If you’re on Instagram, you know that it’s filled with perfectly curated photos of someone’s salad, smoothie bowl, “cheat day” meal, or [insert trendy food here].

But what you may not realize is that each and every one of us perceives those images in a different way.

For example, a woman looking to lose weight may be thinking about the calories and macros; a chef may be pondering the dynamic flavor profiles; someone following Portion Fix may wonder what the container count is; someone following 2B Mindset may wonder how many fiber-filled carbs they have to add to make it a meal, while a busy mom may be shaking her head wondering, “How do people have so much time on their hands?”

Whatever may be going through your head is a good indicator of your relationship with food.

A healthy mindset around food and healthy habits when it comes to eating go a long way in helping achieve weight loss and weight-maintenance goals.

Here are a few traits of people who are at peace with what’s on their plate:

1. They eat food for fuel and health, not to suppress emotions

People with a healthy relationship to food view it as a source of fuel that provides nourishment for their body to run efficiently, power through a tough workout, keep them healthy, and their brain sharp.

They’re free from emotional eating — they know that food isn’t a cure for sadness, boredom, stress, anxiousness, or loneliness.

2. They practice intuitive eating

People with a healthy relationship to food seem to have the innate skill of intuitive eating.

This means that they eat when they’re hungry, stop when they feel satisfied, and don’t let outside influences dictate what time or what types of foods they should be eating.

We’re born with an innate sense of intuitive eating and as adults, we often lose that ability.

The sweet spot is re-learning that intuitive eating behavior and adapting it to fit your goals.

Methods like the Beachbody Portion Fix Containers teach what healthy, balanced eating looks like, helping people get back to that sweet spot.

There are also times when a schedule might need to be paired with intuition, such as when you’re eating for a specific goal like weight loss or athletic performance.

When you’re eating for a future event, your “in the moment” hunger state may need to be steered by forward-looking strategy.

Again, in these moments, a little guidance can help even people with a healthy relationship to food.

Still, the ability to know your body’s signals and then respond to those inner-body cues without feelings of guilt or judgment can lead to a more positive body image, fewer disordered eating tendencies, and an increased likelihood of taking on other healthy lifestyle habits.

3. They don’t feel the need to “make up” for an imperfect eating day

People with a healthy relationship to food enjoy the occasional treat without the accompanying guilt.

For them, diet is never all-or-nothing (i.e black/white; good/bad). They tend to follow the 80/20 rule, meaning they eat healthy 80 percent of the time and allow for indulgences 20 percent of the time.

They enjoy treats mindfully – they take the time to truly experience the taste, texture, smell, and the beauty of what they’re eating.

So you had a couple slices of pizza or an ice cream cone every now and then — good for you! At the end of the day, you should enjoy living your life.

4. They don’t allow food to dictate their lives

People with a healthy relationship to food don’t obsess about food to the point where it interferes with how they go about their business.

They may meal prep on Sunday and have an Instagram feed filled with indulgent food photos.

But eating and everything about food don’t take precedence over family, friends, or personal goals.

If you find yourself skipping out on events for fear of overindulging on bar food or bottomless mimosas, it may be time to work on a more balanced mindset toward food.

5. They don’t compare their body or what they eat to others

People with a healthy relationship to food understand that we are all unique in body, mind, and spirit.

Our bodies aren’t meant to look like one another and we aren’t all supposed to look like supermodel or superheroes.

They feel comfortable ordering a juicy hamburger when their friend orders a salad because they know that next time they’ll probably try the salad when their friend orders dessert.

What we can all strive for is a strong, healthy body with confidence that radiates.

So how do you know if your relationship with food may be off-balance?

Take stock and see if these behaviors sound familiar to you:

  • You’re dieting more often than not.
  • You get anxious when the number on the scale goes up and you shame yourself for it.
  • You use exercise solely to compensate for having eaten something “bad” instead of aiming to improve your fitness or rocking a strong, fit body.
  • You’re consumed by food all the time and find yourself anxious about all things related to food (planning, obtaining, preparing, consuming).
  • You tend to gravitate toward “diet” foods.
  • You avoid social outings for fear of having to make difficult food decisions and often eat in private (either over-consuming or under-consuming).
  • You connect food with emotion (stress, boredom, entertainment, happiness, sadness, etc.) then feel guilty post-nosh.

These thought patterns, constant yo-yo dieting that can wreak havoc on your metabolism, and mentally beating yourself up over food can hinder weight-loss goals or worse — could eventually develop into a more serious eating disorder and/or malnourishment.

The Bottom Line

But remember: A mental shift won’t happen overnight. So the next time you find yourself engaged in one of these negative behaviors like emotional eating, constant dieting, or shaming yourself for eating a slice of cake, focus on progress, not perfection.

Baby steps help blend the black and white or the good vs. bad and steer you in a more positive direction.

Baby steps include identifying the underlying trigger that drives your emotional eating, tossing the fad diet books and using practical, balanced nutrition as your guide, or giving yourself permission to have a “cheat day” once a week.

When you can freely skip a date with the gym for a date with your spouse or savor a square of dark chocolate without fear of you might devour the whole bar, you know that your relationship with food has reached a whole new level.

Beachbody Performance Recover is more than just your average tub of protein powder.

Right after you work out, your muscles go into serious rebuilding mode. By consuming protein within 30 minutes of working out, you give your body the building blocks it needs to do this effectively.

Recover is a chocolatey post-workout drink that does this with a propriety blend of fast-absorbing whey protein, medium-absorbing pea protein, and slow-absorbing casein protein to assure you have protein on hand for the entire process.

We teamed up with sports-nutrition experts at the University of Exeter in England to test the effect of drinking Recover on post-exercise muscle soreness and muscle function.

Check out the results!

If you’ve ever wondered exactly how a daily Shakeology works to help curb your cravings, we’ve got the 411:

Shakeology is loaded with protein and provides fiber — both of which help promote a feeling of satiety and curb appetite.

So drinking it before a meal is what’s referred to in clinical circles as “pre-loading,” or consuming a pre-meal snack to suppress hunger and decrease food intake.

To make sure that it lives up to our (and your!) high expectations, we conducted a clinical trial on the short-term effects of Shakeology on appetite, as well as food intake at the next meal.

Check out the results:

Ever wondered how Beachbody Performance Energize can help you make the most out of your workout?

Energize combines three key ingredients (beta-alaninecaffeine, and quercetin), which have individually shown to help boost energy, enhance exercise performance, or delay fatigue (or all three).

We teamed up with sports-nutrition experts at the University of Exeter in England to measure the effects of Energize on exercise performance and perceived effort in a study of 14 male and female cyclists.

Check out the results!

You probably know by now that if you want to get healthy and fit, Shakeology can play a key role in helping you hit that goal.

This superfood supplement shake works by filling some of the nutritional gaps in your diet with ingredients that can benefit your overall health, help support healthy energy,† and support your digestive healthǂ.

When you drink a Shakeology every day, it can help you build the strong nutritional foundation you need to take on bigger challenges like a fitness program or a healthier diet.

Shakeology includes a variety of nutrients, including protein, carbs, fiber, phytonutrients, antioxidants, digestive enzymes, pre- and probiotics, adaptogens, vitamins, and minerals.

But you’re probably thinking to yourself, “OK, that all sounds great, but what about sugar?”

That’s an excellent question because there’s ample evidence that sugar doesn’t do sweet things to your health. So, yes, it’s a good thing to keep an eye on how much sugar you’re consuming on a daily basis.

Here’s the 411 on sugar and Shakeology.

Note: This article is intended for the U.K. audience. Click here for the U.S. version.

Shakeology Sugar Content

Shakeology contains seven grams of sugar per serving from a combination of organic cane sugar and various superfood fruit powders. (Vegan Chocolate contains six grams per serving.

To put this into perspective, there are 14 grams of sugar in a medium banana and 19 grams of sugar in a medium apple.

We formulated UK Shakeology using a carefully selected sweetener system containing organic cane sugar and a plant-based, no-calorie sweetener — stevia, an extract from the leaves of the stevia plant that’s 150 times sweeter than sugar.

That’s it.

Sugar vs. Sweeteners

Sweetness can be achieved a variety of ways: First, there’s sugar, which can be found listed as “Sugars” under the Total Carbohydrate section on the label – which includes both sugar-based ingredients and sugars inherent in other botanical ingredients in the product.

Sugar-based ingredients come in many forms including cane sugar, honey, molasses, and more controversial ingredients such as high fructose corn syrup (HFCS).

Sugar can also be found within other ingredients in a product, such as skimmed milk powder, which contains lactose (milk sugar) and fruit powders, which contain fruit sugar (fructose).

Sugar is nutritive, meaning it contains calories, versus non-nutritive sweeteners, meaning ingredients that add flavor but little-or-no calories.

Non-nutritive sweeteners include artificial sweeteners like aspartame and sucralose, as well as plant-based sweeteners like stevia.

The easiest way to sweeten something is to just add sugar, but that drives the calories up, which isn’t always the best way to go.

While non-nutritive sweeteners solve the calorie issue, they tend to have their own unique properties and challenges.

Therefore, to find a balance of flavor, sweetness, and smart nutrition, it often makes sense to use a combination of sugar and sweeteners.

Sugar Content Information

To see the sugar content in a product, check out the Nutrition Declaration box on the back of the label, which is required to list the sugars in a product.

Some products will claim “no sugar added” on the front of their packaging. But that doesn’t mean these products are entirely free of sugar. It just means the sugars in the product aren’t “added sugars.” Rather, the sugars are inherent in other ingredients.

Sugar can go by many names, so it’s important to recognize other ways sugar can be hidden in the ingredient list:

  • fruit juice concentrate
  • cane juice
  • turbinado
  • malt syrup
  • corn syrup solids
  • dextrin
  • words that end in –ose, like maltose, dextrose, and fructose

In the “Ingredients” section on a typical food label, they are listed in order of greatest to least amount.

The Bottom Line

Following a healthy, balanced diet doesn’t mean cutting sugar out completely. By making smart food choices, you can still enjoy the sweetness in life!

†Vitamins C, B6, and B12 contribute to normal energy-yielding metabolism.

ǂ Calcium contributes to the normal function of digestive enzymes.

You probably know by now that if you want to get healthy and fit, Shakeology can play a key role in helping you hit that goal.

This superfood supplement shake works by filling some of the nutritional gaps in your diet with ingredients that can help support digestive health, provide healthy energy, reduce cravings and help you just plain feel better.*

When you drink a Shakeology every day, it can help you build the strong nutritional foundation you need to take on bigger challenges like a fitness program or a healthier diet.

Shakeology includes a variety of nutrients, including protein, carbs, fiber, phytonutrients, antioxidants, digestive enzymes, pre- and probiotics, adaptogens, vitamins, and minerals.

But you’re probably thinking to yourself, “OK, that all sounds great, but what about sugar?”

That’s an excellent question because there’s ample evidence that sugar doesn’t do sweet things to your health.

For reference, the American Heart Association recommendations for daily added sugar intake is no more than six teaspoons (25 g) for women, and nine teaspoons (36 g) for men. (yes, teaspoons.)

So, yes, it’s a good thing to keep an eye on how much sugar you’re consuming on a daily basis.

Here’s the 411 on sugar and Shakeology.

Note: This article is intended for the U.S. audience. Click here for the U.K. version.

Shakeology Sugar Content

Shakeology contains seven grams of sugar per serving from a combination of organic cane sugar and fruit powders. (Vegan Café Latte contains eight grams per serving.)

To put this into perspective, there are 14 grams of sugar in a medium banana and 19 grams of sugar in a medium apple.

Previously, fructose was an ingredient in whey-based Shakeology, and agave was an ingredient in Vegan Shakeology. However, we found that replacing fructose and agave with organic cane sugar resulted in a more well-rounded sweetness.

We reformulated Shakeology in 2017 using a carefully selected sweetener system containing organic cane sugar and two plant-based, no-calorie sweeteners:

1. Stevia, an extract from the leaves of the stevia plant that’s 150 times sweeter than sugar.

2. Luo han guo (aka, monk fruit), a fruit extract that is nearly 300 times sweeter than sugar.

That’s it. No artificial sweeteners, colors, preservatives, or flavors.

Sugar vs. Sweeteners

Sweetness can be achieved a variety of ways: First, there’s sugar, which can be found listed as “Sugars” under the Total Carbohydrate section on the label – which includes both sugar-based ingredients and sugars inherent in other botanical ingredients in the product.

Therefore, to find a balance of flavor, sweetness, and smart nutrition, it often makes sense to use a combination of sugar and sweeteners.

Sugar Content Information

To see the sugar content in a product, check out the Nutrition Facts box or Supplement Facts box on the back of the label, which is required to list ALL sugars in a product, not just the added ones.

Some products will claim “no sugar added” on the front of their packaging. But that doesn’t mean these products are entirely free of sugar. It just means the sugars in the product aren’t “added sugars.” Rather, the sugars are inherent in other ingredients.

One question I get a lot is, “Why do you always add gelatin to your stocks?”

I decided to do a post on this because the answer is actually more complicated than you might think.

It’s complicated because there are so many good reasons — both from a health and a culinary point of view — to make this magic ingredient a pantry staple.

What IS Gelatin?

First, let’s talk about what it is: Gelatin is what collagen turns into after extended periods of low and slow heating.

It’s a protein loaded with many amino acids that are normally only found in the parts of animals we don’t eat (think bones and tough connective tissue).

Traditionally, those less edible parts would go into a stock pot with water and vegetables and simmer for six to 12 hours, until all of their healthy goodness is extracted.

Most store-bought stocks today aren’t made in this traditional manner because it’s too time-consuming and expensive.

So, if you want the benefits of a bone broth, or “stock” as we refer to it in the culinary world, but you don’t have time to make your own, you can enrich the store-bought stuff with a little bit of all-natural, unflavored gelatin.

You can find gelatin in the baking aisle of your local grocery store. Just make sure you don’t get the sweetened, colored, flavored stuff you use to make dessert; we’re looking for pure gelatin.

It comes as a powder, but it also comes in sheet form, but gelatin sheets are a specialty product used mostly by pastry chefs. I like to add one teaspoon per cup of broth, hydrating it for five minutes in the cold or room temperature broth before heating to avoid clumps.

Every good bone broth will set like Jell-O once cooled to refrigerator temperatures, but we’ll, of course, be consuming it warm, where it will yield a protein-rich, full-bodied stock that’s hearty and satisfying, keeping you full for hours without leaving you feeling deprived.

Gelatin Benefits

First, of course, is that protein we just talked about, which is an important part of a healthy diet — there are six grams of protein in a tablespoon of gelatin powder, so you’re getting quite a bang for your buck.

Gelatin also contains the amino acid lysine, which can help the body absorb calcium, which in turn, is essential for healthy bones. More research is needed, but some studies show that collagen consumption may help with issues like joint pain and osteoarthritis.

All in all, that’s a pretty nice package of benefits you can get from consuming gelatin!

Cooking With Gelatin

Now, let’s talk about gelatin’s culinary functions.

Stocks made with gelatin are rich, both in flavor and mouth-feel. They have a silky, satisfying texture that you normally only get from fatty foods like butter and cream.

But gelatin achieves this by way of lean protein, so it’s a win for people trying to add richness to meals without the addition of excess fat.

A proper gelatin-rich stock can even be reduced by simmering until it forms what we call a demi-glace — a thick, rich glaze that’s amazing on everything from chicken to roast vegetables.

Demi-glace is one of those rare culinary miracles that will make you feel like you’re eating the most decadent, butter-laced sauce imaginable, but is, in fact, high in protein and virtually fat-free!

Gelatin also acts as a binder. It’s a kind of chemical magnet that links other compounds that would normally separate into a more stable emulsion.

That magnetic character also makes gelatin a fantastic flavor conduit. What I mean by conduit is that it binds the various flavor elements of a dish together, forming a harmonious whole that is then transferred to the taste buds in a burst of flavor that coats the palate and lingers in a long, savory finish that leaves you smacking your lips and wondering what it is that tastes so good that you just can’t put your finger on.

It’s the chef’s secret behind so many of those amazing, high-end restaurant sauces that the average home cook puzzles over, wondering what strange alchemy they teach in culinary school.

The Bottom Line

There is a myriad of wonderful reasons to add gelatin to your stocks. This inexpensive, shelf-stable ingredient is a pantry staple in my kitchen, and once you’ve given it a try, I think it will become just as indispensable in your home.

It enhances flavor without the salt and sugar; it adds richness and body without the fat; and it leaves you feeling full and sated, making this ingredient a healthy chef’s favorite secret weapon.

Happy cooking,

Chef Bobby
