High Fat Storage Foods? What Are They?
Sometimes I take it for granted that we’re light years ahead of shows like Dr. Oz in regards to cutting edge nutrition advice and exercise knowledge.
I rarely get a chance to watch a lot of television, but the other day Karen just happened to turn on an episode and O-M-G…
I couldn’t believe the advice being dished out from an author of a brand new diet book.
And Dr. Oz wrote the forward, so he obviously “endorsed” the recommendations from inside this book.
I’m not trying to personally attack or bash Dr-Oz. I’m sure he gives some solid health advice on his show.
But I sat on my couch and watched this author recommend FOUR fat-storage foods in a row, while Dr-Oz stood by and supported everything.
High Fat Storage Foods:
1: Liquid amino acids made from soy beans
Almost all soy consumption in our culture comes from “raw soy,” not fermented.
Raw soy is known to be high in toxins that can raise bad estrogen, stop your body from absorbing certain vitamins and minerals, and interfere with thyroid function.
Also, raw soy goes through high-heat processing methods that can destroy the bioavailability of the protein and adds higher risk of things like heavy metals. This also forces most manufacturers to add “fattening” ingredients to their soy products like sugar, chemicals, and artificial sweeteners.
Additionally, at least 91% of all soy grown in the US has been genetically modified and contains GMOs (i.e. man-made “fake” food).
So stay away from raw soy as much as possible and use things like coconut milk instead of soy milk. Use different types of beans, raw nuts, and lentils in pace of tofu or soy patties whenever possible.
2: Agave nectar
This one is pretty common. Almost everybody still thinks agave nectar/syrup is “healthy,” but it’s simply not; it’s high “fat-storage!”
The marketing “angle” is its low-glycemic index, meaning it doesn’t raise your blood sugar quickly.
However, almost all agave is heavily processed and contains LOADS of fat-storing fructose. So even though it may not “spike” your insulin, it can still make you fat. Excess fructose intake causes insulin resistance and a fatty liver by raising bad triglycerides.
Avoid agave. Sorry Dr-Oz. It’s high fat storage and it’s not healthy.

3: Whole wheat bread crumbs
Most folks don’t even realize that today’s modern wheat is TOTALLY different from the wheat your grandma and grandpa used to eat, or even the wheat from just 10 to 20 years ago.
In fact, research is now showing that just two slices of today’s whole wheat bread can increase blood sugar MORE than 2 tablespoons of pure cane sugar.
High “Fat Storage” Bread
I’m sure small amounts of wheat bread crumbs in a recipe or two every week isn’t going to stop you from getting results.
But it’s still not a “healthy” food choice in today’s day and age. Period.
4: Canola Oil
Anybody who tries to defend canola oil hasn’t done their homework. The processing causes oxidation of the polyunsaturated component of canola oil.
The entire process raises the free radicals, and makes canola highly inflammatory on your body.
THIS is what makes it unhealthy for human consumption.
Even worse, this high-heat processing actually converts some of the omega-3s from canola into “trans fats.”
The WORST kind of fat you can eat.
Believe it or not, two much better long term choices are grass fed butter and coconut oil because they’re loaded with “friendly” fats.
PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER TO GET A FLAT BELLY FASTER…
This outdated and high fat storage nutrition advice above from Dr-Oz is the same bad advice I see personal trainers using with exercise at gyms all across the globe…
They tell EVERY new (or existing) member to make sure to do traditional cardio in their “target” heart rate zone for at least 30 minutes or longer 4-6x a week to burn fat.
This approach is outdated, inefficient, and BORING.
– There’s minimal calories burned because the intensity is so low…
–It takes up way too much precious time out of your day…
– There’s absolutely NO “after-burn,” so your body’s metabolic rate is back to normal in less than an hour after you’re finished…
Instead, use this time-saving approach that’s proven to release up to 9x more fat-burning growth hormone and boost metabolic rate for up to 38 hours after.
And it ONLY takes 3 sessions per week:
Have a great one,
