Precision Nutrition Tip of the Week

When you are grocery shopping, do you take your time to read the labels of the items that you are buying?  Personally, I take my time to walk the aisles and read the information.  Remember, you have to educate yourself on what you are buying to put in your body.  Just because somewhere on the box it says the food is healthy doesn’t necessarily mean that its entirely true.  John Berardi’s new nutrition tip tells you why…

Unhealthy ‘Health Foods’
by Dr. John Berardi

Products that claim to be ‘Cholesterol Free’ and ‘Low in Saturated Fat’ often have the most trans-fatty acids. Unfortunately these are the products that most of the public thinks are ‘healthy.’ Remember, trans fats have absolutely no place in the diet! They’re the only type of fat highly associated with very negative health outcomes.

Have you thought that you have been doing everything right and you’re just not seeing the results that you want?  A nice healthy breakfast and you are seeing your waistline grow instead of shrink?  Well I may have some suggestions on how to get help you get in the shape that you are looking for.  What you really have to focus on is NOT restricting yourself when it comes to eating.  Eat healthy but eat Smart.  One of the down sides of strict eating is that you sometimes falsely “reward” yourself with unhealthy choices:

Meal 1
1/2 cup oats, 4 egg whites

Meal 1B, aka “I feel restricted and deprived.”
This is when the day begins to feel daunting and the meal plan feels very restrictive. Translation: Time to retaliate. Next stop – coffee shop for a jumbo coffee with extras and a scone.

Tip #11
Why Choose Oats
by Dr. John Berardi

If you’re looking to gain mass and have a good carbohydrate tolerance, place a bowl of fiber-rich, low-GI rolled oats along with ½ scoop of vanilla protein powder, frozen mixed berries, pineapple and a small quantity of mixed nuts right next to your omelet. This is a muscle building breakfast that’s hard to beat. I place this bowl right next to my omelet for a breakfast that’s hard to beat.

However, if you tend to hold a lot of body fat, just stick with protein, good fats, and veggies for breakfast. Save the non-fruit and veggie carbs till after exercise only – yes, even oatmeal.

Tip #9
Mood Eating
by Dr. John Berardi

Most people eat based on their mood and/or some subjective feelings of hunger. They don’t eat based on what their bodies need. Think of it this way: you’re about to take a long drive on a stretch of highway with no gas station. Do you fail to stop for gas before you hit the road because you’re ‘not in the mood?’ Of course not. Think of eating in the same way. Eating fuels your metabolic engine. So it’s time to start feeling like eating so that you can stop feeling like you’re scrawny.

Are you getting enough fiber in your diet??

Tip #8

Fiber Facts

by Dr. John Berardi

Shoot for about 40-50g of mixed fiber per day, but no more. The absolute lower limit is 20g per day. Your main fiber sources should be (in order of importance): vegetables, beans, nuts, fruit, and grains (like oatmeal). If you eat 1 oz of mixed nuts, 1 apple, 2 cups of kidney beans, and 2 cups of mixed vegetables each day, you’ll be getting 41g of fiber. Also, a small amount of supplemental fiber is okay. You can get soluble fiber from psyllium, guar gum, and apple pectin, and insoluble fiber from flax seeds.
