I was reading an article on MSNBC about fitness rules you should break. While the majority are interesting and worth a try, there was one part that irritated me.
There was a blurb on protein intake and an RD – a registered dietitian – said “Any extra protein calories you take in will be stored as fat,” says Molly Morgan, R.D., owner of Creative Nutrition Solutions in Vestal, New York.
That is just total B.S.
It’s not like if you eat a turkey sandwich, that the body will pick it apart and only store the excess protein as fat. It’s excess calories…. hello…. it doesn’t matter if they are fat, carbs, or protein. The body uses the calories it needs and stores the rest. Yes, some calories are used much more efficiently, but it’s not like if I eat 1000 calories of white rice it won’t make me fat, whereas 1000 calories of chicken breast will.
It’s really amazing how much old information is still being spouted by so-called experts.
