Guess Which Food Is Healthier (SHOCKING)

3 Dangerous Ingredients to Avoid – Wallet Cutout Card:

Learn how to read nutrition labels and spot the top three ingredients to avoid.

0:00 Introduction: Which food is healthier?
0:52 Nutrition facts
2:43 Ultra-processed foods
5:03 How to read nutrition labels
5:10 Top ingredients to avoid

Let’s compare the nutrition facts of Product A and Product B to see which food is healthier. Product A contains 29 grams of total fat, 4 grams of saturated fat, 17 grams of carbohydrates, and 1 gram of sugar.

Product B contains 8 grams of total fat, 1 gram of saturated fat, 16 grams of carbohydrates, and 0 grams of sugar. Based on these nutrition facts, which food is healthier?

Product A is an avocado, and Product B is Doritos! Doritos contain corn, vegetable oil, maltodextrin, monosodium glutamate, dextrose, and many other poor ingredients—yet you may have thought Product B was the healthier food.

You can't rely on nutritional facts alone to determine whether a food is healthy; you must look at the ingredients.

Food is “that which is eaten to sustain life, provide energy, and promote the growth and repair of tissues.” Ultra-processed foods do not align with this definition! I believe that of everything that causes disease and destroys your health, ultra-processed foods are the most significant factor.

If you want to know which food is healthy, you should ignore nutrition facts and go right to the ingredients. Here are 3 ingredients you’ll want to avoid:
1. Seed oils
2. All forms of sugar
3. Starches

    It’s truly amazing how invested you are in educating us to live better healthier lives Dr Berg. My grocery list has completely changed because of your advice. My approach to food and exercise and other things one would never even think about have completely changed.

    My optometrist, dentist and general practitioner are impressed when I go for my check ups and my optometrist was so impressed with how my eyes improved after I implemented your advice that he cracked open a notebook and listened to ME giving him advice on eye health instead of the other way around. If it were not for you, I’d probably be overweight, wearing glasses and addicted to energy drinks but today I’m in the best shape I’ve been in for years.

    You’re my hero, and the only true doctor in my life.

      Please…where does one find the specific eye advice you mention?

    • @CLYDESDALEDUBD on April 25, 2024 at 2:23 pm

      Same here. Where I live, real organic food without all of the extra ultra processed ingredients is actually relatively affordable, so it was an easy change. I was getting really out of shape and had a belly, but after just 3 weeks of taking Dr. Berg’s diet, I lost 20 lbs. and had more energy than I’ve had in years. I also checked out his video on weightlifting and have been doing the single set workouts once a week and now I have a 6-pack. People I work with have made comments to me about how I look great and how even my mental state has improved. Who knew eating right relieves stress, nervousness, and depression? well, I do now.

    • @adim00lah on April 25, 2024 at 3:58 pm

      Not really, he compared 3 servings of avocado to 1 serving of doritos. So it’s not an apples to apples comparison.

      Granted I do agree ingredients is a major factor but so are the nutrients. For instance, kale is a far healthier option than iceberg lettuce because there are far more nutrients.

    I completely agree with you, Dr Berg. The real problem with food nowadays is “fake and toxic” vs “real and nutritious” where all toxic ingredients are the culprits causing multiple health problems. Thank you 🙏🏻

  5. @melkerner on April 25, 2024 at 12:25 pm

    I read the label and if it contains seed oils, HFCS or added sugars beyond reason or maltodextrin I put it back on the shelf and move on.

      All food colors are carcinogenic… It was determined so in the 1970s when the FDA was established and advise companies they could not use artificial coloring. The companies merely tweaked the artificial coloring on a molecular level, and kept using them anyway. The chemicals add to shelf life; natural coloring does not.

    What upsets me is even after you cut out junk food, processed food, now we are dealing with produce coated in Apeel or pesticides, produce grown with 75% less nutrients than their ancestors just 30 years ago, animals fed wheat and given medicines, PFAS in every single thing we eat, grow, drink and breathe, and now we have to fight foods that are grown in labs like cheese and meat! We can’t win!

    Shop the perimeter of the store, fresh produce,meat/seafood, dairy. Stay away from anything in a package or box except frozen vegetables and fruit.

  18. @raymitchell9736 on April 25, 2024 at 4:47 pm

    Dr. Berg, I am so happy to hear you getting the word out about the horrid condition of our food supply. What we have is quite the trifecta of agriculture, food manufacturing, and medical/pharmaceuticals all profiting from our nutrition ignorance…

    The other thing to avoid are “calories” to describe food energy… A calorie is a unit of heat as measured by a b*mb calorimeter and as you know, that’s not how our bodies metabolize food… the whole idea of the energy balance concept (CICO) is a wrong-headed approach this and we need a better system… The Calorie has to go… I no longer use it or the term.

    He is brilliant, and a gem of a person to anyone with common sense about how to improve their health in a sustained way.
    I just love learning from his simple to understand videos. I respect this man immensely. 🙏

    It amazes me that people don’t ask themselves and each other why “they” get poison in our food???
    I have been researching it for over 10 years and have found out quite a lot.
    But when I tell people about it, they don’t believe it and think I’m crazy.!!! Thanks for the video 💖💖💖
