Let’s examine the options:
🔴 40g of Strawberries: nutrient-dense, loaded with fibre, 2 g of sugar, 12 calories
🔴 40g of Goji Berries: nutrient-dense, loaded with protein & fibre, 17.1 g of sugar, 129 calories
🔴 40g of red licorice nibs: devoid of nutrients and fibre, 17 g of sugar, 140 calories
My Answer: (let me know YOUR answer … post in the comments)
⚫ You don’t have to demonize candy, provided the overwhelming majority of your daily food intake is nutrient-dense.
⚫ Goji berries are nutrient-dense and high in fibre. This is a wiser option than candy because goji berries provide satiety, protein and micro-nutrition. Candy is nothing more than empty calories.
⚫ Fresh fruit (which has less calories and sugar) is my top choice because it satisfies hunger longer due to the higher water content.
⚫If you eat more calories than your body burns, then you will store fat, regardless of the food you eat.
