Get Rid Of My
Jim: Hey fellas! It?s Jim Labadie and I am interviewing
Jayson Hunter of GetRidofMyGutDiet.com.
He?s going to tell us all about how to get rid of your fat belly and
how to get rid of your beer gut. He?s going to teach you fast
healthy weight loss tips for rapid weight
The difference between this program and others is that
it?s a really amazing system that Jayson has that helps you lose
weight very quickly, but also helps you keep it off. This isn?t that
BS stuff that?s floating around out there, those nonsense diets.
This is the real deal. So, any of you guys out there with the big
ol? beer gut and you want to get rid of it fast, Jayson is the man
to talk to. So today we?re going to go over 5 simple steps that you
can take to lose that weight fast. So, Jayson, thank you for being
Jayson: Well, thank you for having
Jim: Okay, so let?s get started. What?s tip number
1? How do they lose weight fast?
Jayson: Well, a real
simple one is and we?ve all been taught it, from the time we were
kids from our parents, is increase your vegetable intake, more
specifically your non-starchy vegetable intake, which the difference
between starchy vegetables and non-starchy vegetables comes down to
really just two vegetables. Corn and peas are considered starchy
vegetables and pretty much ever other vegetables are non-starchy, so
it?s not to hard to choose a vegetable that?s non-starchy.
The main reason is, because you want to be able to eat
something that is no caloricly dense but nutrient dense and
non-starchy vegetables contain a lot of vitamins and minerals.
They?re a great source of fiber which is very important for helping
you feel fuller longer, not encouraging you to eat 30 minutes after
you eat something. You?re going to be nice and full for a long time.
And, it requires more calories to burn those vegetables up because
there?s more substance to them. That fiber takes a little longer to
digest, so the body has to work a little harder with that and you
keep your insulin levels in check which is a big one for preventing
those promotions of fat storage.
Jim: Okay, so my
questions on that are real quick. Where does a potato fall? I mean,
most guys in there who?ve got these big beer guts, they?re probably
meat and potatoes guy. So, where does a potato
Jayson: A potato actually falls more in line of
a carbohydrate then a vegetable.
Jayson: So it?s more of a starch. What you?re
really looking for to eat is cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, green
beans, are your most common ones that people are going to eat, and
then of course you can get into more of your non-common string
beans, artichoke hearts, and things that are probably more of people
that are vegetable aficionados or maybe grow their own gardens or
live in rural areas that are more likely to have a wide variety of
vegetables at their disposal.
Jim: Got it. Okay, real
quick. What is insulin you mentioned insulin there? Just for those
who don?t know.
Jayson: Well, insulin shuttles blood
-- When you eat you get sugar in your blood and your body has to get
that sugar out of the blood and either use it as energy or store it
for use at a later time. Insulin actually does that. When you ingest
food and you get these sugars into your blood, your insulin
increases to go out and get those sugars, pull them out of your
blood and either, like I said, burn them for energy or store them to
be used at a later time. When all of your carbohydrate glycogen
levels are full, well then the only other alternative is to be
stored as fat. And so, insulin tends to promote fat storage because
most peoples glycogen/carbohydrate levels are usually pretty full,
so the alternative is fat storage.
Jim: Gotcha. Okay,
so those of us looking to get rid of our big ol? male beer guts,
we?re looking to be very careful of insulin and its
Jayson: You want to keep that insulin
response low, which is one of the main goals.
Alright, cool. So, just to let everybody know, Jayson has a killer
free e-book you can get at GetRidOfMyGutDiet.com. Its 36 foods that
you can read about, with all sorts of vegetables, and all sorts of
great choices fast. So, check out GetRidOfMyGutDiet.com. Alright,
Jayson number 2, protein at every meal. We hear so much about
protein; again, the guys are probably meat and potatoes guys. Why is
it so important ? how do we maybe make the transformation to just
eating fatty protein sources to types of proteins that they should
be eating to help them lose that gut.
like you said, men are definitely meat and potatoes type of guys so
it definitely should be easy to get protein into your diet
consistently, but you also do want to control the types of protein
you get in. A fried chicken breast, or 18 chicken wings from
Hooters, probably isn?t going to be the best source. Yes, its
protein, but you are also going to pack in a lot of extra calories
that you really don?t need if you?re trying to lose your gut. So,
one of the things you want to do is to look for those lean protein
sources. Skinless chicken breasts, lean beef and steaks, fish
grilled not fried. Eggs are another good source.
You know so
many people are scared of eggs but it seems more and more of the
research is showing that really eggs aren?t that bad for you.
They?re not the main culprit of why people are fat and have high
cholesterol. Dairy is also another good source. If you like cottage
cheese or yogurts or things like that, you can get in your lean
protein that way as well.
Jim: I got another question
for you Jayson. With yogurt, it seems to me every time I go to the
store I see yogurt and it?s mostly sugar and some protein. So, is
there any, in terms of yogurt, is there anything you can do? I mean
is it a good source of protein? Is it an okay source of
Jayson: The basic form of yogurt is a good
source of protein. When I say yogurt, I?m not talking about the Key
Lime Whip, Yoplait type or the strawberry flavored. Yogurt would be
just plain yogurt and you can get it in no added sugar and things
like that. You can also do just the plain yogurt and if you don?t
necessarily love the taste, mix a little protein powder in it or
something like that to give it more of a chocolaty flavor or a
natural strawberry flavor, but you?re getting more protein in that
way as well. So, yeah I would probably try to avoid all the
extravagant flavored yogurts and just stick to the basics or stick
to the no added sugar type yogurts.
Jim: Is there any
particular brand that you recommend, that you
Jayson: I think the brand that I eat is, I think
it?s Dannon. I?d have to go and look probably. But it?s the no added
sugar type, and tastes great, and it has I believe Sucralose so
there?s not the risk of cancer with the aspartame type theory.
Which, actually I just read recently that they?re finding that that
has been blown way out of portion actually and there?re studies
coming out to prove that, so, yeah I think it?s with Sucralose and I
think it?s by Dannon.
Jim: Okay, so basically let?s
go no added sugar, right? What?s what we?re looking
Jayson: Yeah and it actually ? I think it tastes
better then regular plain yogurt.
Jim: Alright, that?s
awesome because I?ll tell you what Jayson, that?s the kind of thing
our listeners want to know. That would definitely be something for
your Blog and by the way Jayson?s Blog is at GetRidOfMyGut.com. You
can keep up with the great things Jayson discusses. And for those
who don?t know, Jayson is a registered dietitian. He?s not just some
guy who?s spouting off theories and the latest thing he read in a
magazine. Jayson is one of the people that you?ll see in the
magazines. So, anyway, tip number 3. I?ve got here, eat whole grain
carbohydrates. So now, what is a whole grain carb? What?s a good
carb? What?s a bad carb? When am I supposed to be eating some of
Jayson: A whole grain carb would be
carbohydrates that are considered a good source of fiber. So, you
know, staying away from the ? you?ve heard the thing of no white
breads and things like that and white rice, and to a point there?s
validity to why people say that. I don?t know that they always know
why they are saying it, but the reason that they should try to limit
those is because those are usually made with process carbohydrates
and very little fiber content. So, those two right there are going
to dramatically increase your insulin level, and obviously we want
to keep our insulin low and our insulin response low, so fiber is
going to help keep that insulin level low like I talked about with
You?re whole grain carbs are going to be
anything that really says 100% whole grain. Some whole wheat, you
have to look though because some will say wheat bread. Well, wheat
bread is just white bread that hasn?t been bleached. So you need to
look for the whole grain or the whole wheat wording in it to find
out, and look at the fiber source. Most of them should have at least
2 grams of fiber per serving, if not 3 to be considered a good fiber
source. So, that will help you get you your answer as well with
that. So, brown rice is ? you mentioned meat and potatoes eat the
baked potato with the skin. Include that skin because that?s going
to give you that fiber, that?s going to give you your vitamins and
minerals that are going to help that insulin level. Don?t just eat
the white of the potato.
Jim: Gotcha. Okay. So, trying
to get back to one of the points you were talking about there, the
bread. When I read a food label for whole wheat bread, what should ?
I?ve seen enriched flour or, I was taught when I was in school to
always look for 100% whole wheat, you know is that the one main
ingredient on whole wheat bread that we?re looking for? Or, how do
we truly know that it?s whole grain as opposed
Jayson: That?s, right, you do want to look within
the first 5 ingredients for something that says whole grain, whole
oat, as one of those ingredients. You want to avoid the enriched
because that?s the processed portion. Then you also want to look at
the fiber, because that?s also going to help ? if it?s whole grain,
whole wheat type product it will have fiber in it and it will be a
decent source of fiber. If it has one gram or less of fiber in it
it?s not going to be 100% whole grain.
Jayson: To be whole grain usually means that
they keep the skin or the husk of the kernels and different oats,
the skin of those attached and that?s what?s giving it that fiber.
To make the white breads and whatnot, they shuck all those outer
skins off and just use the insides and that?s where you get just
your white breads and you?re just plain wheat breads that haven?t
Jim: Wow, that?s pretty cool. I never
Jayson: Learn something new every
Jim: Now you know, yeah. I?m sure glad I?m doing
this interview. Alright, rapid weight loss diet tip number 4. Eat
more healthy fats. Now, this is very confusing for people, I?m sure.
Healthy fats, unhealthy fats, Trans fats, why is this going to be
such a big deal when it comes to losing weight
Jayson: Well, your healthy fats are actually
what you see in the media and in your print advertisements is what?s
usually called essential fatty acids, and what that means is that
it?s fatty acids and fats that we can not produce in the body on our
own, so we have to get them through diet. And, why essential fatty
acids are so important is, because there?s hundreds and hundreds of
studies that are showing that it helps with brain function.
The government is doing studies with Alzheimer?s patients
because of the role with brain function, it?s helping slow down that
disease; help prevent certain diseases such as heart disease and
cancer. The studies are actually now showing that it may actually
increase your metabolism by as much as 400 calories a day and that?s
the big one when it comes to just specific weight loss.
you want to just throw out all the numerous health benefits of why
essential fatty acids are good and just go off of the fact for
weight loss and fat loss, it actually helps increase your metabolism
and there?s also some studies showing that it may actually block
what they tend to call pre-fat cells from turning into permanent fat
cells. So, again, that?s another huge step in regards to weight loss
and trying to prevent weight gain. And, essential fatty acids
primarily are, what you?ll also hear or read, is Omega 3 fats.
You?ll see that fish is an excellent source of Omega 3 fats.
Olive oil, people are promoting instead of using vegetable oil, use
olive oil because of the essential fatty acids and the Omega 3s.
Walnuts and Almonds are another good source and they?re actually a
good protein source, they contain good fiber, and they contain
So, if you want a healthy snack, throw some
almonds in a bag and take them with you to work, keep them at your
desk. They?re a great snack to help you feel full; help boost that
metabolism and it?s actually it?s a really good food for you in many
ways. You know you?re getting your fiber, you?re getting your
protein, you?re getting your healthy fat, you?re getting three of
the five tips I?m giving you today just in one food, with
Jim: There you go guys. You have no excuse but
to lose that gut of yours. So, Jayson we?re almost out of time. How
to lose belly fat tip number 5. Eat frequent meals. Alright so we?ve
got busy guys on the go that want to know how to get rid of that gut
fast. I?m sure they?ve heard it before eat smaller meals throughout
the day. They?re probably having a muffin and coffee for breakfast,
having a big lunch, maybe not eating all afternoon, come home and
eat a huge, huge dinner. How are these guys going to get 4-6 small
meals a day?
Jayson: Well, you do have to do a little
planning ahead, but if you use the previous four tips, you know, you
could cut up some vegetables ahead of time on a Sunday and just put
them in bags so that you have them available to put into your lunch
or as a snack. Protein choices you?ve got the yogurt, you could hard
boil the eggs, you could have some string cheese, mozzarella cheese,
as a snack. Almonds, as we talked about.
You know those
types of things and plan ahead to where you don?t have to think the
morning of, ?Alright what am I going to eat for my snack today? What
am I going to do for lunch? And then I got that snack in the
afternoon.? It?s all already in the fridge. If you do maybe an hour
of planning on a Sunday or a Saturday, all you have to do is pack
it. Put it in individual bags or Tupperware containers, throw it in
your cooler or bring it with you and put it in the refrigerator at
work, so that it?s available. That way, the less thinking you can
take out of it, the better off you?re going to be.
it?s those times where you?re hungry and you have nothing in front
of you that you end up going to the vending machine, or you end up
not eating at all, which is actually really bad because, the reason
you should be eating frequently throughout the day is it boosts your
metabolism. Every time you eat your metabolism increases to digest
that food. Your body uses calories to digest calories? So, you want
to keep that metabolism revved up every day.
yesterday I?m working with a group of people at a local company here
and one of the guys, he ate pretty healthy, he?s not severely
overweight but he?s got a gut and it seems to be getting bigger. He
was like, how do I lose my belly fat. And, he wasn?t eating
frequently, so I said, ?First, you need to start eating 4-6 times a
day?? And that was the biggest shock to a lot of these guys; they
were like ?Really?? You know, because they are used to skipping
breakfast, eating McDonalds for lunch and then going home and eating
So, the only change he?s really done is he?s eating
6 times a day and he?s lost like, I want to say 18 lbs or something
like that since Thanksgiving. And that?s really the only change he?s
done. We have not changed much else. It wasn?t like he was eating no
protein and went to eating protein at every meal or he went to all
non-starchy foods. He was, already doing some of that sprinkled in
there already, but his biggest change was, he ate frequently. And
the weight is coming off.
Jim: And for those of you
who are listening to this, it?s January now that we?re recording
Jayson: It?s been like 6 weeks maybe, since we
started with this.
Jim: And that?s rapid weight loss
but it?s also permanent, safe, it helps metabolism, improves
metabolism and that?s not a starvation diet where it?s going to
cause massive problems down the road right?
No, and he gets to eat. I mean, what guy doesn?t want to eat. You
know, the worst thing about trying to lose weight is you think you
have to starve yourself and that?s the exact opposite that you want
to do if you?re going to lose weight. You need to feed yourself and
you need to feed yourself consistently because then the weight will
come off. If you restrict eating and that metabolism plummets cause
your body has to survive. It goes into a survival mode at that point
and it?s going to do everything possible to burn as little calories
as possible because you don?t feed it frequently
Jim: Absolutely. Alright Jayson, well we
appreciate you being here very, very much. For all those guys out
there looking to lose belly fat, get rid of their guts, get in
