🕊Life coaching pt.4🕊 ”Calories” ( part 1, Continue next post➡️!!
Way to many people doesn’t understand how big impact calories have on your training results. Whatever your goal is, having way to little/ to much calories will ruin your result.
▶️photo 1.I like to see my everyday calorie intake as
Jug and a couple of glasses! The jug represent my target calorie intake of the day and the number of glasses represent my meals for the day. I always want to fill the jug ( target calorie intake ) to the limit as perfect as possible, not more or less, so it wont really matter how many glasses ( meals) I choose to have during the day as long a I fill the jug precisely. ▶️photo 1 and 2. Except from filling the jug precisely, you also want to fill it with as much healthy nutritions as possible. See every glass as your oppurtunity to fill your body needs with as much different nutrients as possible ( proteins, healthy fats, carbs, Aminos, vitamins, Creatin etc.)
The perfect jug would contain all of these nutrients everyday. BUT remember, you only have a certain amount of space ( calories) to use before the jug is full. So its important to carefully choose what to fill your glasses ( meals) with. ▶️ photo 2. Filling the jug ( reach maximum calorie intake) as well as not filling it up ( Eating to little calories) can be done with all kinds of nutrients above. Though, depending om what you put in your glass, you can fit more or less in it. ———————

Foods like fast food are empty calories of as I like to call it ”Calorie bombs”. They fill up your whole calorie intake without giving you any healthy nutrients.
