Yogurt: The White Lie Of Major Food Corporations

Yogurt: The White Lie Of Major Food Corporations

The food and beverage industry is full of subliminal messages…

You know it and I know it.

For instance: young, skinny, sexy models having the time of their lives on a beautiful yet somehow deserted beach, popping bottles of Coca-Cola like it’s champagne.

The message being sent to your brain?

Drink Coca-Cola and you’ll be young, skinny, sexy, and adventurous, too.

But we know the facts. We’re privy to what Coca-Cola really is – a simple, sugary beverage. There’s nothing in the beverage that’s going to actually make you all of the traits I mentioned above.

And we don’t expect it to…

It’s just an incredibly effective marketing technique that Coca-Cola has been using for years, and honestly, I applaud them for it.

But there’s a difference between a product being marketed as hot and sexy and one that’s being sold as hot, sexy and healthy.

Which is why the marketing ploys of yogurt corporations are particularly sinister…

For years, yogurt has been tagged as a “health food” – a spoon-fed white lie that we’ve been indulging like an infant in a high chair that only knows one queue: “Open wide for mama!”

Every time I walk into the grocery store, I hear the false narrative playing in my mind that as a responsible husband I should grab some yogurt as a healthy snack for my wife and even for myself…

And it’s probably because I too have been strapped in the high chair by the likes of John Stamos, Michelle Kwan, and that creepy Danimals monkey.

But enough’s enough.

Here’s the truth about yogurt, why you should keep away from it, and a replacement that actually works…

Yogurt Doesn’t Improve Your Health

Yogurt doesn’t do what it says it’ll do – improve your health.

In a recent published study, researchers followed around 4,000 Spanish adults who regularly consumed yogurt for nearly 4 years…

They wanted to measure the effects that yogurt had on their overall perception of health – or in other words the consumers’ perception of their quality of life.

And the conclusion of the study was blunt…

Regularly consuming yogurt, “did not show an association with improved health-related quality of life.”

Keep in mind that this study didn’t involve measuring any physical effects of yogurt on the 4,000 individuals’ health – only a qualitative description from the participants on if they felt like yogurt actually did anything…

So should we demonize major food corporations because yogurt doesn’t make average guys and gals into the adventurous skydiving, thrill-seeking type?

Probably not.

But we can demonize them for this next one…

Yogurt Is Filled With Sugar

Why do vanilla, strawberry-banana, blueberry, key-lime pie (you get the picture) yogurts taste so good?

Well, it’s because they’re loaded with sugar…  

Yogurt contains lactose (milk sugar) and galactose, naturally, which, when left to itself isn’t going to tip your blood sugar levels…

But the problem is that they’re never left to themselves. Food companies that put yogurt on shelves pack their product with more sugar so that it’ll taste better, and as a result, sell.

Let me put this in perspective for you…

The American Heart Association recommends that men shouldn’t consume any more than 36 grams of sugar a day…

A Twinkie, what most of the world would consider as the penultimate piece of junk, contains 19 grams of sugar

Your favorite yogurthowever, probably contains more, with some bending the scales at nearly 30 grams of sugar per (dinky) serving.

A food loaded with sugar and added sugar that’s being marketed as a “health food”…

Do you see the problem here?

But for you, this sugary snack poses another threat to you in particular.

Yogurt Is Lowering Your Testosterone Levels

Listen, despite what all of the health experts are claiming these days, as a man, you need sugar…

Sugar is necessary for boosting your testosterone levels. However…

Not all sugars are created equally, and the sugar that major food corporations are adding to your yogurt, are sabotaging your testosterone, and thereby stealing from your overall quality of life, stunting your performance in the bedroom, and shriveling your muscle mass, among other negatives…

If you’re going to use sugar to your advantage as a man, you need to keep it gluten-free

But that’s a discussion for a different day…

What About Probiotics And Protein In Yogurt?

So where did yogurt distributors get the gall to label their sugary snack a health food?

Well, there are a few reasons…

Generally speaking, most yogurt contains probiotics…

Probiotics are good bacteria that help to clean out your gut and keep your digestive tract moving at a healthy pace…

But the problem is that most yogurts don’t contain enough probiotic strains to actually make a meaningful impact on your digestive health.

2017 study conducted at the University of Toronto discovered that the probiotic levels in some heavily marketed yogurts were 25 times lower than what clinical trials have consented to be effective.

Protein content is another marketing tactic that major food corporations use to promote yogurt as a health food…

But just because a food is high in protein content doesn’t mean that’s it’s a good option for your overall health and actually, for men, too much protein (more than 20% of your daily caloric intake) lowers your testosterone levels.

An example of this would be a Baby Ruth bar…

The wrapper contains a ribboned, red, yellow and blue stat on the front of it. Do you know what that stat is? “4 grams of protein.”

The marketers over at Nestle decided to market a Baby Ruth bar as a protein bar…

But you’re not fooled…

You know all too well that if you’re looking for protein, you aren’t heading down the candy aisle to pick up a Baby Ruth…

And I encourage you to adjust your thinking in the same way to the sinister marketing ploy of those little cups of suga-, I mean, yogurt.

The Man’s Alternative

So if you still want the probiotic and protein of yogurt without the sugar that poses health risks to your family and yourself and lowers your testosterone levels I recommend checking out this probiotic.

It quickly metabolizes all of the protein you digest so that it’s more effective and ready for use to build muscle…

This probiotic also cleans out your stomach so that your testosterone levels will be at their best and saves you room so that you can eat real (manly) calories instead of wasting stomach space on a cup of suga-, I mean yogurt.

Did I just make that mistake again? 

Check out the probiotic here and the next time you’re at the grocery store, don’t buy into the white lie.
