One McDonalds Big Mac =

One McDonald’s Big Mac contains 540 calories, 29 grams of fat, and more than 40 grams of highly-processed, blood-sugar-spiking carbohydrates.

big mac

And that doesn’t even count the fries and soft drink that you KNOW you’re going to order with it.

At the same rate, here are a few alternative food choices and amounts that will land you at the same 540 calories:

140 medium strawberries
5 medium bananas
946ml of plain Greek yogurt
396gm of grilled chicken breast
17 cups of broccoli
6 and 1/2 cups of blueberries

Better yet, go ahead and eat ALL of this in one sitting:

113gm of grilled chicken (120 cals)
3 cups of broccoli (90 cals)
1 medium banana (100 cals)
226gm of plain Greek yogurt (130 cals)
10 medium strawberries (40 cals)
1/2 cup of blueberries (40 cals)

= 520 calories

So basically, you have an OVERFLOWING plate of chicken and veggies and then a HUGE dessert of yogurt and fruit. I mean, that’s a massive quantity of food right there. In fact, most people wouldn’t even be able to finish it.

And guess what? It still contains fewer calories than ONE Big Mac and it’s WAY healthier.

Simply put, you don’t have to starve yourself (at all) to lose weight and shed those stubborn kg..you just need to learn how to choose the right foods, and then eat your heart out.

CLEAN FOOD

meatballs for weekend food prep

meatball food prep

meatballs are so easy to make, either make your own mince or buy it already minced.

for all of the meatballs i made tonight, i use about 1300gm of meat, then just added herbs and spices.

For the beef ones I added carrot, onion and red capsicum. You don’t need breadcrumbs. Just mix everything together, roll into smallish balls, cook on a lined tray under the grill in the oven.

portion into 6 meatballs, into the freezer for lunches, lunch boxes, or for main meals.

my turkey meatball packs came in at 220 cal per pack

chicken meatball packs came in at 187 cal per pack

beef meatball packs came in at 177 cal per pack

cooked chicken breast packs came in at 110 cal per pack
