On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing the worst type of fish to eat that makes you fat.
Most of us think eating fish is healthy and a great way to Live Lean.
Yes, this can be true, but not always.
Here’s a little story about how eating fish can make you fat.
The other day at the gym, I was walking to the squat rack, when I heard someone yell the following in my direction.
“Bro, I have question for you.”
As I turned around, I noticed it was James.
Before I tell you what his question was, let me give you a little background on who James is.
James is the typical guy that every gym seems to have.
He’s a talker, not a worker.
Here was James’ question.
James: “Bro, I’ve been eating fish a lot lately, but I’ve been noticing that I’m getting fat. I thought fish was healthy bro!”
With a mysterious look, I reply back:
Brad: “You’re getting fat, from fish? Really? How are you cooking it?”
James replies back with a surprised look on his face.
James: “Oh, it matters how it is cooked bro? I don’t know how it’s cooked, since they don’t let you back in the kitchen to watch.”
Brad: Oh, so you’re ordering it out a lot?
James: Yeah bro, everyday. I heard fish is supposed to be healthy for you.
Brad: Oh, it is good for you when it’s prepared properly. Fish is best when it’s grilled or baked, and then seasoned with spices and herbs, rather than sauces. Is that how you’ve been ordering it from the waiter?
James laughs and says the following.
James: No bro, McDonald’s doesn’t have waiters.
James: Yeah bro, the filet-o-fish.
I think you know where this story is going.
In this case, deep frying anything will ruin all health benefits of the food, and will quickly pack on the belly busting fat.
Same goes for breaded frozen fish sticks and deep fried fish cakes.
The ingredients in the batter, and the oils used in the frying, are terrible for your health and waistline.
You can ruin any super healthy food by the way it’s prepared, or the ingredients that are added to it.
When preparing your own fish at home, or if you’re ordering out, always go for grilled or baked, never deep fried.
Also, try to avoid battered versions, unless the batter is made of healthy ingredients like coconut or nut based flours, or the very least oat based flour.
White flour is not your guts friend.
