So you have certain fitness goals and you are determined to achieve them.

You started avoiding all the junk your friends throw upon you, you do not eat pizzas every weekend, you have stopped being a party animal and you are eating all home cooked nutritious food and exercising regularly. You are following so called healhy lifestye and still not getting results ? So what do you think is going wrong ? So here is the answer to your question: > Is eating healthy and eating right the same thing ? > Eating healthy: Eating nutritent rich foods and avoiding junk. > Eating right: Eating nutrient rich food in right quantity as per our goals. Let's say a person has a goal of reducing fat and his daily calorie requirement is 2500 calories to maintain his current weight, and he eats milk, rice, roti, chicken, eggs, ghee, fruits, vegetables etc. which are considered healthy food items. but his total calorie consumption is more than 2500 calories. > Will he be loosing fat despite of eating all these nutrient rich food - No. > Why - Because he is eating healthy but not eating right that means his diet is not quantified as per his goals. > We quantify everything in our life, don't we ? If we go on a trip we calculate the distance and accordingly we fill the petrol in our car. If we hae an exam in 3 months we quantify how much we need to study daily to complete the syllabus within the time limit. If we have a party at home we quantify how many people will come and how much food we need for them. Then why shouldn't we quantify our food according to our body goals ? > What is "eating right" or "quantifed nutrition" ? Quantified Nutrition is eating the right amount of food as per our fitness goals. > How it helps ? 1. When you follow a quantified diet you know what you are eating and what possible changes you can expect in future. > Suppose you calculated your TDEE 2000 calories and and your goal is maintaining your current weight so you will be eating arount 2000 to maintain your current weight. 2. You can track your progress and modify your diet plan accordingly. > Now you started with 2000 calories but after a week you tracked your progress you found out that you lost some weight, so now you know your TDEE calculation was wrong and you need to eat more to maintain your weight. 3. You will be able to distribute your macros i.e., protein carbs and fats as per your goal. > Protein, carbohydrates and fats must be distributed as per our body composition and goals. Elderly have more protein requirement, a marathon runner needs more carbodrates in his/her diet. Do comment if you have any doubts. #EatRight #EatHealthy
