good morning. i'm meteorologist kari hall. we are slowly warming. we are in the mid to upper 50s. a lot of sunshines and highs in the 70s and low 80s across the bay area. in san francisco, a high of 74. 85 in the north bay. the east bay, 82 degrees. we will have mid 80s in the tri-valley today. a little warmer than yesterday. the warming trend continues as we head into tomorrow. also, expect breezy winds throughout the day. >> and that's your latest forecast. savannah? >> all right, dylan, thank you. now to our special series what the he can are you eating where we're remaking your favorite foods into healthier option. today nutritionest expert jay bauer tackled pizza, and this morning it's all about the burger. >> here in america the hamburger has pretty much become our national food. in fact, we eat more meat than any other country in the world, and reports show americans collectively eat over 50 billion
8:22 am
burgers a year. holy cow, literally. so what's the beef with your diet? well, all hamburgers are not created equal. the type of patty, portion size, choice of bun and toppings can mean the difference between a relatively healthy or unhealthy me. i'll start with the bright side. if we're talking about a standard backyard burger on a classic bun, no double decker action piled with lettuce, tomato tomatoes, pickles and onions the sandwich will run you between 300 and 500 calories, so not so bad, right. why the do burgers get a bad rap because restaurants and creative chefs have turned them into fattening monstross industries from supersize the buns toasted with bun and slathered with mayo and special cause to topping like cheese, bacon and fried onions and some burgers have more than 1,000 calories and load your system with a day's
8:23 am
worth of saturate the fat. that's the type of fat that can rates risk for heart attacks and diabetes. the bottom lines, are burgers grillworthy? of course, but whenever possible prepare your own burgers at home so that you can have full control over what goes in and what stays out. stick with ground meats that are at least 90% lean. poultry your church and whole grain buns piled with lettuce, tomato onions and even sauteed mushrooms and sliced avocado. love cheeseburgers, a slice will suffice, and one to two squirts of ketchup, mustard, barbecue sauce and even salsa work well, too, and dig in. as for the times you're dining out in the restaurant i have three words. keep it simple. stick with a standard burger, pile on the produce and consider disc the top bun to save yourself 100 calories. now that you know what the heck you're eating, build a better
8:24 am
burger today. >> all right. joy, got our marching orders. good morning. >> good morning. >> so you're building a better burger. the first thing that's really key is the kind of meat you choose. >> that's right. >> so when you're making a burger at home and you're in the grocery store because it can get overwhelming with all the pack amsa, just want to make sure whether it's beef, whether it's chicken or turkey that it's at least 90% lean, so usually you tend to see 93/7, 93% lean and 7% fat. >> that's good. >> and then you know that your burger is going to be low in calories and packed with protein. >> that's great. some people cannot give up the bred. >> and you don't have to. when it comes to the bun go for whole grain, not necessarily because you're going to save a lot of calories because you're going to shower your body with extra nutrition, whole grain buns, standard buns clock in at about 140 or go for the sandwich flats which are 100 calories. english muffins come in whole grain, whole grain pita breads.
8:25 am
some people are carbs phobic and don't like any carbs, you could wrap your burger if you want in lettuce leaves or grill port blah mush rum caps. >> that's actually pretty tasty. >> you're killing me with the lettuce leaves though but i'll gain you back as a fact. i'll show you how to make a bacon cheeseburger. >> okay. typically a bacon cheese burger is 1,100 calories. my version is only 425. >> how did you do it, joy? >> have a whole grain bun and swapped the fatty pork bacon for lean turkey bacon, one slice of reduced fat cheese because it automatically will trim off 40 calories and i have my more than 90% leeuwenburger, lettuce, tomato, mustard, ketchup, if you want, low-fat mayo? i'd split it with you, and gets us down to 212.5. taste it. >> this is really good.
8:26 am
>> isn't that good. >> 225 calories. tomorrow she will a very good morning to you. it's 8:26. this one goes beyond making yourself at home. police have arrested a man they say was squatting in a luxury mansion. on top of it all, he was selling the home's expensive artwork off the walls. he is accused of selling fine art worth more than $300,000. investigators say he was illegally living in the mansion once owned by minor. he declared bankruptcy two years ago and hasn't been living there since. police have managed to track down all but two of the stolen pieces of art. check the morning commute out there, see how things are rolling. >> a little bit of a mess.
8:27 am

busters," you know is a very powerful emotional statement. >> like a merchant ivory film. >> and then the other movies "lost in translation," that's more acting "and people like st. vincent's" very much. >> do you have one? >> i do like one "brooklyn flower" and i thought i should quit because i couldn't do any better than that, perfectly directed and i didn't think i could act any better than that but this one may be the best one. >> called "rock the kasbah" and bruce willis agrees you're as good as you've ever been in this movie so there's that. >> which is night. >> bill murray, thanks. >> "rock the kasbah" is in theaters this friday. savannah. >> all right, matt, thanks so much. coming up next, emmy winner jeff daniels is here to tell us about his new role in the steve jobs movie. just discussing, should i get rid of the throw pillow. >> lose it. >> so done

we are back now at 8:40 with one of hollywood's most ver tile stars jeff daniels and in the movie "steve jobs" he plays a role where he doesn't shy away from taking. >> you're issuing contradictory statement, you make people miserable and our top engineers are fleeing to dell, sung, and we've lost hundreds of millions in value and i'm the ceo of apple, steve, that's my resume. >> boom. jeff daniels, good morning. that's a mouthful. >> a gooum couple words in that. >> this is an aaron sorkin movie which means a particular thing and usually it means a lot of talking, a lot of dialogue and i have to say watching it i just stand in awe of your ability to let it roll off the tongue as though it's naturally coming to
8:41 am
you. >> how do you do that? >> it's hard but you want hard, you want difficult. you want a challenge, and with aaron it's always heavy with tie log and takes more time leading up to it like on "newsroom" you would spend your weekend, forget doing anything, spend your weekend so by sunday night you would know the whole week because if you didn't and now we're going on to the set and you're going in sorkin speed you're left behind. >> and just in case anybody has any impression aaron is not the kind of writer/director who says, sure, just ad lib or this is just a suggestion. have your way with my words it's like you've got to have it right down to the punctuation mark? it's word for word and that's what broadway is. playwrights, you don't ad lib, oh, i don't have to write it. i did "the hours" ma meryl streep and she was walking in and you've got david here, do i have to write, it too, and
8:42 am
whenever you get an aaron sorkin, great, he writes, it i tact? here you are playing a real person john scully and as i understand it you had a chance to meet with him as well. did that add to your portrait, because as you've said in interviews in the past you are not trying to do an impersonation of john scully. >> it's really a dramatization of events and people and john was a great source of information. he really helped, and you could still see how much the relationsh relationship mattered to john years and years later. they didn't get to reconcile, a betrayal according to steve and it ended like that and now steve's gone. there's regret there and pain there, and i was able to put that into the movie and give john a complete picture. >> the movie is not without controversy, i mean, for example, apple ceo tom cook has talked about it, la uralene
8:43 am
jobs, what do you make of that in. >> i don't care because at the end of the day he's a great historical figure. he changed the world. henry ford change the the world and thomas edison, edison, oppenheimer, steve was one of those guys, and those guys that create -- the creative genius that goes behind those guys, they are not simple people, and i love that we had -- we have the opportunity to showcase one of the great creative visionaries that the world has ever had and that means the good and the bad. >> speaking of creative, you are also in "the martian," got that role and going on tour with your son's band. tell me about that. >> the ben daniels band we start friday and go out for november because that's what an actor should do, pick up a guy tar and go to clubs and opera houses and play with his son's band because that makes you young. >> exactly. just hold on. >> that's right. >> jeff daniels, thank you so much, always a pleasure and "steve jobs" from our sister company universal is playing in select theaters and, bands nationwide. >> coming up, a live performance

9:08 am
measures of security. >> well, one expert, what they call i guess they are hackers but they are hackers who say they do good, and they say that it's a generational gap that people still don't get, that younger kid, even though we lecture them about not putting up bad pictures, not putting up the nude selfies that were so popular with the celebrities, that older generation, people around our age, still don't get, how vulnerable we are, and that the younger kids that we lecture do, but you just would think brennan of all people, jeh johnson, homeland security secretary. >> nothing so far classified but who knows where that goes. >> don't know. >> very sensitive information, and security clearance information, so moving on to another topic, michelle obama yesterday at white house is launching her better make room initiative. it's encouraging teens to continue their education after high school, and she shared some tips on how to communicate with
