Some Useful Knowledge…

Hopefully by now you know that a calorie is not a calorie.  Eating 600 calories from waffles is going to have a very different effect on the body compared to eating 600 calories from a steak and asparagus.  Not all calories are the same.  The same hold trues for our macronutrients: fats, carbohydrates, and protein.  Fats are not all the same.  Fructose is different from glucose when discussing carbohydrates, and protein from legumes are nothing like protein found in animal products.

Ever wonder what the difference is between saturated and unsaturated fats?  Not sure why soybean oil is bad for you?  Which carbs should I eat and why?  Chris Kresser’s article explains all of this.  It’s well worth it.
