Complex carbohydrates like oats are minimally processed and high in fiber and nutrients, while refined carbohydrates like sugary cereal are highly processed and low in fiber and nutrients. Fiber keeps bowel movements regular, regulates blood sugar levels and slows digestion. Complex carbohydrates like oats are minimally processed and high in fiber and nutrients, while refined carbohydrates like sugary cereal are highly processed and low in fiber and nutrients. Fiber keeps bowel movements regular, regulates blood sugar levels and slows digestion (making us feel fuller for longer).

Consider ditching cereal for warm, gooey oatmeal. Oatmeal will keep you feeling fuller longer, suggests a study in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition. Participants were served 250 calories of cereal or oatmeal with 113 calories of milk. You just ate a modest helping of southwestern chicken casserole. Hooray for healthy eating — you’re feeling pretty satisfied from this high-fiber.

Here are my top 10 foods that’ll keep you feeling fuller, for longer: Dill pickles & fermented vegies Not only are they totally delicious and so great for gut health but pickled and fermented vegies have a large water bulk so you can eat quite a lot of them and really fill up with very few calories. “It’s not a myth or fabrication,” Megan Wolf, (MS, RD) registered dietitian and owner of Megan Wolf Nutrition, says. “Some foods really do help to keep us satisfied and feeling full much better than others. Foods containing fibre, protein and healthy fats delay stomach-emptying, which is why you feel fuller and more satisfied from them.”.

Protein Powders. Protein does keep you fuller for longer and does aid the build up of muscle, so a fantastic addition to our weight loss diet. ‘I love That Protein Bliss Brown Rice Powder. An eating plan with foods that fill you up and stop you feeling hungry. Simply chose one each of our filling breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks from the choices given and have an extra 300ml skimmed milk for drinks every day.

EAT MORE non-starchy vegetables like asparagus, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, celery, cucumbers, tomatoes and winter squash. TIP: Start your meal with a bowl of broth-based soup or low-calorie leafy green salad to fill up on fewer calories. Turn to non-starchy vegetables when you get the munchies. Fill up on Fiber. The best way to avoid getting over-hungry is to eat every 3-4 hrs – three small meals with a couple of healthy snacks in between is perfect.

Protein-rich snacks (like a yogurt or a boiled egg) or fibre-rich snacks (such as oatcakes or hummus with crudités) are the.

With the exception of the olestra studies, other-studies have rarely used foods made with fat substitutes; instead they have provided low-fat food replacements, such as skim milk or reduced the consumption of high-fat foods like butter or margarine.

Fiber, a type of carbohydrate that helps give certain foods their bulk and that can’t be digested by the body, helps you stay fuller longer.

Processed foods such as bran muffins, rice cakes or breakfast cereals that are perceived to be high in fiber, and therefore “healthy”, are deceiving because they contain the wrong kind of fiber, called insoluble fiber.

That steady trickle of glucose—along with the extra fiber many low-glycemic foods tend to have inside them—also leaves you feeling fuller longer during the day, so you don’t end up eating more calories than your body actually needs.

Then there is the “less fat, more carbs” message that has been incorrectly translated into sweet, kcal-dense, low-fiber carbohydrate foods, so the low-fat diet has become a high-calorie, processed-carbohydrate diet.

  • Shout out to Chrissy Teigen for the bomb burger recipe used in this video. Shout out to Nat for making it. Shout out to me for eating it.

  • I love all the science u put in your videos, not like many utubers, just talking about their experienxies and make it seem like the general

  • All food is good food! You are supplying your body with calories that help sustain life! And while a good choice might now be nourishing for your body; it could be nourishing for your soul. Highly highly highly recommend everyone checks out intuitive eating. It ties directly into several points made in this video; and it’s a game changer.

  • Hell yeah, Abby! I’m not even done with the video but I’m so pumped (and grateful) that you included the bit about ending calorie tracking during stressful periods of life. Calorie tracking itself can be a huge stressor on the mind AND the body and I feel like this issue doesn’t get addressed nearly enough. I also stopped tracking calories after years of putting myself under scrutiny for going over my numbers one day (which meant I’d have to reduce calories even further on another day to make up for it). Bleh! During that time I did learn a lot about the food that I put in my body and its effects on different areas of my health, but overall, I’m much happier (and healthier!!) now that I’ve ended the calorie counting battle with myself.

    Thank you!

  • As someone who has disordered eating, Eating less than 100 cals and walking for 40 min the whole week, then binging on sunday, I figure it’d be hard to get into healthy eating habits without gaining all the weight I’ve lost. This video kinda prepared my future mindset once I figure out how to build healthy eating habits and finally have a better relationship with food

  • I love you program…but the food today is cloned and the water have flouride, GMO.Aspertine.monosodio glutamate. Meet glue. Pesticides. Preservatives etc. You know we don’t have $500 or 300 to get a program the works
    My ancestors was eating so healthy and natural but conquistador came and change everything. Is easy now to say to reverse the bad habits, my grand mother used aluminum cups they told them plastics was better….now they billioners and now plastic is bad and is killing humans animals and the planet.
    We need people powerful like you to stand for what’s right.. thank you for what you doing….

  • You have to do what is right for you and eating LOTS of vegetables, fruits is not good for me. LEAN protein? People still believe that. This from last year so maybe that guy learned something by now. It seems all these kinds of videos made by young people who have not had much in way of health issues and can just spew whatever sounds good.

  • I’ve been trying to workout a lot more with all of my extra time but I have such a problem with food that I’ve still gained 10 pounds since March ��

  • I tried to make my own diet, but it didn’t work. I went to Next Level Diet and let them create diet plan for me. I am delighted with the result

  • I would have set up failure if I would have eating things that I love like burgers and pizza through my weight loss journey.
    I previously lost 50 pounds without 3 months then regained that weight 2 years later.
    I’m now down 30 lbs and I’ll making sure that never happens again. I don’t shake myself by eating one burger or “bad food” when I’m with family or friends.

  • He’s so right! When I ‘slip up’ and eat something that isn’t so healthy like a burger or something, I just keep eating more and more because I feel like I’ve already failed.

  • What can I do if im trying to gain weight?�� Instead of eating constantly cause Im not sure I should burn too many calories till I gain some more weight, I suffered an ED for a long Time and im in recovery ✨

  • I make a rly lot of exercise just because i fucking hate vegetables, i can’t eat them, i find them gross, idk why, i even puke sometimes if i eat them, so i try not to eat a lot and obviosly not to only eat “junk food” but fr the only vegetable i could eat its a fucking cucumber

  • I got resistance bands on the way from amazon. Until then I do bodyweight workouts to hold me over. As far as my diet I’ve been alternating between 3 weeks of OMAD in a calorie deficit and 2 weeks at maintenance eating 3xs a day. So far it’s been totally beneficial for my weight loss. I even feel my body change.

  • “1 in 3 people that you knoe will die from cancer” I am no expert, but what I know is that Cancer is something that is mostly unrelated with what you eat, even 100% healthy people with a balanced diet can get Cancer

  • Right noe, in the lockdown, after not even SEEING junk food for more than three months… i have started to like every single thing at home. Less spicy, less oily and yet it fullfills me now.

  • Better than Good and Bad… food and food-stuff. Keeping it real, some items are hardly digestible and offer Zero nutrients. We should just agree to call such Items something else entirely. And they can be the Best Little Items.

  • What if you just stop being sad? What if you just stop being fat/skinny? What If you just…

    For someone who literally talked about mental health for this video, telling ppl to JUST is fucking ridiculous and sad

  • Basically you mean to say we must eat variety of vegetable, meat and fruits every day to keep our body full of every required nutrients. That will automatically keep our body in shape and perfect weight.

    I already did it and it worked. Thanx.

  • Hey MattI’ve only just discovered your channel. Like always I seem to be late to the party, but I’m happy to have found you. Kudos and thank you!

  • The bowl thing really helped me. I used to eat my breakfast in a bug ikea bowl and basically overeating. I switched on a significantly smaller bowl that almost feels up with the yogurt grams i need eat for breakfast, and that helped me a lot to realize that i am full with the portion i am supposed fo eat

  • Actually in case of milk it is not true. Source: I myself eat lots of diary food everyday (above 600g) and I feel great. It is packed in lots of nutrients and has lots of protein and is tasty. Of course everyone has different body so for someone else results may vary in case of amount of diary you can eat or if you even can digest it.

  • Eat whatever you want but not too much. Too much of everything is not good. Too much healthy food makes food boring and you feel empty, too much unhealthy food leads to overweight and other many problems. Just balance it all. Maybe two times unhealthy food in a week while the rest keep it healthy. Or even better, if you like unhealthy food, just keep your portion small if you’re gonna have it more than two times a week, but you need to work out to keep your body still and not get fat.

  • I’m sorry but if you feel guilty about eating burger you should try to get enough self control so you don’t want to eat burgers

    If anyone answering is being a jerk i’ll just delete

  • I`ve been using this eyesight development solution “Tοsazο Zuzo” (Google it) for nearly 30 days and so far my vision has been enhancing. I don`t understand how much better the ultimate result is going to be, but all I could say is my eye sight keeps getting better per week. My eyesight started to obtain a little better right after a few days utilizing this item..

  • Always impressed with the music and sound in your videos. Your skill as a documentary filmmaker really shows! Do you usually cut your audio in Premiere or do you mix separately?

  • I have started off having problems with my vision since I was 40. I kept searching for treatment options for affected eyesight and I encounter the eyesight improvement procedure “Tοsazο Zuzo” (Google it). That was Two months ago and I started to notice warning signs of development right after fourteen days. It really helps developing my reading…

  • I appreciate that you do these videos. My teacher actually taught us one of these myths (that you burn more calories by increasing the frequency of eating) as a part of our nutrition unit and some of the stuff we learn is dated in that class and this is just another thing we’ve learned that isn’t the best information.

  • The sad thing is that the food in US packed with so much unhealthy stabilizers and processed stuff:( It is so much harder to find relatively healthy foods since like 80% of products in a regular supermarkt have some form of sugar in them.

  • This is why I’m careful with who I follow on IG and youtube. I’ve found myself following more “home based” IG PTs and less of those that live by going to the gym and using that squat rack.

  • Carrots helping your eyes is a World War II propaganda cover story to hide radar. Obviously this was a very successful campaign if it is still being a topic of interest.

  • What are some of the myths about diets that you’ve succumb to in the past?

    Watch the free WildFit masterclass here and learn more >>

  • But there are some people like women who have hormonal imbalance and suffers from PCOS problem in that case we need to avoid lots of good foods so how can one eat all plus can anyone suggest me plus I need help ��

  • I have a sincere question.

    Myth or Fact: Do you retain/gain weight if you naturally eat a very low calorie diet?

    I do not get hungry enough to eat even close to 2,000cal as a 155lb woman, even when I’m active, so on a daily basis I usually eat a pretty decent calorie deficit. However, I tend to not lose weight, or fat, and I’m not sure what to do differently? Because thinking of eating more makes me feel sick.

  • This is honestly the most helpful and reasonable fitness tips/guidelines I’ve heard from anyone during these last couple of months, thank you!

  • getting your nutricional needs med then by removing the toxins, when you are well nourished your body wouldhave the tremendous capacity of clensing itself from the toxins and the body does not crave a lot by the nonfuctional foods

  • I saw an ad posted by this channel, and the sucker badmouthed “Milo” a cocoa product as being full of sugar. You guys are so full of crap, go make an ad showing a bottle of Coca Cola and talk shit about their excessive sugar content instead, not Milo.

  • For me, when I could still go to work and school I would always go to the nearby store in breaks to buy some snacks and food, and I kind of ate a lot, because I felt like I was hungry but in reality I think my body was just really accustomed to eating a lot during the day. But nowadays that I’m always at home and I also had a few really bad weeks where I didn’t feel like doing anything at all, I eat waaay less than I did before and it has come to a point where I really don’t feel hungry at all, I just try to eat at least 2-3 meals a day cause I know I have to, but I just don’t have the appetite I had when I was having 6-7 something during the day.

  • I REALLY LOVE ALL THAT YOU SHARE WITH US THANKS… CAN I SHOW THAT IN MY Social networks I am @ketolanders and I so happy because I found you

  • Eat what is natural for you n locally available to you. It could be meat, grains or veggies.. eat local foods, eat what you have grown up eating.. eat freshly cooked home food, not more than 4 hrs after you cook food.. eat in peace, avoid TV n screen time

  • As soon as I turned 40, I started to get problems with my eye-sight. I kept looking up treatments for impaired eye sight and I come across the eye sight advancement method “fetching zuzo com” (Google it). That was Eight weeks ago and I started to see indications of progress after 2 weeks. It helps developing my reading..

  • Delicious, Easy-To-Make Smoothies For Rapid Weight Loss, Increased Energy, & Incredible Health!

  • But my diet is way simple but still I am continously getting weight and more in depressing days because I am not able to swallow a single bite and I skip and sleep less
    Reason:maybe Cushing syndrome

  • honestly i just think people associate low-calorie with healthy and high-calorie with unhealthy, although that’s not a good way to determine whether or not a certain food is good for you. for example just because soda has less calories than milk doesn’t mean it’s better for you. and although red meat is considered very unhealthy by most, its actually really good for you, as long as you don’t eat too much. eating healthy shouldn’t be a problem as long as you don’t stick to all these common stereotypes and beliefs.

  • You made a great point when you said when you feed your body the proper nutrients it needs it has an amazing capacity to heal itself and that’s getting stronger and that’s becoming able to rid itself naturally of the toxins so many of us go on these I need to rid my body of toxins rid my body of toxins will yes course but the number one focus should be on building up my nutritional Supply so that my body can rid itself of toxins naturally I love it it’s a point I haven’t heard yet great video and I’m really digging you

  • it would be very helpful for you to also trace the life expectancy 100+ years ago (it’s for free, on wikipedia). you will see that they did not live to develop cancer, so I’ll call this bullshiitake.
    as for the rest, I fully agree.

  • Is this guy some kind of vegan-veggie whatnot?

    I think he is sneaking around the issue trying to hide his hidden V-agenda, to keep Westerners enslaved to malnutrition.

  • Hi speaks common sense. Most problems are caused by eating too much; eating too little and/or eating the wrong things. We are meant to eat all foods in order to get the variety of nutrients required by our bodies. I had surgery last August and for 6 weeks after my appetite was very much diminished. I ate proper food but less of it and I didn’t eat at night. I lost 6 lbs not even trying. As my appetite came back I made an effort to keep portions under control and to not eat after dinner. Today I’m down 28 lbs and still losing. I eat what I want; I eat out occasionally; I avoid sugar I when I can and I don’t drink much alcohol. I’m over 70 and not very active so this is truly a feat for me who has much experience with weight loss programs. They don’t work long term never have and never will.
    I’ve always had a sweet tooth but I no longer have cravings either sweet or salty but if the mood strikes me, I will. It’s all about moderation; whole foods, good fats and staying away from processed and empty carbs.

  • Can we please be provided evidence for the statistic claims made in this video? I, as I’m sure many others do as well, find your claim fascinating, and would love to explore the studies you mentioned that back those claims up in more detail. Can you provide this to us?

  • Im in a healthier headspace now, but in hindsight, my god i fcking had an eating disorder from March till end of April, when this whole pandemic hit the fan. I binged, and purged, and then exercised, went on a water fast, binged again, purged again, and at the time thought i was completely fine. It didnt help that i was in quarantine alone so literally no one could see or stop me. Its slow progress (been 8 days now) but ive started a morning work out routine that isnt harsh, started eating healthier foods at normal times, gave myself a cheat day a week, and it fcking worked wonders on my physical and mental state. Jesus, I’m glad i picked myself up before i really fell down that rabbit hole.

  • Remember to read your bibles and get close to Jesus and build a relationship with him and praise and worship him,he coming soon��✝️��✌��.

    he loves you�� he loves you soooo much he died for you nails in his hands and feet
    and skin peeled off his back and face for you
    You know why.because you special to him☺️

  • Vegetables destroy my digestive track. How can they be healthy? I forced myself to eat them for over a decade and suffered endlessly.

  • Great information.. I suppose that everyone want it inherently.. But they are disoriented with marketing messages, and daily tensioned lifestyle

  • Ugh, I’ve literally been saying this to the people around me, for months. Cutting out food groups is not sustainable! You need to go on TV or billboards or something, because I could scream at people lol.

  • Ok so i know that bodyweight exercises are great but if i wanted to incorporate weights at home should I use a kettlebell or should i use dumbbells? and what if i wanted to lose weight and build muscles at the same time how can i do both simultaneously?

  • Man the moment I saw the slicing of a tomato without squeezing any juice out of it I thought this is completely tasteless and soap like when touched I knoq thos is not the point but lol

  • Great video! Didn’t know you or your channel but I’mma digging in it now:)
    I love how secure, calm, technical and articulated you are I totally identify with it.
    Also, I pretty much agree with everything you said in this video (specially how Fit Industry skips talking about maintenance and the overproductiveness issue during this lockdown)!

    I’m currently following a specific program at home for strength and size (I actually have been working out at home for many years now) but being petite I have little appetite, so I came to the conclusion that spacing my meals more allows me to, as you so well said, eat a proper full balanced and anabolic meal each time I get to eat (instead of leaving food on the plate, as I usually do and therefore not hitting my so much needed macros nor micros).
    Less is definitely more for everything in this life! ��

  • DASH diet is the best recommend diet. You can modify it according to your taste and needs, and at the same time you can cut out on the unhealthy stuff.

  • After I became 40 years of age, my vision has changed and became blurry. A healthy vision can be maintained with supplements that are top quality and pure. I have only started out taking this vision improvement method “fetching zuzo com” (Google it) recently. There are indications of improvements to my vision now. It will make me think I should have tried this product way back when my vision was perfect.

  • diet to me is nutrion wat you put in body. not dieting but u r spot on as our bodies react to type of foods. no process foods fresh foods. the earth has provided us with all sorts of foods. never diet. but change wat you put in.

  • Something that’s really puzzling me is that protein based meals don’t keep me satisfied. Everyone is saying that protein is what keeps you full for a long time, but when I cut carbs from a meal, I will be hungry again in no time.

  • This helps a lot. My first 6 weeks of quarantine were a living hell. I forced myself to workout even when I didn’t want to and to “eat well” because of the pressure and the fear of gaining weight and losing progress. I’ve always had eating disorders, but quarantine made it even worse. Now I’m trying to take care of myself in a healthier way. Thank you for this video! It’s really helpful ❤️����

  • This video made me follow you, smart, science based information, concrete… It’s all I’ve been needing… I haven’t worked out in about 2 months and I was so active, so accustomed to heavier work out sessions that I just lost control and gain 3 kg and a lot of will… But I’m regaining my self control and having patience, after all this times are hard for us all…

  • I loved that you talked about “productivity” and the cost of wanting to push yourself all the time.
    I agree with you. It’s about finding the middle point. Knowing where to push yourself and where to stop. Cause in the long term that’s what it will lead you to your goals and happiness.:)

  • So fruits, vegetables, high quality protein and only water or tea as drinks. But what exactly is this high quality protein? And I think nuts should be there too.

  • I love the last advice you gave for the last myth. I think THAT advice applies to life in general. Society tells you that you need to grind through whatever you’re trying to accomplish—through work and the things that you really want to get done. But i learnt from experience that if you push yourself and make yourself grind and grind everyday without breaks, you’ll break down faster; you’ll just end up drained. If it doesn’t feel right, if you’re body is telling you that it’s not what it needs, listen to it! Usually, we ignore it for what we THInK we need instead of doing what our body is asking for. This goes for people with depression and anxiety too. Take your time. Do what you’re body and mind needs:) It’s the best you can do for yourself—cuz then you are respecting your body’s boundaries and being kind to yourself as well. Everyone’s timing is different.

  • For me bad food and good food is all about calorie density. A bag of potato chips contain more calories than a full plate of rice. That’s what bad food is. It doesn’t allow you to think or feel full.

  • Tell that to the fitness YouTuber “my thoughts and opinion might offend you” or whatever her name is. She says you’ll never build muscles without weights. I KNEW that wasn’t entirely true!

  • This idea is not faire enough for example for somebody that is not healthy due to overweight or obesity because Even eating lots fruits, vegetables and water, if they don’t eat less calories than what they waste daily or weekly, they won’t be healthy just by simple logic. You just cannot loose weight if You don’t eat less than what You waste.

  • “At what point does pushing harder begin to affect your happiness, begin to hurt you? Which kind of defeats the purpose of getting fit in the first place.”

    That was a truth moment for me.

  • when she told me to stand up, i did. And just to have something to do as i stood, i started stretching!
    What a simple, great idea to add a tiny bit of fitness to the lives of chronic slackers like myself ahaha

  • I think that meal frequency depends on the person. I don’t eat throughout most of my day as I am just not hungry. In the evening, though, I am hungry. I tried eating 3 meals a day, then 5 meals a day, and I ended up always being hungry but not able to eat anything at the end of the day which made me “hangry”, so I would end up eating over my calories and giving up. So, I eat most of my calories when I am at my hungriest. It’s worked well for me regarding weight loss, and I am not “hangry” at the end of the day because I am eating when I am actually hungry.

  • Portion control has worked the best for me. When I used to count calories, I saw food as just numbers and couldn’t enjoy any meal properly. Stopping the calorie counting took a kind of stress off of me and let me just enjoy what I was eating,. But I still eat healthily and have been able to lose fat consistently:).

  • Tbh I was on a really strict workout routine (trying to build more muscle) before quarantine and since my school let out for spring break and quarantine started I haven’t really been back on it I’ve been walking everyday but no strength training or anything of that sort I haven’t gained any weight but I felt like I threw away all my progress but seeing your video and especially the part where you talked about the people taking large breaks between pretty consistent workouts really motivated me it’s never to late to get back on track and something is always better than nothing when it comes to improving yourself and your health thanks for the awesome video and always backing up your information with facts I absolutely love that you do that and I really enjoy watching your videos��

  • I was supposed to start working out before lockdown but I’m a key worker so I’m working 60 hour weeks now �� I still started and took 2 empty cleaning chemical bottles home to use as weights. Only 5kg but better than nothing

  • I clicked on this video because I was intrigued, and by the end it was really something I needed to hear. Abby, thanks for your genuine, down to earth style of encouragement. I love your personality and your videos!

  • Really loved all of these! I especially liked your last 2 point about diet and being productive. I find what you suggested on diet works best for me as well your point on your daily tasks turning into habits.

  • This is literally the best fitness advice I’ve received in a long time❤️ Since I haven’t been lifting in the gym 4 days a week, I’m now walking 7-8 mi per day around our city hiking trails and I literally just hit my body fat goals…. I’m currently sitting at 18% (22-23% before quarantine) which seems so unreal to me because I was doing all of the macro counting/lifting 4 days a week (not at work) and my stress levels were always high either at work or at the gym! It was like the stubborn fat on my body melted away with less effort (crazy, I know)

    Figuring out ways to lower my stress has actually done wonders for my body composition goals that no one ever told me about!!

  • I’m eating a very balanced diet that includes carbs, protein and fats made by my doctor. I was really shocked to see that I have been gaining muscles during all this time!!! Like everybody else I was so sure I’m gonna lose it all, but it was the other way around! He did up my protein and I have been doing a minimum of 20-30 reps instead of 8-10. I have been using weights and I have been waking outside a minimum of 20.000 steps per day. There is hope♥️

  • I don’t understand… We in Pakistan have always AL-FUCKING-WAYS eat food cooked and eat it with whole where flat bread… That’s what I bloody am eating… Some days vegetable some days veggies and meat mixed and some days meat only…. Some days rice some days grains legumes… Etc… And I’m still getting fat… Fuck this logic
    ..this doesn’t work… It’s a pile of bullshit.

  • So abby I got diagnosed with MS a few weeks ago and i’ve been told off by my doctor that I shouldnt lift weights or do hiit for a while till I get used to the infusions and stop feeling so dead and tired all day everyday. She said the motto “no pain no gain” puts me at a risk now but im confused as to what kind of exercises I should do since I need to build muscles to increase my metabolism (it currently only burn 1000) and still lose weight without having to go against my dr’s orders? Please lmk if there are any certain exercises that fit this criteria?

  • Dam this was like a cheat sheet on avacados lol. Would you still get the benefits if you eat it after it goes dark? If it’s just oxygenated, why would it be bad for you?

  • I enjoy your post because they are very factually informative, but you eyebrows are so on point i can’t focus on the words. Amazing job on helping all our fitness goals and for being on point.

  • Hi!!! I love your content very much! I did notice, though, that sometimes your voice gets very quiet, to the point where I need to turn up my volume, and then shortly after it gets louder. I think it’d be a bit easier to hear you if you kept a more consistent volume. That could totally just be me though-I love what you’re saying and please please keep it up!!

  • My binge eating has gotten so bad, it’s crazy. I can’t seem to get a handle on it. I guess I tried to do too much at once when quarantine started and I burned out. But now I lack the motivation to do anything at all:'(

  • Is all this talk about diet in combination with workout for losing fat or just to make the muscle gains show more? I’m naturally skinny with a fast metabolism and I look like a stick so I never know if all this also targets me

  • .Every product for developing eye-sight has failed me, but vision enhancement procedure “fetching zuzo com” (Google it) is certainly a deal-breaker. With normal usage, my eye sight was significantly better after Fourteen days. Blurriness has minimized drastically and also my eyes do not feel sore anymore and focus is much clearer than ever before!

  • I find eating 2 meals a day and having snacks to curb the times when I’m hungry in between these meals is way more realistic than eating 6 meals/snacks per day! I’m able to have bigger portions and since my meals are made up of whole and nutrient-dense foods, I stay fuller for longer. Plus, after sticking to these eating habits, my appetite has honestly gotten smaller and I do not crave junk food as much as I did before.

  • 4:35 but doesn’t that mean our lifespans are getting higher? I know there are risk factors to them, but surely there’s a scare tactic on your part, isn’t there? If not, please tell me why, I’m really interested in your videos.

    Edit: Before someone writes a hate speech on me on about how I’m wrong and I’m just picking a very specific part of the video, I want to clarify this: I do agree with most of what the video says, I just want to know if, just like any business around, they used some type of scare tactic, and if that information is related to the other info he stated.

  • Everything is good in moderation relative on your health requirements. I think the guilt people felt is the regrets of breaking a chain of habits they hardly maintained for couple of weeks or months.

  • I agree with the sentiment of that last bit. I’m starting to be less restrictive lately and it’s actually helped a lot. Instead of going crazy and bingeing, I can have something that’s comforting or not exactly part of my diet and I am still meeting my goals. For a while, I was feeling guilty about having a sweet item or having a second serving but if I can do that two or three times a week it’s better than bingeing on 20K calories of just pure junk food and then hating myself the next day.

  • I’ll be honest I’ve been eating HORRIBLY lately; I’ve had nothing but junk. I had a baby in December and I gained so much weight throughout pregnancy, I was planning on losing some during quarantine but I haven’t lost a pound despite strenuous exercise. I’m going to bite the bullet and give portion control a go and get back to working on my form when exercising because it’s rubbish. I’ve never been to a gym due to fear of looking foolish doing exercises wrong but these videos really help. Thank you!

  • Am I the only one that appreciates she doesn’t have the fake high pitched voice fitness channels have ����‍♀️�� she seems more trustworthy and not fake, sounding sincere!

  • I try to make food less important in my life, by that I mean I don’t want to think all day about what I’m going to eat. There’s always a choice, so when it comes to chosing what I eat I try to make the right choice. I know it’s important what I run my body on, so when the time comes I think about my options and how I’d feel after finishing that meal. This way I take it seriously but don’t worry about my future choices entire day.

  • ive recently hit a plateau in gaining muscle/weight. i started doing liss cardio every morning and weights 3x a week in the evening. how long should my leg sessions be? will this help me gain muscle?

  • Actually Carnivores say that they don’t need much or any at all of vitamin C. There is a theory/reason behind that if you look it up. Lots and lots of water can deplete your body of essential electrolytes unless you reintroduce them back into your body. I am not famous like him and do not claim to be an expert but lot of what he is saying is everything most of us know already and many things that are proven to be not true or not valid or actually not so good like drinking lots and lots of plain water.

  • I have never used glasses in my life, but I almost had to. The vision improvement technique “Tοsazο Zuzo” (Google it) was a huge help as it relieved the stress. Ever since I made use of this product, there was less squinting and I felt happy I found this product right away after I decided to use products treat my eyesight. I could say that my eyes have never been in a better condition, especially now that my eyesight has improved..

  • personally I don’t think it matters what you eat, but how much you eat. I think it’d be fine to live on pizza as long as you don’t eat too much.
    With one exception: for 15 years, I have lived 92% on milk and cream (cow product, not vegan.) Best diet ever. 19 BMI.

  • Hello Eric Edmeades,

    I see a lot of your content on YouTube points towards how the industry is lieing to us about food (and I agree). Do you have any content on what foods and the frequency in which an individual is recommended to consume better foods?

    I believe I eat pretty well, but I also believe I could eat much better.

    I drink three to four litres of clean water (no other chemicals added) per day, and eat as well as I can afford. I am getting the feeling I am missing something. Will you fill in the gap/s please?

  • So basically “Everything is for people” just be smart about it. Even salads can be unhealthy if you go the wrong way about eating them (trust me, I would know). It’s ok to eat that burger or that piece of cake every once in a while, just don’t eat it every day and when you eat it, don’t go super overboard and eat a whole cake or something…
    Moderation and Consistency will do you much better than completely abandoning the “Bad foods” you like so much.

  • I can relate to the ED part. Im a recovered anorexic and I am now a powerlifter at a healthy weight. However, now that I dont have access to a gym, being restricted to at home workouts I noticed I work out too much and panic about my calories. If I dont pay attention to it I intuitively eat around 1400 calories instead of 2000.

  • I eat the 2 meals and snacks that’s awesome. Definitely what works best for me is a big health breakfast around 2pm snacks in between and a big healthy dinner at around 7-8pm

  • You are SO inspering. Thank you. If been feeling not so good but the principles you convey, are valid for different areas in life and really helpful.

  • you should still watch the video for the explanations!
    the myths:
    #1 if you stop lifting heavy, you will lose all your gains (tip: try more technical difficulty or reps to failure)
    #2 if you can’t lift weights, you can’t build muscle (tips: more range of motion, more awareness and control better form, more time under tension)
    #3 you need to use this time to diet (tip: do some planning, portion control)
    #4 you need to eat every couple hours to keep your metabolism revving
    #5 you need to use this time to be super productive

  • I started tracking my macros this year and I think it’s been so good for me to that during this time. Cause knowing me I would easily intake 3000 calories a day lmfa
