Question: "Are vegetarian lentil burgers lower in calories than beef burgers?" -Kelsey


Answer: While calories are a popular measure of healthy-or-not, I encourage you to explore how well the food keeps you satiated as opposed to just looking at calories! Every body reacts differently to foods; some bodies enjoy more protein, some do better with less protein and more complex carbs. That is up to you and your body to find out!

To figure this out: eat both foods in question slowly and on totally separate days. See how the foods feel as you eat; how quickly are you filling up, do you feel energized, sated, queezy, tired? 30 minutes later check in again; tired, nauseous, light, energized? Two hours later; hungry, sleepy, sick, bloated? This simple check in can tell you exactly what foods work well for your body and you can use it as a measure to determine how to eat in general.
