Popularni nutricionist otkrio istinu o “zdravijim” čokoladama

Piše , Objavljeno

Graeme Tomlinson, još znan na Instagramu kao The Fitness Chef, se posvetio uništavanju mitova vezanih za zdravu prehranu.

Njegov stav je da ne treba biti opsjednut sa zdravom i (pre)čistom prehranom već da treba uživati u načinu prehrane koji je održiv – i to jako dugo vremena. Ako nešto ne voliš jesti, nećeš u tom uspjeti. Njegov stav o restriktivnim dijetama nećemo spominjati jer nam se ne da potražiti fotografija kontejnera da ju ubacimo u članak.

U nedavnom Instagram postu se dotaknuo i “zdravijih” čokolada – ili preciznije – Cadburyjeve Dairy Milk čokolade s 30 posto manje šećera.

Ako pogledate post – gotovo sve će vam biti jasno.

The intentions of Cadbury’s ‘response to the obesity crisis’ are commendable to an extent. But in this case, it’s not the thought that counts. ⁣ ⁣ The 30% less sugar bar does contain 15 fewer calories per 50g. It is also presented in 35g and 85g bars which simply result in consumption of less food than the original 45g, 100g and 200g bars. It contains nine times the amount of fibre, meaning it is more likely to satiate an individual than the original bar. ⁣ ⁣ But it’s branding directly points the finger at sugar being a cause of obesity. And that having 30% less of it is ‘working to tackle the obesity problem’. Except sugar is not a cause of obesity. A calorie surplus over time is.⁣ ⁣ Are we legitimately trying to source our fibre intake from chocolate? Is this going to provide a meaningful difference to an individual who consumes too many calories? Surely it is a better idea to address fibre intake across overall dietary intake – and recognize energy balance.⁣ ⁣ Perhaps a more impactful idea would have been to make a version significantly lower in caloric worth. With a significant increase in protein. Even a simple reduction in volume of the original such as a 25-30g serving. These changes would directly nurture calorie reduction without pinning hopes on secondary variables such as satiety or belief that sugar is the problem.⁣ ⁣ Cadbury’s (and other confectionary companies) are not to blame for the obesity crisis. Unfortunately their attempts at showing they do care don’t actively help the problem. Because a marketing slogan of ‘30% less sugar’ becomes meaningless unless it coincides with a significant reduction in caloric worth. And it does not. ⁣ ⁣ To conclude: the reduced sugar bar could result in improved behavioral traits, leading to overall calorie reduction. But then again, it may not. The salient point here is that sugar is once again the scapegoat, whilst the fundamental necessity of energy balance is ignored. ⁣ ⁣ No individual food is to blame for obesity. It’s high time we all accept that. 🍫⁣ -⁣ -⁣ #chocolate #dairymilk #snack #lowsugar #snacktime #fatlosscoach #eatsmart #flexiblediet #sugar #caloriedeficit #obesity #weightlosstips #treat #dairymilk

30 posto manje šećera znači jako malu kalorijsku razliku. “Zdravija čokolada” na 50 grama ima 252 kalorije dok ona obična ima 267 kalorija. Da, može se reći da konzumacija tih 15 kalorija kroz godinu dana može značiti razliku, ali hej… Ni ne trebaš jesti tu čokoladu svaki dan. Ili možeš, ali pobrini se onda da ti ostatak prehrane dopušta taj kalorijski unos.

Je li šećer kriv za epidemiju pretilosti koja se događa svuda u svijetu? Uopće ne. Ako bacite oko na caption, vidjet ćete da je razlog višak kalorija u prehrani nagomilan kroz vrijeme. Tako da – jedi pravu stvar. I ako već jedeš šećer, neka bude desert u pitanju, nakon što pojedeš neke nutritivno kvalitetne obroke. Pojest ćeš manje slatkog.

Zdrave čokolade su glupost. Jedi ono što ti je fino.
