I love food and I love to eat... But I also like to look certain way.
So most of the times I chose options that go in line with my goals.
I accepted that not every meal will be a gourmet and mouth watering feast.
I chose lighter alternatives 80- 90% of the times. And I'm ok with it, because then, when there's something I really like and enjoy, I just have it. GUILT FREE. Which was the case today- two big slices of a poppy seed cake. And I would have more, but there wer
Nuts can be a great and convenient snack on the go. They're good source of fat, fiber and... calories. 10 almonds- 70 calories, 10 cashews- 90 calories, 10 macadamias- 170 calories, 10 pecans (halves)- 95 calories. And how easy and quick it is to eat 10 of each?
As you can see, EXCESSIVE snacking on nuts can easily make you exceed your calorie needs for the day.
Just keep that in mind when reaching for another handful... #DietNutrition
1. Restrictions and strict rules don't work for me.
I wanted to build a healthier relationship with the food (I've struggled with it for a long time), and decided to give up all the "mustn't", "shouldn't", and "can't" when it comes to eating.

I walk a lot, workout 4-5 times a week, and overall I move a lot during the day.
3. They make me sleep better.
Once I started eating carbs in the evening (oh no!!!), I stopped waking up duri
I eat both. I like yolks for all the nutrition and the taste. But sometimes, I don't need more fat, and want only the protein, so I have whites only.
In other words- it depends on my "diet" for the day.
For breakfast I drink my coffee with half and half, and I have it with a chocolate protein pancake, which I cook in coconut oil. There's a fat in the creamer, in the oil, and in the baking cocoa. So for my pancake I use egg whites, because I don't need more
I used to be anti-carbs.... in theory... because in practice, I wasn't able to keep my carbohydrate intake low for longer than a couple of days, due to binging caused by ridiculous restrictions. I would not eat a banana because it had too many carbohydrates, just to end up pigging out on cake and ice cream over the weekend. True story.
If you prefer diet that's low in carbohydrates, and you're thriving while on it, it's all good, don't change it.
But if restricting carbo
