Bethy’s fav quote of the day

Bethy’s tip of the day…Be careful with hummus!!

I watch people scarf up the hummus (even with carrots and celery sticks) believing that they are consuming a great source of protein! Au contraire peeps!!! Check out the label for yourself and what do you see?

Hummus label
HMMM, yes it’s a great source of FAT!! In fact, 50 out of 70 calories per serving (3/4) of it are FAT! And you consume WAY more than the 2 tablespoon serving size.

"How do you know that I eat WAY too much hummus (and other fatty stuff,) Bethy?"

I'm glad that you asked cuz I’ve watched ya ingest hundreds of calories worth of unneeded fat. If more than half of your calorie consumption comes from fat, than I can guarantee that half of your body will be comprised of fat. You are what you eat …period end of story. I can always identify folks that ingest too much fat because they accumulate more lumps and bumps of fat, on their person, than those who take in 30% or less of their daily calories from fat.

I don’t know where your logic came from that eating foods, that are comprised of mostly fat, such as hummus, bacon, sausages (yes, even the turkey ones) and cheeses are great sources of protein. In fact, the one that baffles me the most is that you are consuming sugary candy bars (AKA "protein bars,") with added “protein” or should I say added “calories” and are believing that you are consuming a wonderful source of protein. So???…the added calories from protein cancel out the sugar???? Fill me in on this one please!

Bethy to the rescue

I want to help you make better food choices, without having to diet, just by cutting out (or at least cutting down on) some “killer foods”  that you don’t realize are reeking havoc on your bod and your life. I have an entire chapter in my upcoming book, Move Your Assets: From the chair not the bank!, devoted to keeping you away from FAT and other sources of CRAP but don’t get me started right now and let me leave you with this amazing advice that could change your life and your bod…

-    Read the labels and make sure you consume very little of the foods that have more than ½ of their calories from fat;  make sure sugar is NOT one of their first five ingredients (even if “high in protein” is its claim to fame)

– Yes there are good fats (since I know you were just going to ask me about them) and you can read about them HERE. You still want to consume these in moderation! I love olive oil too but most oils contain 120 calories per tbspn so use caution please!!

-    Hire me to go on shopping excursions, clean your pantry and help you and your family and friends learn to read labels, so that you don’t make unhealthy choices that you believe are healthy. For more info contact me: Bethannesinfo@aol.com
