We often hear people say that potatoes⠀ are unhealthy when it comes to carbs. But what's the deal? Is rice a "healthier" alternative?⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Brown rice is a wholegrain, which is good for our health. It contains complex carbs, fiber, plant protein, minerals (potassium) and vitamins (B). But it also contains phytic acid, which prevents the absorption of minerals such as iron. Besides that, brown rice contains arsenic, which occurs when plants absorb pollution from water & soil. This is harmful for us when we get way too much from it because high doses are acutely toxic.⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Potatoes contain complex carbs, fiber, vitamins (C,B6) and minerals (potassium, magnesium, iron). As you can see potatoes are lower in carbs & calories than rice. In this picture 100 g of (raw) potatoes is compared to 100 g of uncooked brown rice. This doesn't mean potatoes are healthier than rice though! If you normally take 50 g of rice (measured uncooked) for dinner & you want to have potatoes instead, you can have about 300 g of potatoes and still get about the same amount of carbs & calories.⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Take home message is that they both contain useful nutrients. Potatoes are a great variation to rice, what one lacks the other one makes up for. So you'll be better off incorporating both into your diet rather than either one alone. There's nothing as boring as eating the same thing every single day. Balance,moderation and variety is key. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #fitness #fitnesslife # #fitspiration #fitnesstransformation #bodybuilding #instagrambodybuilding #fitjourney #fitnessquotes #gymtime #fitnesslife #bodybuildinglifestyle #igfitness # #excercise #fitnessfreak #fitlifestyle # #fitnesslove #gymaddict #backworkout #healthyeating #cleanfood #legs #squats #weekend #connormcgregor #fitfam #mondaymotivation #instafit #weekend #throwbackthursday #tbt

🔶 BACK to the BASICS ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Whether you’re coming back from a layoff or injury, are a beginner in the gym or one of those bodybuilders who’s neglected his lower half, the fastest way to add some size to your thighs is to stick with the basics. The concept of overload that governs resistance training is critical now more than ever, because nothing’s going to grow if you don’t challenge it. And that was never more true than on leg day. Your discipline will determine your destiny ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ➡️➡️ Swipe to see my leg workout I would do when I train legs once per week . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #fitness #fitnesslife # #fitspiration #fitnesstransformation #bodybuilding #instagrambodybuilding #fitjourney #fitnessquotes #gymtime #fitneslife #bodybuildinglifestyle #igfitness # #excercise #fitnessfreak #fitlifestyle # #fitnesslove #gymaddict #backworkout #healthyeating #cleanfood #legs #squats #weekend #connormcgregor #mondaymotivation #bootybootybooty #therock #beard #humpday at St. Louis

While we all love to workout and keep our body in check, we neglect to keep track of a few things such as body weight, body fat, water weight, bone density, and muscle mass. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Invest few bucks on a decent scale and keep track of your body weight fluctuations. The way I do it is, I weight myself Monday morning every week on empty stomach and use that as my baseline. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My recommendation is this Form Fit Digital Body Analyzer by Vitagoods. I have been using this scale for a while now I absolutely love it. I have tried so many scales but this one is way better because it also tells me how much water I'm holding and how much lean body mass I'm carrying in addition to just my total weight. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Vitagoods is having a huge sale from now until 12/25, so be sure to check it out. This is a great deal and will not last long. ⠀ ⠀ Head to vitagoods.com/fitguru and use my code ‘ 𝐅𝐢𝐭𝐠𝐮𝐫𝐮 ’ for 𝟕𝟎% 𝐨𝐟𝐟.

Toned vs. Ripped ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Toned and ripped are the terms that are thrown around at the gym all the time . Toned means having a firm body, flat stomach with a healthy amount of body fat. Ripped is something different. This means that your body fat is extremely low. You can see specific muscle definition, and may even see striations in the muscles and veins. ⠀ ⠀ Toned as compared to ripped refers to the amount of body fat and muscular definition a person possesses -so someone who is toned may not be that different from someone who is ripped. keep in mind, it's critical to understand that getting too ripped or toned may compromise your health in the long run⠀ ⠀ #fitness #fitnesslife # #fitspiration #fitnesstransformation #bodybuilding #instagrambodybuilding #fitjourney #fitnessquotes #gymtime #fitnesslife #bodybuildinglifestyle #igfitness # #excercise #fitnessfreak #fitlifestyle # #fitnesslove #gymaddict #backworkout #healthyeating #cleanfood #legs #squats #weekend #connormcgregor # #fitfam #mondaymotivation #instafit #ripped #toned

Lifting heavy with moderate rest times is⠀ the best way to stay lean while adding size. Of⠀ course diet plays a HUGE, role too!⠀ ⠀ On the other hand, I try to add as much as size possible throughout the bulking season (winter) . of course, with clean foods. This way, I could enjoy the holidays and when it's time to cut up, I'm primed and ready to go through those grueling cutting days where my carbs are low to zero on certain days.⠀ ⠀ At the end of day, it's your choice . Pick one that makes it life more enjoyable. After all, what's the point of all this working out and dieting if you are not enjoying the journey? ✌🏻⠀ ⠀ #fitness #fitnesslife # #fitspiration #fitnesstransformation #bodybuilding #instagrambodybuilding #fitjourney #fitnessquotes #gymtime #fitneslife #bodybuildinglifestyle #igfitness # #excercise #fitnessfreak #fitlifestyle # #fitnesslove #gymaddict #backworkout #healthyeating #cleanfood #legs #squats #weekend #connormcgregor #therock #humpday #abs #sixpack #sixpackabs #flexfriday at Yellowstone National Park
