Foods you thought were healthy but actually AREN’T


I had to get that out, I got a lot
of tension because this has been weighing me down no pun intended for a
long time and that is these healthy foods are not healthy foods yet they say
they are, if that makes sense so stay tuned sit tight because on this episode of
lean living I’m gonna show you four of the healthiest foods out there that are
actually unhealthy for us and not helping your weight loss not helping
your overall well-being and you are never ever ever gonna want to have these
again so sit tight cuz it’s time to get lean welcome back to a brand new episode of
lean living I’m excited now I’ve got it off my chest we’re getting this video
done I’m really excited to share it with you because I promise you you’re never
ever ever gonna want to have these healthy foods again because the matter
of fact is they just aren’t healthy they are not good for us we have been
misinformed by these companies by the media and we’re gonna put an end to it
right now on this episode but before I dive into these products and trust me
you do not want to miss any one of these make sure you subscribe to the channel
and give me a big thumbs up if you like this episode as well as comment share
with your friends let’s spread the leanness and let me know what you want
to see more of got tons of episodes tons bubbling up in my mind we’re gonna dive
straight in this episode ding ding ding the number one food that is marketed as
healthy but in reality is extremely unhealthy is green juice! take a look at
this one it’s called the green machine naked I am sure you’ve heard of it
massive company, not healthy at all! We’re gonna get rid of it so 2 is its counterpart the fruit
smoothie the mighty mango sounds healthy sounds lean the reality is these are
terrible for us I’m going to tell you why they are filled with sugar so much so that this mighty mango right here this healthy fruit smoothie has more
sugar than a large bottle of Coca Cola that is insane so when you think you
were starting your day I’m gonna have one of those naked healthy smoothies the
reality is you may as well start your day with a large can of coca-cola and I
know what you’re thinking well Phil it’s fruit it’s healthy it’s good for us
the reality is sugar is sugar when you’re having that much sugar that is
not healthy for anyone it is not healthy for your energy levels it is not healthy
for your weight-loss journey and it is overall not good for your brain because
sugar is addictive and that is why they pack these green juices fruit smoothies
with so much sugar they want you feeling satisfied they want you coming back for
more because sugar again is so addictive your brain starts bubbling it gets
excited and it wants another smoothie day after day after day and you are
going to start piling on weight and you’re also going to see a huge
significant decrease in your energy levels that is because your blood sugar
level is gonna spike and then you’re gonna come right down because of all
that sugar so that is why I stay so far away from these juices and don’t feel
bad I used to drink these too until I started understanding the reality of the
situation so these are no longer ever something I will have but there is good
news I promise you not all green juices are bad it’s just understanding what to
look for I just bought a great green juice from the local store around the
corner it is actually a green juice and you can see by looking at the label
the sugar content is under 10 grams and it also has all the ingredients listed
on there so I make sure I always check the ingredient list to see that there’s
no apples there’s no pears there’s no mangoes
there are no super sugary fruits and instead I look for tons and tons of
green leafy veg in that green juice, yes it won’t taste sweet but it is so good for you
the idea of a green healthy juice is to be healthy so you just get it in you
you’re gonna get tons and tons of nutrients in one green drink and you
will be providing your body the best chance to be successful on your
weight-loss journey let me know in the comments below if you have ever fallen
victim to those naked juices product number two this is equally being
weighing me down and that is granola! it is not healthy! we’re getting it out there I’m gonna
tell you right now why it is packed filled with carbohydrates which isn’t
necessarily a bad thing but it is when it’s containing sugar and it’s really
high in calories just a little bit of granola can add up to 200 to 300
calories in your breakfast and there’s very very little nutrients in that so
that is not good for us it’s all about ensuring those calories are going to
benefit our body we want nutritious healthy fueling energizing calories that
are going to allow us to smash our day instead granola just adds a whole bunch
more calories it’s not good for us that is going out of the breakfast which
brings me to healthy but very unhealthy food number three this one is a huge pet
peeve goes along great with granola I’m told is yogurt this actually made me
angry in the story high in protein marketed is high in protein little tubs of yogurt
so anyone walking by would say you know what that is going to be good for
me I’m gonna get my protein I’m gonna feel great I’m gonna start my day smashing it
well just one little tub, look at I think Hudson my son who’s two years old
could eat about 20 of these for breakfast one of these little tubs has
100 calories 13 grams of carbs 10 of which are from sugar probably gonna have
all four of these right at least three 300 calories then you’re topping it with
granola you are already at a 400 – 600 calorie breakfast, just at the beginning of your day and you’ve
already had enough sugar for an average person’s diet just starting off in your
day and if you make matters even worse unknowingly with the smoothie or a green
juice well you’re just off the charts and that is going to
a huge huge reason why you are not feeling as good as you should be feeling
and not succeeding on your weight journey so bear that in mind these are
all gone we’re getting rid of them no more never again but don’t worry there
is good news at the end of this video I promise you very good news we’re going
into the last healthy but unhealthy food out there this one again as a former
professional athlete really irks me not anyone’s fault at all for thinking this
one’s healthy it is marketed as one of the best drinks for anyone out there and
that is Gatorade Gatorade yes the drink with the magical electrolytes and also
filled with sugar that we are told is for everyone now reality is Gatorade was
made for very intense high level athletes who were doing bouts of
exercise for over an hour now the vast majority of us do not do intense
exercise for over an hour they’re just a glorified can of coca-cola that is what
the equivalent is they’re filled with sugar yes they have some electrolytes
but again the intensity in our exercise is not high enough to justify drinking
one of these if you are training for a marathon or you’re training really
intense for over an hour go ahead have some Gatorade make sure you’re not
having a ton because again it is filled with sugar however you want to get those
electrolytes in but if you’re like me and the vast majority avoid these drinks
at all costs do not go for them go for the zero sugar option make sure you read
the label be aware and just simply cut these ones out unnecessary calories in
your diet that are not going to benefit you
going to make your weight-loss journey that much more difficult oh we got
through all four there I’m proud those are four of the
healthiest food and drink products out there that really aren’t healthy and I
really really think you guys need to cut them out the benefits are far outweighed
by the negatives of consuming these products and again don’t buy into how
they’re marketed understand that reading the label and the sugar content and the
ingredient list is so important then you can start seeing what all these products
truly are that’s the most important thing and that’s why I wanted to share
this video with you I wanted to educate you guys on some of the four biggest
misconceptions as well as hopefully teach you guys what to start looking for
when you are looking at healthy food so with that mind I hope this video helped
