what’s up guys jeff cavaliere
00:07
athleanx.com today we’re going to go
00:09
over those foods that you think are
00:11
healthy and I’m going to show you today
00:12
are actually making you fat
00:14
we call them tract foods Jesse could you
00:18
get through one video without your
00:19
infatuation for Star Wars showing itself
00:21
absolutely not you’re gonna be see more
00:26
in him in this video but we’re gonna go
00:27
through one by one eight of these trap
00:29
foods here so hopefully you’re better
00:31
educated as to why you need to avoid
00:33
them once and for all
00:42
one that I actually picked on a little
00:44
bit in a recent video in a different
00:45
form as an avocado and now here in all
00:47
this glory as guacamole look guys
00:50
there’s nobody that realizes the
00:51
benefits of healthy fats more than me
00:52
and knows that guacamole is a great
00:55
source of that however whoever stopped
00:57
at a tablespoon of guacamole because
00:59
that has 40 calories in it but what we
01:01
do is of course we go overboard and the
01:04
average American eats 10 to 12
01:06
tablespoons of guacamole every time they
01:08
eat it now to mention the fact that
01:09
they’re usually scooping it all up while
01:11
all these chips over here and before you
01:13
start telling me Jeff you’re off base
01:15
because this food right here these
01:17
healthy fats they don’t spike insulin so
01:18
they can’t make you fat tell that to the
01:20
person that just consumed ten thousand
01:22
calories today in fat it goes back to
01:24
the law of thermodynamics guys science
01:26
never changes despite the fact of what
01:28
your pubmed article just told you guys
01:37
if you ever had a sudden craving for a
01:39
certain food I’m talking about the real
01:42
version of it right there like the real
01:44
chocolate chip cookie or the blueberry
01:46
muffin or even the potato chips well
01:49
don’t worry you can satisfy that craving
01:51
without the guilt that comes from these
01:53
chemically engineered over processed
01:55
carcinogenic additive rich light reduced
01:58
fat versions now oh by the way usually
02:00
have almost 80% of the calories of the
02:03
original better yet why don’t you just
02:04
skip it all together and out for a
02:06
better food choice than either of these
02:08
and at the same time erase all those
02:10
chemical question marks that usually
02:12
come from having these light versions
02:22
okay this next one pains me to say it
02:24
because this was one of my all-time
02:25
favorite foods growing up but you’re
02:27
gonna figure out why fast and that is
02:29
baked beans now you’re probably saying
02:31
but I thought beans were healthy and
02:33
there are a lot of great beans you got
02:35
navy beans pinto beans lima beans black
02:38
beans jelly bean
02:40
oh wait that’s chilly that’s Jesse’s
02:42
favorite jelly beans stay away from the
02:44
jelly beans but the beans themselves are
02:45
a great source of protein complex
02:48
carbohydrates fiber they’ve got all the
02:50
makings of something good however we
02:52
screw it up in the preparation anybody
02:54
that’s ever had refried beans can tell
02:56
you that right away but baked beans
02:57
there’s no less of a problem because of
02:59
all the sugar that there is in a single
03:02
serving here if you have a cup of baked
03:03
beans you’re looking at 26 grams of
03:06
sugar almost as much as in a can of soda
03:08
so now you see why I love these things
03:11
so much and if you are too you got to do
03:13
something about it you probably got to
03:14
switch to one of those more plain
03:16
versions preparing a lot more simply if
03:18
you want to watch your waistline in the
03:19
process all right now what could be more
03:32
wholesome than a cup of yogurt with some
03:34
nice fresh fruit at the bottom
03:36
unfortunately a whole hell of a lot of
03:38
things you see because this right here
03:40
is my number one trap food because it
03:43
just seems so darn healthy and a lot of
03:45
us fall for it the problem is this this
03:48
fruit can be found bathing in the bottom
03:50
of your cup of calories in a special
03:51
mixture of corn syrup sugar and oh yeah
03:54
maybe just a little bit of actual fruit
03:56
juice you could have to eat just the top
03:58
part if you want to but why even bother
04:00
in the first place just buy some
04:02
unsweetened yogurt and put it in your
04:03
own holy cow fresh fruit at the bottom I
04:06
know it’s a novel concept but the fact
04:08
is it’s a lot better way to protect your
04:10
waistline in the long run
04:15
I don’t know what it is about the word
04:22
granola but it just even sounds healthy
04:24
right it sounds like grains for crying
04:27
out loud but this is probably the
04:28
biggest breakfast sin that you’re making
04:30
because of all the high sugars that are
04:33
being thrown into this just to hold all
04:35
that together now you might be arguing
04:37
but I make it on my own so I don’t have
04:39
all that sugar
04:39
it doesn’t matter guys this is by no
04:41
means is a low calorie choice if you’re
04:43
trying to lose weight
04:45
you’re not going low calorie here you’ve
04:47
got coconut
04:48
you’ve got nuts you’ve got the oils in
04:49
there you’ve got raisins all these
04:51
things are not going to very calorie
04:54
dense foods so what I’m gonna tell you
04:55
instead is to opt for oatmeal and
04:57
instead take a little bit of this
04:59
granola and sprinkle it on the top just
05:01
for flavor it’s gonna give you a much
05:02
smarter option here for breakfast and
05:04
it’s going to help you in the long run
05:06
for keeping that weight down alright so
05:15
you’re gonna die in light tonight will
05:17
do me a favor and stay away from these
05:18
carb loaded pseudo protein belly bombs
05:20
better known as sushi you see with just
05:23
a sliver of actual fish in here we’re
05:25
talking about only 50% of the total
05:27
calories coming in the form of protein
05:28
and more sticky rice than you can
05:30
actually deal with you can build a small
05:32
Hut with one for crying out loud the
05:34
fact of the matter is they’re so easily
05:36
eaten and a single roll can have up to
05:38
500 calories for just a 6 piece roll
05:40
tell me how many guys limit themselves
05:42
to just 6 pieces throw in the added
05:44
sodium IV drip that you’re getting from
05:46
that low salt soy sauce and your healthy
05:48
meal actually just made a Big Mac look
05:51
like beans and sprouts okay if you’re
05:59
still attached to your fruit juice right
06:01
here maybe even drinking it from a sippy
06:03
cup I’m not going to judge you but I am
06:04
going to recommend that you cut back
06:06
because what you’re doing to your blood
06:08
sugar and insulin levels is pretty much
06:10
putting them on the same ride as let’s
06:12
say the stock market with all the spikes
06:13
in the crashes and the big problem here
06:16
is that they’re liquid calories they’re
06:18
far too easy to consume them right you
06:20
just take the a sip put it down put it
06:23
back put it down it’s too damn easy but
06:25
what you want to do is actually try to
06:27
start getting that from
06:29
through itself right the actual
06:30
consumption of the fruit in solid form
06:32
makes you number one more aware of the
06:34
food that you’re eating and number two
06:36
it actually brings along some of that
06:37
healthy fiber that you’re missing out on
06:39
by relying on the juice and before you
06:41
even question how bad these actually are
06:43
for you just do me one favor go and
06:45
compare a bottle of grape juice and a
06:48
bottle of soda and you’ll probably be
06:49
surprised that there are a lot more
06:50
Siller than you thought
07:01
alright this next one is near and dear
07:03
to me because I made this mistake and
07:05
hopefully I’m gonna help you to avoid it
07:06
now to deli meats avoid them at all
07:09
costs you see when I first started
07:11
training I wanted to get more protein in
07:13
my diet so I ran to the local deli and I
07:15
started ordering my roast beef my turkey
07:17
my chicken the thing is I didn’t realize
07:19
that I was also getting with these a lot
07:22
of additives fillers chemicals sodium I
07:25
probably should have clued in when I was
07:27
looking at that perfectly round chicken
07:29
breast I mean because I don’t think I’ve
07:30
ever seen one of those in real life so
07:32
you have to realize guys that when they
07:35
make these things they compile them and
07:37
they mix them all up and they form that
07:39
and see these little balls full of all
07:41
those things I just told you about and
07:42
if you probably drop one the damn thing
07:44
would probably bounce so what I’m gonna
07:46
recommend instead is to avoid this fake
07:49
chicken or thicken as I call it and out
07:51
for the real deal
07:52
go get real chicken breasts go get real
07:54
turkey breasts and if you don’t have the
07:56
time to make it yourself I already made
07:58
a video on this great way that you could
07:59
actually go to the catering counter at
08:01
your local grocery store and order all
08:04
this in bulk and then you have it you
08:06
could freeze it you can use it as you go
08:08
but do me a favor and avoid the deli
08:09
meats opt for the real deal instead whoa
08:16
whoa so there you have it guys there’s
08:19
