You hear the things fat 43 the low fat the fluteen free. Who is the king of all. Who gets like which is the one that matters most gluten free. Only if you have sill ybing disease. That's the thing. For most people who don't have a wheat allergy gluten free we learn over on that one that it could be worse for you. Because theory placing a wheat flour with almond flour or more calorie dense flour in many cases. So again you just really have to reed labels what it comes did you know to because you don't want to be eating all the extra calorie to be gluten free if you don't need to be. I have to get a ciliac test. I have to. Start with this. I feel it now. Okay. So a lot of people will eat the salad for lunch and get a fat free dressing but often the fat free dressing are so full of sugar that you would be much better off getting the full fat dressing because oils are not bad for you if it's good oil. What I like to do to lighten it up because I don't want the calorie in my vegetable I take just plain balsamic vinegar to full fat dressing so I control how much ratio but it's juice year because other herb and ingredient in it. All the dressing. Healthy. But you need to go on liquid type dressing stay away from ranch the creamy yes. What you just said at the core of Katie couric. Had them on yesterday low fat the low fat sure they to the low fat but add sugar. Right. Yes. A lot of the food that I make like I lost 70 pounds and kept it off for 20 years so I do lower fat things because then it has less calorie over all also but again you don't want to do it when it's sugar. Like replacing whole ingwhole ingredient big difference. Talk bread. Okay so would you order the wheat bread or the spinachtor Ty 8. Wheat bread. Wheat bread. Well good. You guys know. A lot of people think the spinach will have a lot of vegetable in it and then these wrap when you get them in restaurants in order for them to get all the filling in there they are 320 calorie just for the tortilla. Itself. Really. Is there really some kind of trace of spinach in it. There is a tiny also trace. But no more fiber in this than there is in this and again. Stick with the wheat bread. One gram of fat so eat the bread. 200 for. That 320 and again not for the whole sandwich just for the bred portion. Turkey burger or sir loin bigger I have to think Turkey is. This is all white meat Turkey burger. All white doesn't mean that there isn't added fat and there is. No dark meat but they put Turkey fat in it. So in this case this all white meat this all white meat Turkey burger and sir loin burger have the exact calorie and fat in them. Would I rather have the sir So if eating Turkey because you prefer Turkey get that. If eating. How do you tell I How do you tell if the burger doesn't have the added fat and stuff. You have to at restaurant you have to ask but when Reading the panels. Good to the grocery store and grab the packages because all white meat the one that I had is 15 gram of fat for 4 ounce patty that's 8 ounce. Super lean 99 percent thing. Right. Then it doesn't taste good. Rice versus potato. I eat potato twice a week but I think the rice is bet. Actually no. Especially in a restaurant because baked potato baked without anything open them and put a tiny bit of oil on the outside that they sometimes do in restaurants, 90 calorie for 6 ounce potato 8 ounce so 120 calorie then I eat witness ketchup which a lot of people laugh meat but you put it on French fry. There's should go after. Some ketchup do you are right. Go low sugar ketchup. Yes. Or use a little bit but as opposed to sour cream or butter. That's what I do. Hot sauce. I do broccoli. That's good. And the problem with the rice in restaurant they put tons of butter or oil on it so it doesn't stick together and so you are probably eating like 400 calorie in rice. Don't manufacture coming up. Which one of these will make you lose weight. Answer is neither but we find out which Wrap it up biggest loser chef here's the war between the gluten free Turkey and the chocolate dip strawberry. The funny thing is these are commute inn free so have two for 150 calorie or the chemical cookie for 1 yichlt it doesn't look good. Strawberry win. Yes they do. Wait a minute. Peanut butter my favorite food. There's more of the swap on my face back page and then also so you know I made a cheeseburger and put it on your web site. Winner regular peanut butter. Yes. Over this. Because reduced fat has the same number of camp rebut just sugar. Devin thank you.
