Australian nutritionist Savina Rego has taught her readers to cut calories by one third without cutting the serving size. This is reported by the Daily Mail.
She used fried chicken with rice and vegetables as an example. Rego showed off two variations of the dish on her Instagram page. On the left photo it has 750 calories, and on the right – only 460, that is, 290 calories less.
To achieve this, the nutritionist took less chicken and rice and added more vegetables. In the lower-calorie version, there is less rice per glass and one hundred grams less chicken, but half a glass more vegetables.
Rego said she is often asked for advice on healthy food recipes. “The truth is, you don’t need healthy recipes,” she says. “You can eat whatever you like.” According to the expert, the main thing is not the food itself, but the correct serving size.
Earlier it was reported that American nutritionists Vanessa Risseto and Tamar Samuels debunked popular misconceptions about healthy eating. In their opinion, it makes no sense to replace sugar with honey and give preference to food without fat. Drinking eight glasses of water a day and the heart health benefits of red wine have also proven to be myths.
