9 Foods you should NEVER EAT if you want a SIX PACK
Check out my client Jason Stone’s transformation where he put on a whole bunch of muscle
I’ve been working out 7 days a week twice a day every day and I just can’t figure out why I’m not losing weight.
Like I do everything right, I lift heavy weights, I do tons of cardio, I eat 6 small meals a day,
I don’t eat past 6 at night, and I still can’t see my abs. I can’t figure out what the heck I’m doing wrong…
What’s up guys my names Max and in today’s video,
I want to go over the 8 foods you should never eat again if you want a six pack and if you want to lose weight.
Since you’ve probably already realized that ice cream is one of them let’s start with ice cream first.
1. First of all ice cream is super high in sugar which can lead to weight gain, increased levels of blood triglycerides and diabetes.
When you have a high spike in blood sugar which ice cream will definitely cause you to have your body reacts by releasing a lot of insulin.
When insulin levels are high in your body it’s literally impossible for you to burn fat and it’s very easy for you to gain weight.
Couple this with the fact that most ice creams will have at least 300 calories in just one cup
and you’ll easily see how ice cream is one of the worst foods to eat when trying to burn fat.
2. Another food that’s terrible for you if you want to see your abs and its also just as bad for your health…and that food is popcorn.
Almost all microwave popcorn varieties come in a bag that is lined with perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA).
This chemical is the same toxic stuff found in Teflon pots and pans. And This chemical when heated has been linked to infertility,
cancer and other diseases in lab animals. There are also GMOs, artificial flavors, msg, and I don’t know if you guys know this but regular corn farming requires a lot of pesticides.
On top of all of that trans fats are still used by most popcorn brands even though trans fats have pretty much disappeared everywhere else since they’re so strongly linked to heart attacks.
And finally last but not least certain studies are starting to show that it might be a bad idea to Nuke any of your food not just microwavable popcorn.
So yeah popcorn may be the single worst food you can have for fat loss and for your health.
3. Moving on.. we have Oreos and in general, any type of cookies that you buy in a package like Chips Ahoy, Keebler fudge cookies I think they’re called.
Now, why are these so bad? Well, all of the same things that applied to ice cream apply here as well.
You will get an insulin Spike and it’ll be impossible to burn fat until your insulin levels go back down.
But something that makes this such a dangerous food to eat if you’re trying to burn fat is the enormous calorie content.
In just 6 Oreos we’re looking at 270 calories and I bet that almost nobody eats just 6 Oreos.
Oreos are addicting as soon as you eat one you know you’re going to eat 20. If you eat a row which is typically how much people eat you’re looking at 675 calories.
Good luck burning that off. Oreos are super high in sugar fat and calories. That is definitely something you want to avoid while cutting body fat.
4. Next, we have soft drinks. Let me show you guys something this right here is peach flavored Snapple.
And in one cup there are 200 calories and close to 48 grams of sugar or 12 teaspoons. You only really should be allowed a maximum of 6 to 9 teaspoons of sugar a day.
You already went over with just one of these drinks. Now it’s not only Snapple and I know that you guys already know that Pepsi coca cola Mountain Dew Hawaiian Punch brisk sprite and all that other canned soda…
I already know that you know that that’s bad for you…. especially when you’re trying to burn fat.
But you might have not known that the orange juice and apple juice and in fact most juices that you see at the store are absolutely horrible for you.
Apple juice has 24 grams of sugar in a cup. Granted that’s half the amount that you’re going to get from a cup of Snapple but thats still going to cause a major halt for your fat loss.
5. Up next we have chips. Luckily lately there have been some Brands releasing chips that are actually not that bad for you.
Unfortunately, most of them still are pretty bad for you. Almost all chips are super high in salt, sugar, and fat.
Also because they’re cooked at such high temperatures it could cause the formation of carcinogens.
Don’t be fooled by the kettle cooked chips and the “natural” chips because …..it’s the same shit.
The one brand of chips that I’ve seen that I like is Utz sweet potato chips. They just have peanut oil sweet potatoes and salt listed as the ingredients.
6. Cream cheese is next on the list and just so you guys know cream cheese is made out of full-fat milk and cream.
Does that sound like what you would include in your diet if you want six-pack abs?
the other thing about cream cheese is that it’s filled with additives and artificial flavors.
And unfortunately when you try to go with the low-fat alternatives to avoid the high fat….
and high cholesterol content found in regular cream cheese you are unknowingly adding more additives and artificial flavors.
7. Let’s see what we have next…..pizza. Pizza is a combination of fat from the cheese, carbs from the dough and a bunch of salt.
In total, one slice of plain pizza has 285 calories.
Almost everyone I know has it least two slices which would put you well over 500 calories.
Combine this with dessert and you’ll quickly see that ……you’re never gonna see…. your six pack.
8. Next thing you should never eat is honey mustard and other high-calorie condiments.
In just two tablespoons of honey mustard, you’re taking in 130 calories with 6 grams of sugar and 11 grams of fat.
Mustard is fine but when honey meets mustard be cautious.
You also want to avoid mayonnaise, almost all dressings, and blue cheese.
9. Last but not least is fried chicken and any kind of fried foods. Anything that you fry instantly has a huge Spike in calories and in fat.
Eating fried foods increases your risk of obesity stroke diabetes and cancer so it’s not very good for your health either.
Also, the oil that’s typically used to fry any kind of food is usually the cheapest available. Meaning not very high quality.
So that’s all 9 of the worst foods you can eat when trying to get a six-pack. The really cool thing is is that you can even sneak some of these Foods into your diet occasionally and still get a six-pack.
Of course, every time that you do you will have a couple of hundred extra calories to deal with…
but it can all technically be dealt with as long as your Macros and calories balance out at the end of the day.
So remember that total food intake plays a really big role. In fact, it plays the biggest role.
If you only eat a serving of chicken breast with some honey mustard for the whole day you’ll probably still burn fat.
As long as you remember that you need an overall calorie deficit of about 25% below maintenance …
and you do your best to keep your insulin levels low you’ll be seeing that six-pack in no time.
but when I’m trying to burn fat I completely stay away from all these Foods. like I mean no cheat days at all.
So you’re probably wondering well why do you have these Foods than Max. And that is something that’ll let you guys decide in the comments.
where do you guys think I got all this food? That’s it I hope these tips have helped.
