This is a quick post to just mention the fact that I am having serious guilt issues over my food.
I need some reassurance people!!
If I scrupulously add my calories, and I stay under the 2031 daily allowance this is OK right?
What I mean is... if I ate 2031 calories worth of Lettuce, its the same basic thing as 2031 calories of chocolate right?
It's still 2031 and therefore I expend more energy than I consume so I will still lose weight yeah?
Wow, I cant even believe I am asking this dumb question... but I just feel so GUILTY at eating some chocolate every day, even though I am way under my limit.
I mean, I lost 2.8kg this week but I still dont trust this basic maths... or believe it could possibly be this easy...
2000 cals of fish
2000 cals of plums
2000 cals of lard
2000 cals of pickled eggs
2000 cals of peanuts
2000 cals of celery
...they would all be in varying quantities - weight for weight they would differ... but they would all be 2000 cals!
2000cals of celery would be about a truck load but 2000cals of my favorite LaoGanMa Chilli paste would be only 280g whereas 2000cals of cod would be 2kg...
They would all be better or worse for you,
and better or worse in nutritional value,
and better or worse at filling you up and keeping you that way...
BUT they would still be 2000cals right?
Ok, I have satisfied myself that its all ok.
I am goign back to bed now.
