Hi Folks, I’m Bob Schrupp physical therapist Brad Heineck physical therapist and together we are the most famous physical therapists on the internet well in our opinion of course Bob We’re talking into an apple basically all right Yeah, that’s gonna be part of my lunch after this, so oh did you hear that? We’ve got a guest here Yep, hi Craig again from the other day I’m here today to talk about calorie density. So we’re gonna talk about how to This is a good way to diet basically and lose weight is what we’re going to and this is a great I think we’re gonna have some great visual demonstrations here of How to eat and why to eat the certain foods and doing it a healthy way So I think this is a great thing but Bob I do see a couple people out there We have not seen before. If you are new to our channel, please take a second to subscribe to us we provide videos on how to stay healthy fit pain free And we upload every day the subscription buttons over there or down there, and if you haven’t yet Please like us on Facebook We have lots of free gifts there quite often, contests that you can join to get some free stuff. All right Let’s talk about Craig, Craig why don’t you give us your introduction. Let us know who you are, okay yeah, my name is Craig Martin I’m currently a graduate student at UW La crosse mastering in community health education with a emphasis on diet nutrition and disease reversal through a whole foods plant-based diet And Craig can you tell us just a little bit about your personal story about because you said you’ve had some weight loss and The asthma story is interesting too So it’s interesting I live in Wisconsin I was lactose Intolerant I worked at a cheese factory and It’s a requirement when you live in Wisconsin. Yeah, and actually that’s what got me interested in diet Well, I was already interested in diet when I became lactose-intolerant But what I found more interesting is when I started working in the cheese industry We would shut down For cheese production for lunch and then we would start up again and then we’d shut down at the end of the day and what I found was this goes along with heart disease too, the inside of the pipes of The cheese when we were manufacturing cheese inside the pipes were coated with cheese And when we would take those pipes apart at the end of the day we would have to scrape out hard cheese sometimes these cheese pipes would be so occluded you could barely get any through there and That made me realize what I was eating had an impact not only on my weight But also on my health, I stopped eating cheese after I started working at a cheese factory Because I just thought oh my gosh what is it doing? Not only that but cheese is very calorically dense A 1 ounce cube of cheese Which is about the size of two dice has 100 calories in it and when you think about that That’s a small amount of cheese. That’s about the size of that one apple there Probably has 100 calories, but if that was cheese that would probably be about 600 calories so when you look at food that way And you start to realize where your calories are coming from it really can help you visualize How much food you can eat and still lose weight. Craig how much weight have you lost? Well, I started following a whole foods plant-based diet after I saw the devastating effects of cheese And I lost about 40 pounds so at my heaviest I was about 166 now I’m about 128 130. And I look at you You look like a naturally thin person. I mean you do, you don’t look like someone that was ever overweight. Yeah Interestingly enough, I mean yeah, I thought you were one of those lucky people that Eat anything you want never gain weight. Yeah, well now I eat anything I want and I never gain weight, but before I used to eat anything I wanted and I gained weight so and tell them your age too because I think you look younger than you, are yeah I’m 36 years old I get a lot of people telling me I look like I’m in my early 20s, right and you do yeah Exactly, so you’re a walking testimony to Plant-based diet, correct yeah, yeah, and didn’t you say your asthma had a change with this diet Yeah, when I cut the dairy out of my diet. I had asthma for 30 years and As soon as I cut the dairy out it was funny. I’d run a half-marathon in Green Bay. I always wanted to run a half-marathon I’d done that and my parents were like Craig where’s your inhaler? Where are your asthma symptoms like what is going on and I went oh yeah I don’t have asthma anymore, it had been a gradual transition, the longer I went without the animal products in my diet the greater the benefits were and From that point on I ran the half marathon, and I said I can run a marathon And then I did and I almost I was like 14 minutes shy of qualifying for Boston Cool great, so my first marathon ever and I had never run before because I couldn’t so we got some visualization So what’s all this about? So what I have here This is very interesting This right here is five pounds of lettuce This is also 500 calories So I mean if you feel this this is pretty heavy, I don’t want to you know Knock out of your chair, don’t drop it 500 calories, And then what I have here this is what 500 calories of cauliflower broccoli and carrots look like Still quite large, quite large, not as big Now we eat about 2,000 calories a day So you could eat four bowls of this a day and you’d get 2,000 calories So there you go, you would probably fill up before you would ever finish this and if you had to eat That all day you’d lose weight because you wouldn’t be able to eat enough calories in a given day So I mean that’s just there in and of itself is a testament to What 500 calories looks like how that will fill your stomach because honestly this right Here is about the size of our stomachs What do we have there? Well and this these are there’s a bunch of little w’s on these. Peanut M&Ms. Yeah, and this is 500 calories of peanut M&Ms. Wow And when you compare that to this 500, you want to lift that up? This is my weakness right here peanut M&Ms This is amazing. Which one do you think would fill your stomach, which one would fill you up? That’s why we snack on these all day, and we never get full Now if we ate that, we’d get full, now granted I would never just eat this alone, I would probably use a balsamic vinegar on that something to replace the olive oil because this olive oil if that were used to coat this That would make that 1000 Calories, so that’s 500 calories on its own Yeah, this is 500 calories compared to this little You know when you look at it 500 calories That’s what 500 calories looks like next to each other and I’m thinking well It’s okay cuz olive oil’s healthy, and that’s all like good calories Right well, I mean, it’s all extra calories. You can use a balsamic vinegar You could use other types of vinegars they have some very good Flavored vinegars, you could go online to the olivetap.com And you can look at some of the flavored vinegars that they have and you can use that in place You know that’s a very low calorie option that still gets your lettuce moist And that’s what you’re looking for and it has really good flavors, right Or you could use this and dump 500 calories on your salad, sure 500 calories out of a 2,000 Calorie diet which is a lot To just get flavor on your salad exactly yeah, so then other examples here This is 500 calories of sweet potato. I had to cut to the sweet potato So there’s some air in here, but If you boil sweet potatoes, or boil any potato Studies have shown that potatoes are one of the most filling foods that people can eat It’s what we put on that potato that becomes problematic. So if you’re putting butter on your potato You’re increasing the calorie density of the food Just kind of like olive oil because butter is 100% fat just like olive oil’s 100% fat So what would you recommend to put on potatoes? So for potatoes I either put salsa or some stew or something else because when you eat a baked potato It’s dry Really all you’re trying to do is you’re trying to moisten it up To get it to a flavor that you can like otherwise you can mash the potato pour in some Vegetable broth some low sodium vegetable broth, well that’s usually high in sodium Yes, so you’d want low sodium vegetable broth, no salt added, is there such a thing, there are Yep, or you can make your own if you’re feeling adventurous What do we have in front of us? We have some oatmeal, now this is dried oatmeal So actually dried oatmeal is actually calorically dense However when you add water to it and you rehydrate it This would swell in your stomach so I mean it would probably Fill I should have done that before but it would probably still about half of this bowl sure But the nice thing about calorie density whether this be oatmeal or Rice when you mix these foods with it You’re going to fill up your stomach more So I would always every morning when I have my oatmeal I add berries to it Because berries are not as calorie Calorie density is based on a few things, the amount of water in a product the amount of fiber the amount of fat in that product and the amount of sugar and Or you know carbohydrates or however we want to use the term sugar or carbohydrates or starch Ccalorically dense items contain usually more fat or they are lacking water Or fiber. That’s why this is pure fat it’s 1 gram of Fat is 9 calories per gram, 1 gram of sugar is 4 calories per gram so it’s double the density already Based on how we view fats and sugars So with fruit and stuff you’re saying there’s more water obviously in fruit? So I get into trouble with dehydration sometimes And I’ve been eating less carbs. Is that possible because I’m eating less carbs I’m getting less water from food, and I need to drink more? I mean is that? It could be Yeah if you were to have a Steamed sweet potato there would be a lot of water in there, if you were to have steamed potatoes You would have a lot more water Where if you’re having something like this, these are pretty dry, right You know and I always thought like when I ate peanuts which I eat roasted peanuts now Before I obviously I’d get dehydrated because of the salt But now it seems like I still almost get dehydrated because I’m not taking any water in through the food itself Exactly yeah, it’s one interesting thing When you’re eating more whole fruits and vegetables. You’re actually getting more water Which means you don’t have to drink as much water because you’re getting it through another source So if I understand you right we can eat Peanut M&Ms if we drink water with it Well, that’s one way of understanding it. I like you. This is fun now. No, yeah So I would say drink a lot of water so these float on top. Because otherwise that water will filter through and you’ll just be left with this left in your stomach And that’s not going to fill you. What’s the one on the end, did we talk about it? No, this is about 500 calories of nuts, I mean I would never tell anyone not to eat them But the thing is when you’re eating food you have to realize that this is still 500 calories So whether or not you think it’s well it’s fine. Well it is fine It is healthy, but not a lot goes a very far way, so I don’t know if we mentioned But this is approximately the size of an average human stomach yeah stomachs do stretch And my stomach stretches a lot. I eat a lot of food because I eat more of these foods So my stomach has to be adaptable because otherwise I would starve. I mean not starve. I mean I just eat a lot more So what about the saturation factor? I mean I eat nuts and I seem to fill up on them quicker Do you know what I mean? Yeah, like a lot of times I can eat some of the other foods and obviously, I could have ate a lot more obviously I didn’t realize but you know I was still hungry after, where I eat the Almonds, and it seems like I’m held over longer Something to remember there is fiber in this so the fiber is what fills you up There’s no fiber in here. So you could drink this, I wouldn’t recommend it right but There’s no fiber in there to keep you feeling fuller longer, fiber is the secret gun On saturation quite often I mean yeah yeah Actually, it’s fiber the amount of fiber and the amount of water in a product of food actually keeps You feeling fuller longer, so you’re more satisfied And that’s the one thing they found with potatoes is when you boil potatoes There’s so much water in there that they just keep you full so much longer And then not to mention all the fiber that’s in there as well, so Yeah, what about, I know we’re over timing, but one more thing I want to just, what about spaghetti itself, what are your thoughts on spaghetti? I eat spaghetti almost daily. You do? I do What do you eat with it? I usually then will some toast with it. What do you put on it? Do you put anything on it? On my spaghetti? I have spaghetti sauce. I have a fat-free spaghetti sauce that I purchased I Sprinkle on parsley Italian seasoning I like nutritional yeast I don’t know if you’ve ever had nutritional yeast it kind of has a cheesy flavor I didn’t like it at first, but I kind of adapted my taste buds And then just a little cracked pepper on it That’s what I use some, sounds good, I miss spaghetti. Yeah And then I was going to say one more thing this is 500 calories of fruit the only thing is this is blackberries and raspberries I couldn’t get the blueberries in here So this is about 2.5 pounds of food, so these should be in here too so that’s 500 calories of food Oh these should be in there with it. So they’re pretty good, too. Oh, yeah Yeah, they’re very good and remember all these foods here contain carbohydrates now these foods contain this has no carbohydrate, but it’s 500 calories This is 5 pounds of carbohydrate essentially so carbohydrates Aren’t necessarily the villain it’s the medium or the food that brings in the carbohydrates That contain fat and everything else because this is carbohydrate as well, but there’s also a lot of fat in here, right? And that’s what drives up the caloric density of this food, so I’m assuming there’s sugar There is sugar in there as well. Yeah, but when you’re looking at everyone says carbohydrates are the villain well It’s really these high-fat foods that we eat that are more villainous than a carbohydrate because these all contain carbohydrates too So look how much you can eat and look at how little you can eat here, and then there’s dyes in there And we have all of those other things we want to avoid And stay away from Well one way or another yeah, we want to very much Thank Craig for taking the time very interesting kind of screwed up my whole diet, but that’s alright I’ll make some changes, but we’ll look and see we’re going to do here. I’m going to be drinking water with my M&Ms now That’s right At least you’re drinking some water. Thanks again Craig, oh yeah, you’re welcome. Thank you guys. Thanks for joining us.

    Great stuff! I have been whole food plant based for over 6 years and I am doing so much better. No more IBS or acid reflux!! Lost 21 lbs too. I hope to lose another 10 lbs to get within my ideal weight for my age! I try to recommend this to people without being to pushy because it is challenging at first but so worth it!!

    Correction: Butter is NOT 100% fat, it is 80% fat, the other 20% is whey and milk proteins. When you clarify butter, you remove those other constituents and you are then left with 100% fat. But to anyone stressing themselves out over calories, well, you need some science in your diet, battle-tested science. It's really not about calories, that's an oversimplification, and it's misleading. it's about nutritional density, it's about the quality of the food. If you eat high-quality, unprocessed, whole foods that are nutrient dense, and avoid sugar, sweets, juices and other empty calories – calories with no nutritional value, you won't have to worry about counting calories or cholesterol. If you don't believe it, that's good. Investigate and make up your own mind. Check out "it's all about food." This book changed my life and a few hundred thousand other ppl (and counting). And I lost 25 lbs without trying to or even wanting to, as I was not overweight. I did it for health reasons, chronic pain, inflammation, heartburn/reflux. But if you are into that, you WILL lose weight if you follow those guidelines, and the science and research as well as actual real life experience is all explained in detail, for once. It's pretty compelling. Just a suggestion! (also I am just a regular person and in no way affiliated with the authors of the book or any kind of profit-seeking entity, since I know that sounds like a commercial) Bob and Brad love the videos, keep up the good work! Thanks!!

    I steam a potful of different vegetables and only use some ground pink himalayan salt on them. Tastes great. Your taste buds need to be retrained. My granddaughter who is 3 years old never salts them and thinks we are kind of crazy to add salt. She has eaten this way her whole little life. You can retrain yourself to love foods in their natural state. The pluses are well worth it.

    Dr. John McDougal did the same presentation many years ago. I think his bowls were even the same. His vegan starch solution diet is excellent except I don’t agree that fat is a total no no, which Craig seems to be saying also. Dr. McDougal and his wife look about 30 years older than they are and I believe it’s because of eating no fat.

    Full does NOT EQUAL satisfied. The body needs long digesting fat to be satisfied, or cravings continue. Eating releases insulin. All calories are NOT EQUAL. Eating foods containing sugar creates cravings, not fullness. Dairy is a problem for some people. Some people overcome serious problems eating mostly meat and nutritional leafy greens (not lettuce). If you haven't tried a meat plan for good health, time to try. Meat is one of the less allergenic foods. Allergenic foods and its lectins can cause problems in people. The 2010 meta study by Ronald Krauss in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that there is NOT enough proof to LINK saturated FAT to HEART disease. The 2010 analysis was so big and so thorough — that it involved 21 studies and nearly 350,000 people. This study was censored from mass (government misinformation) media except the Scientific America 2010 article “Refined Carbohydrates, not Fats, Threaten the Heart” and many honest doctors online.

    this so called expert is promoting foods with a high glycemic index, such as white potatoes and oatmeal; not ideal for weight loss. Plant based diet for weight loss is strictly vegetables with low glycemic index, such as greens, broccoli, kale, low-starch veggies. And, yes olive and coconut oil are essential. So why even mention weight loss in this video, since his recommendations don't make sense?

    Good for you Bob and Brad! Thank you for this valuable and informative video. I'm a new subscriber.

    I have too laugh when people respond to a person describing what calorie density means as being "fat-phobic". I think some people tend to panic whenever they hear someone supporting a whole food plant based diet because for many decades we've all been over saturated with aggressive media advertising touting alleged health benefits of meat and dairy with lots of oil, oil, oil, and the Dept of Agriculture's biased dietary recommendations, so its no wonder that we cant even entertain the idea of consuming anything else.

    Its good to see this video, as it reflects the current fact that our government has recently been rethinking their history of dietary recommendations and The World Health Organization's recent warning about consuming processed meats is being taken seriously. We need to stop being afraid of change and new ideas. For a country that is so wealthy and powerful, isn't it rather ironic that the US ranks among the top three countries with the highest rate of Cardio Vascular Disease, Diabetes, Stroke, Cancer, Osteoporosis, etc, compared to other countries where these diseases are rare or non-existent but their diet is predominantly unprocessed and plant based. Countless studies over past decades have repeatedly proven this. Check out NutritionFacts.org or read the China Study or Preventing and Reversing Heart Disease.

    Like other commentators, I too, have switched away from the Standard American Diet due to decades of obesity related health problems and have been consuming a whole foods plant based diet for the past 2 years now. I will be turning 60 in less than 3 months. I too, feel like a teenager since going plant based! No regrets at all, never going back.

    This kind of stuff is nice, but it gets into being food obsessed. If you eat a good whole food diet, high in fiber and low in sweets, you'll lose weight and keep it off. I don't know why you guys are doing Keto, that's the dumb diet du jour.

    Is the idea to be skinny or healthy? I believe a person's aim should be living a healthful life. I have multiple aunts who lived into their 80s and 90s, and they ate meat. The difference, however, is that they prepared their own food and ate from primarily farm-fresh ingredients. There is very little nutrition in that particular lettuce he has on the table. Also, the fruits he's chosen are relatively expensive, especially when they are not seasonal. This video concerns me a little, although I will admit that I see the bigger point he's trying to make. Less junk, more nutritious food choices.

    This man said he once worked in a Wisconsin cheese factory, and the cheese that was clogged in those pipes including cheese that became so hard that it was difficult to remove, is what caused this man to give it up. I would imagine you'd have to eat a great deal of high fat cheese everyday to cause narrowing of your arteries to that extent. I eat cheese and love it, but I only have small amounts. Everything in moderation is the key. I don't eat whole grains and only gluten-free when I do. I rarely if ever, eat gluten-free bread. No wheat in my diet whatsoever. The late Dr. Pritigin, who became famous for his Pritigin diet and wrote several books on the subject. He excluded all fats from his diet and after 5 or so years on the diet, suddenly died. An autopsy was performed and it was discovered that arteries were exceptionally clean and devoid of any arterial plaque. He apparently died of heart failure and medical professionals believe it was because his diet was extreme and may have actually weakened his heart. My mother ate cheese daily and lived to be 91, without any heart disease. She was active for much of her life and was of normal weight for her petite size. Her cholesterol would fluctuate from time to time and was advised to go on prescription drugs but she couldn't tolerate any of them. Was it just luck and good genes that she lived to be 91 or was it because of the fact that she had a varied diet in which she ate small amounts of most of the things this man considers should be eliminated from a healthy diet? I will say one of the things my mother rarely ever ate was baked goods including breads and junk foods like potato chips, although she occasionally ate a pretzel or two.

    Vegan, as raw as possible is the best, no oil, salt or sugar. (Use the better oils, uncooked, like olive oil, coconut oil or avocado are better for your body. NO CANOLA OIL.) So a coke is technically vegan but not the goal! Attend a phenomenal workshop that takes place once a year.

    Spaghetti: a healthy alternative: peel a zucchini, spiral it and cut with scissors. Sauce: Chop in food processor: fresh tomatoes, red onion, basil, garlic clove, olive oil, lemon juice. By the way, don't be afraid of carbs, they give you energy, especially fruit in the morning but but if you eat a lot of carbs and just sit around, like at your desk, you'll gain weight.

    LCHF eating, tells me that using fats in my diet, sends the message of satiety to my brain.
    A gram of fat has about 9 calories, while a gram of carbohydrate or protein has about 4 calories. Also the fat does not spike your Insulin level, like carbohydrates do. You really do have to be SMART.

    Usually love your videos but this one lost me at the very start in correlating cheese in production pipes to how cheese is therefore bad for your body🧐 That’s not how it works in digestion. For someone who is not Lactose intolerant, cheese can be enjoyed in moderation as part of a healthy diet…it’s not evil. Also, olive oil added to the vegetables would actually help nutrient absorption and satisfaction. Using measured amounts of oil/butter/cheese etc would enable this to be a lifestyle /“way of eating” instead of a temporary diet choked down for a short time while you’re trying to lose weight. Ask the millions who try the cabbage soup diet every year.

    I go by keeping the caloric intake low. I don’t care if I have fatty food or carbs etc. but those foods will be high in calories, so gotta keep portions low.

    Do a little bit of math on what you eat in a day, and you’ll realize how damaging a few pieces of chocolate are for example. You may have a breakfast that is 500 calories. And then you learn those four pieces of chocolate you chose to eat is 150 calories. I could easily eat a bar in a day. Bad idea!

    And some people burn more calories than others naturally. I’m guessing height plays a part, but also depends on what you do for work for example.

    And sone healthy foods are also high on calories. So be careful. (Hazel nuts for example)

    At my height weight and activity level, i can only eat 1600 or so calories a day to keep my weight I believe.
