healthy foods that you’re eating that aren’t actually healthy this is
important because it’s hard enough to lose weight as it is you don’t want to
be sabotaging your own efforts by eating foods that aren’t actually helping your
weight loss goals so make sure you stick around until the end of the video
because some of these foods that I’m about to mention might surprise you

daily awesome Fitness content just like this okay so let’s go through these ten
healthy foods in order based on when we consume them throughout the day first up
is the almighty breakfast cereal this is probably one of the most damaging things
we put in our body because we get started on this stuff at a very early
age so I was born in Asia and growing up I didn’t eat breakfast cereal breakfast
cereals were completely foreign to me it was only when I moved to North America
that I was introduced to this stuff and I was like what you eat that stuff first
thing in the morning and the main problem with breakfast cereals is that
they are unbelievably highly processed and they’re full of sugar the problem is
it’s also a multi-billion dollar industry through sheer brilliant marketing
eating breakfast cereals has become the norm in North America and they’re really
smart when it comes to marketing this stuff so they put like cartoon
characters and action figures on the box and kids just go crazy over this stuff
and then we somehow justify eating this stuff and give it to our kids because
it’s fortified with vitamins and minerals as if that means anything the
problem is you’re only getting the synthetic version of those vitamins and
minerals because it gets added back to the food after all the processing that
it goes through I literally cannot think of a worse way to start your day by
eating a sugar bomb first thing in the morning by eating breakfast cereal next
up are granola bars protein bars and meal replacement bars they’re all the
same we live in a world where you can have anything on the go so we’re
all busy and sometimes we don’t have time to eat first thing in the morning
so we grab whatever’s convenient and that’s when these bars come in
it’s basically breakfast cereals evil cousin they’re literally the exact same
thing but again through brilliant marketing so they’re labeled as vegan
organic gluten-free non-gmo its high in fiber as if again that means anything
listen a cardboard box is also vegan non-gmo organic and high in fiber it
doesn’t mean that you should eat it the problem is most of these protein bars
and granola bars are laced with sugar or artificial sweeteners so if you look at
the back of the packaging it wouldn’t say sugar all the time it’ll usually say
sucralose or dextrose or maltodextrin or one of the 61 different names of sugar
if you’re in North America then you’ll know what this is but a Cliff Bar for
example has 240 calories 5 grams of fat 44 grams of carbs 22 grams of it being
sugar and 10 grams of protein compare that to a Snickers bar which has
280 calories 14 grams of fat 35 grams of carbs 30 grams of sugar and 4 grams of
protein they’re really not that far off from each other yet one gets demonized
and the other one gets a free pass next up are meal replacement shakes again
people consume this stuff because they’re branded as being healthy it’s
like you know meal on the go and to be clear I know I actually know some people
who’s lost weight on this stuff so I’m talking about those people that drink
like slimfast Shakeology or whatever company that’s just popping up left
right and center here because there’s big money on this stuff the problem is
do you really want to be drinking weight loss shakes for the rest of your life
can you sustain that and what are the long-term implications of drinking this
highly processed concoction that you’re drinking again the problem lies in the
processing so it contains fillers the main ingredients usually are high
fructose corn syrup vegetable oils which are highly highly inflammatory and
they’re usually sweetened with artificial sweeteners to keep the
calories down the problem is it’s not satiating you drink this stuff and
you know an hour or two later you’re hungry already
it’s laced with preservatives it’s laced with the 61 different names of sugar
that I mentioned earlier and they tend to be really expensive and you just have
to use some common sense here I mean you’re not eating real food here you’re
eating food-like products by drinking you know these meal replacement shakes
next up is fruit and I’m gonna get a lot of flack for this but I don’t care I’m
all about telling the truth fruit seems to get a health halo from a
lot of people and I guess if you’re replacing you know eating a bag of chips
and you’re eating fruit instead then I guess that’s a great first step but if
you’re trying to lose weight you should really limit your intake of fruits
especially the ones with high sugar content because here’s the thing your
body can’t tell the difference between eating fruit and eating candy it gets
processed the exact same way and the problem with fruit is it contains a type
of sugar called fructose which your liver can only process and high levels
of fructose in your system leads directly to fatty liver disease which is
directly linked to obesity and people still have this idea that they need to
consume you know five servings of fruits and vegetables every day that number by
the way is completely made up it’s not based on good science at all the
government literally just thought that five servings seems like a
good idea and that’s how that information became enshrined does that
sound like good science to you? And the other problem with fruit is the fruit
that we’re eating today is not even remotely close to being the same as the
fruit that our ancestors ate back in the day fruit today is genetically
modified to be sweeter it’s genetically modified to be bigger like banana back
in the day looks drastically different from a banana today same as tomatoes and
berries if you look at what a watermelon looks like back in the day versus the
stuff that we eat today they’re drastically different bottom
line is if your goal is weight loss you should be limiting your fruit
intake to avocado and berries next up is fruit juice this is the evil cousin of
fruit because now you’re getting it in its highly processed concentrated form
and that is a very bad thing at least with fruit you’re slowing down the
absorption of all those carbs and sugar in your body because of its fiber
content but when you drink fruit juice all of that gets taken away and when you
drink this stuff it literally acts like a sugar bomb once it enters your system
it’s no different than drinking a can of coke and the other problem with juice is
its serving size sometimes if you go to one of these fancy cold-pressed juice
places it’ll say oh it has five oranges cool my question is who eats five
oranges in one sitting and I don’t care that it has you know vitamin C or
whatever you can get vitamin C from better sources even broccoli has vitamin
C again drinking juice is no different than drinking a can of coke yet coke
gets demonized and juice gets a free pass for some reason next up are plant-based
substitutes and I’m gonna get a lot of flack for
saying this especially from the vegan community but
again I’m all about speaking the truth and I have nothing against vegans by the
way good for them but here’s the problem with plant-based substitutes let’s use
beyond burger for example it’s all the rage these days you know a lot of
fast-food joints have them a lot of restaurants serve beyond burgers and
people think it’s like the second coming of Jesus or something the problem with
beyond burgers is that if you look at the back of the box there are God
knows how many ingredients there are on a beyond burger versus let’s say a
burger patty the burger patty has one ingredient beef the beyond burger has
God knows how many ingredients and the amount of processing that it has to go
through for it to even look like you know a burger patty they need to make
this plant look like meat and a lot of processing needs to take place for that
to happen again most plant-based substitutes are highly
highly processed and it’s the exact same thing with like let’s say vegetable
chips listen they still need to be deep-fried in like canola or sunflower
oil which again are highly inflammatory bottom-line it’s when you’re trying to
make these healthy food choices just stick to single ingredient foods like
what’s the point of trying to go healthy by eating plant-based foods when you’re
eating an unbelievably highly processed food that makes zero sense to
me next up is diet soda listen diet soda is one of the biggest
lies in the fitness industry and again through brilliant marketing it’s being
branded as the healthier alternative to regular coke because it contains zero
calories as if that means anything in your body and I always say this in every
video but it’s worth repeating every single time your body doesn’t count
calories you have no calorie counter in your stomach your body however has a
physiological response every time you drink a can of Diet Coke it triggers an
insulin response and that’s important because insulin is what controls your
body weight so every time you trigger an insulin response your body goes into fat
storage mode and that’s how people get fat drinking this stuff diet coke
destroys your gut microbiome and it’s directly linked to obesity and here’s
the thing right do you know anybody who drinks diet coke and has lost a lot of
weight because of it no it’s the exact opposite and the other thing is people
use diet sodas as a crutch for their bad food choices like they’ll order the worst
thing on the menu and then they’ll say oh can I get a diet coke
with that please next up are low-fat dairy and low calorie foods it’s 2019
and we still have a fat phobia i spend a lot of time at coffee shops and you
still hear so many people order their skinny vanilla lattes there’s a lot of
research out there these days that shows that saturated fat and cholesterol are
actually not bad for you it was wrongfully demonized back in 1960 and it
led to unintended consequences like the obesity epidemic that we’re dealing with
these days the problem with low-fat dairy and low calorie foods in general
is that to make anything low-fat or low calorie fat is the main thing that gets
stripped away so it goes through again a lot of processing they take away the fat
because fat is calorically dense and once they take out the fat they need to
replace it with something else to make it taste good and that something else
is sugar so usually anything that’s low fat is actually high sugar low calorie
ice-cream is a perfect example of this so if you know about the brand
halo top if you’re in North America it’s really popular because it’s low calorie
it’s literally the dream you know you can eat low calorie ice cream but again
it’s highly processed they use sugar alcohols in this stuff and it’s really
not that much better than eating regular ice cream but again people eat this
stuff because they think it’s healthy next we have artificial sweeteners so
you’ve got your stevia Splenda sucralose maltodextrin they’re all the same it’s
branded as zero calories and people think that it’s good for you but again
your body still reacts to artificial sweeteners the same way your body thinks
that there’s food coming in so again it triggers an insulin response it triggers
the cephalic phase in your body again your body thinks there’s food coming in
so the more you consume this stuff the more you trigger an insulin response in
your body and persistently high levels of insulin leads to insulin resistance
and insulin resistance leads to diabetes and obesity listen
artificial sweeteners does not get a free pass in your body again zero
calories means nothing nothing that sweet gets a free pass and last but not
the least healthy whole grains if we do a little history lesson here back in the
60s obesity wasn’t a problem in the US and
back in 1977 the US released their first Dietary Guidelines for Americans they
told Americans to eat eight to twelve servings of grains and if I were to
pinpoint one reason why we have an obesity epidemic in north
America it’s because of the overconsumption of grains that and the
combination of us going from three meals a day to six meals a day and processed
grains does two really bad things to your body
number one is again it triggers an insulin response because most of the
grains that we consume are highly processed the higher the processing the
higher the insulin response and again if you’ve been watching my videos you’ll
know how important the insulin responses is in your body when it comes to setting
your body set weight and number two is that grains contain anti-nutrients
specifically lectins which is rarely ever talked about anti-nutrients reduces
the consumption of vitamins and minerals from a meal it can also trigger an
autoimmune response in your body because the lectins bind in the gut wall of your
stomach and your body starts attacking itself in the process
that’s how autoimmune diseases are born yet nobody talks about this stuff here’s
all you need to know about healthy whole grains okay so we evolved as humans two
and a half million years ago modern agriculture started ten thousand
years ago so that was when we started cultivating grains so our bodies evolved
to eat a certain way two and a half million years ago and then we started
eating grains ten thousand years ago if you do a little math that is 0.4% of
human history that we only started eating grains simply put our bodies
haven’t evolved to process this stuff yet our entire diet revolves around
grains these days North Americans predominantly still eats a very high
carb low fat diet and there’s nothing inherently wrong with eating carbs by
the way like a lot of you know traditional people still eat carbs like
the Okinawans and the Kitavans for example they eat a very high carb diet they eat
a lot of yams and tubers for example and they don’t have an obesity problem the
poison lies in the processing and that’s been a major theme from all the foods
that I mentioned in this video at the end of the day you just want to make
sure that you revolve your diet around single ingredient foods you want to
revolve your diet around plants and animals try to avoid refined carbs and
processed carbs don’t drink liquid calories and avoid added sugar and make
sure you do your own research before you start eating the next trendy healthy
food remember there are no bad foods only processed ones the next question
then becomes how are you actually supposed to eat if you want to lose
weight because let’s be honest 80% of your body composition
is determined by your diet you can’t just freestyle this part do
you have a proven plan that you can follow to help you with that I want to
give you a free copy of my lean body blueprint this is how I melted all the
fat around my stomach and turned it into a six-pack without going on a crazy diet

  1. Helpful tips as always , thanks again Carlo , I wanna do a low carb omad for a week but really can't seem to fight the hunger and no matter what I always find myself eating also I try one day with coffee and it helps but the thing is , should coffee be without sugar to fight hunger ??

  2. Coach Carlo,
    What a powerful video.

    I wasted so much money in so many wrong ways: low fat products,
    protein powders, supplements, isogenix and beyond.

    Thanks for creating these videos!
    They are very helpful.

  3. I agree that eating to much fruit can be bad but the odd banana or apple really wont hurt . I do low carb but feel better if ive eaten a banana 30 mins before exercising just gives me that boost.

  4. You should have 2.7 millions subscribers instead..i actually listened to the whole video without scrolling the comments during the video..its easy to listen to you.

  5. 3 months ago I was 312 pounds and decided to do the omad diet. I am currently 279 pounds. Every now and then I get hungry and have to have a second meal but it is still working. So far I havnt done any exercise either due to pain from being to heavy. I'm hoping to lose another 80 to 90 pounds. Thank you for spreading this knowledge because it does work

  6. This is a bunch of crap. Sorry dude, misleading and missing leading. The body isn’t a calorie counter? WTF does that mean. You eat too much (calories) your body stores it as fat. Another thing that got popular since 1977 is the meal size. People are just over eating. You can eat all the foods you mention but if you eat too much, your body is going to store it. The body doesn’t count calories is the stupidest thing I heard for someone trying to give advise.

  7. Japanese ate rice for thousands of years. Africans eat tubers for thousands of years. Now compare the obesity in America with Asia, and Africa. Walk in the streets of any west African countries, u hardly find obese people. Everyone eat ur traditional food.

  8. My favorite foods help me in my weight loss goals was spinach, kale, arugula, steal cut oats with barley and quinoa . I was 300 pounds back in February of this year now I’m 172 plus apple cider vinegar 💪🏾💯💯💯💯💯

  9. Artificial sugars trigger an insulin response, lol, total nonsense. If that were true, people would go hypoglycemic with nothing to buffer the insulin.

  10. This is such a great video especially your comments on fruit. I love apples, but with the high carb count in an apple, I found that I was gaining weight. I’ve now switched to berries and have since lost weight.

  11. This is one of the hardest things to explain to people who think what they eat is healthy, too many people rely on government to tell them what to eat when people just need to read the label, fewer whole ingredients is best. Simple as that!

  12. Breakfast cereal
    Protein bars and other bars
    Meal replacement shakes
    Fruit juice
    Plant based substitutes
    Diet soda
    Low fat diary and low calorie foods
    Artificial sweeteners
    Healthy whole grains

  13. okay, so i get the picture….you said that fruit is high in sugar – eat berries and avocados – trying living in South Africa that stuff is like buying diamonds – so therefore you have to go for a cheaper alternative – bananas , apples, pears, pineapples all high sugar content. Anything that is on the healthy option in South Africa is beyond expensive. I have gone on a mainly veggie diet and have lost 20 kilograms in a year and have maintained that weight thought this year. I have really enjoyed your video, sum good points. By the way i have also done and still do the intermittent fasting (which i am busying doing at the moment) more on the 16 hour one. You really feel great.

  14. Fruits have fiber, and vitamins and help replenish you after an 18 hour fast. Overall mental and physical health is more important than just weight loss. Fruits are fine as long as you eat them fiber and all at your eating window. Fasting for 18 hours minimum will keep your body's fat storage in check

  15. There are clinical studies that stevia does not increase glycemic response, therefore no insulin spike. Well thats what I searched so far, thats why it is recommended for diabetic patients.

  16. I really like you! you keep it real and truth full. I also want to thank you for not dis respecting people that choose the vegan lifestyle. Their is to much of that going on, also vice versa the same way and it is really sad. People need to focus on them selves and prove their lifestyle by example, people will notice and want to know more weather your a vegan, keto, carnivore or what ever. I used to work in a beef packing plant/ slaughter house and all the cattle that were in the feed lots ate nothing but grains while waiting to run up the stairway to heaven before entering the knocking box. That was sad to see also, but that is all grain is good for to fatten you up period so i avoid all grains. That is 100% truth, so great work and keep it up you have a new sub.

  17. I grew up in the 70s and 80s on breakfast cereal, Velveeta cheese, Wonder bread. Frozen vegetables, Oscar Meyer weenies, hamburger helper washed down with Kool Aid or Tang made with about a shovel full of sugar in a big pitcher or maybe some Tab. McDonald’s on the weekends if we were lucky. Of course there are always cookies, store-bought of course and a big plastic gallon bucket of ice cream in the freezer. I didn’t know a food that didn’t come in a box. It’s amazing I’m still here.

  18. True that if you eliminate all the things he is saying you will automatically make you lose weight but the truth is can you sustained it… It’s all about balance and eat in portion and exercise… This is the reason why so many people is overweight, we eliminate all this only to fall of the bandwagon and go binge eating… I say just cut back on your sugar intake, yes fruit is not good for you if you consume a large amount but to eliminate that is not a good idea, they provide other natural vitamins that helps the body in other way…

  19. So you are telling me that u don't crave sweet foods 🤔 I don't believe u, no sweetness no fruits?!?!?! U must have had alternatives

  20. Good content, but this isn't going to work on a long-term basis.
    The answer is as follows:
    1. While eating fill yourself with 1/3 rd food,1/3rd liquid and leave 1/3rd of your stomach for air and gas. This ways you will be eating everything but leaving eating while still hungry.
    2. Do not eat sitting at a table. It makes you eat too much by allowing your stomach to expand. Instead sit on the floor crosslegged, compressing your stomach.
    3. Only eat when really hungry. Don't follow the 3 meal a day schedule.
    4. Always skip breakfast, because you are really not hungry at the time.
    5. Do fasting for 2 days every week, without water. And for 30 days once every year from dawn to dusk.

    These 5 points are the key to sustainable good health and controlling your weight, throughout your life. Please follow them for your own betterment.

  21. I went from 80 kilogram to 54 kilogram eating a ketogenig diet consuming cola zero , cola light ,fun light and other aspartame filled drinks everyday. Not saying it's healthy in any way, shape or form but yes people can definitely lose weight consuming diet coke. I know for a fact.

  22. Thank god I don’t use all of these craps i only drink water a gallon a day and coconut water and green tea every day

  23. I do not eat these type of food and I don’t drink any fruit juices i only drink a gallon of water a day and I drink green tea and coconut water but I have to admit I use truvia but now I am going to cut out this truvia no more artificial sugar for me

  24. Human history is only less than 6000 years. Look at the Jewish calendar. We are in 2019 because our calendar runs from when Jesus was born or risen from the dead (not sure). Evolution is a lie. We all descended from Noah after God brought the flood. Noah was descended from Adam and Eve.

  25. Carlo, I love your channel. I watch a lot of fitness channels and your's if easy to understand and follow. Keep up the great work. You have a great gift and thank you for sharing and you are helping so many. thank you and God Bless you.

  26. All sweeteners are not the same in sugar free drinks. Sucralose does not spike my blood sugar, it does with many people. Erythritol, monk fruit and xylitol also doesn’t, therefor does not create an insulin response. I’ve tested them all

  27. I'm not a vegan but if you think beef patties is just beef, you're wrong. You taught me a lot about artificial sweeteners especially even Stevia.

  28. I love Sparkling Ice drinks! After listening to this, and the fact that I am on a weight loss journal, I’m stoping it right now, it has artificial sweetener!

  29. Not all artificial sweeteners trigger an insulin response i'm sorry but that's just not true. There is some studies showing that tasting something sweet will release a little insulin. However those studies were not consistent and state this isn't with everyone. And Stevia is not ARTIFICIAL Please be careful with wording before trying to educate the public.
