What up Zen Dude Nation. Today we’re going to talk about healthy versus unhealthy food. I get asked all the time Dan, should I be eating this? Dan is
this good for me? Dan is this gonna make me fat? Dan is this gonna make me ripped?
Dan is this gonna make me skinny? Who decides that food is healthy or unhealthy? Every
single food is either healthy or unhealthy depending on your body. Just
because a really good marketing department at a granola bar company puts healthy on the label does not mean that it’s gonna give you the body that you
want. It’s totally understandable to have these perceptions simply because we are
told this is good for you this is bad for you the whole way from when we’re born until we grow up. So if that’s not the most important thing then what do I need to
know so that I can have the body that I want? Are you getting the nutrients that
you need and by nutrients I mean fats carbs and proteins to either lose weight,
gain weight, build muscle whatever the case may be. Your body is
literally just a huge science equation that if given the right inputs you will
get X result. Let’s talk about nutrient dense foods and what I mean by nutrient
dense foods are foods that pack a lot of different nutrients that are needed for
fat loss and muscle growth but don’t have excess calories. Lean meats, chicken, ahi tuna, fruits, green vegetables asparagus, broccoli, brussel sprouts, oils
nuts, avocados. Real food. If you put in the right amounts of fats, carbs, and
proteins you are going to be able to get the body you want consistently over time.
Instead of focusing on healthy vs. unhealthy focus on eating nutrient-dense
foods. Comment below and let me know what foods are you eating that say they are
healthy and you don’t really know if they are or not.
