Hey! – Rob here 👋🏼

 

Your Daily Health Fix today is about … 

Hidden Carbohydrates

If you’ve cut out sugar and carbohydrates but you’re still not loosing weight, it might be that you’re consuming them in hidden places . . .

Today’s video highlights a few places where those pesky carbs are lurking that are likely sabotaging your progress.

So you’ve cut out sugar and carbohydrates, or so you think, but you’re still not loosing weight. In today’s video we’re going to expose a few places where those pesky carbs are lurking that are likely sabotaging your progress.

OK, Let’s get started!

 

Milk & Milk Products

While whole milk and cheese can form a part of a healthy whole foods diet, it’s easy to over-ingest lactose, the natural sugar found in milk, when consuming milk products too regularly.

Thankfully, full fat cream and hard cheeses are usually not a problem and contain little or no carbohydrates at all, but lower fat products such as milk and yes even full fat milk contain a large amount of sugar per 100 millilitres or per cup.

It’s especially easy to get tripped up if consuming yogurt products and especially those that are flavoured. Also beware of yoghurt products marketed as high protein or low fat, usually with some kind of sports or health branding, as often they are also high in carbohydrates or sugar mimicking sweeteners.

Lastly, don’t forget that even if you are having just a small drop of milk in your coffee or teas, that this will spike your insulin levels multiple times throughout the day, so you want to keep those drinks plain and black unless having them around mealtimes so as not to repeatedly spike your insulin, which is a fat-storing hormone.

 

Alchohol

Now we’re talking about alcohol.

Yes, it’s true that there are no carbohydrates in vodka soda. But it’s easy to believe that that is the same for many other mixes, but from gin and tonics to most wines –  and the biggest culprit being beers. -These drinks are high in carbohydrates and can easily lead to mass over consumption of calories in the form of sugar just by drinking them.

If you are on a weight loss journey or looking to optimize your health for any other reason, it’s probably no surprise that the best thing to do is avoid all alcohol at all times.

 

Fruit & Vegetables

Here’s one that catches many people out – fruit and vegetables.

I’ve written before about how the mantra of eating five pieces of fruit and vegetables a day for health is purely fabricated and is completely false. In fact one large scale study even showed that vegetables play no part in making someone healthy but are often consumed by people that are already healthy. Note that it wasn’t the vegetables that made this happen.

Anyway, especially if you are trying to maintain very low levels of carbohydrate in your diet, be aware of the natural sugars found within fruits and vegetables. It’s easy to think ‘well it’s only fruit so it must be healthy’ but actually it’s upsetting the balance and hindering your progress.

 

Nuts and Seeds

If you are out in nature, it would be almost impossible to get your hands on the quantities of nuts and seeds found in even the smallest bags that are available on the shelves of grocery stores.

Nuts come encased in a tough shell that is difficult to access so it would take too long to access the nut inside and therefore we wouldn’t consume many of them at all, even when foraging. And seeds are found in fruit – but how many fruits can you eat each day to consume hundreds of seeds like found in convenience stores? 

Most nuts are just as high in carbohydrates as they are in fats and proteins. It’s easy to think of nuts and seeds as a health food, but even in a handful of peanuts or cashews, it’s easy to over-consume those carbs.

For example, just a small handful of almonds can add an extra 50 grams of carbohydrates to your daily intake total.

 

NOW – JUST BEFORE WE GET TO THE LAST SNEAKY CARB CULPRIT, … I produced this free guide – ‘ THE HEALTH FIX’S SIMPLE GUIDE TO CLEAN EATING’ – a simple guidebook that gives you all the do’s and don’ts of what to eat to in order to achieve and maintain optimal health. It covers all food groups (including Meats, Fish, Seafoods, Vegetables, Fruits, Oils & Fats, Dairy and many more), and it categorizes foods into ‘Allowed’, ‘Allowed Occasionally’ and ‘Banned’ for easy and smart decision making.

Sauces and Dressings

Lastly, we’re talking about sources and dressings. If you use pre-made dressings from the supermarket, the chances are high they it will contain large quantities of sugars often disguised by their bio-chemical name.

There are over 60 of these names and it’s easy to get confused.

That’s of course before we talk about any of the other highly processed ingredients contained in these products that are usually poisonous to the human body.

In any case, it’s best to avoid these dressings and make your own at home.

Beware of one thing with home cooked food – that even sauces and gravies often contain a large amount of flour as a thickener so you could get tripped up if you are trying to be strict about your carbohydrate intake.
