Following on from my blogs on carbohydrates and proteins - onto the last macronutrient - FAT.
I will start off this blog how i started off the others - with the false claims/beliefs that people have with fat and end with some truths. With the supermarket shelves full of “low fat” “reduced fat” or even “fat free” its hard to avoid the stigma around “fat”. You will most often than not find that if an item is “fat free” etc its usually has added sugar to improve the taste that was lost when the fat was taken out. Yes it will be less calories - fat has 9 calories per a gram vs the 4 calories per a gram of carbs and protein. Fat is the most energy dense macronutrient

Following on from my last blog on carbohydrates now onto Protein. The biggest misconception with protein (and i hear it all the time from female clients and some male) “If i eat too much protein it will make me get big muscles” This couldn't be further from the truth and many wish it was simple as that. But unfortunately you have to also train really hard and lift heavy to get “big muscles”. Drinking a protein shake is not going to turn you into the incredible Hulk a lot of hard work in the gym is required!
