I get a lot emails about nutrition. People ask question like:
What should I eat?
Is this healthy?
Is chocolate making me fat?
Can I eat burgers?
What diet should I follow to lose weight?
and many others, but I think you get the point.
They all have one thing in common. The people who asked these questions had a disbelief that certain food can make you fat.
What about you?
Do you think that calories don’t matter? That it is the fat and sugar in the food that makes you fat?
If calories didn’t matter, you could eat insane amount of “healthy/fat burning” food and you wouldn’t gain any fat.
However, even the so called “healthy” food contains calories. So, what happen with them, they just disappear? That sounds little bit unrealistic, doesn’t it?
It doesn’t matter if you overeat by protein, carbs or fat, because eventually every calorie that isn’t burned is stored. Simple as that.
I know it seems logical when some fitness expert tells you that you shouldn’t eat chocolate, because of all the fat and sugar it contains.
Which many people translate into eating fat=gaining fat. However, once you think about it a little bit, you realize that it doesn’t make any sense, does it?
If you still think that eating chocolate will make you fat, then let me ask you a question:
What would happen if your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) + some daily activity was estimated about 2000 kcal (this number will differ based on your data) and you took small piece of chocolate throughout the day (about 250 kcal) and nothing else, will you gain fat? According to the statement that says: “chocolate will make you fat” you should, right? But I think that it is clear that this is not going to happen. From fat loss point of view it really doesn’t matter what you eat.
Your body will burn these calories and for the rest of the calories it will use fat that is already stored in your body.
So, what does it mean? It means that you will lose fat! By eating chocolate!
This is something that is already known in scientific circles, but not yet by public.
That is the reason why Profesor Mark Haub has decided to start a little experiment to show people the truth about fat gain and fat loss.
He just simply eats chocolate and muffins all day long and losing fat.
Here is the experiment:
Mark Haub’s Snack Food Diet
Here at AOL News you can read some information about what he is trying to accomplish by this experiment.
You can track his progress at twitter here:
Stop avoiding food and start enjoying it. You can eat whatever you want, only thing you need to do is to lower your calorie intake.
