Deceiving Foods That Make You Fat

On today’s episode, I’m showing you 6 surprising “health” foods that make you fat.

Yes, it’s time to learn why these unhealthy foods that are marketed as being healthy, are ruining your chances of:

  • getting a flat stomach
  • losing belly fat
  • getting six pack abs

I’m also going to show you how to swap out these foods that make you fat, with healthy foods that will help you get six pack abs.

Side note: to film this video, I had to go to the grocery store to buy the 6 unhealthy foods.

The cost to buy these 6 unhealthy “diet” foods was $13.37.

Yes, approximately $14 wasted on deceiving foods that most people think are healthy.

Lets get into it.

6 Health Foods That Make You Fat:

6 Health Foods That Make You Fat

#1. Zero Calorie Artificial Sweeteners

Yes, they’re zero calories.

No, they don’t contain sugar.

But…

Isn’t the name, “ARTIFICIAL sweeteners”, a dead giveaway?

Artificial sweeteners are made up of chemicals which may actually trick your brain into craving sugar.

These chemicals may also increase your toxic load as your body does not know how to properly process them.

Healthy Food Swap:

Get artificial sweeteners out of your diet and replace them with zero calorie natural sweeteners
like stevia.

Stevia is a natural sweetener that comes from a plant.

So if you need to add sweetener to your food and drinks, go with stevia.

#2. Diet Soda

Are you kidding me?

Do people still believe that diet soda is actually healthy for you?

Remember, just because diet soda has zero calories, it doesn’t mean it’s healthy for you, especially when it contains chemicals and artificial sweeteners.

Healthy Food Swap:

Get diet soda out of your diet and replace it with water.

Your body is made up of approximately 60% water, not soda.

Water is the life of the body.

If you’re tired of drinking water, add lemon to it to make lemon water.

Lemon water tastes great, and is very healthy as it helps alkalize the body.

#3. Orange Juice:

You’ve probably heard orange contains vitamin C, but it’s not the best way to get vitamin C into your diet.

Conventional orange juice is processed and highly pasteurized which kills most of the vitamins and minerals.

Most of the fiber has also been removed, thus essentially creating sugar water, which can wreck havoc on your metabolic system.

Healthy Food Swap:

Get orange juice out of your diet and replace it with eating the whole orange.

Eating the whole fruit is a much better source of vitamin C and nutrients, since you not only get the healthy fiber, but you also get the vitamins and minerals as well.

If you want to drink orange juice, juice it yourself to ensure you get the vitamins and minerals.

The only time I have the occasional drink of orange juice is if I have it in my post workout protein shake.

If you’re already pretty lean, that’s the one time orange juice can be beneficial, as your body can handle the blood sugar spike after a tough workout.

The reason for this is simple.

The amount of sugar in orange juice can quickly spike your blood sugar, which then can help shuttle the amino acids from your protein shake into your muscle cells to be repaired.

#4. Soy Milk

As funny as it may sound, I actually had to go to the “health” food section to find soy milk.

If you ever want to get a flat stomach, do yourself a favor and get soy out of your diet.

Soy is highly genetically modified, refined, cheap, and there are many potential hormonal issues caused from the highly sprayed pesticides and chemicals.

Healthy Food Swap:

Get soy milk out of your diet and replace it with almond milk or coconut milk.

I really like coconut milk from the can.

When I buy it, I usually take it out of the can and store it in a glass Tupperware dish.

#5. Whole Wheat Bread

Let me get right to the point.

Grains and wheat are not the best sources of fiber or calories for your body.

In fact, many people have issues processing the wheat and the gluten as they don’t even realize they have gluten sensitivities.

Consuming grains in moderation is fine for some people who are active and don’t have food sensitivities.

However, most people are consuming way too many grains for their activity level.

This spikes their blood sugar, and throws their insulin levels all over the place.

Healthy Food Swap:

Get the refined wheat out of your diet and replace it with healthy carbohydrate sources like fibrous vegetables and some fruit.

If you really love bread, try swapping your conventional white or whole wheat bread with 100% sprouted whole grain bread like Ezekiel bread.

You can find most sprouted whole grain breads in the freezer section of the grocery store.

A lot of the healthier bread options have to be kept frozen as there are no preservatives or chemicals in the bread.

Therefore most healthier bread options need to stay cold or frozen to keep.

#6. Margarine

First of all, even it the label on the package says it’s healthy, should you believe that?

Definitely not.

Don’t fall for the deceiving marketing on the nutrition label.

If you look at the ingredients list, margarine is filled with crap.

Healthy Food Swap:

Real natural organic grass fed butter.

If your body can handle dairy, butter is not bad for you.

Although there are many false claims that saturated fat is bad for you, this is not true.

Saturated fat is not necessarily bad for you if it comes from a whole healthy natural source.

Look for whole natural organic grass fed butter and get rid of the unhealthy margarine.

So there you have it.

Get rid of those 6 foods out of your diet, and watch your belly fat disappear as your body burns off your stored body fat for energy.
