Myth: All calories (Kilojoules) are equal
Truth: Many have the mentality that calories reign supreme and that the number of calories outweighs the importance of the source. Regarding energy, yes, all calories are equal, however, when it comes to your bodily functions, 200 calories from cake is not the same as 200 calories from spinach.
While focusing on weight loss, different foods create varying levels of satiety. When you compare the same amount of calories from a vegetable stir-fry in comparison to a bag of chips, there is no comparison regarding satiety value. You will feel much more satisfied and will be less likely to overeat on foods such as fruits, vegetables, and beans, in comparison to donuts and candy.
