...and 2 Food Types That You Thought Were "Healthy" That Actually Make You Fatter
Article by Mike Geary -- Certified Personal Trainer, Certified Nutrition Specialist
I have 3 quick questions for you...
1. Did you know that so-called "whole grains", which you thought were healthy, might actually be making you GAIN more body fat?
2. Did you know that other foods marketed as "healthy" such as soymilk, soy protein, and other processed soy products contain specific concentrated compounds that can cause something in your body referred to as "stubborn belly fat"?
3. Are you aware that some foods that you might actually think are unhealthy, such as whole eggs can actually HELP your body to burn abdominal fat? And yes, that includes eating the yolks!
Let me explain more...
In this article, I wanted to show you some shocking facts about some of the foods that you are already eating. Some of these foods are marketed to you as "health foods" but are actually silently making you gain extra stomach fat.
I'm also going to surprise you by showing you a couple foods that you probably thought were unhealthy, but can actually help you to burn off stubborn abdominal fat faster.
I want to show you some valuable ways to lose stubborn body fat, and stop being fooled by the deceptive marketing of the giant food conglomerates, who want you to buy more of their cheap processed foods that are making you fatter, while they claim these foods are "healthy" for you.
My name is Mike, and I've been working as a nutrition researcher, author of 3 different fitness and nutrition books, personal trainer, and Certified Nutrition Specialist for over a decade now. In that time, I've discovered some MAJOR issues about the way that you're being deceived by big food companies, and how this is making you pack on more belly fat.
So let's get right into a few examples of foods that are silently making you fat and also some surprising foods that can help you burn fat.
The first one I'd like to warn you about is "whole grains". This includes whole grain bread, bagels, muffins, pasta, and more.
You probably already know that refined grains like white bread are bad for you... but I bet you think that whole grains can help you to lose fat. Well, this could be a big mistake holding you back from a lean body and flat stomach.
Trust me...I'm NOT going to preach to you about a low-carb/no-carb diet here... moderate carbs can be healthy, if you choose the right options... but that doesn't necessarily mean whole grains are the way to achieve that.
Remember that grains are extremely cheap to grow and process compared to other crops, and this means BIG money for giant food conglomerates. Of course, this means that they have to deceive you with clever marketing to make their product seem "healthy" for you, and make you want to buy a LOT of it, thinking you are doing your body good.
The first problem with whole grains is that many whole grain breads and cereals still raise your blood sugar fairly substantially, which stimulates an insulin spike, and triggers you to have more cravings for carbohydrate-rich foods later.
In the big picture, you inadvertently eat more calories!
Another problem with whole grain products is that they are still fairly calorie-dense with a lower amount of nutrient density compared to some other options I can show you. In addition, a large percentage of the population has some degree of intolerence to gluten, which is found in high amounts in wheat and some other grains.
Also, keep in mind that the human digestive system adapted over 10's of thousands of years on a diet that did NOT contain very much grain. There was low amounts of grain in the ancient human diet, but nowhere even CLOSE to the quantity in today's modern diet.
It wasn't until agriculture became more prominent only a couple thousand years ago, that grains became a major part of the human diet. This means that our digestive systems are still not adapted to properly digesting the large quantities of grain in the modern diet.
The result -- you get fatter, as well as other health problems.
Now I realize that you may not be willing to completely eliminate grains from your diet... but don't worry, I'll show you how to best balance this aspect of your diet to get you the best fat loss results while still enjoying your favorites.
Another so-called "health food" that you have been deceived about is soy...
Some of the biggest offenders in the soy industry are soymilk, tofu, and soy protein products. Remember that soy is a BIG multi-billion dollar industry and their goal is to use clever marketing to fool you into thinking that these highly processed soy products are actually healthy for you, so you buy more of them thinking you're doing the body good.
Don't be fooled by their deceptive marketing!
The first thing I should mention about soy is a little controversial -- and that is the high concentrations of phytoestrogens that are found in processed unfermented soy products.
Now I know you may have heard contradicting stories about whether these phytoestrogens are actually harmful or not... but one thing that's often overlooked is that in most cases, we're not talking about eating just a few soybeans here... we're talking about products such as soymilk and soy proteins where the processing has actually concentrated phytoestrogens in much higher concentrations than you would ever get naturally.
This is where these processed soy products can actually stimulate your body to hold onto belly fat. Want a bigger gut? Just go ahead and drink more soymilk or eat more tofu!
But even if you don't buy that argument, consider this...
One of the other main problems with soy is that it is one of the most genetically modified crops and also one of the crops containing the highest pesticide/herbicide residue. Many pesticides and herbicides that get inside your body actually act as something called xenoestrogens which contribute to the condition known as "stubborn belly fat". They make your body want to hold onto belly fat and make it particularly hard to burn off.
So even if you don't agree with the phytoestrogen argument against soy, you need to factor in the xenoestrogens from pesticides and herbicides that you might be exposed to as well, which can increase belly fat. This is in addition to the effects you may get from the concentrated phytoestrogens in soy... the combination of xenoestrogens and phytoestrogens could be a BIG problem for stubborn belly fat!
There are many other reasons why soy products are only holding you back from getting a lean healthy body, but we don't have time to explore them all in this article.
Now let's turn the tables and talk about foods you might have thought were unhealthy and off-limits if you were dieting, but these foods can actually HELP you to lose stomach fat.
One example is certain types of grass-fed meats, which contain a unique type of healthy fat called CLA. CLA has actually been shown in many studies to aid the fat burning process in your body and help build lean muscle. It also seems to particularly target abdominal fat reductions. So if you've been avoiding red meat (only grass-fed is healthy though) in your dieting efforts, you may not have even realized that you could be sabotaging your fat loss efforts.
Another example is whole eggs -- yes, including the yolk!
So many dieters falsely think that they need to live on egg whites and oatmeal when they're trying to diet down. However, this could also be hurting your results because over 90% of the important vitamins, minerals, and trace nutrients are found in the yolk of the egg, and not the white. Also, the protein of whole eggs is much more bioavailable compared to just egg whites.
And another factor is that the healthy fats in whole eggs help to control your appetite and keep your fat burning hormones balanced. Without these healthy fats, you can inadvertently decrease your beneficial fat burning hormones.
There are other foods that you may have thought were "fattening", but can actually help you to burn belly fat. A few of these that may shock you are:
More unique teas, spices, veggies, and unusual workouts to help you win the battle against abdominal fat...
I have a TON more shocking information that I want to give you to help you lose stubborn stomach fat and get that lean sexy stomach that I know you want. And it's all contained in my best-selling online program called "The Truth About Six Pack Abs".
Don't let the "six pack abs" part of that title scare you. If you just simply want to lose some body fat and get a flatter stomach, I'll show you exactly how to achieve that goal without getting "overly lean". However, if you want to get super lean, and actually get ripped six pack abs, the information I put together in this program will show you how to do that also.
This is about WAY more than just the foods that we've been talking about so far... this is about very unique exercise strategies, motivation, how to adopt the mindset that will give you permanent success in your fat loss efforts, and a whole lot more. In this program, I teach you big picture aspects, but also some of the nitty gritty details that most people have never thought of before.

You Have My Guarantee That You Will Lose Stomach Fat and/or Have an Improved Flatter Stomach in 60 Days
I'm not going to lie to you like some sleazy marketers do!
The truth is... Depending on how much abdominal fat that you have to lose, I can't guarantee that you'll have perfectly lean 6-pack abs in 60 days... for example, if you have a large amount of stomach fat to lose, it might realistically take longer than 60 days.
