EAT THIS INSTEAD OF THAT: 15 Surprising Food Comparisons That Can Help Upgrade Your Diet

Scrambled eggs, chicken breasts, and fresh apples are undoubtedly good for your health. Though, it turns out that these, and many more other products, can be swapped with even better alternatives. Tofu, hummus, beans, and almond butter can benefit your diet way better because they are filled with useful elements. Also, they can save you money, since most of them are pretty cheap and available almost anywhere.

 

1. A cheaper and healthier alternative to beef

2. Tofu is a very nutritious breakfast variant.

3. More of a snack for less calories.

Popcorn is a 100% whole grain snack filled with fiber, antioxidants, complex fats, and almost no calories. Combined with a couple of nuts, it makes the perfect bowl full of food.

4. Fruit snacks can easily be enhanced.

Just a small addition of almond butter to your fruits will allow you to stay full for longer, with no harm to your figure.

5. An alternative that is rich in fiber and protein.

6. Processed snacks can be replaced with their natural variants.

7. The right sweets, eaten in moderation, can be just as healthy.

8. White rice can be replaced with brown, which is better nutritionally.

9. Lentils will fill you with energy better than meat.

10. Hummus is a good alternative to some nuts, which can be too high in calories.

11. Not all the drinks sold as diet products actually benefit your diet.

12. This is how many calories hide in different types of bread.

13. Same taste, but less sugar and calories.

14. Regular or diet cornflakes — both have a lot of sugar in them.

15. Calorie reducing meat swaps

Vegan Claims Eggs Are Worse For You Than Smoking

Vegan Claims Eggs Are Worse For You Than Smoking

Plant Based Barb made the claims, but science unfortunately proves otherwise

It’s no secret that smoking is one of the worst things you could for your health.

So much so, the government have set an ambitious target to have eradicated smoking in the UK by 2030.

But according to one vegan blogger, there is something even more detrimental to your health than smoking – and it’s something overwhelming numbers of us are guilty of.

According to a woman going by the Twitter handle ‘Plant Based Barb‘, eating eggs is worse than smoking.

Smoking is definitely worse (Image: Getty Images/Westend61)

So how did she work this out?

In a recent tweet she wrote: “One egg = five cigarettes!?

In response to Barb’s claims there was mostly skepticism  – and many questions.

Using the same misinformation tactics I could argue cigarettes are mostly 100% plant based, therefore all plant based products are harmful and will kill you.

See how stupid that is?

— a mystery wrapped in a taco (@Form52) July 23, 2019

As for the truth about eggs,  Victoria Taylor, senior dietitian at the  British Heart Foundation , told LadBIBLE: “In the past it was thought that people should limit the number of eggs they eat to three to four a week because they contain cholesterol. It is the egg yolks that have the cholesterol.

“However, the misconceptions around eggs and cholesterol largely stemmed from incorrect conclusions drawn from early research that dietary cholesterol contributed to raised blood cholesterol levels.

“Now current research shows that for most healthy people, cholesterol in food, such as eggs, has a much smaller effect on blood levels of total cholesterol and harmful LDL cholesterol, especially when compared with the much greater and more harmful effects of saturated fatty acids found in foods such as butter and fatty meat.

“Eggs are, in fact, low in saturated fat.

“Recent research has also shown that moderate egg consumption – up to one a day – does not increase heart disease risk in healthy individuals and can be part of a healthy diet.”

So by all means quit smoking – but don’t quit your eggs.

The Pescatarian Diet Of A Gracie MMA Fighter

On this episode of FUEL, we try to keep up with jiu-jitsu and MMA fighter, Kron Gracie. Meat free for more than a year, Gracie’s diet is anything but typical for a fighter. Follow along as Kron fuels himself through the brutal days of training that have made him so dominant on the mat.

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, into the legendary Gracie family, fighting came second nature to Kron. He followed in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps, advancing through the ranks of jiu-jitsu before his MMA debut in 2014. Known for keeping his cool under pressure, Kron earned his nickname “Ice Cream Kron,” but you’d be hard pressed to find this fighter snacking on ice cream these days.

He relies on light, natural snacks and lots of liquids to power himself through daily mini-triathlons, followed by hours of leading his students through jiu-jitsu training – all before eating his first solid meal of the day.

7 Everyday Foods That Might Make You Fat

Sticking to a healthy eating habit should be easy if we steer clear of junk food and unhealthy food. Or so we think. The truth, however, is a bit different.

If you take a look at some of the most common foods that surprisingly work against you, you will soon realize that all that glitters is not gold or, in other words, not everything that is considered healthy is necessarily good for you.

Breakfast Cereal

For most people, cereals are among the things that come to mind when thinking about a healthy meal to kick-start the day. If you are one of them, then it might come as a shock to find out that they are actually one of the worsts.

Cereals contain high amounts of sugar which is the epitome of fattening ingredients and hikes up your blood sugar and insulin level. Add the refined carbs with zero nutritional value to that and you will feel hungry all day long.

If you really are a fan of cereals in the morning, you should at least make sure that you select whole grain products which contain minimum 3 g of fibers and less than 10 grams of sugar per serving.

Whole Wheat Bread

This is another type of food marketed as healthy and weight- friendly. The fact is most whole wheat bread is not entirely made of whole grains and because of that it has a high glycemic index.

It is usually made of grains processed into a fine, pulverized flour that reaches your system and increases your blood sugar as quickly as refined grains from white bread.

Also, wheat can cause problems to people with gluten sensitivity, therefore it is not recommended for every type of diet. If you’re not sensitive to that, best thing to do is look for 100% whole wheat or whole grains.

Low-fat Yogurt

Yogurt is known to provide calcium and is considered a good option for a healthy diet. The problem, however, is mostly with low-fat yogurt, which is nowhere close to being the ally against gaining weight, as the name suggests.

To compensate the lack of saturated fat whose removal alters the taste, yogurt is spiked with sugar, fructose or other artificial sweeteners. On top of that, they are highly processed and, therefore, high in calories,  a definite no go for a healthy diet.

To make sure you eat the right thing, try plain, fat-free yogurt, such as Greek yogurt, and add your own combination of fresh fruits and honey for a better taste.

Commercial Salad Dressings

Usually, any combination of vegetables is healthy and full of nutrients, antioxidants and vitamins. However, when the taste of leafy greens is not enough and you start to add dressings, things take a wrong turn.

Most such products contain soybean oil or corn syrup and can be high in calories.

A healthier option would be to make your own dressing using extra virgin olive oil, vinegar and spices of your choice to make it tastier.

Diet Soft Drinks

Diet drinks seem to be a good replacement for sugar-sweetened drinks in the attempt to reduce the sugar and calories intake. However, this switch does not necessarily mean any weight loss but on the contrary.

Because diet soft drinks include artificial sweeteners, although they have no calories, they can make you feel hungrier and prone to eating more, thus gaining weight.

Ideally, if you’ve taken this step and resorted to drinking diet soft drinks, you should be careful and also keep an eye out for what you eat in support of a healthy diet.

Organic” Foods

Many people think organic foods are a healthier alternative to conventional foods. And they usually are unless we are talking about processed organic food.

Processed organic foods are still high in calories and added fats just like inorganic foods. Sugar has the same adverse effect and your body won’t tell the difference between the sources sugar is coming from.

The idea is to try and consume one-ingredient foods and avoid everything that is processed, even if it is labeled as organic.

Gluten-Free Junk Foods

Gluten-free is the craze nowadays. More and more people are trying to exclude gluten from their diets and resort to all kinds of gluten-free products which are said to promote weight loss, boost energy and improve overall health.

However, even if it is gluten free, this type of food can still contain carbohydrates and sugar which is not exactly the best combination when trying to stay healthy or lose weight.  Also, it is low in nutrients, therefore, stimulates your appetite more.

If you want to reduce or eliminate the amount of gluten in your diet, opt for naturally gluten-free substitutes like fruits and vegetables, eggs, unprocessed seeds and meats.
