 Hey, what's up everybody! It's Matt with Meal Preps for me. We're here to talk to you today about the calorie and how to make the calories you eat. Not go on your sides, but out your, just think of what happens with corn. We'll put it that way,

the first thing that we're gonna have to understand is how our body works. First thing when we eat. Our body breaks down that food mass into glucose in our stomach and our digestive tract, and then that glucose goes into our bloodstream to be used right now for energy or for stored energy later, and we all know where the storage goes.

We won't get into that. Now, the next thing that we're gonna have to understand is where are the calories located in the food that we. There are food that has calories very, very readily accessible, which means that once it goes in the body, the body's gonna have no problem breaking it down. Think white bread, white bread is actually the most quickly digested food on the planet.

We know this because of its glucose response, and there's a whole chart that tells us how much or how quickly, how readily available the nutrients are in food for our stomachs or our guts to break down based upon their insulin.

If we consume food and we look at the fiber portion on the nutrition facts, that fiber is considered insoluble, which means that we don't actually digest it and we don't actually create calories from it. So that means all the fiber you eat, that's free food. It's not gonna go on your hips or your back.

Now, flip that around just a little tiny. Once you start chewing on that broccoli, you start to break down those cell walls. And once those cell walls break open, guess what happens? Now our body's enzymes can go in and digest and pull those calories out of the food. So how do we make it so your body can't digest some of the food that you're eating?

Is how we can hack the equation the way that we do that we eat more food. That has less readily accessible calories. Think vegetables, think things like that. Even apples. Apples, very high in sugar. But it's found that even when consuming apples, all of your chewing and everything that's happening, it's not digesting nearly as fast as you think those fiber cell walls are really kicking in.

In fact, if you take a look at the glucose or insulin response of an individual that drinks a glass of apple, and then compare that to a person who just eats the equivalent amount of apples in apple form. What you're gonna find is, is the apple juice person goes like this really fast, and the apple person has a more steady and then flatlined response to how much glucose is being introduced into the body.

Why is this important? Well, if your body can digest the nutrients you get them, which means that they are going on your body. So let's think of ways to not digest those nutrients one way. Raw vegetables are great, but also know this, the more you cook your food, the softer you make those fibrous cell walls, and therefore making it easier to unlock them.

go inside and take those nutrients and put them on your hips. So that's our tip for today. I wanna leave you with one picture, and it's not the picture that I really wanna leave you with, but to really heavily understand this. Just think about the last time you ate kerneled corn. I'll leave it at that. Have a great day.

Thanks for watching with us today, Matt Delman meal preps for me. We got nothing to sell you today, just talking a little bit about how to hide your calories. We'll see you later.
