So, What’s all the rumor about Which 5 Foods To Never Eat and Why?
If you think that losing fat requires you to take …
- … Diet pills,
- … Eat packaged cardboard diet foods in child size portions,
- … Do exhausting exercise,
- … Starve or deprive yourself,
… This article is not for you!.. Especially if you enjoy doing these things to yourself.
Hi, Isabel De Los Rios here, I am the leading sertified nutritionist at the Beyond Diet club. Today I am going to teach you how to lose weight without doing the things above to your self.
That’s because they work against your body!
… I am also going to tell you about 5 foods that you are probably eating everyday because they are marketed to you as healthy!
These foods also work against your body!.. and, when you stop eating them, you can lose weight
- Naturally … a ‘an for a
- Long term
Before I became a certified nutrition blogger, I battled my weight for 7 brutal years. I was absolutely desperate to lose the fat that just kept piling on me, no matter what I did!
Before and After Picture of me. Flabby arms and legs on the left, Bright and shine on the right.
… and After 7 years of failed diets, I learned what I am about to teach you. Because when I stopped eating the foods that I am going to tell you about today, I shed 65 pounds.
About 25-30 pounds was belly fat, and the rest was an all the usual other places, my arms, my rear and my thighs.
That was 7 years ago and I haven’t regain the weight. I call that might Not-A-Diet, because I wasn’t hungry.
In fact I ate really good food and enjoyed my favorite treats … I didn’t count anything like
calories, fat grams. My skin cleared up, I had more energy and I was nicer to myself & other people.
I still eat this way because I love how it makes me feel. It’s delicious and it’s nourishing. Which is not what we think of diets,
… so believe me when I say,
- your struggles with your weight are Not Your Fault!
There is a lot of deliberate, misinformation floating around the internet about how to eat healthy and lose weight.
That’s because the BIG FOOD corporations make huge fortunes getting you to eat as much of their products as possible, especially the foods I am going to tell you about today.
… Then, the diet companies they own makes small fortunes from selling you weight loss strategies They Know Don’t Work!
Otherwise, they wouldn’t make money!
How I learned about those foods is kinda of embarrassing. When I began dieting, I wanted to keep 10 extra pounds from turning into 20. So I decided to try one of those low calorie prepackaged food diets.
I lost the fat all right and as soon I started eating real food again, I gained all that fat back + interest. By the time I stopped Yo-Yo dieting, I had rebounded my way all the way up to 205 pounds and I had paid about total of $17 000 of the privilege.
My last diet – I was desperate …
… Was supposed to be 30-Day juice cleanse.
I was miserable …
My family was miserable …
… the furniture had teeth marks in it and our pets were looking pretty tasty.
On day 8, I was driving by a very famous fast food restaurant and I can almost taste the french fries.
Before I could stop my self, I pulled into the parking lot and found myself standing in line at the counter.
Practically drooling … when a thought popped into my head …
If I chew these fries, just the fries no ketchup, just for the taste and spit them out. Those calories won’t count?
… It was the most completely horrifying moment of my life. I ended my juice cleanse right there on the spot with large fries, a bacon double cheese burger and a large strawberry milkshake.
Nothing ever tasted so good …
As you might imagine, I regained the weight so fast my head spun. And I realized that it had gotten pretty bad, because after 7 years of dieting and hundreds of pounds of rebound weight gain (and loss) topping out at 205 pounds I knew just 1 thing …
… If you ever need to gain weight – JUST DIET! Works great!
EVERY … SINGLE … TIME!
But then something happened that totally changed my life.
One day at work, my perfectly slender co-worker and I were chatting over lunch.
I remember it clearly: I was sipping a diet shake, and she was eating a full place of food. Suddenly and I am still not sure what made me say this, I asked her:
What’s your secret? How can you eat to much great food and not blow up like a blimp?
… I guess a had cought her of gard, but after a second she replied
I love to eat! So I just make sure I eat the right foods, in the right combinations, at the right time. I just don’t believe in dieting.
I blushed bright red, looked down at my diet shake, and quickly changed the subject.
At first I thought, it can’t be that easy! She’s gotta have a super fast metabolism, or work out for hours or just be a genetic freak!
… But what she said got me thinking?
So for the next few days, I took notes about exactly what she ate for breakfast and lunch, then fixed it for myself the next day.
And something incredible happened …
… After a week, I had to tighten the belt on my work pants – they were practically failing off!
Even better, I realized I was a lot less grouchy, and my skin was clearing up, too!
Once I’ve broke the code on how food really affected my body, I developed a simple, insanely effective plan.
The very first thing I did was to stop eating these five foods that practically force us to become fat, and started eating what I now knew, were the right foods in the right combinations at the right time.
And I shed 65 pounds in a lot less time than it took me to gain all of that weight.
Also it was much, much, much easier.
Because within weeks, I had more energy than I’d had in years and I had fewer and fewer aches and pains.
And the more weight fell off me the better I felt.
I went from being so heavy, I was out of breath climbing stairs or walking around the block, to learning to tango with my husband and hiking with our kids.
Pretty soon, I was shopping for a whole new wardrobe in a size 6.
I gave all my old clothes away, knowing I would never wear them again.
… I have to say … That Felt Good!
Especially the day I walked into the lingerie store and I … bought something that made both me and my husband smile …
Not long after that, I achieved another goal … becoming a nutritionist.
I immediately began working with people who were stuck in the Yo-Yo cycle of dieting … Just like I had been.
After 10 years of helping people lose weight, I know not-eating these foods works for almost everyone.
Of course we gain-and-lose weight differently, depending on whether we’re male or female, our age and activity levels, even whether we’ve had children or our genetics.
But these five particular foods practically force the human body to produce fat-storing and appetite hormones …
… Some of us just get lucky and produce less of them and
… many of us aren’t that lucky.
Even worse, the damage these foods do to you doesn’t end with your weight, your waist line, and your self esteem.
These foods can also dramatically increase your risk of serious illnesses!
So you should avoid eating these 5 foods regardless or your physical condition. And not-eating these foods will work for you even if you only not eat a few of them.
You don’t have to plunge into some kind of super-perfect diet to begin seeing encouraging progress in a matter of days.
I have to be 100% honest and warn you: Everyone is different!
But I hear all the time from people who’ve dropped a few pounds or taken in their belts a hole and sometimes two …
… that their skin is clearing up and they have more energy because they’re feeding their muscles and not their fat.
So eliminate any and all distractions, and listen up.
You can take notes if you want to, because I absolutely, and passionately believe in your right to have the body, nature intended you to have …
- Healthy and …
You probably have all the answers you need to lose your unwanted fat right in your own kitchen.
All you need to know is what eating healthy really is, because it’s not what most people think it is.
It’s not about “diet” health bars, or eating berries, celery, and carrots.
When you consume the right amount of carbs with the right amount of proteins, the fat will burn off naturally.
It’s that simple!
Now, I’m betting three of these five foods will shock you, like they did me. But let me start with one that isn’t a food, it’s actually a drink.
A drink you’ve been told over and over “How healthy it is for you.”
It’s concentrated orange juice.
Have you ever seen those commercials that tell you should starting your day with a big glass of concentrated orange juice is really a good idea?
- The truth is it’s probably one of the worst things you can do to your body.
… And it’s not just ‘Ojay
Most concentrated fruit juices can cause problems around the waistline.
These include concentrated juices like cranberry juice, apple juice and other concentrated fruit juices.
You might be wondering how is this possible? Isn’t fruit good for you?
Well … I knew the problem wasn’t the fruit, so I discovered how fruits are concentrated into juice!
You see, many companies remove the fiber and other nutritious elements out of the fruit during the “concentrating” progress.
The fiber in fruit normally reduces the spike in blood sugar. With the fiber taken out, you are essentially left with sugar water.
And when your blood sugar is too high, it puts your body in fat-storing mode. Essentially telling your body to store anything you eat, as fat.
Blood sugar levels are directly related to insulin levels. Insulin is also known as your fat-storing hormone. This hormonal imbalance with insulin can cause weight gain because of the raised blood sugar levels.
Most concentrated fruit juices have just as much, or even more sugar than soda!
Contrary to what commercials tell you, starting your day with a big glass of concentrated juice is a really bad decision!
The excess sugar can spike your blood sugar and put your body in fat-storing mode. Excess sugar in our diet is probably the number one thing to be careful of. And it’s not just concentrated juice you have to worry about. A lot of processed foods have excess sugar in them. And it’s disguised in scientific sounding names like:
- High fructose corn syrup
- Fruit juice concentrate like I just mentioned
Excess sugar in your diet can cause your blood sugar levels to spike, which leads to an insulin overload, and puts your body in fat-storing mode.
The food in drug administration has warned that there are over 50 different Known Poisons and Toxins substances in the Average American Grocery Cart!
These chemicals combined can cause hundreds of different diseases and can even be fatal in some cases.
Now, the second fat-storing food can also increase your weight, but it also has far more serious health risks.
Fat-storing food number 2 is Margarine
Like many oils and spreads, most margarines contain trans fat. Trans fats are formed when hydrogens are added to make it solid and less likely to spoil. It’s added to prolong shelf life, but ingesting these trans fats can increase the risk for cardiovascular disease as well as weight gain.
Cardiovascular disease is on the rise with heart disease being the number one killer in America as worldwide too.
Trans fats are also been proven to increase your LDL levels which is commonly know as bad cholesterol. While at the same time wiping out your HDL levels or your good cholesterol.
So it’s a double whammy on your body!
- It can cause you to gain weight, wipe out your good cholesterol, increase your good cholesterol by building up plaque in your arteries, and do more harm than good!
As a certified nutritionist for the Beyond Diet club, I teach people to adjust what they’re eating to more healthy alternatives, like butter instead of margarine.
- Butter has fat in it too, but it’s a saturated fat that your body can burn for fuel instead of building up plaque in your arteries, like trans fats can do.
You’ll start eating foods that don’t wreak havoc on your hormones, your arteries, or your blood sugar levels and Your body will immediately thank you as it sheds inches and melts the extra pounds away … (You’ll learn more about that in a minute)
Next let’s get to fat-storing food number 3
… Which was quite a shock for me!
It’s Whole Wheat Bread. Are you surprised? – I was too!
It’s not just whole wheat bread either, It’s other breads, pastas, and other “comfort foods” that all add up to making it very hard for you to get lean and healthy.
Comfort foods are usually those “high carb” meals we all love.
Many comfort foods include apple pie, cakes, muffins, pasta’s and pizza.
I knew that high carb comfort foods can make you fat.
But If you are like me, you love these foods and you don’t want to give them up.
- Well, as it turns out, you don’t have to.
My own problems losing weight are what led me to become a certified nutritionist.
I could never seem to get rid of those extra 20 to 30 pounds of belly fat. I stopped eating the sweets and was eating healthier. And I would even exercise … which helped lose some of the belly fat …
… But it always came back when I couldn’t continue my routine because my life just got too busy again …
There’s a saying in the fitness industry that
‘You can’t exercise your way out of poor nutrition.’
What that means is that no amount of exercise will help you, if you’re not eating nutrient-dense food that your body needs to metabolize.
And I always thought my weight had a lot to do with the carbs I was eating …
But the real key was understanding how my body metabolizes these carbohydrates, and what causes these cravings in the first place!
When carbs are combined with the right amount of other foods, like proteins, it doesn’t raise your blood sugar levels and puts your body in fat-storing mode.
You see, there are 2 kinds of carbs:
Low carbs, which are your greens, most veggies and some fruits.
And then there’s high carbs, the ones I’d love and didn’t want to give up. Things like pasta, bread, sweets and even beer and wine. And when you eat them by themselves, they can cause you to gain weight.
Before I became an nutritionist, here is what my family and I would eat on a typically day.
- pancakes for breakfast,
- burger for lunch, and
- chicken for dinner
But the problem with these meals is that they don’t have the right ratio of high carbs and low carbs to protein.
