produce the best results possible. High fatty and sugary foods are like a drug...Even if you consume small portions, it can set you back on your fitness goals. And, like any drug, you can rationalize it by saying, "Well, I only had 100 calories worth of french fries." Knowing that your body processes calories differently is the first step in tackling weight loss.
The best option for an effective and proper nutrition program that assists your personal fitness goals is one made up of low-fat, high fiber foods, in portions that are allocated throughout the day rather than three big meals.
In addition, be a nutrition label hound. Read and compare nutrition labels to get the most "bang for the buck." Select foods with higher nutritional density. The reason is that higher nutritional food ratios, (foods that are lower in calories compared to their nutritional value), help turn on the fat metabolizing machine in your body. Choose lean protein foods such as white meat poultry, fish, and egg whites. Choose high fiber grains and vegetables, choose to hydrate with water, and avoid alcohol.
Step by step, you can reach your fitness goals by tackling the largest part of the fitness challenge...Your eating habits.
