More and more i have noticed that ‘fitblrs’ and ‘health’ accounts are posting pictures of food with nutella…. and then there comes loads of questions of, Why are fitblrs eating nutella? is it healthy? And people think its like Peanut Butter (that yes its high in fat, but its actually healthy in small amounts!)
Now if we look at the ingredients you can see that the first ingredient is sugar, followed by palm oil… so not the healthiest?
But i am all into moderation and balance, and dont see the point in depriving yourself. Because lets be honest, eating 1 or 2 tablespoons/tea spoons of nutella now and again isnt going to make you fat or ruin any progress.
Of course eating a tablespoon nutella everyday wouldnt be reccommended as it has c.a 11g sugar in it (in just a small serving). But being afraid of eating a little bit of it now and again isnt healthy at all… granted, just because you can eat it, doesnt mean you have to.
Infact you can make a healthier version using hazelnuts, sweetner and cacao or chocolate protein powder!
I dont personally like nutella, my body cant cope with too sweet or sugary foods and for me, nutella makes me break into sweat, feel dizzy and can even make me sick… But thats just my body!
Why Fitblrs eat it? Well im guessing its because they like it… also, if you need to gain weight then its a good thing to add as well 😉 (despite the sugar content!) Also many people who do IIFYM eat things like nutella and poptarts!! Though i think IIFYM is just an excuse to eat whatever you want and say ‘if it fits your macros!’
Those who eat ‘healthy’ or ‘clean eating’ would never eat nutella, as it doesnt fit their ‘diet’
I dont label what or how i eat… i jsut eat everything in moderation and balance. So if i want a tablespoon or two of nutella i would eat it! But as im no nutella fan, i would prefer a spoon… or half a tub (^_^)o ofBen and jerrys!
