Hi guys, I am shooting this short video from my car, because I want to update you on the news that I heard this morning on the radio as well as in the online newspapers from Belgium about our minister of health, Maggie De Block who is also an MD. I will show a picture of her up here. She is proposing that in the Belgian supermarkets and grocery stores we are going to use a kind of nutri-label it’s not obliged by the sellers of the products, but the nutri-label should state how healthy a product is. It takes into consideration the vitamins, the fiber, the calories, the saturated fats, and the sugar. I like to give some points of critique on this proposed label. Because this nutri-label is not individualized to the persons needs. Minister Maggie De Block, who is an MD, is forgetting that the number one priority for health is bodyweight… thus… the amount of calories taken in every day and the calorie balance. If you’re taking in more calories than you burn, you will gain weight. If you take in less than you burn, you will lose weight. That’s the number one priority for health. The second priority is the quality of the food the micronutrients, vitamins and fiber. So even very clean food, if taken in in limitless amounts, will be unhealthy, if you’re taking in way too much calories every day. So first point of critique these labels will not be individualized second point of critique who is saying what is healthy, because it’s not taking into consideration the amount of calories you can eat What will the label do? A certain label up to a quantity of calories? And another label if you’re taking in too many calories? A next point of critique is that this label can impossibly take into consideration all the micronutrients and vitamins that are in it. For example, if you like to eat Brasil nuts, that are very healthy because they contain the good fats as well as Selenium. It’s easy to give it a healthy label, but it’s not difficult to take in more than a few hands of Brasil nuts which are going to give you way too many calories and an excess of Selenium. So these are just my points of critique and let’s take another look at Maggie De Block, our MD, Minister of Health, and let’s not forget that the number one priority is bodyweight and calorie balance. My needs as a lifter, working out several times a week, very hard and intensely, with a lot of muscle mass and a low bodyfat percentage will be probably very different from our Minister of Health’s needs. Right? Okay, guys, thank you for watching, thank you for watching and see you in a next episode of how to lose fat series.
