Health professionals have boiled nutrition down to calories in - calories out, particularly when discussing weight concerns. It's appealing to make it black and white, but is it accurate? In reality, it’s a gross oversimplification of nutrition, metabolism, and weight. There are far more variables in that equation, and today we’ll explain those variables + identify drawbacks to calories in, calories out. For more support + guidance, join our group coaching program at eatconfident.co/collective.
Today we’re talking about how to build meals and snacks that are nourishing AND satisfying. Too often people think it has to be one or the other - eating either foods that make you feel good, or foods you enjoy. That either/or mindset is exactly what keeps you stuck in an all or nothing relationship with food. We’re here to show you another way! For help finding the balance between nourishment + satisfaction, check out our Nourished + Satisfied cookbooks! Head to eatconfident.co/shop to learn more.
