Energy Content of Muffins
If you want to lose body fat, a muffin bread snack is not a good food option for a healthy weight loss diet, as it has a high calorie-content. In general, calorie-controlled diets recommend a low intake of muffin-type snacks. In addition to energy content, dietary nutrition is also important, as a nutritious diet helps the body to burn calories faster and maintains a healthy metabolic rate. Thus as well as calorie-counting, check food labels for nutritional value. Nutritional and energy values provided on most of the above food pages include: vitamins, minerals, folate and dietary fiber, as well as protein and carbs. Learning about dietary nutrition makes calorie control and weight management easier and helps you to follow a healthy eating plan. See also Nutrition in Muffins
How To Save Calories
Calorie savings tip: If you are counting calories for weight loss purposes, the best way to lower energy intake is to eat fewer muffins - or at least smaller muffins. Also, remember that any physical exercise helps to increase energy-expenditure and thus allows you to eat bigger muffins with less risk of weight gain.
