The Top 5 Foods that KILL Body Fat. Part 1 of 2

If you’re reading this Blog, then I know that you’re not only interested in losing abdominal fat and getting a Healtier body.
That’s what this Blog is all about… let’s dig right in… and get our independance back

Three question to get you thinking...

  1. 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!
  2. Did you know that so-called "whole grains", which you thought were healthy, might actually be making you GAIN fat, and make you sluggish?
  3. 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"?

 Let's dive in...

In this blog I wanted to Bring to light some of the shocking facts I stumble on my health and wellness  journey about some of the foods that you are already eating. These foods are marketed to you as "health foods" but are actually silently making you gain extra stomach fat! Yes I said it!!
I have a few surprises for you there are a couple of foods that you probably thought were unhealthy, but can actually help's you to burn off fat so much faster.
The proven opptions from my own experiance that are so valuable. It makes lose stubborn body fat easy, and it will also stop you from being fooled by the deceptive marketing of the giant food conglomerates, who want you to buy more of their cheap processed foods.

The foods that are silently making you fat and also some secret foods that can help you burn fat.

The first one I'd like to warn you about is "whole grains". This includes,  and
  • Barley.
  • Brown rice.
  • Buckwheat.
  • Bulgur (cracked wheat)
  • Millet.
  • Oatmeal.
  • Popcorn.
  • Whole-wheat bread, pasta or crackers
  • whole grain bread
  • bagels
  • muffins
  • pasta,
You  know that refined grains like white bread are bad for you, but I bet you think that “whole grains” are great for you and can help you to lose fat. Well, this could be a big problem holding you back from a lean body and a flat stomach.

What do you here all the time...

Trust me...I'm NOT going to preach to you about What every one else is talking about a low-carb/no-carb diet here. Moderate carbs has been shown to be healthy, if you choose the right options. This doesn't necessarily mean whole grains are the way to achieve that.
A little known fact is that grains are extremely cheap to grow, and process compared to other crops, and this means LOTS of  money for giant food conglomerates. Of course, this means that they have to deceive you with clever marketing to make their product seem "healthier" for you, and the whole time your 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 and quickly, 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. 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.
In fact,in the (WJG) World Journal of Gastroenterology, some nutrition scientists estimate that as much as 60-75% of the population has at least some small degree of intolerance to the gluten in many grains. which leads to

Diagnosis of gluten related disorders: Celiac disease, wheat allergy and non-celiac gluten sensitivity 

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, grains became a major part of the human diet. Your digestive systems is still not adapted to properly digesting the large quantities of grain in the modern diet.

The outcome is you get fatter, Wich opens up another avenue of other  health problems!

Now I realize the fact is that you may not be willing to completely eliminate grains from your diet. I'll show you how to best balance this aspect of your lifestyle change to get you the best fat loss.
You have been deceived about 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. They want you 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.

The high concentrations of phytoestrogens that are found in processed unfermented soy products.
You heard contradicting stories about whether these phytoestrogens are actually harmful or not. One thing that's often overlooked is that in most cases, we're not talking about eating just a few soybeans here and there. We're talking about products such as soymilk and soy proteins, where the processing has actually concentrated the 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 more belly fat… Just go ahead and drink more soymilk or eat more tofu!

But even if you don't belive my argument, consider this...

The other main problems with soy is that it is one of the most genetically modifiedand enhanced crops.  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. Xenoestrogens are a type of xenohormone that imitates estrogen. They can be either synthetic or natural chemical compounds wich 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.
 You don't agree with the phytoestrogen argument against soy. The xenoestrogens from pesticides and herbicides that you will be exposed to is (Double Truble). That will lead to increase stomach fat.
There are many other reasons why soy products are only holding you back from getting a lean healthy body,
