Live Lean Nation, on today’s episode of Live Lean TV I’m talking about 3 Foods You Should Never Eat.
OK. 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.
Vegetarians will never eat meat. Vegans won’t eat eggs. And hard core Paleo people won’t eat grains.
Our bodies are different. John will respond well to eating foods A, B, & C. While will Ron respond best to eating foods D, E, & F.
The point is, there’s 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.
Now with that said, I could simply list 3 foods that everyone already knows they should not eat. Pretty much all deep fried food and trans fat loaded cakes and cookies.
But I want to get a little more insightful with you on this video.
I want you to share with you 3 principles to help you figure out for yourself, the specific foods that you personally should never eat based on your own body.
It’s my goal to help you foster a better relationship with food.
Food is not the enemy.
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 foods that come to mind for me are foods like potato chips and ice cream.
It’s hard for me to have one dill pickle flavored potato chip and then stop. I keep thinking about them in my cabinet and go back for 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 mins later and you feel like a pile of S%*t.
Many people have negative reactions when certain foods enter their body. This can be minor like causing bloating, gas, or upset stomach…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 and see how you feel. Some call it the elimination diet.
I figured this out for me that when I have dairy…my belly bloats and expands like a pregnant lady with 6 pack abs.
You could also have an IGG or IGE test to measure allergies and food intolerance.
Now this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t eat any vegetables.
This simply means if you don’t like broccoli and have experimented with various cooking options and spices…then don’t eat it.
By forcing yourself to eat something you hate, you’re reinforcing negative feelings towards vegetables as a whole, and placing 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.
But just make sure you’ve tried various cooking methods and spices before banishing a healthy food.
Investing in a cookbook, like my Eat Clean Live Lean Cookbook is a great way to learn how to make all healthy food taste great.
I can’t tell you how much learning how to cook has changed my body and life.
