This is a question a lot of us ask ourselves. Along with ‘how much pasta is REALLY too much, surely a bit extra is ok?’
Just me? Alrightey then …
Everyone has a different view on what’s healthy and what’s not. And everyone’s different, so what might be well suited to one person won’t necessarily be the same for you. To someone who is looking to get leaner, a lower calorie option might be considered ‘healthy’.
To someone who is looking to build muscle mass, a high calorie & high protein option might be considered ‘healthy’.
So whether it’s ‘healthy’ or not is entirely based upon you and your goal.
Of course, certain foods are more packed with way more nutrients and are much more beneficial to our body than others.
For example 200 calories of broccoli and 200 calories of gummy bears have the same amount of energy; however, they will have a different effect on your hunger, and mood.
It’s important to be aware of these differences so that you can take ownership of your diet.
Take some time to work out what your ‘healthy’ is and what you want to achieve. Is this goal realistic for your current lifestyle?
What is the most best way of getting there and what other things do you value in your life?
I value my overall wellness, my social life and a pizza at least one night a week. Do you?
