Also, keep in mind that the human digestive system
adapted over the period of 200,000 years on a diet
that did NOT contain very much grain at all. There may
have been very 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 dig-
esting the large quantities of grain in the modern diet.
The result -- you get fatter, as well as other health
I have an article that digs a little deeper into this topic
below and has been super popular (just look at how
many facebook “likes” this article has!) …
>> 3 Foods that you should STOP eating <<
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
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 cont-
roversial -- and that is the high concentrations of phyto-
estrogens that are found in processed unfermented soy
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 soy-
milk and soy proteins where the processing has actually
concentrated the phytoestrogens in much higher conce-
ntrations than you would ever get naturally.
This is where these processed soy products can actually
stimulate your body to hold onto belly fat.
Want more belly fat…
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
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 argu-
ment against soy, you need to factor in the xenoestro-
gens from pesticides and herbicides that you might be
exposed to as well, which can increase stomach fat. This
is in addition to the effects you may get from the conce-
ntrated phytoestrogens in soy... it’s the combination
(double whammy) of xenoestrogens and phytoestro-
gens in soy that could be a BIG problem for stubborn
There are many other reasons why soy products are only
holding you back from getting a lean healthy body, and
we’ve actually written an entire article on many of the
detrimental aspects of soy below… there are many other
“anti-nutrients” and other issues with soy that you’ll learn
in this article below…

horrible for you < <
Ok, now that we’ve talked about some of the bad news
about foods that you thought were “healthy” but are
actually making you gain fat, let’s turn to the good news!
That’s right… I’m going to talk about some foods that you
probably have been fooled into thinking are “unhealthy”.
But you may be surprised to learn that some of these
delicious foods can actually help you to get leaner and
lose abdominal fat.
Let’s dig in…
5 Surprising Foods that KILL Belly Fat!
1. Whole Eggs, including the yolk (not just egg
whites) - Most people know that eggs are one of the
highest quality sources of protein. However, most people
don't know that the egg yolks are the healthiest part
of the egg... that's where almost all of the vitamins,
minerals, and antioxidants (such as lutein) are found in
It’s such a shame that so many clueless fitness pros out
there have such little nutritional knowledge that they keep
preaching that you should only eat egg whites and not
egg yolks. Well, they couldn’t be more wrong!!
Egg Yolks contain more than 90% of the calcium, iron,
phosphorus, zinc, thiamin, B6, folate, and B12, and pant-
hothenic acid of the egg. In addition, the yolks contain
ALL of the fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K in the egg,
as well as ALL of the essential fatty acids (EFAs). Also, the
protein of whole eggs is more bio-available than egg
whites alone due to a more balanced amino acid profile
that the yolks help to build.
In fact, egg whites are almost devoid of micronutrients
compared to egg yolks.
Essentially, all of this extra nutrition (micro-nutrients) as
well as healthy fats that you obtain from the egg yolks
helps to control your appetite, balance fat-burning
hormones, and HELP you to burn body fat! So don’t
believe all of these clueless “professionals” telling you to
skip the yolks.
Just make sure to choose free-range organic eggs instead
of normal grocery store eggs. Similar to the grass-fed
beef scenario and wild vs farm raised fish scenerio, the
nutrient content of the eggs and the balance between
healthy omega-3 fatty acids and inflammatory omega-6
fatty acids (in excess) is controlled by the diet of the hens.
