Guess Which Food Is Healthier (SHOCKING)

3 Dangerous Ingredients to Avoid – Wallet Cutout Card:

Learn how to read nutrition labels and spot the top three ingredients to avoid.

0:00 Introduction: Which food is healthier?
0:52 Nutrition facts
2:43 Ultra-processed foods
5:03 How to read nutrition labels
5:10 Top ingredients to avoid

Let’s compare the nutrition facts of Product A and Product B to see which food is healthier. Product A contains 29 grams of total fat, 4 grams of saturated fat, 17 grams of carbohydrates, and 1 gram of sugar.

Product B contains 8 grams of total fat, 1 gram of saturated fat, 16 grams of carbohydrates, and 0 grams of sugar. Based on these nutrition facts, which food is healthier?

Product A is an avocado, and Product B is Doritos! Doritos contain corn, vegetable oil, maltodextrin, monosodium glutamate, dextrose, and many other poor ingredients—yet you may have thought Product B was the healthier food.

You can't rely on nutritional facts alone to determine whether a food is healthy; you must look at the ingredients.

Food is “that which is eaten to sustain life, provide energy, and promote the growth and repair of tissues.” Ultra-processed foods do not align with this definition! I believe that of everything that causes disease and destroys your health, ultra-processed foods are the most significant factor.

If you want to know which food is healthy, you should ignore nutrition facts and go right to the ingredients. Here are 3 ingredients you’ll want to avoid:
1. Seed oils
2. All forms of sugar
3. Starches

Dr. Eric Berg received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1988. His use of “doctor” or “Dr.” in relation to himself solely refers to that degree. Dr. Berg is a licensed chiropractor in Virginia, California, and Louisiana, but he no longer practices chiropractic in any state and does not see patients, so he can focus on educating people as a full-time activity, yet he maintains an active license. This video is for general informational purposes only. It should not be used to self-diagnose, and it is not a substitute for a medical exam, cure, treatment, diagnosis, prescription, or recommendation. It does not create a doctor-patient relationship between Dr. Berg and you. You should not make any change in your health regimen or diet before first consulting a physician and obtaining a medical exam, diagnosis, and recommendation. Always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition.

Thanks for watching! I hope this explains how a nutrition facts label can be misleading. I’ll see you in the next video.

    It’s truly amazing how invested you are in educating us to live better healthier lives Dr Berg. My grocery list has completely changed because of your advice. My approach to food and exercise and other things one would never even think about have completely changed.

    My optometrist, dentist and general practitioner are impressed when I go for my check ups and my optometrist was so impressed with how my eyes improved after I implemented your advice that he cracked open a notebook and listened to ME giving him advice on eye health instead of the other way around. If it were not for you, I’d probably be overweight, wearing glasses and addicted to energy drinks but today I’m in the best shape I’ve been in for years.

    You’re my hero, and the only true doctor in my life.

    • @nancyk5203 says:

      Please…where does one find the specific eye advice you mention?


      Same here. Where I live, real organic food without all of the extra ultra processed ingredients is actually relatively affordable, so it was an easy change. I was getting really out of shape and had a belly, but after just 3 weeks of taking Dr. Berg’s diet, I lost 20 lbs. and had more energy than I’ve had in years. I also checked out his video on weightlifting and have been doing the single set workouts once a week and now I have a 6-pack. People I work with have made comments to me about how I look great and how even my mental state has improved. Who knew eating right relieves stress, nervousness, and depression? well, I do now.

    I died laughing,,, this was funny in a diabolical way. How much we poison ourselves. On a separate note I wish dr berg would talk about alternatives to avocado. Those of us who live in super hot boiling countries don’t have access to this at all. Avocado, berries and olives are usually found only in the colder places.

    • @NoName88837 says:

      I’m in a colder place (Scotland) and my Avocados usually come from Israel, Mexico or Peru. I didn’t know those were cold places.

    • @Carol-wq9fr says:

      Hmmm avocados and olives grow in warmer climates like Mexico Italy Spain. Where do you live???

      I think you’re wrong about avocados, it’s mostly always summer in the Bahamas and I have some of the best avocados you can find.

    Eating healthy has become a real challenge. Thanks Doc for your videos 😊

    • @shawnlewis1918 says:

      The longer you do it the easier it gets. After a couple of years doing this, fast food and ultra processed foods don’t even sound appetizing anymore, I thank God for that! The few times I’ve tried it in the past over a year ago I could feel the grease coat my mouth, it felt so gross that after a couple of bites I threw it in the trash. I never felt the grease in my mouth before I changed my diet but I do now, stay the course you will get there. For example, I used to love chicken fried chicken and the gravy but when I eat out which isn’t often, I’ll have someone with me who’ll order it, I have no desire for that crap anymore. It’s a nice feeling!

    • @zzygyy says:

      ​@shawnlewis1918 been eating healthy for a year and half, junk food upsets my stomach after eating it. Really weird how the body reacts

    • @shawnlewis1918 says:

      @@zzygyy Yep….on any given Saturday I will still splurge some on certain things like pizza or higher carb foods but if I over do it I can feel the blood sugar and insulin rising to insane levels where I used could never feel that sensation, it’s like my body has become way more sensitive to junk carbs now so it’s a deterrent from doing it often. Started keto about 3 years ago and switched over the carnivore the last several months, diet has become very simple and easy. Some would say boring but I now crave bacon and pasture raised eggs and juicy marbled red meat with grass fed butter and garlic on it! Not boring at all for me personally. Simple rule is if it doesn’t sound good in the moment then you aren’t really hungry and wait a few more hours, you will know when it’s time to eat when my carnivore items sound good again I know it’s time to consume!

      Happy that you found it useful!

  • @sherynngofa6175 says:

    You provided a masterful argument against ultra processed foods; they are not food.

  • @user-fo8cs6ee3k says:

    idk man i actually picked A, i thought “daaang what food has all that fat and all that fiber??” i usually count the carbs then substract the fiber

  • @a.williams45 says:

    I completely agree with you, Dr Berg. The real problem with food nowadays is “fake and toxic” vs “real and nutritious” where all toxic ingredients are the culprits causing multiple health problems. Thank you 🙏🏻

  • @zil6470 says:

    Thanks Dr Berg!
    May God Bless You and your loved ones!

  • @melkerner says:

    I read the label and if it contains seed oils, HFCS or added sugars beyond reason or maltodextrin I put it back on the shelf and move on.

    • @Drberg says:

      Yes, thanks for adding this.

    • @divinewon73 says:

      All food colors are carcinogenic… It was determined so in the 1970s when the FDA was established and advise companies they could not use artificial coloring. The companies merely tweaked the artificial coloring on a molecular level, and kept using them anyway. The chemicals add to shelf life; natural coloring does not.

  • @JeanineLaMonica_fem says:

    When I read a food label, I am looking at ingredients, protein, and fiber, so when a label doesn’t have fiber, I don’t trust it.

    Also “Flavour enhancers” is another name for MSG. They get away with hiding their crap under other “fancy names” to make it sound “healthy” or pass as “harmless”.
