Some say a calorie is a calorie. I can’t say that really makes sense to me from at least some perspectives. Maybe if it’s about weight loss? But I still figure your body handles all sorts of different calories in very different ways. And some calories come with a wealth of other “good stuff “.
So with that in mind, here is the first swap I making as I head towards my first meet. Two or three times a week I used to have seven of these (very delicious, crunchy) chocolate eggs before the gym to give myself a bit of energy. It was one of the things where I was still probably more interested in the experience than the fuel, if I’m honest.
Anyway, that’s the (caloric) equivalent of 3 of these figs, which I’ll now have instead.
Although perhaps I should ask Garth to bring the rest of the eggs into work, just keep them out of my reach. 🙂
