Avoid It! Expend More Than You Eat
You can debate whether all calories are equal until you’re blue in the face, but effective fat loss really comes down to calories in versus calories out. If you’re looking to lose weight, your calorie consumption has to be less than your caloric expenditure. Basically, you have to burn more than you eat.
Organic produce is better for you and your body, but it’s all the same in macros. It’s important to be aware of what you’re consuming. Take fruit, for example. While fruit is great for you, and contains high levels of natural vitamins and minerals, its sugar content can be relatively high. One cup of grapes, for example, has 23 grams of sugar per serving.
I’m not trying to deter you from eating fruit, but here’s some food for thought: If one piece of fruit has that much sugar, a mixed fruit smoothie from your local health store is likely loaded with the sweet stuff. This can quickly add up to a calorie bomb. Eat well, but eat (and drink) portions that meet your goals.
