Ask the Dr - One bite won't hurt

Do you know what is really responsible for fat gain and becoming over weight?


The fat content of foods?

The wrong type of fats in foods?

Could it be food Processing in general?


Gaining weight comes down to one thing...


That is, consistently making the wrong choices, each day, no matter how small.

Did you know that Fat loss and getting in shape is exactly the same?

Success comes down to consistency!

That is, consistently making the right choices, each day.

No matter how small, they add up to huge successes

Let me explain exactly what I mean...

Many people think nothing of choosing a chocolate chip cookie as a mid-morning or afternoon snack.

Just 1 Bite of this 95 gram cookie gives you around 15 grams of sugar, 6 grams of fat and 120 nutrientless calories.

That one bite, every day for a year is

5 and a half kilos of sugar!
Over 2 kilos of fat!
Over 43 thousand empty calories!

Now let us show you some much better choices, the same amount of calories as just one bite of the cookie!

Better Choice -

One 200g tub no-fat, no-added sugar vanilla yoghurt 10 strawberries 1 tspn flaxseed meal gives you 120 delicious, nutritious calories

TCB Better Choice - Apple Strudel Crepe

Same amount of calories as one bite of the cookie with 9 grams of protein, less than 3 grams of fat and much more nutrition

TCB Better Choice - Mocha Praline Mousse

Similar amount of calories but packed with 22 grams of protein, no added sugar and less than 4 grams of fat!

TCB Better Choice - Cauli Chili Tacos

Packed with veggies, just 161 Calories per taco and 4.5 grams of fat

TCB Better Choice - Vanilla Panna Cotta

Similar calories as one bite of the cookie with over 17 grams of protein & less than 1 gram of fat.

TCB Better Choice - Bacon & Egg Cupcakes

You could have two of these, get 16 grams of protein, 2 grams of fat with less calories than one bite of the cookie!

TCB Better Choice - Pear & Mixed Berry Crumble

Same amount of calories as one bite of the cookie, less than 1 gram of fat & much more satisfying nutrition

TCB Better Choice - a slice of Shar's amazing Caramel Choc Chip Banana Bread

One slice, same amount of calories as one bite of the cookie, no added sugar and just 2.9 grams of fat.

With these TCB approved choices, the difference is they each contain less than half the calories of one cookie. Each are far more nutritious, satisfying and delicious. Therefore each choice will contribute more to your success.

Now consider that our cookie has 4 bites. What does that look like if you chose to have one cookie as a snack, every day for a year...

  • Over 21 kilograms of sugar!
  • Almost 9 kilograms of pure fat!
  • Over 175,000 empty calories.

Imagine what you'd save by replacing that one cookie with a better choice each day.

Food for thought before taking a bite.
