Could there be anything more confusing than “how to eat healthy?” In today’s video, I will be breaking down how to eat healthy and lose weight + feel amazing!


Is milk good or bad for you?

Are carbohydrates healthy or not?

Could someone please explain to me how to stop eating Oreos?

The point is: There is a lot of confusing, contradictory, and misunderstood information out there…

So today the health nerd is going to show you how to “eat healthy to lose weight and feel awesome.” And it’s all backed by science…

First, let’s start with what not to do…

Mistake #1. Getting bad advice…

Whether it’s a parent, a trusted friend on the latest fad diet, or some guy on the internet, just because someone is “healthy looking” doesn’t really qualify them to give you sound health advice. You wouldn’t take financial advice from a rich kid just because his parents are rich, the same way you shouldn’t take health advice from someone just because they are genetically gifted. Seek advice from those who have actually transformed themselves or really good looking internet cartoon people.

Mistake #2. Eating processed foods…

Do you know how much cardio it would take to burn off 2 Krispy Kreme glazed doughnuts? Approximately 37 minutes straight of jogging at an 8-minute mile pace. The problem with processed foods like chips, sugars, and those doughnuts are that they make getting in an enormous amount of calories incredibly easy to do. And strangely enough, these foods are more likely to leave you hungry and unsatisfied after a meal, causing even more calorie consumption. So avoid processed foods.

Mistake #3. Thinking any specific “diet” gives you a free pass…

There are plenty of overweight people who eat strictly paleo, and there are plenty of fit people who eat pasta regularly. The mistake is thinking that any particular diet magically lifts the “laws of health.” The point is: Just because the cookie recipe is “vegan approved” or “gluten free,” doesn’t mean your body needs 30 of them…

Mistake #4. Eating lots of pretend “diet” foods.

When something is labeled “healthy” in the food industry, it usually means “we have taken the naturally occurring fat out of this product and have inserted a ton of sugar and salt for taste – enjoy.” It’s at least a little ironic that they are now putting the fats back into foods as we now know the real dangers come from high sugar intake. The worst offenders almost always have the label “fat-free” and you should watch out for these in particular. Which is a perfect lead into the proven scientific ways to eat healthy…


Nobody can take charge of how you look and feel other than YOU. By far one of the best things you can do for your health is to learn how to read nutrition labels and understand what they mean. Click here to watch our video on how to read nutrition labels properly.

2. Eat Real Food.

By real food, I simply mean food that grows in nature. It’s hard to go wrong if you focus on eating lots fresh vegetables, fruits, and lean meats. These foods have been proven in multiple studies to make your body feel full and satiated after eating. A good rule of thumb is to stick to the perimeter of the store when grocery shopping. This is where the fresh food is stored, so it’s a good idea for any healthy eater. If you’re eating fresh whole foods, but still not losing weight…

3. You need to track your calories…

While there are PLENTY of other factors that matter in eating healthy other than just calories, they do play a significant role in your health. Something as simple as a calories tracker on your phone can be insightful to why your weight is going down or going up… But it’s not just the calories, you also need to…

4. Listen to your body

Some people are gluten intolerant, some people are lactose intolerant, and others are just plain intolerant. Listen to your body BEFORE listening to the advice of the health and fitness community. If you start paying more attention to how your body feels before, during, and after meals, you will notice eating healthy is rather easy. In fact, consciously aware dieters often consume 1000 calories fewer than their counterparts.

Shawn Bailey says:

I asked this before but for those of us that don’t like eggs and have a difficult time finding healthy choice for breakfast on the go… what would you recommend? I have made shakes and eaten oatmeal etc and those are all great but do you think there are bars out there that are healthy and can actually do what they claim too. I’m aware most are not the best. Thank you!
