Our most common mistakes people make when they're trying to lose weight so. You're fifty pounds overweight summer's coming you know I think that's what's the biggest issue that you see with people. Now my cats and mine is raising is still Manny I mean Anna I'm sure a million different things there is on cable the first thing that comes and mind is. Delayed it people shops for healthy food still. Right now in our in our environment we're surrounded with. Healthy food. Healthy food products a things that are labeled low fat. You know rich in anti access anything that's labeled. Rich in anti accidents. You probably could have a better choice than Nat just the pure fact that the have to label it in its marketing strategies so there's lots of it's hard because there's false claims are my favorite is the word light lights up late does that even mean right color no definition. Lighten natural obvious things that are stamped on food products. I'm in it's tough because you think you're making a right decision to pick up a granola bar that lights or you know high in protein.

Little fat he older and I had this on sugar free something animals at time when you choose things like that from the grocery store. I'm is actually hurting you in the long until I'm more positive now I would think. And whenever I hear something in mind an alias guide people to just stick Qiyue. Real whole foods off the dozen heavily blindness stuff that's not packet tells people at whole foods means a lot of people ignore ideally I. I'd like it's just a part of my everyday and I I am a whole foods whole foods are. I dare Compaq's. The hasn't been really tempered when. Is that grow from the earth things that you can you know we don't go out and count ourselves with things that have been you know me up that roam around and just foods that are rich in nutrients in the not stripped still a lot of things that are in. Package is in the stores they're stripped of nutrients they're chemically altered their filled with. Additives in August that's a whole food is just things. Foods that are rich in comp plaques in you probably have to cook them you probably have to watch them I think cut them up and stick them in your Kendall's our whole foods. So stuff that hasn't been crunched her machine. Yeah is very guy you know without the diets that are out there he used were diet it's die with a TI now there's a lifestyle and you either live it or you don't Lou that's the way I look at it but is there a a perfect. Diet I mean I know this is controversial. Now I love this guy this is so fast everybody's like what's the magic bullet yak what's the magic guy what's the following Jack and I and in an. It's crazy because it we just go through all these waves of diet fad diets and on and everyone wants to know all in all what's what's the perfect it Scioscia must known. The pitcher is right in that there really is no perfect guy is where all individuals all required different they. As far as diet is part as far as ingredients in specific types of eating you know whether he. The in vegetarians. Need free dairy free green tree gluten free you know we all required different things as individuals and at a cost to figure out what do weenie. However I feel like there is wine. Standing principle. Of a close to perfect or perfect I and that is we just talked about which is just real food. You know I think most on people who are doing a pair ELV in vegetarian. You know on the other day as a whole I diet yeah what what is the one thing that they agree. People who eat whole foods you know eat whole foods don't Orioles don't. Junk food don't need a mean added sugar I'm I'm pretty sure all of them agree that's the mean principles oats honey there is no perfect I. I think everyone. Unite to figure out. XP based on your history be your body odor on site usage sugar. It's it's a octave. Is it is it is yes sugar is addictive it is a drug. It's extremely toxic. That's been my biggest challenge what is it I've lost a bowl ought to wait but sugar. Holy mackerel. If there's currently share its tail I don't eat them anymore but my god it's like I'm walking away from my first born I now. It is it's hard sell hard. The Liddy what is your goatee to deal I just don't need it and then I step on the scale and got him look at that it's still going down act so it's I think it's sugar. And it's all about consistency like you've got to act. And they have some bad days Greek he Manning get into picture but as long as you're. You know the road the road to success isn't in India's state and Camilo Bobby yeah soul is lying as your keep you keep moving forward and keep trying to keep adding your diet and Keaton taking those steps every day does that get better does get better yet still all of those things that damaged Michigan does your body is reversible. Which is a good thing you can Healy your body but only in the absence of shocker though. Crazy yeah and that stuff is in everything. It's in every it is and everything every drink you pick out yeah every food every well you go back to process. Now there's been let they're gonna say whether sugar apples. Yup so that's another different bell right up that's another very commonly asked question. And there is sugar in the sugar in fruit is different because it is accompanied with other components like fiber. In other things that react to batter in your body and on so I do believe that you know I sugar from fruit is different and sugar added checkered. But if you're someone who's being so hyped up I added sugar your whole life in your ideas in this extensive. Sugary state. Where your blood sugars in high for ever. Isn't that asking for you to be. Consuming a lot of fruit. I don't personally believes well I think you should probably limit the checkered to as low as possible yeah but not CD can enjoy that sometimes that's mine. Got a question from interwebs. Valerie ass after taking antibiotics for any reason how do you suggest to restore your stomach. I think she means she's got the sour stomach after taking the antibiotics. Just. He's got a good restore lawyers like feel lake on antibiotics. In your gut is really powerful it's. A lot of your immune system is stored in your cot and they being. That when you take antibiotics and medicines and times it damages it removes the good bacteria out of your got. Soul I am my suggestion is she you. Eat a healthy whole foods and it's really mean it takes some pro by addicts to promote healthy. Bacteria and got a limit added sugars. Added sugar is actually promote bad bacteria in your that's clear. Her and that bacteria in your that you take antibiotics is not RD kindness. Altered so we wanna do is build that back up through healthy food no added checkers and probably a pro attic. You go back to pull food thing yeah it did everyday straight and our question for the gym this morning I'm pregnant active and be. What should I be eating to make sure I'm getting enough protein mom. And I worry about my beacon friends are they getting enough protein in general. If they're working out. Possibly possibly not a theme that. I you can get. Crooks from a lot of a different foods not just to meet. She could do rule if your son who is he again and you are looking for a complete sources of protein. You wanna be mixing things slightly Gomes in grains out there because to gather those combined issue. Complete proteins which is what you really need in your body to build. On high quality protein not just. You know there's a certain science to it itself. I was suggests eating mean mean Tom Brown rice and beans together those things it would give you sufficient protein. And not add one other question somebody was asking if they should see a nutritionist or registered dietitian and I said I'm not sure I know the difference between those two. Jack is there a difference in a different sol. A basically I'm registered dietitian has gone through four years of undergrad. They teach in the dying 15100 hours in me on in an internship and then you sit down for a board exam. And that. Have registers you as a die teach. So I nutrition danced really anyone can. You did nutritionist claim is not on. Regulated so I gotcha I mean really anyone could be and nutrition as a pitcher the red dietitian and you've got very specific standards you got to meet before you can use it to get a lot of it's really just a matter of 15100 hours in. The internship. And then you take the exam. And basically that allows you to work in. Clinical settings like hospitals and nursing home. I'm in other things like that should I be seeing run over the other honestly I think that. My fear if you're Joseph six pack in the gym and you just wanted to tweak here. You know your your regiment and figure out what works best for you which would you recommend. It depends on is that isn't there hasn't yet. We you can have you can you can see a registered dietitian who has no idea what they're talking about you can also see an nutritionist. Someone who's been setting nutrition their whole life. Very educated who's very sound with their philosophy is yet. And and so it really depends on the person I think I think just there at the title of a registered dietitian doesn't mean Q knowledgeable. In the same thing for nutritionists. Seoul should ice be seeing line over the other. I think you should do your research on this person's background. You know seafood they've worked went. And in kind of make your best judgment you know. That's nine. That's not the right answer to get a I could talk nutrition all night edition for months we come back yeah.
