4 Healthy Diet Foods That Can Increase Fat Storage (unless you follow these simple rules)


Hey, hey, everybody. Shaun Hadsall here, the owner
and founder of getleanin12.com. And inside this
short fat loss video, I’m going to
introduce you to four wildly popular healthy foods
that can increase fat storage. And this is a common mistake. Whenever I review a food
journal of a local client that I work with, they usually
are abusing these four foods. And as a result, it ends
up taking your body out of a calorie deficit. So even though
they’re healthy, you have to monitor
your portion sizes very carefully for a
few reasons that I’m going to share with you. Now those four foods are–
the first one is nuts. The second one is peanut butter. The third one is cheese. And the fourth one is the
wildly popular yogurt. So let’s talk about why all
four of these healthy diet foods can potentially make you
store more belly fat. So the first thing that
you need to understand is that when you look at
a label on nuts, peanut butter, and cheese and
you analyze the label– most people think that these
three foods are protein when in reality, they’re really
friendly fats, because when you look at the label, typically,
on nuts and peanut butter, you’re going to see almost three
times– at least two to three times as much fat grams
as you are protein grams. So although there’s
a small amount of protein in nuts and peanut
butter and even cheese, it’s mostly friendly fats. It’s the same thing with cheese. When you look at the
label of a cheese, you’re going to see the fat
content is going to be more than the protein content. So not only that, especially
in the nuts and peanut butter, it’s incomplete protein, because
it doesn’t contain all nine essential amino acids. Now that’s not
necessarily a bad thing. But all the research
and published science behind protein intake is done
on complete animal proteins, not incomplete proteins. So nuts, peanut
butter, and cheeses are mostly friendly
fats and not protein. And the reason why they
can make you fatter is because fats yield
over double the calories as carbs and protein. So for every carb
and protein gram you eat, it only yields
4 calories per gram. For every gram of fat you eat,
it yields 9 calories per gram. So it’s very easy
to abuse the portion sizes of nuts and
peanut butter and cheese and take your body out
of a calorie deficit. So although these
are healthy foods, you want to monitor your
portion sizes very carefully. You want to use raw nuts
and raw nut butters, whether it’s peanut
butter or almond butter. And you want to use
raw, grass-fed cheese. And you want to
use small amounts– so a handful of nuts,
a tablespoon or two of peanut butter, a small
amount of cheese– a sprinkle, a couple
ounces, not a lot. So although these foods are
very, very healthy for you, you need to monitor your
portion sizes very carefully. Now yogurt brings the
same problem, just in a different way. If you look at a tub– a
small tub, a single serving size of one small tub
of fat-free yogurt, you’re typically going to
find about 42 grams of sugar. If you divide 6 into
42, that equals 7. That’s 7 teaspoons of
sugar dumped into that one little tub of yogurt. That’s an insulin-spiking,
fat-storing nightmare. Now most people will go,
that’s OK, I buy sugar-free. Well, it’s going to be
an OK diet food for you. But sugar-free
yogurt– this typically has artificial sweeteners, and
it’s loaded with chemicals. Now here’s the big myth about
most over-the-counter yogurts– most of them don’t have the
probiotics that you need, because they are destroyed
when the food is processed. So that’s why you want to
always try to find raw dairy. Like, for example, people
who are lactose intolerant, if they eat raw,
grass-fed cheese, they’ll actually
get the enzymes they need to digest the lactose. So it can actually improve
their lactose intolerance. So with yogurt,
you want to stick with Greek, non-flavored,
organic yogurt as much as possible. Stay away from sugar-free. And I even recommend that
you stay away from fat-free, obviously, because that’s
where the sugar’s at. So these are the reasons
why these four healthy foods can increase fat storage. You can still include
them in your diet. Just make the right
choices, and make sure you monitor your
portion sizes very carefully. So thanks for watching this. If you got something out of

called “The Over 40 Stubborn Fat Sequence,” you’re
going to be introduced to a 12-minute workout
that is specifically designed for the hormonal
condition of people over 35 years old. So if you’re in your
40s, 50s, or 60s, this report is going to show you
why you must move differently than younger people. Workout routines like
P90X, CrossFit, Insanity– these are amazing workouts for
fat loss and for muscle gains. But they’re designed
for younger people, and they can actually be
more harmful to people over 35 years old because of
the rapidly declining fat loss hormones. And these 12-minute
metabolic tricks are going to show you how you
can reactivate those declining fat loss hormones, elevate your
metabolism for up to two days after one 12-minute session. And when it’s done properly,
the published science and the research shows it can
increase growth hormone levels 450% to 700%. So thanks for watching
this, and keep going strong.
