More flavor without extra calories

  1. If you are on a diet, the general opinion is that there is little variation in what you eat. It is often limited to a few dishes, which are no longer enjoyed after a few weeks. Simply because the â € ˜normalâ € ™ seasonings are too fat, contain too many sugars or too many calories.

  1. This would make all the effects of the weight loss diet disappear like snow in the sun. I regularly get questions about how you can vary this, how you can still give more flavor to your food, without the number of calories increasing excessively.

What exactly is a â € calorieâ € ™?

  1. This is a very common term, but most people have no idea what it actually means. Although you often hear that you shouldn't eat too many calories, this is an incorrect use of the term. You can't eat calories. It is not a nutrient, but a unit to express a certain amount of energy.

  1. Despite the fact that the term â € ˜Calorieâ € ™ has become very outdated, and has been replaced by Sl units, the food and related industries still use the term â € ˜ calorie use. Not so bad in itself, as long as we're all talking about the same thing.

  1. When we talk about energy requirements, adult men have an average of 2600 kcal per day. required . Women can do with a little less: 2100 kcal. per day . Please note that these are averages. The amount of energy you need to function optimally varies from person to person.

  1. If you eat more calories than your body needs at that moment, there is a surplus of energy. The body is very energy efficient, and will transform and store excess energy as body fat, usually in the abdominal area. This fat can later, when necessary, be re-transformed into energy when there is a shortage.

  1. To make this principle a bit more concrete: If you ingest 7000 kcal too much, you will gain about 1 kilo in weight. So eating 3600 kcal for 7 days instead of the 2600 kcal that you need on average will ensure that you gain 1 kilo in one week. If you calculate this, you can see that this can go very quickly.

  1. The opposite also works: If you were to eat 1600 kcal for 7 days, instead of 2600 kcal, you would lose 1 kg in one week. The body does not get enough calories, and so starts using the reserves. Now this example is extreme, because eating so many fewer calories is not wise. You should limit this to a maximum of 500 calories less per day. Losing weight then goes slowly, but certainly!
