On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m talking about the 3 types of foods you should never eat.
If there’s one thing you can count on, it’s that all nutrition, fitness, and health coaches will never 100% agree on what foods make up the optimal diet.
Based on this, who’s 100% right?
Unfortunately, there is not one diet that is 100% right for everyone.
The reason is simple.
All our bodies are different.
For instance, meet John and Ron:
The point is, there is not one perfect diet for everyone.
It’s up to you to test different foods on your body, and see what you react to best.
With that said, I could simply list 3 foods that everyone already knows they should not eat.
These obvious foods you should not eat include pretty much all foods containing trans fat, including:
However, I want to get a little more insightful with you in this video post, since it’s my goal to help you foster a better relationship with food.
Remember, food is not the enemy.
Here are 3 nutrition principles, to help you figure out for yourself, the specific foods you personally should never eat, based on your own body.
These “bet you can’t just eat one” foods are also known as trigger foods.
You know those foods right?
You try to be good by having just one bite, but then the hunger hormones and chemicals start pumping through your body.
This makes you go back for more, and more, and more.
The trigger foods that come to mind for me, include potato chips and ice cream.
It’s hard for me to have just one dill pickle flavored potato chip, and then stop.
After having a small serving of potato chips, I’ll put them back in the cabinet, but then I’ll keep thinking about them, so I’ll go back and eat more.
In other words, you feel like you’re never satisfied, and can never fill yourself up, until you eat the entire bag or carton.
Then it hits you 15 minutes later, and you feel like a pile of s*%t.
If this sounds familiar, avoid that trigger food.
The next foods you should never eat are foods that you’re allergic too or have food insensitivities too.
Many people have negative reactions when certain foods enter their body.
These minor negative reactions can cause:
Or it can be more serious via allergic reactions.
If you notice you’re feeling off after eating certain foods, try removing them from your diet for a period of time, then see how you feel.
Many people call this the elimination diet.
For me, I figured out when I have dairy, my belly bloats and expands like a pregnant lady with 6 pack abs.
Ask your doctor about taking an IGG or IGE test to measure for food allergies and food intolerances.
Now this doesn’t mean you should never eat any vegetables.
This simply means if you don’t like broccoli, even after experimenting with various cooking options and herbs, spices, and seasonings, don’t eat it.
By forcing yourself to eat something that you absolutely hate, you are reinforcing negative feelings towards vegetables as a whole.
This also places a negative experience towards eating healthy.
You’ll never stick to a long-term healthy way of eating if your idea of that includes forcing down broccoli every day.
Find another vegetable that you like to eat and move on.
However, before giving up on a healthy food, just make sure you’ve tried various cooking methods and spices before banishing it from your diet.
I can’t tell you how much learning how to cook has changed my body and life.
