>>Watch 4 Weeks Diet Video Here<<

Audio Text:
oh boy grab a cup of tea and a notepad cuz this is gonna be a big one hey guys if I were to ask you what the best diet for weight loss fat loss muscle building was a lot of you to polish out paleo or vegan duh or keto makes you lose the most body fat or eat whatever you want as long as it hits your macros it’s all calories in versus calories out or because you all watch my channel a lot of you would probably say intermittent fasting is the best because it also has a bunch of other health benefits well you’re all wrong and in this video I’m going to explain what the best diet is to help you achieve your goals and why the diet that you’re following so religiously right now might not be the best option for you but before I get to the best diet for fat loss muscle building etc I have another book recommendation for you and I partnered with audible again to get it to you for free you guys know I listen to a ton of audiobooks I don’t really have time to read but I do drive a lot so listening to audiobooks about health and fitness allows me to learn a ton about health and fitness which helps me be more fit and healthy and in turn helps me be a better educator for you guys and I do have an insanely huge collection of audio books so if listening to science ebooks about health and fitness isn’t exactly your cup of tea you can find what you like on that kid so my book recommendation for what finally really drove me to dive into this video it helps me figure out exactly where I wanted to take it is wired to eat by Rob well I learned so incredibly much from listening to it and it’s kind of about the Paleo diet and gut health but if I say anything more I can spoil the rest of the videos that’s all I’m gonna say for now but if you aren’t all interested in anything that I say in this video or even literally if the title of this video interests you I highly recommend listening to it if you do want to listen to it for free just go to audible.com slash Marissa that’s ma RIS a or text Marissa to a five hundred five hundred and you can sign up and get your free trial and one free audiobook credit one of the things that this book really brought to my attention is how people love to put themselves in boxes in health and fitness and in life boxes make sense to us you’re either in it or you’re not and there’s a clear set of rules to be in the box the box life is the simple life it takes the decision-making out of your hand you have the vegan box where the only rule is to not eat animal products and the only rule Nikita box is to keep yourself in ketosis by eating low carb moderate protein and high fat and the only rule in the iifym box is to hit your macros everything else is fair game the thing about these boxes is that someone else wrote these rules based on their thoughts and opinions and only some cases based on science these boxes are very generic and you either have to cram yourself in or force yourself to mold to the shape it’s kind of like one size fits all clothing stores their clothes I fit the average person well but for most people they’re gonna be too big or too small or too short etcetera just like clothes the diet that’s gonna work best for you is the one that you tailor to your own body you have to build your own diet box so to speak and when you’re figuring out whether or not you should eat a certain food or a certain meal the question shouldn’t be is this paleo or is this vegan or is this whatever it should be is this food a good choice for me and my body to explain why this is so imperative I’m gonna paraphrase one of the most mind-blowing parts of wired to eat in a recent study hundreds of people were fed a wide variety of food and their individual glucose responses were attract over time and what they found was that there was a massive variation in the kinds of foods that people reacted favorably or negatively to in terms of their glucose response this is groundbreaking because it indicates that some foods create a healthy response in some people and an unhealthy response and others which indicates that a calorie is not just a calorie it shows that we can find foods that work with our physiology and eliminate foods that work against it the diet boxes while mostly well-intentioned lack the precision of personalized nutrition personalizing your nutrition it means you will be able to test specific foods to find out whether or not they are beneficial or harmful for your weight loss / health / fitness journey there may be foods you have deemed bad like rice and potatoes that you’ve been avoiding that your body actually tolerates really well and you would benefit from incorporating to increase diversity in your diet or there may be foods that you have deemed good that actually aren’t very good for your body cutting out or limiting certain foods that your body responds unfavorably to will allow you keep your blood sugar and Abbott in check and make it a lot easier for you to achieve your goals whether they be fat loss muscle gain or just generally being healthier and preventing disease so let’s break this down a little it’s gonna be a lot easier to lose fat and build muscle and just generally change your body if your body is functioning optimally if your body has to spend its energy healing or recovering or repairing itself from some damage it’s gonna be a lot less likely to want to lose fat or build muscle but if everything is optimized your body will be much less resistant to change repeated blood sugar spikes can cause all sorts of non optimal things to happen in the body it can lead to inflammation of blood vessels and organs food that causes blood sugar spikes often makes you feel hungry or faster and if a certain food that appears to be healthy seems to make your glucose spiked that could be an indication that you are intolerant to the food and/or you just have a very hard time breaking down and digesting that food which causes a lot of extra stress on the button and if you’re intolerant to that food that means your body is now spending its energy trying to fight off these little particles of the food that it thinks are foreign invaders and it’s not spending energy trying to accomplish what you’re trying to get it to accomplish none of this is optimal for achieving your goals and if you’re interested in like a more in-depth scientific explanation of how this relates to the gut and stuff definitely go listen to wire to each cuz Rob wolf explains it in many expanded chapters and it makes a lot more sense when he says it so let me go back to the best diet for weight loss it’s the one that’s designed around your body and your individual responses to foods not the diet that works for your best friend not the diet that works for your favorite celebrity or vlogger or Instagram star okay hopefully I’ve made my point that you have to build your own box and I haven’t defended anyone by essentially saying that you know strict to veganism or a strict paleo or whatever you’re doing might not be for you now you’re probably wondering Marissa how long are do I go about finding my perfect diet how do I build my own box where are the hammers and nails well friends just like everything else in health and fitness your number one tool for building your box is patient this might take a while and if your first reaction to that is screw this or you better give us a shortcut I highly recommend you go check out my video on the most important thing to remember when trying to achieve your aesthetic goals I’ll just hit myself in the face but hopefully get up there and down there I’m posting this video now because I have literally just embarked on my own journey to find my own perfect diet and I’m gonna take you with me so that we can figure this all out together for now I will lay out my step-by-step process that I built for myself to figure out my perfect diet but this will be subject to change as I go through this process phase 1 is going to focus around optimizing my gut health so that my body is primed to be sensitive to the different foods so I’ve actually already started this with a three week gut reset diet where the goal is essentially to just kill off any bad bacteria overgrowth that I might have in my gut and replenish all of the good bacteria I have indeed been vlogging this and will explain it more in depth in that video and how to go about it so make sure you subscribe to have notifications turned on etc if you’re interested in that from there I’m gonna go into a three day fast and fasting it gives the good bacteria a break from their digestive duties and allows them to kind of clean up and repopulate it also increases the diversity in your good bacteria and allows your gut to be more resistant to bad bacteria also gonna be blogging this to share my experience and tips so don’t worry yet you won’t miss the struggle that is Marissa doing a three-day bath then I’m gonna go into keto for approximately 5 weeks maybe longer if I feel like it’s going really well and I’m putting this in here because a I really wanted to do keto and after I go past the gut repairing phase I won’t be able to do it for a very long time and be because it actually does have some good gut benefits it forces you to essentially eat more fiber which is really good for the good bacteria and it also forces you to cut out or severely restrict a lot of things that feed the bad bacteria and are bad for your gut so that was phase one of the gut optimization phase and then phase 2 is going to be the elimination diet phase in this faith I’m going to be figuring out exactly which foods I should and should not be eating and I’m considering it maybe ordering one of those intolerance tests but I haven’t come across one that has any extremely good reviews and none of them are 100% accurate so I don’t really know if I want to waste the money on it but I might do it just as a little push in the right direction but regardless of whether or not I do that I’m gonna start with the protocol that Rob Wolfe lays out and it wired to eat which is essentially a paleo diet and doing a seven-day carb test using a glucose monitor and I may extend this a lot past seven days just to test a bunch of different foods but we’ll see from there what I do next is going to be slightly dictated by my results from the Paleo diet and seven-day carb test but I think I’m probably gonna do some sort of modified whole thirty and then to address some more obscure food groups um I do eight low fodmap diet and see how that goes and from there I’ll probably just try to eliminate things that I haven’t done yet like sulfur and thiols phase three is going to be finding the perfect macro ratio now that I have theoretically figured out all the foods I can and can’t eat I’m going to figure out what ratio of macros I should be eating for optimal body functions I get so many questions from people about what their macro ratio should be and most of them are along the lines of is a low carb diet good for you will low carb but make me lose fat faster can I do low carb and I’m just like well some people function really well on low carb some people function really well on low fat it really depends on what your body thrives on if you try low carb and you feel extremely sluggish and tired and your workouts suck that’s probably not gonna be beneficial because you’ll be moving a lot less you won’t be burning as many calories and your whole health is going to suffer because you just don’t have energy on the flip side you might be someone who functions really well on high fat and so doing low carb might actually give you a lot of energy and you’ll feel a lot less sluggish and then it will be really beneficial for weight loss so in this phase I’m gonna eat for a few weeks at the standard macro ratio percentage whatever and log how I feel keep a list of different things and then from there I me they’re gonna go to a low carb high fat or low fat high carb and log how I feel there for me and then do the complete opposite lot how I feel and then whichever one I feel best at I will go in the middle between that and the average and then I’ll slowly work my way to finding out what macro ratio works best for more again I will be making videos about that so if you’ve any specific questions about how to go about finding your perfect macro ratio that will be in those videos so if you follow me along you might have realized that I just laid out about seven or eight months of very carefully planned pretty restrictive diet you might think I’m absolutely crazy why on earth would I subject myself to this I’m already fit and healthy what is the point well I I have said that my whole purpose with my health and fitness journey is to make sure that when I’m 70 or 80 I’m still kicking ass in the gym and lifting weights and benching the heck out of everything and being just super fit and healthy and the best way to ensure that I think is to optimize your diet but also a big part of what is really pushing me and motivating me to do this and stick with it is that I’ve said before I have some weird skin issues that no doctors have been able to figure out and the last month I’ve had one of the worst flare-ups ever it felt like my entire body at greyscale about 80% of my skin it was either red or dry or bumpy or painful and most of it was itchy and a few days into it by the end of the day I was feeling like I had actually been like beaten up and abused and my body actually was covered in bruises and scratches because I had been scratching myself all over so hard and I just had a doctor’s appointment the other day and he was one of the least helpful doctors I have ever spoken to he offered one extremely unhelpful suggestion and then just referred me off to some people the most he could do was refill a medication that I do know makes it go away if I use it consistently for a few days but I have been warned by the people at CVS that if you use it a lot it fins your skin very quickly so in order to fix my skin problem I have to give my skin other problems and I’m honestly just fed up and done with it and no doctors have even tried to look into the root of the issue they just give me some other chemically thing to put on my body so I’m taking matters into my own hands to optimize my diet and hopefully either because my diet will be more optimal I’ll be more healthy and I’ll be able to fight off whatever this is that’s affecting my skin or I will actually eliminate whatever food might be triggering it so what I’m hoping to get out of this is a diet that is best for me and my body and one that prevents my skin from hating me and yes this will have to be changed every few years because your gut microbiome changes which affects what foods you tolerate so this was a very long video but it’s kicking off a new series so I hope you guys liked it
