Calories : Good and Bad Calories (Part 2)


*Please read Part 1 here before continue!

We need to differentiate between good calories and bad calories. Calories are divided into two categories, which are good and bad. All foods and drinks have calories except plain water. For example, iced milo has 130 calories. Approximately, a curry puff has 60 calories. Chicken breasts and a packet of instant noodles have the same calories, which are 400 calories.

This is when the "good or bad" calories question kicks in. Usually, people like to choose instant noodles rather than chicken breast because who doesn't like Maggi, right? BUT if we are on a weight loss journey or we want a healthier lifestyle, we need to choose wisely.

Let us have a look at what we can get from 400 calories of chicken breast and instant noodles.

400 calories of a chicken breast have:
✅protein
✅instant full
✅help to produce more muscle mass in the body 👉🏼 burn more calories


400 calories of an instant noodle have:
✅fats
✅the rise of fat cells in the body
✅will easier to get hungry back
✅only have carbohydrates without protein
✅no good nutrition for the body

All of us need to understand that the same calorie intake will not have the same effect on our body. This really showed that even though we fulfill our body calorie requirement, but we only eat unhealthy food, we will still gain weight even though we did not exceed the calorie requirement.

For instance, a person needs to burn 1300 calories without work out. This means that if the person eats no more than 1300 calories, the person can lose weight, right?
.
BUT the person made a mistake by fulfilling his or her calorie with unhealthy food:

Morning
Nasi Lemak- 400 calories

Afternoon
Nasi Goreng Ayam - 800 calories

Night
Crackers - 100 calories

TOTAL= 1300 calories

This person's body can burn 1300 calories. Even though this person did not exceed the calorie requirement, this person still will experience a high percentage of fats in the body because of the lousy calorie intake.

This will risk with weight gain or can also lead to " slim but beer belly" or maybe slim but with a heart problem or worst becoming fat and excessive fats in the body.

In choosing food to eat every day, choose food with better nutrition quality rather than just look at the calorie intake. Diet coke can have 0 calories, but is it good? 






Is it essential to know about calories?

For those who understand the concept of good calorie, they will look at the food with different perspectives. All diets that we do exercise plan or health trend nowadays all expending because of the fact that everything is going back to "calorie deficit."

A calorie deficit is the total energy of food (calorie) that we take is less than calories that our body needs to burn every day for the body to function, which will lead to losing weight.

HOW MANY CALORIES DO WE NEED??

 🔥 Choose the fat loss option
✅ to enter the daily activity option honestly. If not exercising, choose not to exercise.

Here to remind all of us again. Imagine 7700 calories is equal to 1 kg of fat; this means eat more than 1000 calories in a week will gain 1 kg of fat.😱

Do not worry if we cannot memorize all the calories in food in this world. Just focus on this principle:

In one plate should have 
Carbohydrate = Rice 1 handheld
Protein/lauk = size of the hand palm
Fiber/clean veggies = the same with rice. If it' not a clean cook, then get rid in half.



So about calories, we can install the app called "MyFitnessPall" in our smartphone to kick in our food that we eat. They also put the calorie intake as well. Or we can also just google the number of calories of the food. Another tip is we can also type "nutrition fact" of the food to choose healthier food.

That's all about calories! This is so important because we consume calories every day! So it is a good choice for us to know more about how our body functions and what's good for our body!
