4 Evidence-Based Benefits of Intermittent Fasting

Subscribe to our free science-based videos at http://bit.ly/anvideos Intermittent fasting has become incredibly popular in the past few years. Many studies show that it has powerful health benefits. 1. Intermittent Fasting Changes The Function of Cells, Genes and Hormones When you don’t eat for a while, several things happen in your body. For example, your body initiates important cellular recycle and repair processes (known as autophagy) and also hormonal changes that make stored body fat more accessible. Human growth hormone levels can increase, which has implications for fat burning and muscle gain and there are beneficial changes in several genes and molecules related to longevity and protection against disease. Many of the benefits of intermittent fasting are related to these changes in hormones, gene expression and function of cells. 2. Intermittent Fasting Can Help You Lose Weight and Belly Fat Generally speaking, intermittent fasting will make you eat fewer meals. That means you will end up taking in fewer calories; unless of course, if you compensate by eating much more during the other meals. Additionally, intermittent fasting enhances hormone function to facilitate weight loss. Lower insulin levels, higher growth hormone levels and increased amounts of norepinephrine (noradrenaline) all increase the breakdown of body fat and facilitate its use for energy. For this reason, short-term fasting has been shown to increase metabolic rate by 3.6-14%, helping you burn even more calories. In other words, intermittent fasting works on both sides of the calorie equation. It boosts your metabolic rate (increases calories out) and reduces the amount of food you eat (reduces calories in). According to a 2014 review of the scientific literature, intermittent fasting can cause weight loss of 3-8% over 3-24 weeks. This is a huge amount. The people also lost 4-7% of their waist circumference, which indicates that they lost lots of belly fat, the harmful fat in the abdominal cavity that causes disease. 3. Intermittent Fasting Can Reduce Insulin Resistance, Lowering Your Risk of Type 2 Diabetes The main feature of type 2 diabetes is high blood sugar levels in the context of insulin resistance. Anything that reduces insulin resistance should help lower blood sugar levels and protect against type 2 diabetes. This is where intermittent fasting has been impressive. In human studies on intermittent fasting, fasting blood sugar has been reduced by 3-6%, while fasting insulin has been reduced by 20-31%. One study in diabetic rats also showed that intermittent fasting protected against kidney damage, one of the most severe complications of diabetes. This certainly suggests that intermittent fasting may be highly protective for people who are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. However - and this is an important however - there may be some differences between genders. One study in women showed that blood sugar control actually worsened after a 22-day long intermittent fasting protocol. Whether there are gender differences for the other health benefits, including weight loss, remains to be seen, but it's definitely something to keep in mind. 4. Intermittent Fasting May Extend Your Lifespan, Helping You Live Longer One of the most exciting applications of intermittent fasting may be its ability to extend lifespan. Studies in rats have shown that intermittent fasting extends lifespan in a similar way as continuous calorie restriction. In some of these studies, the effects were quite dramatic. In one of them, rats that fasted every other day lived 83% longer than rats who weren’t fasted. Although this is far from being proven in humans, intermittent fasting has become very popular among the anti-aging crowd. Given the known benefits for metabolism and all sorts of health markers, and autophagy as well, it makes sense that intermittent fasting could help you live a longer and healthier life.

What Is Ezekiel Bread and Is It Healthy?

Subscribe to our free science-based videos: http://bit.ly/anvideos In contrast to most commercial breads - which consist primarily of refined wheat or pulverized whole wheat, plus added sugar - Ezekiel bread is made of several different types of grains and legumes, and no added sugar. But the biggest benefit of Ezekiel bread is not just its blend of ingredients, but rather that its ingredients are sprouted first. Sprouting, which is soaking the grains in water and allowing them to germinate, causes a number of biochemical reactions in the grain. This has two huge benefits: It increases the amount of healthy nutrients, and reduces the amount of harmful anti-nutrients in the grain. STUDIES: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17497874, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11474896 Studies show that sprouting wheat may lead to significant increases in soluble fiber, folate, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Beta-Carotene. STUDY: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2692609 Sprouting also partially breaks down the starch, which leaves sprouted grains with slightly less carbohydrate. Sprouting grains can also increase their content of the amino acid lysine, which is a building block of protein. Combined with the addition of legumes, this increases the protein quality of Ezekiel bread somewhat. Sprouted grains also have lower amounts of anti-nutrients, which are substances that inhibit the absorption of certain beneficial nutrients. Phytic Acid is a substance found in grains and many other foods. It can bind minerals like Zinc, Calcium, Magnesium and Iron and prevent them from being absorbed. Enzyme inhibitors are present in seeds, which protect them from spontaneously germinating but may also make the nutrients in them harder to access. Sprouting inactivates some of them. Sprouting also reduces the amount of gluten in the grain, a protein that many people are sensitive to. I should point out that it still contains gluten though, so Ezekiel bread is out of the question for people with celiac disease or strong gluten sensitivity. So there you have it, if you’re not on a carb restricted diet and not gluten sensitive, then Ezekiel bread can be a healthier choice to commercial bread. But remember at the end of the day, Ezekiel bread is still bread. For optimal nutrition, you may be better to cut down on bread and other processed foods altogether.

How Many Eggs Can You Eat in a Day? The Surprising Truth
 
02:15
Subscribe now for more about eggs and other topics: https://www.youtube.com/user/AuthorityNutrition?sub_confirmation=1 For many decades, people have been advised to limit their consumption of eggs, because the yolk is high in cholesterol. It was thought that if you ate cholesterol, it would raise cholesterol in the blood and contribute to heart disease... That was wrong. The liver actually produces large amounts of cholesterol each day. When we eat more eggs, the liver just produces less cholesterol instead, so it basically evens out. It appears that the response to whole egg consumption depends on the individual. In the vast majority of people, it has no effect on Total or LDL cholesterol. The exception is some who are genetically susceptible, but even then it is debatable if the cholesterol increase actually influences heart disease risk. The 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans has dropped the limit on dietary cholesterol. The government's expert panel has now said that dietary cholesterol is no longer a "nutrient of concern." How Much is Too Much? Unfortunately, we don’t have studies where people are fed more than 3 eggs per day, or 21 eggs per week. It is possible (although unlikely) that eating even more than that could have a detrimental effect on health. Eating more than 3 is uncharted territory, so to speak. It’s also important to keep in mind that not all eggs are the same. The healthiest are omega-3 enriched eggs, or eggs from hens that are raised on pasture. These eggs are much higher in omega-3s and important fat-soluble vitamins. So if you eat 3 per day, these small nutritional differences may start to add up over time. Overall, the science shows that eating eggs is perfectly safe, even if you’re eating up to 3 whole eggs per day. Government recommendations have finally caught up too.

What Are Sugar Alcohols and Are They Healthy?
 
04:04
https://authoritynutrition.com/ As the name implies, sugar alcohols (or “polyols”) are like hybrids of sugar molecules and alcohol molecules. Despite the “alcohol” part of the name, they do not contain any ethanol, the compound that gets you drunk, so they are safe for alcoholics or those who abstain from alcohol. Because they have a similar chemical structure as sugar, they are able to activate the sweet taste receptors on the tongue. But unlike artificial and low-calorie sweeteners, sugar alcohols do still contain calories; just fewer than regular sugar. There are many different types commonly used as sweeteners, including xylitol, erythritol, sorbitol and maltitol to name a few. One of the main benefits of using them is they are generally very low on the glycemic index, which is a measure of how quickly foods raise blood sugar levels. Most sugar alcohols have a negligible effect on blood sugar levels. In the case of erythritol and mannitol, the glycemic index is zero. The only exception is maltitol, which has a glycemic index of 36. This is still very low compared to sugar and refined carbohydrates. So for people with metabolic syndrome, pre-diabetes or diabetes, sugar alcohols (except perhaps maltitol), can be considered as excellent alternatives to sugar. Another benefit of sugar alcohols is they don't rot your teeth, unlike excess sugar consumption. In fact, xylitol, erythritol and sorbitol actually protect against tooth decay. That’s one of the main reasons they are so popular in many chewing gums and toothpastes. The weight of evidence indicates xylitol is the most beneficial, however, one 3-year study in 485 school children found that erythritol was more protective against dental caries than xylitol and sorbitol. Now sugar alcohols are sounding pretty wonderful right now, however they can cause digestive problems, especially when consumed in large amounts. The body can not digest most sugar alcohols, so they travel to the large intestine where they are metabolized by the gut bacteria. This leads to symptoms like gas, bloating and diarrhea. If you have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or a sensitivity to FODMAPs, then you may want to consider avoiding sugar alcohols completely. Sorbitol and maltitol appear to be the biggest offenders, while erythritol causes the least symptoms. One other important thing, while Xylitol is well tolerated by humans, it is highly toxic to dogs. When dogs eat xylitol, their bodies think that it is sugar and start producing large amounts of insulin. When insulin goes up, the dog’s cells starts pulling sugar from the bloodstream. This can lead to hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and can be downright fatal. If you own a dog, keep xylitol out of reach, or out of your house altogether. If you want to learn more about sugar alcohols you can click the YouTube card or follow the link in the video description. But in case you're wondering, erythritol seems to be the best sugar alcohol overall. It has almost no calories, no effect on blood sugar and causes significantly fewer digestive problems than the others. It is also good for your teeth, and won’t hurt your dog; plus, it tastes pretty awesome. It’s basically just like sugar without the calories.

How Much Sugar Should I Eat Per Day?
 
03:18
https://authoritynutrition.com/ So can we eat a little bit of sugar each day without harm, or should we avoid it as much as possible? To answer this question, it's very important to make the distinction between added sugars and natural sugars. Whole foods like fruits and vegetables contain water, fiber and various micronutrients. In this context the naturally occurring sugars are absolutely fine. However, added sugars are those that are added to food products. The most common added sugars are regular table sugar (sucrose) or high fructose corn syrup. If you want to lose weight and optimize your health, you should limit or avoid foods that contain added sugars. So in terms of added sugars, which can be harmful, most people can eat a little bit without harm, while others should avoid it as much as possible. It really depends on the individual, which is why it's hard to say what is a safe amount for each person. According to the AHA, men should eat a maximum of 9 teaspoons per day (37 grams), and women 6 teaspoons (25 grams). The WHO has much stricter guidelines and recommends no more than 10 grams of added sugar per day for men and women, which is a little over 2 teaspoons. To put that into perspective, one 12 oz regular can of coke contains 10 teaspoons of sugar, while a regular sized snickers or mars bar contains about 6 teaspoons. Honestly, if you are healthy, lean and active, you’ll probably burn off these small amounts of sugar without them causing you much harm. But if you are very overweight, diabetic or have some other diet-related metabolic health issues then you should aim for little to no added sugar in your diet. Ultimately they don’t serve any physiological purpose in our bodies so the less you eat, the healthier you'll be. So, what's the easiest and most effective way to reduce your intake of added sugars. In rough order of importance, avoid soft drinks (sodas), fruit juices, candies and lollies, baked sweets (like cakes), fruits canned in syrup, flavored "low-fat" or diet foods, and dried fruits. Drink water as your main beverage and don’t add sugar to your coffee or tea. Depending on the recipe, good alternatives to sugar may be things like cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, or sweeteners like stevia. At the end of the day, natural sugars in fruits and vegetables are completely fine, but we should all limit our added sugar consumption. Some people can handle a little bit, but for others it can lead to binge eating, weight gain and disease. Personally I like the WHO recommendation of 10 grams maximum of added sugar per day, or 70 grams per week. It's very strict, but that way even if you fall short, your intake will almost certainly fall within the American Heart Association guidelines.

Decaf Coffee: Healthy or Unhealthy?
 
03:04
Subscribe to our free science-based videos: http://bit.ly/anvideos Decaf is short for decaffeinated coffee. It's coffee from coffee beans that have had at least 97% of their caffeine removed. So it's not completely caffeine free. There are many safe ways to remove caffeine from raw coffee beans. Most of them include water, organic solvents or carbon dioxide. This process leaves the nutritional value of decaf similar to regular coffee, apart from the caffeine content. So there's no issues with the caffeine removal process itself, but how does the end product compare to the health benefits of regular coffee? Regular coffee is the biggest source of antioxidants in the Western diet, more than we get from fruits and vegetables combined. Antioxidants are molecules thought to help protect against numerous lifestyle diseases, such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease. STUDY: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20664622 Decaf usually contains similar amounts of antioxidants to regular coffee, although some studies have found levels can be up to 15% lower due to losses in the decaffeination process. Despite this potential small drop in antioxidants, numerous studies have found strong associations between decaf coffee consumption and health benefits. STUDIES: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23193459, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24459154 Drinking coffee, both regular and decaf, has been linked with reduced risk of type 2 diabetes. Each daily cup may reduce the risk up to 7%. STUDY: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25124935 The effects of decaf on liver function are not as well studied as regular coffee, but one large observational study linked decaf with reduced liver enzyme levels, which suggests a protective effect. STUDY: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18559841 Drinking decaf has also been linked with a small but significant reduction in the risk of premature death, as well as death from stroke or heart disease. STUDIES: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22353630, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19028509 Both regular and decaf coffee also seem to have positive effects on age-related mental decline, with human cell studies showing decaf may protect neurons in the brain. This could help prevent the development of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Where regular coffee has the greatest edge over decaf is all the health effects associated with caffeine, obviously. Things like improved energy, mood, metabolic rate, and athletic performance. But otherwise decaf coffee is still a great choice if you are sensitive to caffeine or have a medical condition that will benefit from a caffeine-restricted diet. It's perfectly safe and carries most of the same benefits as regular coffee, just without the caffeine side effects.

5 Healthy Alternatives to Conventional Wheat Bread
 
02:55
https://authoritynutrition.com/ In this video we're looking at some convenient and healthy alternatives to bread. There are recipe links in the description below. 1. Ezekiel Bread Ezekiel bread is a really healthy bread made with several types of sprouted grains and legumes. The grains are allowed to sprout before processing, which makes the end product much more nutritious and easily digestible. It also contains no added sugar, but it does still contain gluten. So if you are sensitive to gluten, Ezekiel bread is not the best option for you. 2. Oopsie Bread Oopsie bread is one of the simplest and most popular low-carb breads. It can be made from only eggs, cream cheese and salt, although some recipes add more ingredients. It's quite easy to make, and delicious as a bun for burgers or served with toppings like you would toast. 3. Rye Bread This bread is made from rye, a type of grain that is related to wheat. It is darker and denser than regular bread, as well as much higher in fiber. But this also gives it a stronger, more unique flavor that may be an acquired taste. Some rye breads are a mixed blend of rye and wheat, so they are a little lighter and have a mild, sweet flavor. But keep in mind that rye bread still contains some gluten. 4. Corn Tortillas Tortillas can be made with either wheat or corn, but corn tortillas are higher in fiber and gluten-free, making them a great option for people who are sensitive to gluten. You can use corn tortillas in sandwiches, wraps, burgers, pizzas or simply with toppings like vegetables and cheese. It's also easy to make corn tortillas yourself because they contain only two ingredients: water and a Mexican flour called Masa. 5. Lettuce and Leafy Greens Big-leafed greens like iceberg lettuce or romaine lettuce are also a great substitute for bread or wraps. The large leaf can be used as a wrap to hold everything together, while you fill it with toppings like meat or veggies. They are extremely fresh and dramatically lower in calories than bread-based wraps. Now if you want to try make any of these wheat bread alternatives, you can find links to a bunch of different recipes in the video description. As you can see there are tasty and nutritious alternatives to regular wheat bread. Making the change shouldn't be difficult, but it will probably be a bit more time consuming at first. So experiment with these and find the one you enjoy eating and that fits into your lifestyle.

Is Peanut Butter Good For You, or Bad?
 
02:39
https://authoritynutrition.com/ Real peanut butter is a relatively unprocessed food. It’s pretty much just roasted peanuts that are ground until they turn into peanut butter. Many commercial brands of peanut butter have loads of vegetable oil, sugar and other ingredients added. These are definitely not good for you. In this video I'm referring to real peanut butter, which is basically only peanuts, perhaps mixed in with a bit of salt. So it basically has all the properties of eating whole peanuts. Now about 72% of the calories in peanut butter come from fat, with 15% from protein, and 13% from carbohydrate. This classifies it as a very high calorie food, but also a great vegetarian source of protein. It's also a pretty good source of important vitamins and minerals and fiber, but not nearly as nutritious as fruit and vegetables when comparing calorie for calorie. Even though peanut butter is quite nutritious, there have been some concerns over a potentially harmful substance in peanuts called aflotoxins. Some studies in humans have linked aflatoxin exposure to liver and kidney cancer. But there is good news… according to one source, the processing of peanuts into peanut butter reduces the aflatoxins by 89%. Additionally, the USDA monitors the amounts of aflatoxins in foods and makes sure that they don’t go over recommended limits. The other potential issue is that about 30% of the fats in peanut butter are omega-6 fatty acids. Excessive Omega-6s in the diet are associated with inflammation and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Most people are already eating too many Omega-6s, and too few Omega-3s, which are thought to be protective. Commercial peanut butter contains vegetable oil which adds even more Omega-6. Overall peanut butter is fairly rich in nutrients and fiber, and a decent source of protein. But it is a large source of omega-6 fats, a potential source of aflatoxins, and perhaps most importantly very calorie-dense. If you eat only small amounts at a time, then it's quite neutral for health. But if you eat a lot, and you want to lose weight, then it's a habit you ought to change.

Top Health Benefits of Kombucha
 
03:19
Subscribe to our free science-based videos: http://bit.ly/anvideos Kombucha is a fermented tea that has all sorts of powerful health benefits. Here are the top health benefits of kombucha. 1. Kombucha is a Rich Source of Probiotics Kombucha is made by adding specific strains of bacteria, yeast and sugar to black or green tea, and then allowing it to ferment for a week or more. During fermentation, the bacteria and yeast form a mushroom-like blob on the surface, which is why kombucha is also known as “mushroom tea”. This blob is actually a living symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast, or a "SCOBY", and can be used to ferment new kombucha. The fermentation process produces vinegar and several other acidic compounds, trace levels of alcohol, gases that make it carbonated, as well as large amounts of probiotic bacteria. STUDIES: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22127952, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23886977 Probiotics provide your gut with healthy bacteria, which can improve many aspects of health, including digestion, inflammation and even weight loss. For this reason, adding probiotic foods like kombucha to your diet can improve your health in many ways. 2. Kombucha Contains the Antioxidant Benefits of Green Tea Green tea contains many bioactive compounds, such as polyphenols, which function as powerful antioxidants in the body. This is what makes it one of the healthiest beverages on the planet. Kombucha made from green tea has many of the same chemical properties and therefore many of the same benefits. STUDIES: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17557985, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23803878 Studies show that drinking green tea regularly can increase the amount of calories you burn, reduce belly fat, help with blood sugar control and may even reduce your risk of certain cancers . 3. Kombucha May Reduce Heart Disease Risk Heart disease is the world’s leading cause of death. Rat studies find that kombucha can greatly improve two markers of heart health, LDL and HDL cholesterol, in as little as 30 days. Tea (especially green tea) protects LDL cholesterol particles from oxidation, which is thought to contribute to heart disease. STUDY: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18641205 In fact, green tea drinkers have up to a 31% lower risk of developing heart disease, a benefit that should also be seen from drinking kombucha. 4. Kombucha May Help Manage Type 2 Diabetes Type 2 diabetes affects over 300 million people worldwide. It's characterized by high blood sugar levels and insulin resistance. STUDY: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22591682 A study in diabetic rats found that kombucha slowed down the digestion of carbs, which reduced blood sugar levels. It also improved liver and kidney function. Kombucha made from green tea is likely to be even more beneficial, as green tea itself has been shown to reduce blood sugar levels. STUDY: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20008687 In fact, a review study of almost 300,000 individuals found that green tea drinkers had an 18% lower risk of becoming diabetic. So there you have it, Kombucha is a probiotic-rich tea with many health benefits. You can make it yourself at home but you have to be very careful to prepare it properly. The much safer option is to buy it in store.

The Impressive Health Benefits of Eggs
 
03:00
Subscribe to our free science-based videos: http://bit.ly/anvideos Eggs are among the very few foods you could actually classify as a "superfood." They are rich in all sorts of nutrients, many of which are lacking in the modern diet. Here are the top 4 health benefits of eggs. 1. Eggs Are Incredibly Nutritious Eggs are among the most nutritious foods on the planet. A whole egg contains all the nutrients required to turn a single cell into a chicken. A single large boiled egg contains: Folate: 5% of the RDA. Vitamin A: 6% of the RDA. Vitamin B5: 7% of the RDA. Vitamin B12: 9% of the RDA. Phosphorus: 9% of the RDA. Vitamin B2: 15% of the RDA. Selenium: 22% of the RDA. Eggs also contain decent amounts of Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Calcium and Zinc. 2. Eggs Are High in Quality Protein Proteins and their amino acids are the main building blocks of the human body. They’re used to make all sorts of tissues and molecules that serve both structural and functional purposes. Eggs are an excellent source of protein, with a single large egg containing 6 grams. Eggs contain all the essential amino acids in the right ratios, so our bodies are well equipped to make full use of the protein in them. Studies show eating adequate protein can help with weight loss, increase muscle mass, lower blood pressure and optimize bone health… to name a few. 3. Eggs Contain Lutein and Zeaxanthin, Antioxidants That Have Major Benefits For Eye Health As we age, eyesight tends to get worse. There are several nutrients that help counteract this degenerative process. Two of these are called Lutein and Zeaxanthin, powerful antioxidants that tend to build up in the retina of the eye. Studies show that consuming adequate amounts of these nutrients can significantly reduce the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration, two very common eye disorders. Egg yolks actually contain large amounts of both Lutein and Zeaxanthin. In one controlled trial, eating just 1.3 egg yolks per day for 4.5 weeks increased blood levels of Lutein by 28-50% and Zeaxanthin by 114-142%. Eggs are also high in Vitamin A, which deserves another mention here. Vitamin A deficiency is the most common cause of blindness in the world. 4. Eggs Are Highly Fulfilling and Can Make You Eat Fewer Calories As mentioned eggs are a high protein food… and protein is by far the most fulfilling macronutrient. Eggs score high on a scale called the Satiety Index, which measures the ability of foods to induce feelings of fullness and reduce subsequent calorie intake. In one study of 30 overweight women, eating eggs instead of bagels for breakfast increased feelings of fullness and made them automatically eat fewer calories for the next 36 hours. In another study, replacing a bagel breakfast with an egg breakfast caused significant weight loss over a period of 8 weeks. As you can see there are numerous benefits to eating more eggs. They are pretty much nature’s perfect food. On top of everything else, they are also cheap, easy to prepare, and taste awesome.

4 High-Carb Foods That Are Actually Super Healthy
 
03:37
https://authoritynutrition.com/ Although cutting carbs can be beneficial for some people, this certainly does not mean that all high-carb foods are “bad.” Here are 4 high-carb foods that are actually incredibly healthy. 1. Oats Oats may be the healthiest whole grain food on the planet. Raw oats contain 66% carbs, and nearly 11% of that is fiber. They are particularly high in a powerful soluble fiber called beta-glucan which helps you feel full for longer. They are also a great source of many vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They are even a relatively good source of protein, containing more than most other grains. Many studies have shown that oats may reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol levels, particularly LDL. Eating oats may also lower blood sugar levels in diabetics, at least after meals. 2. Sweet Potatoes Sweet potatoes are a nutritious tuber, and they are delicious. Cooked sweet potatoes contain about 18–21% carbs. This carb content consists of starch, sugar and fiber. They are a rich source of potassium, vitamin A (from beta-carotene), vitamin C, and antioxidants. I find it very interesting that until about 60 years ago in Okinawa, an island in Japan, 69% of an Okinawan’s caloric intake came from sweet potatoes alone. And they now have the greatest proportion of centenarians (people over 100 years old) in the world. 3. Kidney Beans Kidney beans are a variety of the common bean and part of the legume family. Cooked kidney beans contain 22.8% carbs, in the form of starches and fiber. They are also high in protein which makes them quite filling. They are rich in many vitamins, minerals and plant compounds, including beneficial antioxidants. They are linked with numerous health benefits, but just make sure to never eat them raw, because raw or improperly cooked kidney beans can be toxic. Unfortunately they are also high in short-chain carbohydrates known as FODMAPs. These can cause digestive stress if you eat too much at once, or in those who are intolerant. 4. Quinoa This is a nutritious seed that has become incredibly popular in the natural health community. It's classified as a pseudocereal, so a seed that is prepared and eaten like a grain. Although cooked quinoa is 21% carbs, it's still a good source of protein and fiber. This makes it quite filling and an excellent addition to an effective weight loss diet. Quinoa is also rich in many minerals and plant compounds, and has been linked to several health benefits like improved blood sugar control. It doesn't contain any gluten either which makes it a popular alternative for those who don't tolerate gluten. Now don't get me wrong, processed junk foods high in sugar and refined grains are definitely unhealthy and fattening. But as you can see, whole, fiber-rich foods that just so happen to be high in carbohydrates are some of the world's healthiest foods, period.

What Is The Best Oil For Deep-Frying?
 
03:22
The best oils to use for frying and deep-frying. Click here to subscribe to our channel (takes 2 seconds): https://www.youtube.com/user/AuthorityNutrition?sub_confirmation=1 Some oils can withstand much higher temperatures than others. This is actually a key factor for choosing the best oil. Choose oils that are stable and don’t react with oxygen when heated. They should have a smoke point of greater than 450°F or 230°C. That is, the point at which is start to burn and smoke. Oils that are mostly saturated and monounsaturated fats tend to be the most stable, while oils high in polyunsaturated fats tend to be more fragile. This is because polyunsaturated fats contain two (or more) double bonds in their chemical structure, which react to high high heat. And then taste obviously matters as well. Oils that have a “neutral” flavor are generally preferred when deep frying. So which is best then? Well there's several good choices really, the first is coconut oil, which is about 90% saturated fat. Research has shown that even after 8 hours of continuous deep frying at 365°F (180°C), the quality of coconut oil does not deteriorate. Note that refined oils tend to have a higher smoke point and more neutral taste than unrefined versions, so although unrefined coconut oil performs quite well, the best choice with regards to safety and quality when deep frying is actually refined. Olive oil is another that does very well under deep-frying conditions, this time because of its high monounsaturated fat content. Studies show it can be heated or used in a deep fryer for over 24 hours before it starts oxidizing. Again, refined olive oil has a higher smoke point and more neutral taste than unrefined varieties like extra virgin. So extra virgin is fine for baking and regular frying, but with deep frying refined is the better choice. Animal fats are also great choices for deep frying, particularly ghee and beef tallow. Some say they add a unique crispiness when deep fried, just don't use butter at high temperatures because it contains trace amounts of carbs and protein that burn. Avocado oil is also great, and has a similar fatty acid composition to olive oil. It has an extremely high smoke point upwards of 500°F or 260°C. However it does have a bit of a stronger taste, and typically is more expensive. Lastly I need to clarify that deep fried foods should not be common place in our diet. Because compared to other cooking methods, like baking or grilling, it adds a lot of calories to your food. For example a roasted chicken wing contains approximately 100 calories, whereas a deep-fried chicken wing contains 160 calories. That's 60% extra calories eating the same thing. So by all means enjoy the occasional deep-fried treat, but don't go overboard.

4 Natural Sweeteners That Are Super Healthy
 
03:29
https://authoritynutrition.com/ Luckily there are quite a few sweeteners found in nature that are actually quite good for health. This video looks at 4 at the healthiest. 1. Stevia Stevia is a very popular low-calorie sweetener. It's extracted from the leaves of the South American Stevia plant. There are several sweet compounds found in Stevia leaves, the main ones are Stevioside and Rebaudioside A. Both are many hundred times sweeter than sugar, gram for gram, but have virtually no calories. Some studies in humans have shown Stevia to have health benefits. When blood pressure is high, Stevia can lower it by 6-14%. However, it has no effect on blood pressure that is normal or only mildly elevated. Stevia has been shown to lower blood sugar levels in diabetics, at least short term. 2. Erythritol Erythritol is a sugar alcohol that is found naturally in certain fruits, and also used as a low-calorie sweetener. Sugar alcohols are like hybrids of a carbohydrate and an alcohol molecule- it doesn’t contain any ethanol though so doesn't make you drunk. Erythritol contains 0.24 calories per gram, or about 6% of the calories as sugar, with 70% of the sweetness. It doesn't spike blood sugar or insulin levels and has no effect on biomarkers like cholesterol or triglycerides. Erythritol tastes very much like sugar, although it can have a mild aftertaste. And while studies show that it's safe, it can cause digestive issues if you consume too much at a time. 3. Xylitol Xylitol is also a sugar alcohol with a sweetness similar to sugar. It contains 2.4 calories per gram, or about 2/3rds of the caloric value of sugar. Studies have shown it has some benefits for dental health, and may also improve bone density, helping to prevent osteoporosis. It doesn’t raise blood sugar or insulin levels. But as with other sugar alcohols, it can cause digestive side effects at high doses. Oh, and it's highly toxic to dogs, so you might want Xylitol out of the house if you have a dog. 4. Yacon Syrup Yacon syrup is harvested from the Yacon plant, which grows natively in the Andes in South America. This sweetener has recently become popular as a weight loss supplement, because one study found it caused significant weight loss in overweight women. While it's promising, one study on its own doesn't count for much. But what makes yacon syrup stand out is the high fructooligosaccharide content, which function as soluble fibers that feed the good bacteria in the intestine. It can help against constipation and has various benefits due to the high amount of soluble fiber. Don’t eat too much at a time though, as it may cause digestive problems. There are several popular sweeteners that health conscious people often eat instead of sugar. This includes coconut sugar, molasses, honey and maple syrup. In reality they really aren't much different from regular sugar. If you are heavily overweight or insulin resistant, large amounts of any of these is not good for you. That's not to say they are harmful for everyone though. In the context of a healthy, real food based diet, small amounts of these natural sugars won’t cause harm.

5 High-Fat Foods That Are Actually Super Healthy
 
04:33
https://authoritynutrition.com/ Studies now show that fat, including saturated fat, is not the devil that it was made out to be. In this video we're looking at 5 high-fat foods that are actually incredibly healthy and nutritious. 1. Nuts Nuts are not only rich in healthy fats, but also high in fiber and a good plant-based source of protein. In this instance nuts refers to tree nuts, like almonds, cashews, walnuts and more. As opposed to peanuts, which are actually legumes that grow in the ground, although they're really healthy too. Nuts are generally also high in vitamin E, as well as magnesium, a mineral that is reportedly the second most common deficiency in the developed world after vitamin d. Studies show those who eat nuts tend to be healthier, and have a lower risk of various diseases. This includes heart disease and type 2 diabetes. And despite being high in calories, those who eat them the most appear to be the leanest and at lower risk of obesity in the long-term. 2. Extra Virgin Olive Oil This is a high-fat (or pure fat) food that almost everyone agrees is healthy. It's an essential component of the Mediterranean diet, which has been shown to have numerous health benefits in large studies. EVOO contains good amounts of vitamins E and K, and is loaded with antioxidants that fight inflammation and help protect LDL particles in the blood from becoming oxidized. It has also been shown to lower blood pressure, improve cholesterol markers and have numerous other benefits related to heart disease risk. 3. Avocados The avocado is different from most other fruits, in that instead of primarily containing carbs, avocados are loaded with fats. Avocados are about 77% fat, by calories, making them even higher in fat than most animal foods. The main fatty acid is a monounsaturated fat called oleic acid, which is the predominant one in olive oil as well. It's associated with various health benefits. They're also among the best sources of potassium in the diet and a great source of fiber too. And even though they are high in fat and calories, one study found that people who eat avocados tend to weigh less and have less belly fat than those who don’t. 4. Whole Eggs Whole eggs used to be considered unhealthy because the yolks are high in cholesterol and fat. However, new studies have shown that cholesterol in eggs doesn’t affect the cholesterol in the blood, at least not in the majority of people. What we’re left with is a high-fat food loaded with vitamins and minerals. In fact, eggs contain a little bit of almost every single nutrient we need most of which is in the yolk. They even contain powerful antioxidants that protect the eyes, and lots of choline, a brain nutrient that 90% of people don’t get enough of. Eggs can also be considered a weight loss friendly food because of their protein content. Studies have shown that people who replace a grain-based breakfast with eggs end up eating fewer calories and losing weight. 5. Dark Chocolate Dark chocolate is one of those rare health foods that actually taste incredible. But it is very high in fat, accounting for around 65% of calories. The reason it's so healthy is because dark chocolate is 11% fiber and contains over 50% of the RDA for iron, magnesium, copper and manganese. It's also loaded with antioxidants, so much that it is one of the highest scoring foods tested, even outranking blueberries in one study. There are studies linking dark chocolate consumption to a wide spectrum of health benefits, but the most notable is heart health. Research shows those who eat dark chocolate 5 or more times per week are less than half as likely to die from heart disease, compared to people who don’t eat dark chocolate. These healthy high fat foods are really just the tip of the iceberg. There's many others like cheese, fatty fish and full-fat yogurt that can really contribute to a healthy diet.

5 Epic Health Benefits of Green Tea
 
04:05
https://authoritynutrition.com 1. Compounds in Green Tea Can Improve Brain Function and Make You Smarter Green tea contains caffeine, which is a known stimulant that can temporarily heighten brain function. But it also contains the amino acid L-theanine which gives it an edge over coffee. L-theanine crosses the blood-brain barrier and increases the activity of neurotransmitters, dopamine and the production of alpha waves in the brain. More importantly, studies show that caffeine and L-theanine can have synergistic effects. That is, the combination of the two has unique effects on brain function. This includes subtle improvements to alertness, attention and perhaps sensory outcomes. Many people also report having more stable energy and being much more productive when they drink green tea, compared to coffee. 2. Green Tea May Protect Your Brain in Old Age Not only can green tea improve brain function in the short term, it may also protect your brain as we grow older. Alzheimer’s and Parkinson's disease are the most common neurodegenerative diseases in humans. Multiple studies show that the catechin compounds in green tea can have various protective effects on neurons, potentially lowering the risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. But this has only been shown in test tubes and animal studies so far, not in humans. Until then we can't say for sure, but it's highly plausible. 3. Green Tea Reduces Risk of Cardiovascular Disease Cardiovascular diseases, including heart disease and stroke, are the biggest causes of death in the world. Studies show that green tea can improve some of the main risk factors for these diseases, particularly high blood pressure and high LDL cholesterol. Green tea catechins appear to be the active ingredients here, with review studies consistently finding improvements. Interestingly a study in over 19,000 middle-aged and older Chinese people found that those who drank the most green tea were 11% less likely to get heart disease during the 5 year study period. 4. Green Tea May Lower Your Risk of Type 2 Diabetes Type 2 diabetes now afflicts about 300 million people worldwide, and involves having elevated blood sugar levels in the context of insulin resistance. Studies often show that green tea can improve insulin sensitivity and reduce blood sugar levels. As with the heart health benefits Green tea catechins are heavily involved. According to a review of 7 studies with a total of 286,701 individuals, green tea drinkers had an 18% lower risk of becoming diabetic. Of course this is observational and doesn't prove cause and effect, but something is definitely going on with its effects on overall metabolic health. 5. Green Tea May Extend Your Lifespan, Helping You Live Longer Given that green tea drinkers are at a lower risk of cardiovascular-related health problems, it makes sense that it could help you live longer. In an observational study of 40,530 Japanese adults, those who drank the most green tea (5 or more cups per day) were significantly less likely to die during an 11 year period. - Death of all causes: 23% lower in women, 12% lower in men. - Death from heart disease: 31% lower in women, 22% lower in men. - Death from stroke: 42% lower in women, 35% lower in men. Another Japanese study of almost 100,000 middle-aged and older adults found that those who drank the most green tea were roughly 15% less likely to die from heart disease during the 19-year study period. The perks of green tea are pretty impressive huh. So then the question remains, if you don't drink green tea, and it's available to you, why not?
