How much thought do you put into what you eat?
I mean think about that for a minute.
If you want to get into great health feel your best and get into the best physical shape of your life then it’s a good idea to be armed with this information when your making your decisions what to put in your protein hole. If you call it a cake hole, that might be a problem…lol!!!
80% of how you look and feel is attributed to what you eat?????????????
You can workout till the cows come home…where the hell do those cows go during the day anyways? Lol!! You can work out till the cows come home but you cannot outtrain a bad diet. You cant outsmart mother nature. If you are nutrient starved your body will slowly start to rebel against you!!!
In our fast-paced society, eating is often done with little or no thought as to what exactly it is being ingested. Excess body fat is a direct outcome of this hurried, anti-nutrient poor nutrition. Even if you have the best intentions with your diet, you are likely frustrated and fed up with extra pounds, sore joints and foggy head!!
I don't blame you for being confused about what you should eat. The media surely doesn't help. One day the talking heads want you to give up all fats. The next day carbs are the culprit, and then acai berries become the holy grail of weight loss. What the fuck is going on already????
The food manufacturers increase confusion by printing misleading labels and bogus health claims.
Sometimes it seems like the whole system is set up to confuse and frustrate you into buying the latest and greatest packaged bullshit..i mean franken food!!
The bottom line is that your body and your health is largely a result of what you eat, so the foods that you put into your body should be carefully selected along with your thoughts…oh I digress. More on this later but for now lets just stick to foods.
It's time to re-examine what you eat.
It all starts with reading nutritional labels. The nutritional content and ingredient list will give you everything you need to know about the quality of the food item. …or will it? That’s what the powers that be want you to believe. Misleading nutrition labels…and again more on this later.
Lets just stick to some things the labels say and these are just 5 among the many things you should steer clear of!
These should raise a red flag when you turn over that package and find them listed and then put them right back on the shelf where you got them because they have no place in your cart or basket!!
Red Flagged Ingredient #1: High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)
HFCS is a manmade sugar, derived predominantly from genetically modified corn. The sweet concoction has been shown to promote binges and hysterical hunger, and wrecks havoc on your blood sugar levels, promoting fat storage.
The introduction of HFCS into our food supply directly paralleled a 47% spike in Type 2 Diabetes cases as well as an 80% increase in obesity. Food manufacturers use HFCS in many mainstream products, including the following:
Sauces (including ketchup) Yogurt Energy Bars Soft Drinks / Fruit Juices Processed baked goods Cereals Crackers Ice Cream Salad Dressing Most packaged snack foods
Red Flagged Ingredient #2: Hydrogenated Fat / Partially Hydrogenated Fat (Trans Fat)
Hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated fats have undergone such extensive processing that the chemical structure has changed from a “cis” shape, which the human body recognizes and utilizes, to a “trans” shape, which is foreign and destructive to human physiology.
Check each food label for the word ‘hydrogenated' and avoid it diligently. Cutting out hydrogenated fats is a simple set towards looking and feeling your best.
Red Flagged Ingredient #3: Aspartame
Aspartame is an artificial sweetener that was denied 8 times by the FDA before being approved in 1973. Many scientists objected the approval, claiming that aspartame hadn't been proven safe for use as a food additive.
MIT neuroscientist, Richard Wurtman, researched the effects of aspartame and concluded that it promotes cravings for foods high in calories and carbohydrates. Though aspartame is caloriefree it still causes insulin to be released, which job is to stow away sugar – when this sugar is not available, the result is often hypoglycemia and severe hunger. Not exactly a recipe for weight loss or good health!!
Red Flagged Ingredient #4: White Sugar
White sugar comes from the juice of a sugar cane plant that has undergone an intensive refining process. In this process all of the enzymes, fiber, vitamins and minerals are destroyed, rendering it nutritionally void. White sugar is also extremely high in calories, which your body loves to store away in fat cells.
Refined sugar has been linked to inflammation, a weakened immune system, hyperactivity, ADD, mental and emotional disorders, dental cavities, hypoglycemia, enlargement of the liver and kidneys, and an imbalance of neurotransmitters in the brain. All that and it leads to weight gain and fricking wrinkles!! AGE= advanced end glycation…yikes!! Research that one!
Red Flagged Ingredient #5: White Flour
White flour comes from natural whole wheat that has been stripped of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. This results in a nutritionally void product that is packed with calories that release quickly into your system, creating a spike in blood sugar. As you know, this promotes fat storage and leads to hysterical hunger and cravings. And who needs that????????????
So cut these 5 items right out of your diet and your families diet right now!! And by family I mean your fur babies as well as your tiny human ones!!
Nobody and no body needs this shittt! Ok go!
