The Power Plate guideline

 

Following a whole food plant based dietary lifestyle is not about calorie counting or portion control.  

 

Calorie counting is not much fun, is tedious and not sustainable in the long run. Portion control doesn’t help either as it means you have to exert considerable will power and that often leads to hunger pangs and not feeling satisfied.

 

Following a whole food plant based dietary lifestyle means eating till you are comfortably full but not stuffing yourself either!  Apart from the high nutritional value, whole grains, legumes and starchy vegetables will give us the volume we need to feel full and satiated.

 

As a guideline, visually, this is what your plate should look like when you have your meals, the Power Plate!

Calorie Density - Jeff Novick R.D.

Calorie density?

 

It would be fair to say that most of us want to maintain a good healthy weight as excess weight can lead to health problems.

 

The best way to get a handle on this is to learn about calorie density. According to Jeff Novick, R.D.

 

“Calorie density is simply a measure of how many calories are in a given weight of food, most often expressed as calories per pound.

 

A food high in calorie density has a large number of calories in a small weight of food, whereas a food low in calorie density has much fewer calories in the same weight of food.”

 

We need to learn to choose foods that give us more value for our buck in terms of nutrients, low in calories and at the same time fill us up quite nicely.

 

Watch the talk by Jeff Novick to get a clearer idea of how calorie density works and why mettafood is the best diet on the planet, for the planet.

Living a life of kindness, with you, for you.
