Su objetivo principal es hacer entender a las personas que, siempre y cuando consuman las porciones adecuadas y mantengan un estilo de vida saludable, pueden lograr y mantener el cuerpo que desean.

Para ello, Mountain comparte collages de fotografías de alimentos con los que explica que, por ejemplo, una porción de almendras puede tener la misma cantidad de calorías que una porción de gomitas.

Con este tipo de comparaciones, Mountain no intenta decir que hay que comer lo que sea sin fijarse bien en los ingredientes, grasas saturadas o niveles de azúcar, sino que es importante no satanizar algunos alimentos ni alejarlos de la dieta.

Además, explica que en ocasiones, los productos que parecen más saludables, que se hacen llamar ‘light’ o que son libres de gluten pueden resultar más calóricos que otros.

“100 gramos de chocolate de leche vs 100 gramos de chocolate oscuro (85% cacao)”.

100g Milk Chocolate vs 100g 85% Dark Chocolate 🍫 ⠀ ⠀ So it’s pretty unknown that dark chocolate actually has more calories than milk chocolate (and white chocolate for that matter.)⠀ ⠀ Dark is often given the label as the ‘healthy’ version of chocolate. And although calories aren’t the sole indicator of ‘healthy’, we just presume it has lower calories. So which one is best for weight-loss?⠀ ⠀ In most cases, Dark chocolate has less sugar, more fiber and more iron than milk. It’s basically more nutritious than milk chocolate.⠀ ⠀ Regardless, I will always go for milk for two reasons:⠀ ⠀ 1. I think Dark chocolate tastes like garden leaves.⠀ ⠀ 2. Chocolate isn’t something I’ll seek out when I’m looking to pack in those vitamins and minerals – especially in a diet that already consists of adequate fruit, vegetables and micronutrient-dense food 🥗 I enjoy chocolate for it’s taste, not it’s nutritional value. My diet is inclusive of it always – no matter what my goal is at the time 💪⠀ ⠀ For those of who genuinely love dark chocolate, keep doing you 💕. However if you PREFER the taste of milk, but force yourself to eat dark because you’ve read it’s ‘healthier’, just have the milk chocolate and enjoy it 💪 In terms of weight-loss from a calorie perspective, it’s actually more beneficial and will raise happiness levels by 938% (unproven stat.)⠀ ⠀ Don’t eat things you don’t enjoy for the sake of it. Personal enjoyment is ‘healthy’ in my eyes 💁🏼 Which side are you guys?!⠀ ⠀ #theFFF #theFFFeed @thefffeed

100 calories of Strawberries vs 100 calories of Strawberries 🍓⠀ ⠀ The portion on the left weighs 300g and the portion on the right weighs 35g, however both amount to 100 calories.⠀ ⠀ I don’t about you guys but I love eating… like just eating. Anything. In general 🌝 So whenever I’m trying to get a little bit leaner, I love low calorie/high volume snacks. They make me feel like I’m eating more – like picking a bowl of fresh strawberries as opposed to a snack bag of dried strawberries 💪⠀ ⠀ People often presume dried fruit has the same macro/micro nutrient value as fresh fruit and don’t really take the huge difference in volume into account. Being aware of these factors could really help improve your portion control when eating either of these type of foods – and get you to your goal quicker 💕⠀ ⠀ Don’t get me wrong; dried fruit is waaaay easier to eat when you’re on the go (ain’t nobody got time to whip out a punnet of strawberries lol). So they could be a good option if convenience is the priority. But when fatloss is the goal, 300g of fresh strawberries is likely to be more satiating.⠀ ⠀ Anyway I personally like my strawberries dowsed in gelatin with the label ‘Haribo’ on it.⠀ ⠀ #theFFF #theFFFeed @thefffeed

Para entender mejor su idea, Mountain también compara las calorías de platos que se ven iguales, pero que en realidad son diferentes por la composición de sus ingredientes. Por ejemplo, estas ensaladas se ven prácticamente idénticas, sin embargo, una de ellas no tiene crutones, sino semillas de girasol, tiene queso bajo en grasa y un aderezo más ligero.

Avocado Salad vs Avocado Salad 🥑⠀ ⠀ Both are the same size, both come with avocado, cheese, croutons and dressing. However the bowl on the right is almost 300 calories more than the bowl on the left.⠀ ⠀ It’s easy to look at a salad and just think ‘it’s just a salad’ -⠀ but small variations in the toppings and dressings can dramatically change the nutritional value.⠀ ⠀ Just look at your standard supermarket salad bar like Morrisons – I’d say only 50% of the offering is made up of greens and veggies. The rest is different types of pasta, potato salad, oily dressings and crunchy bacon bits.⠀ ⠀ This, OF COURSE, is absolutely fine. Some days I’ll dowse mine in those bacon bits to the point it’s actually bacon bits with lettuce on top. But atleast I know where I’m at 💪⠀ ⠀ Anyway my point is, salads are a fantastic way to pack in lots of lavly micros but not all salads are the same. Being aware of the individual components of the meal you’re eating AND how it sits in context to the rest of your day will massively help if weight-loss/weight-gain is your goal 💕⠀ ⠀ Here’s my tweakz:⠀ ⠀ Left Bowl:⠀ – Mixed salad leaves (100g)⠀ – Avocado (Half)⠀ – Leerdamer Light (20g)⠀ – Sliced Toast (Half piece)⠀ – Homemade Dressing (yoghurt + mustard)⠀ – Toasted Oats (5g)⠀ ⠀ Right Bowl:⠀ – Mixed salad leaves (100g)⠀ – Avocado (Half)⠀ – Parmesan (20g)⠀ – Croutons (25g)⠀ – Caesar Dressing (2 tbsp)⠀ – Sunflower Seeds (15g)⠀ ⠀ ⠀ (Lil tip: Most of the Pret salads are higher in calories than the sandwiches. F. Y. I.) 🌝🌝🌝 ⠀ ⠀ #theFFF #theFFFeed @thefffeed

En el siguiente plato, las calorías disminuyen, por ejemplo, por la calidad de la carne y el tipo de arroz:

Same amount of food, different calories 🍽⠀ ⠀ You might recognise this guy from my post on Saturday. He featured on my full day breakdown of food 💪 Thought he deserved some of the spotlight by himself ⭐️⠀ ⠀ The only differences are the percentage of fat in the meat and the oil used to cook it. Firstly FAT IZ GOOD 4 U. It’s simply more calories per gram than carbs or protein. That’s it.⠀ ⠀ Secondly CALORIES R GOOD 4 U. You need them to fuel your body. However making a simple swap like this could be useful if your goal is weight management and you’re getting adequate fat in the REST of your meals through-out the day 🙌⠀ ⠀ I appreciate some of you aren’t about the Frylight sprays in replacement of oil. Das cool. I personally am okay using it, but use normal Oil if not! 💕⠀ ⠀ Left Side:⠀ – 125g Golden Veg Rice⠀ – 80g Mushrooms⠀ – 60g Peas⠀ – 100g Chopped Tomatoes⠀ + 125g 5% Fat Beef⠀ + Frylight Olive spray⠀ ⠀ Right Side:⠀ – 125g Golden Veg Rice⠀ – 80g Mushrooms⠀ – 60g Peas⠀ – 100g Chopped Tomatoes⠀ + 125g 12% Fat Beef⠀ + 1 tbsp Olive Oil⠀ ⠀ #theFFF @thefffeed #theFFFeed

“Tostada con mantequilla de maní vs tostada con mantequilla de maní”, un claro ejemplo de que solo con moderar el tamaño de las porciones es posible mantenerse en forma comiendo todo tipo de platillos.

Peanut butter on Toast vs Peanut Butter on Toast 🍞⠀ ⠀ Both are made from one slice of the same bread, both have a spread of the same peanut butter on top. However one side is roughly 150 calories more than to the other.⠀ ⠀ I bladdy love a bit of PB but it can be super easy to accidentally-on-purpose spread half a jar on a piece of toast lol (I’ve been there 🌝) Because nut butters are high fat, they tend to be high in calories. WHICH IS ABSOLUTELY FINE GUYS. It’s just something to bare in mind if weight-loss (or weight-gain) is your goal. Weighing out yo PB is a good method of managing this.⠀ ⠀ Left Slice:⠀ – 1 slice of Hovis Wholemeal Bread (88 kcal)⠀ – 15g Peanut Butter (94 kcal)⠀ ⠀ Right Slice:⠀ – 1 slice of Hovis Wholemeal Bread (88 kcal)⠀ – 40g Peanut Butter (250 kcal)⠀ ⠀ As you know from my recent posts, I’m about enjoying ALL ze food and there is nothing I cut out of my diet that I like the taste of – no matter my goal. Learning how to manage portion sizes has allowed me to achieve this! I hope this helps my fellow PB addicts out there. I got chu. 😏😏😏⠀ ⠀ #theFFF #theFFFeed @thefffeed
