    #21 Can I Eat What I Want And Still Lose Fat? (The Topic and Importance of Food Quality)

    #21 Can I Eat What I Want And Still Lose Fat? (The Topic and Importance of Food Quality)

    The simple answer is, yes you can eat whatever you want and still lose fat as long as you are in a calorie deficit. But is that optimal? Probably not, no. So this episode undertakes the complicated answer: no....you still need to pay attention to what you are eating, where it comes from, and the ingredients in your processed food. 

    Also included in this episode: 
    1. What do eat? 
    2. What to eat for fat loss: calorie deficit 
    3. What to eat for muscle gain: calorie surplus 
    4. You CAN eat whatever you want but it isn't going to optimize your progress. 
    5. Quality of food matter. What is in your food matter. 
    6. Eat whole foods. What are whole foods? Real food? Processed food?
    7. Ingredients to avoid in processed foods (gums, palm oil, cane sugar....oh and we talk about OATS  too)
    ***Alexis goes on a super long tangent about gut health because that is apparently all she likes to talk about. :(
    8. What to eat instead for the foods I just can't and won't give up. 
    9. Grass fed butter, raw grass fed cheese, EVOO, avocado oil etc. 
    10. The dreaded artificial sweetener debate.....ew
