Why is counting calories a waste of time?
We don’t believe in counting calories in general because 100 kcal of vegetable is not equal to a 100 kcal of sugar.
We don’t believe in counting calories in general because 100 kcal of vegetable is not equal to a 100 kcal of sugar. Sugar will spike blood sugar and cause an insulin release which puts your body into fat storage mode; veggies on the other hand help put your body into fat burning mode.
Different food groups contain varying amounts of kcal:
1 gram fat: = 9 kcal
1 gram protein: = 4 kcal
1 gram carbohydrates: = 4 kcal
1 gram alcohol: = 7 kcal
Vegetables can have 15 times less calories per gram than these figures. .
Likewise, when burning calories, according to current science, it’s easy to burn 100 kcal on a treadmill but burning 16 kcal on an assault bike would leave you totally breathless and would be the hardest two minutes of your life. The current belief is that to burn off 1 Kg of fat, it’s estimated that you need to burn off an additional 7726 calories (kilo calories) (453g/1 pound of fat = 3500 kcal)
Health and weight loss is about giving your body maximum quality calories. This means eating loads of vegetables, fruit, and the ingredients found in nature’s pantry.
It’s not about how hard you exercise: it’s 90% diet and 10% exercise. Six packs are really made in the kitchen. Losing fat is all about eliminating refined carbs and controlling carbs in general. When you eat good food you feel fuller for longer , so you eat less and get more nutrients, which results in great portion control.
Calories may be useful as a rough guideline for portion size, but if you are eating a lot of veggies and unrefined food you will find it hard to eat over 1200 kcal.

Kidney failure occurs when your kidneys lose the ability to filter waste from your blood sufficiently. In most cases, kidney failure is caused by other acute or chronic health problems, such as diabetes or high blood pressure that has done permanent damage (harm) to your kidneys little by little, over time.
Yeah! 21 Days – done and dusted. You did it. Whether you succeeded in making your 21 Day Challenge 100% #EatClean, or you cracked and had that sugary chocolate (or two), you’ve made it through to start a new habit: healthy eating.
Don’t outsource responsibility for your health. Take charge of your life. Trust your gut (pun intended). There is a lot of wisdom and a lot of rubbish out there. Do your own research, learn from many different sources of information – look for research that provides both sides of the story and use what works for your body. Discard the rest.
Exercise alone won’t help you lose weight. Ever noticed how many people may be fit but they are still fat? There are loads of fit but fat people – take a look at the thousands of entrants at big cycling races or at Comrades and IRONMAN events.
Your emotions influence what you crave, and what you eat affects your emotions. Like affairs wreck relationships, sugar is the wrecker of emotional stability. It destroys both your physical wellbeing and your state of mind.
It’s simple… our water is polluted to the maximum. Imagine taking your family to the local lake, and each of you pours into the water a box of washing powder, a litre of oil, your roll-on deodorant, a can of doom, your tube of toothpaste, a pile of medicine, dishwashing liquid, anti-bacterial toilet cleaner and dirty soap suds.
Alcohol must be worth it if we’re willing to force our bodies to cope with hangovers and sacrifice feeling good the day after a big one, right? Of course there’s a good side to enjoying a few drinks with your mates, but like everything in life moderation is essential.
