Jeff: *hold my supplements*
Jeff doesn't always wear a shirt, but when he does, it's a bigger shirt so he doesn't intimidate us
Must be the peanuts in there 😂😂
I believe the saying has merit in contexts when someone thinks he or she can eat an unlimited amount of nuts, dried fruits, avocado and those kind of things, thinking it's healthy.The calories still counts
A calorie is a calorie is valid if you only care about weight loss and absolutely nothing else (i.e. I just want to lose certain pounds and I don't give a shit about muscle and health). If you eat at a caloric deficit, then yes, no matter what you're eating, let it be ice cream, chips, french fries, chocolate...etc, you'll lose weight.
Jeff hasn’t aged at all. He filmed this 6 years ago and looks exactly the same
This video was recommended to you too? :D
Wrong he looks better
Really speaks volumes about his lifestyle.
I was snickering the entire video at the thought that all calories are the same.
I've never thought about nutrition before. I've been listening to the model health show on spotify and they teach nutrition for health rather than doctors and pills which should be a last resort. It's about being smarter and living a healthier lifestyle for our kids not just ourselves. Thanks Jeff for providing a wealth of amazing content
I love his ad videos have 2 million plus views but nutrition one have a 3rd of the views
How long do you eat after your workout after taking your protein shake? I train in the everning.
What abou athlean supplements for women? I need to check it out.
agreed. all kcals are not equal,from what they may be made of to how they affect organs of digestion..eg pancreas
Macros and nutrition are more important than calories. Just eat enough and eat clean. Yes you can have something like a cookie or dessert or a slice of pizza but in moderation. It's all good as long as you mostly eat clean.
ummm check out Blake Horton! living proof Jeff is WRONG!
a car is a carbut a ferarri is not a toyota.
@Mitchell Gehring shut the fuck up
@kungfuman82 I build Ferrari's in my Mechanic Shop actually and they are better than anything their factories can make. TOP QUALITY SHIT. I can build anything using a 3d printer and 3rd party parts. But not even my creations last as long as Toyotas. I am super human with an IQ of 150 and I race cars on the track in my free time. But Toyota is like god. They have many engineers as good as me
I think you two are missing his point..
Mitchell Gehring Spoken like someone who's never driven a Ferrari. In before some made ul bullshit about you building Ferrari's in your garage or some shit so you know way more than anyone on YouTube.
Jeff noticed that the size of the snicker bar has changed since he was young. Snack food companies have been doing this for decades. The drop a little bit of size of their snacks figuring no one will notice and then I the keep the price the same or only slightly bring the price up. Either the way tons of profit. Sneaky bastards.
A calorie is a calorie! That’s like saying a watt isn’t a watt. A calorie is a unit , the energy needed to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water through 1 °C .I get what he’s saying about nutrients value of food/macros
You're right of course, but if you need 100watts of electrical energy to run a device then me punching it with 100 watts of kinetic energy isnt going to help much.
but did you get the message? EXACTLY!
No chance in hell I'm eating 4 tubs of Kale. Should have picked something to set your precedent that is remotely edible.
He probably eats 300g of protein. I still can't wrap my mind around not tracking. How do I know that I'm hitting my macros? What if I end up eating too much protein and too little good fats?
I got a kfc ad in a fat loss video lol
Idk, I always thought you needed a wide variety of foods to be healthy but my buddy on the carnivore diet says he doesn’t need vitamins and fiber and all that stuff. He eats steak, bacon, eggs and cheese ONLY. Nothing else. He says it’s the best he’s ever felt. He lifts and is losing weight.Do we really need to eat “healthy”? Why doesn’t he feel like crap and have health problems? Maybe it’s over a longer time that issues develop. Idk.
Jeff is really informed. He summed up what Rhonda Patrick was saying on JRE perfectly. And he's not even in that field...goes to show that he genuinely enjoys this and does his research!
So this explains why when I’m training and on around 2000 cal a day of mcd and subways I get fat as fuck, but when I switch to 2500 cal a day of chicken, wholewheats,veggies, eggs etc with the same training I seem to re compose. Stomach goes away and muscles pump up. I couldn’t rack my brain around why with technically more calories, yet much healthier options, I can eat more calories and get entirely different results
When we are talking about losing/gaining weight, it is simply calories in, calories out. Doesn't matter what you eat as long as you hit your macronutrient needs, no argument.Now if we are talking about health, then you need food containing high amounts of micronutrients, which is completely a different discussion. These nutrients may *assist* with weight loss due to our bodies running more efficiently.The take home message is, nobody is perfect, and should not be expected to eat 100% clean. Eat clean 80%-90% of the day while hitting your macro/micro needs and you will be well on your way.
but what you're missing out on is price difference
If you are interested, the Math of weight loss:https://youtu.be/vuIlsN32WaE
Alot of the comments on here are missing the fact that 200 cals of white sugar is processed by the body differently than 200 cals of say baked chicken. More of the 200 cals of sugar is stored as fat as the body has strict limits to how much you can use at one time and the rest gets stored to avoid a damaging level of blood sugar. Its not all about calories when different substances are processed by the body through different pathways and hormones.
im a slut for crunch bars though
If choosing between the Snickers bar and kale - I shouldn't eat Snickers bar, but I wouldn't eat kale because it would be gross and boring and time consuming and exhausting. (Actually life-shortening/life-wasting experience)What's better then - not to eat at all or eat kale?Cause I don't like my stomach to feel heavy.I want to be able to jump-around run-around afer the meal, still feeling light.What should I do?
I like how honest this guy is, he even expressing it unconsciously with his body language when he touches his nose at 1:03 which is a gesture indicating that the person found something that he considers negative (as far as i know), which is in this case the quality of calories.
Jeff cavelrie is a cavelrie is a cavelrie is a cavelrie
You need to hit your micro and macro, calorie comes after
Thank you for putting it like this, showing healthy food next to candy... real eye opener!
First, what's kale? Second, who uses calories anymore?
If a calorie isn't a calorie then how can there be any such thing as a calorie at all? Either a calorie is a calorie, foods are calorically miscounted, or there's no such thing as a calorie.
It's a concept we've come up with. Are you ready to trust your health on it? It's obvious that your body processes different foods differently.
Pro-Tip advice people.
A calorie is a calorie. It's like saying what weighs more a kilo of fevers or a kilo of gold. They obviously both weigh the same but one is more dense. 200cal of kale is obviously healthier than 200cal of chocolate with way better nutrients, but as for weight loss or weight management goes they are equal.
will there be a chance to get one of your protein powders?😊
Yeah but what if you can just control your urges to have more and every once and a while eat a snickers instead of kale? You'd be getting the same amount of calories (let's assume you get sufficient protein/fiber/vitamins through another source).. so you would maintain your weight.
Omg I found a stupid Athlean X video! I didn't think it existed!
Then there’s that one factor where people rather take what is much more accessible to them.
