All Calories Are Not Created Equal

There is no one “perfect” way to lose weight, as the vast array of different diet books will show. A new study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition emphasized that it is not just about the total amount of calories consumed. Instead, the types of foods you eat contributed to weight loss and weight gain, especially as we age. In fact, foods with a higher glycemic load contributed to more weight gain. Additionally, the quality of the protein consumed was also important. It is best to to eat a balanced, varied diet and to remember that avoiding a few “bad foods” will not prevent weight gain and no one specific food will melt the pounds away. Focus on choosing vegetables, fruits, fish, chicken, nuts and good fats, such as olive oil.
