Count Nutrition, Not Calories

Count Nutrition, Not Calories


I cannot tell you enough, nutrition trumps calories ANY DAY of the week.

What do I mean by that?

If you had to choose between a cup of sugar free Jell-O or a cup of avocado (sprinkled with sea salt of course!) please pick the avocado EVERY SINGLE TIME!

‘But Heidi, the Jell-O is calorie free, sugar free and fat free! It fits perfect in my macros!’


Do you get it? Am I making myself clear? The Jell-O has fake sugar (don’t get me started on the awfulness of aspartame), artificial color, and offers no nutritional value to your body… NONE!

Let’s see what the avocado brings to the table, shall we? 234 calories, 21g fat. Most people would look at those numbers and run… but lets dig further.

The avocado has 1 ingredient.

It offers 10 g of fiber per cup, more potassium than a banana, and it's LOADED with monounsaturated fatty acids which help you absorb other nutrients from plant foods!

So not only are you benefiting from the avocado itself, it can dramatically increase the nutrient value of other plant foods that you are eating. #winning

As a society, we are inundated with advice on the “best diet” and “quick fixes” and because of that, we are so confused.

What if, anytime you are going to eat something, you ask yourself this question...

“Will this benefit my body, and is it helping me get closer to my goals?”

If 85% of the time you can answer “YES," you are going to be making huge strides.

Lets say in an average week you have 21 meals and 10 snacks (3 meals a day and 1-2 snacks). That means that 3 meals each week can be a little slack along with 1-2 snacks.

Please post in the comments what you current health/fitness goals are and what are some topics you want me to cover in the future!

Have a happy and healthy week!
