Developing a comprehensive perspective is the most important factor when it comes to actually understanding what the f*ck you’re doing with anything, not just your health and nutrition.
“Yo, what foods should I eat to lose weight?” for instance, would be asked by someone who lacks such perspective.
An individual closer to the other end of the spectrum would understand that specific food choices don’t determine weight gain or weight loss. This person would have it down pat that energy (calorie) intake is the main nutritional determinant of our body composition, with macronutrient breakdown being second. He/she would understand that adequate micronutrients and sleep are important factors for achieving a desired body composition as well.
Therefore, a possible question that 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴 individual may bring up would be “which foods are lower in calories, providing more overall volume to make it easier to reach my goal intake each day?”
Undoubtedly, this question shows that this person is focused on improving dietary choices to make reaching his/her goal intake easier – by putting themselves in position to lose weight while eating the same amount of physical food they were consuming while trying to add on weight in the form of muscle.
Develop a full perspective and you’ll have a far better idea on what you actually need to focus on to create long-term results and sustainability. - 6 minutes ago
