I read this yesterday and Jake lays this out so simple! I try to stress this to clients that whole foods are a better choice for many reasons. Thanks Jake for letting me re-blog your post.
Whole Foods Vs Processed Foods
This post has been inspired by some recent discussion with a few of my clients in regards to how certain foods that we eat react in the way that they do.
Pretty much every client that has worked with me, ends up eating more food than they were originally, whilst at the same time losing body fat, and gaining some muscle in the process.
How on earth is this humanly possible if they are consuming more calories? Well my friends, that is a very good question, and one that I am going to answer as simply as possible………
Let’s put foods into two categories for simplicity’s sake:
- Vegetables & fruits
- Lean meats & fish
- Pulses/Legumes (beans, lentils etc)
- Health fats (nuts, seeds, oily fish, eggs, avocados, coconut oil, olive oil)
- Ready meals/pre-packed meals
