Too Much of a Good Thing?

Posted on by Ami Spencer

If you’re craving an afternoon snack and you’re more likely to choose an apple and a handful of almonds over a candy bar, you’re making great progress on your journey toward a more healthy lifestyle. But just because you’re making more nutritious food choices doesn’t mean you’ll lose weight. Too much of a good thing is still too much.

Losing weight ultimately comes down to¬ a simple formula: calories eaten¬ are less than¬ calories burned. Whether you’re eating 2500 calories worth of junk food or 2500 calories worth of fruit, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins, you’re still eating 2500 calories.¬ Yes, the fruits, vegetables, grains and proteins are better for you than a Big Mac, but their calories¬ still add up. So continue to make good food choices and enjoy them, but make sure you watch your portions, too.
