People have a crazy outlook on nutrition.
My last meal every evening goes like this; 80g oats, 25g whey protein, 100g yogurt, 50g peanut butter.
Every now and then I like to swap the peanut butter round for some peanut butter cups.
They are less calories, although someone tried to argue with me that these would make me “fat” if I done this regularly 🤦🏼♂️
Yes I know that this is the “non-diet” product.
Although calories are calories. 250kcal vs 298kcal, answer me the SIMPLE question, which is less? So, if I’m eating less, how on earth could I gain fat? Even, when I’m in a deficit when the higher calorie product (peanut butter) is present in my diet.
“Aw but it’s full of sugar and regardless of being in a calorie deficit if you eat sugar you gain weight”
Yes, sugar makes you gain weight. IF YOU ARE NOT IN A CALORIE DEFICIT.
“When I eat stuff like that I put on like 3lbs”
Yes, because you eat 50, not 3 & create a surplus.
Don’t be clouded by idiocy. If the calories are less than what you are eating in your current deficit then all you are doing is creating more of a deficit.
You will not get fat & yes I will continue to eat peanut butter cups.
