500 Calories vs 500 Calories

calories-of-food

That sugar roller coaster that I posted yesterday can be explained partly by the above image. If you ate 1, 1.5 oz chocolate bar, you receive little to no nutritional value in that 250 calorie “snack” and so experience that downward spiral. However, if you opt for eating a spinach salad topped with shredded carrots, you can eat more, gain numerous essential vitamins and minerals, and keep your energy level stable. So, for your next snack or meal, opt for the nutrient-rich foods and pop off a rectangle of dark chocolate to end on a sweet note!
