Identifying empty calories

Identifying empty calories

‘Empty’ literally means ‘containing nothing.’ These foods fill your body majorly with added sugars and solid fats (fats that remain solid even at room temperature; for instance, butter) and as a result, when consumed in excess, these empty calories contribute to unhealthy weight gain. This is especially true if you’re not burning enough calories through engaging in physical activities.

 

We tend to add up on a lot of empty calories from consumption of syrups which are added to processed foods. Such ingredients are added to foods to make them taste better, but they do not provide your body anything to thrive.

 

Moreover, eating too many calories lead to an increased craving for something sweet. In other words, foods high in calories have nothing to offer your body beyond calories that only create increased waistlines.
