4 Popular Diet Tips – YOU SHOULD NEVER FOLLOW!!

Get a step by step diet plan that will get you ripped year round here…

Everywhere you turn, people give out diet tips and advice for how to lose fat or build muscle fast. The problem is, most of that advice is terrible and will not help you to get to your goal any faster. As a matter of fact, many popular diet tips will do exactly the opposite of what they are supposed to be helping you to do. In this video, I cover four of the most popular diet and meal plan tips that need to be buried right here and now.

Right off the bat, some will have you believe that eating fat makes you fat. That can’t be further from the truth. Eating fat, COULD make you fat if you eat in excess of your daily caloric maintenance levels just as eating too many carbs and protein can as well. The simple act of eating a fat molecule will not cause it to be stored as body fat in your body. In fact, nutritional fats are a necessary part of a healthy diet plan, with fat making up a portion of the surrounding layer of nearly every cell in your body.

Next diet myth that needs to die is the concept that eating after 6PM at night is somehow going to make you fat. Again, it comes down to where you are at in your daily caloric intake in relation to your maintenance levels. If you are 800 calories below your daily caloric maintenance intake, eating these calories at 7 or 8 or even 10PM is not going to adversely affect you in your pursuit of getting a ripped six pack. The fact of the matter is, you are still at or below your level to maintain your current level of body fat and simply shifting the time at which you consume these calories does not change their thermal effect.

That said, eating your meals too infrequently throughout the day can wreak havoc on your blood sugar levels. Having wildly unstable levels of blood sugar can lead to severe alterations in mood, focus and most importantly cravings. When you allow your cravings to build too significantly, you often find yourself in a position where you will grab foods that don’t align themselves with your healthy eating approach needed to get ripped and stay ripped as you build muscle.

The next popular eating and diet tip that is dispensed all too often these days is the concept that you cannot build muscle if you are following a vegan or vegetarian meal plan. Why? There are plenty of protein options available to those following a meat and dairy free meal plan including quinoa, chick peas, and even pea protein powders that enable vegans to get adequate protein without having to follow a meat based eating plan. The total amount of protein needed to build new muscle is still a hotly debated topic however it has been shown to vary from individual to individual and could be far less than what you may have been told previously.

Finally, there is a mistaken belief by some that taking supplements and fat burners will get you ripped. That is simply not the case if you refuse to also take your daily diet plan seriously. If you think that you can eat like garbage the whole day and simply pop a supplement and get lean, ripped abs you are wrong. That said, someone that is committed to eating healthy and then supplements their diet plan with workout and nutrition supplements is often able to get much faster results than those that don’t.

A lot of the success of workout supplements has to do with their ability to help you remain consistent with your nutrition plan and stay accountable to it. Starting your day with a supplement that you are financially invested in will help you to be emotionally invested in the goals you set forth for getting ripped and muscular that you set when you initially purchased the supplement. The consistency that supplements provide in helping you to get in high quality nutrition in a portable and easy to prepare way is likewise priceless.

As you can see, there are many workout and nutrition or diet myths that are popular and preventing you from getting abs and building muscle.

    What about insulin spiking after eating later at night?

  2. Cadenza La Gameuse on September 16, 2022 at 6:48 am

    I never heard the one about eating after 6pm. Just the statement is stupid, in the sense that it doesn’t take into account your daily routine. Are you a night shift worker, for instance?

    I’m glad I had some appointment with a nutritionist. The best tip she gave me was to eat a healthy snack if I feel hungry in the afternoon. I’m not before 5pm, but I finish work at 6, so I don’t have dinner before 6:30pm. And when I get home at 6-6:30, I’m too hungry to workout, and after eating, I don’t feel like doing a workout on a full stomach. (As a night person, there is no way I’m waking up earlier to train in the evening; at lunch, it’s a bit too thigh, so really, working out in the evening is what works best for me). Having that snack at 5 means I’m able to do my workouts at 6-6:30, then I have dinner around 8pm and I’m not hungry during the evening, so I don’t tend to get some chips or ice cream as often.

    Fasting is your friend… insulin is not necessarily that at all.

  4. Fart Man on September 16, 2022 at 6:51 am

    I eat dinner at 9p 10p 11p & 12a. I end up loosing more weight the next day. Eating later has great weigh loss benefits as oppose to earlier

  5. Tj EYM on September 16, 2022 at 6:52 am

    Kinda crazy this man tells us the truth and if you follow his ways you actually notice a change in health and body without paying for it

  7. Mr. M on September 16, 2022 at 6:52 am

  9. Celtic Warrior on September 16, 2022 at 6:53 am

  10. Josh on September 16, 2022 at 6:55 am

    What about saturated fats?

  11. Jason King on September 16, 2022 at 6:56 am

    Build muscle on a Vegan diet? No chance. The vegan will waste away into a skeleton and end up in the hospital….

  12. Kaiser Ironclad Chad on September 16, 2022 at 6:57 am

    Disagree with frequent regular meals being optimal. Many athletes do intermittent fasting and are doing great. Otherwise, good video.

  13. Scott Sclater on September 16, 2022 at 6:58 am

    Aside from the indirect calorie measurement, metabolism of a single tricglyceride produces ~4x more ATP than a single glucose molecule, bit more than the energy difference in calories would suggest.

  14. Andru Andu on September 16, 2022 at 6:59 am

    Which exercise burns most belly fat?

  15. Jt Hoang on September 16, 2022 at 7:00 am

    I wanna see Jeff vs. Chris Heria in the bar wars

  16. joecoffee968 on September 16, 2022 at 7:01 am

    What should I look for in a supplement?
    I’m trying to lose weight. Already lost around 50# but still would like to lose another 30 or so.

  17. Nasir Shams on September 16, 2022 at 7:02 am

    Today I was contemplating trying a vegetarian diet because so many sources online were advising against it. I had the same belief as Jeff and this video made me realize why I love him. Like I actually feel like he’s my friend. Jeff you’re a treasure and you’re making a huge impact on a lot of peoples’ lives.

  18. Michelle Colledge on September 16, 2022 at 7:02 am

    Can you do a video on the right supplements to take? For both men and women.

  19. Circumambulation Mædia on September 16, 2022 at 7:03 am

    Ketogenic diet was the best thing I ever did. Droped so much weight, felt great all the time.

  20. Joe Husk on September 16, 2022 at 7:07 am

    I think we need a little of everything in moderation all but junk foods..stay away from white bread…chips ..pantrys and of course sugar..ect

  21. Redbull wiseman on September 16, 2022 at 7:09 am

    Chicken rice and broccoli
    I spent last summer with this diet and in 3 months I saw growth with workout
    Can it be a life thing? Does a body really need all foods or is chicken rice and broccoli enough for majority of meals ?

  22. Crypto Arnold on September 16, 2022 at 7:10 am

    this guy is just skinny as a 10 year old girl sorry why take advice

  23. Khiem Le on September 16, 2022 at 7:10 am

    Jeff, thanks for clearing the second myth a lot of people oddly thinks that, but I think it’s important to not eat 2-3 hours before bed, but I am not a nutritionist or a trainer or a scientist for that matters, but I assumed it’s true that your bowl does tends to work slower at rest. Can you clarify?


  24. Progressive Discussions on September 16, 2022 at 7:10 am

    The ketogenic diet is the best because the body prefers fat above everything else as a source of energy and ketosis will cause the body to burn its excess fat for energy. High-protein, High essential fats, low carbs which includes eliminating sugar. You can buy over-the-counter ketostix at the pharmacy to make sure your body is in ketosis releasing these fat mobilizing chemicals. Calories in and calories out is not an efficient way to lose excess body fat.

    *Want to drop 5 pounds, 20 pounds or even 60 pounds if not more all without starving yourself **WeightLose.Fitness** or counting calories? This is entirely possible. I’d been doubtful at first, but when I began The Venus Factor, I was impressed at the results. The system is so easy to grasp and put to work in your life. I am not going to reveal to you how much I lost, but I wanted to share the information for anyone else planning to slim down.*

  26. Argentum on September 16, 2022 at 7:13 am

    I think eating late is not about that the calories will be used it’s about other more complex issues dealing with what your body does when you sleep and your circadian rhythm.

  27. silver sonik on September 16, 2022 at 7:16 am

    thanks Jeff! Of course you can build muscles (& be strong) where you are vegan! Look at the Gorilla

  28. Francisco Esparza Duran on September 16, 2022 at 7:17 am

    Hello, how can I know which suplements are legit or just a rip off

  29. Cearúilín Jayne on September 16, 2022 at 7:17 am

    Going to bend Hungry makes you fat

  30. Gramps on September 16, 2022 at 7:18 am

    Exactly, you wonder why you are getting fat and you’re not buring your own body fat that’s because to much fat is taken in.

  31. Dirk Moore on September 16, 2022 at 7:19 am

    Keep it simple. Insulin is a Fat storing Hormone. To burn Body Fat don’t eat foods that raise Insulin levels. Follow this one simple rule and you don’t have to Diet or count calories.

  32. Kingo on September 16, 2022 at 7:19 am

    How can I know how many calories I need to take to build muscle and not too much fat?

  33. Muscles from Brussels on September 16, 2022 at 7:20 am

    Dirty keto is a good way to go, high fat/low carb diet… Your body won’t absorb that fat without sugar, so you will have a lot of fat in your poop, but your body will reject that fat

  34. John Cloois on September 16, 2022 at 7:20 am

    Anyone please, answer the first question but with cholesterol and sugar(s?) And in what order are all these in, if any, as far as gaining too much fat and are there any more not mentioned? Thanks!

  35. jose nunez on September 16, 2022 at 7:20 am

    if you are starting off and have that next day whole-body nightmare soreness, eat an entire rotisserie chicken. maybe a small steak and egg breakfast. soreness will be under control within 12 hours

  36. Ron burgundy on September 16, 2022 at 7:21 am

    Love this guys info

  37. Piglet OfGreed on September 16, 2022 at 7:22 am

    Many people in Spain have dinner at9-10 p.m.,and obesity rate isn’t anywhere near as high as in USA.

  38. Charles Carmichael on September 16, 2022 at 7:25 am

    so grateful he covered the vegan aspect, Jeff you’re the best

  39. Lazar Mutavdzic on September 16, 2022 at 7:27 am

    I knew that the second one was coming miles ago

  40. Rishikesh H on September 16, 2022 at 7:27 am

    The only neglected muscles on Jeff’s body are his cheek muscles.

  41. David Grech on September 16, 2022 at 7:28 am

    Thank you Jeff for getting rid of the myths. Knowledge is power and I hope you know how much I appreciate your channel 👍💪

    What are your thoughts on low fat smoked meats for addition to nutritional plans?

  46. FPL Yerbs on September 16, 2022 at 7:38 am

    Thanks for myth number 3… I’ve never been stronger or leaner and I’ve been vegan for 4 years and I don’t supplement protein… Just my B12 and I’m rocking! If anyone still isn’t convinced can I introduce you to Nimai Delgado, never eaten animal flesh in his life!

  47. starbrother on September 16, 2022 at 7:39 am

    This guy is a no bullshit person

  48. Kopi ito on September 16, 2022 at 7:39 am

    I eat a about 1 chicken 1 day or 6 sardines fish or 2 eggs or very rarely cook I’m too poor to have a mix of everything a day. This was my struggle in being fit. I can’t afford the **poor diet** yt recommendations the 3 eggs, milk, and some vegetables a day

  49. MaXXX.Da.RippERR666 on September 16, 2022 at 7:41 am
