trans-fatsWell there’s a lot of things and I mean a lot of things not to eat. There are the obvious things like any food product with trans fat (any). If you want a heart attack eat trans fats. It’s gained a lot of
attention lately for not breaking down and doing a great job of clogging your arteries and messing your health up. Although reading the nutrition facts on the back of a food item can be deceiving (more about that later) seeing trans fat on it is very straight forward and should be avoided unless you hate your life.

High fructose corn syrup has become another enemy of the public. The fact that they released ads saying it was good to eat and a healthy part of your diet shows how desperate they are. It is not healthy, it is made with disgusting chemicals, it’s bad for your digestion, and it will make you gain weight. It takes less calories to digest and it digests so fast you get insulin spikes which is very bad for your liver and most of your body. Just stay away from it as best you can even with that makes drinking diet cola with aspartame. Aspartame is an artificial sweetener that is said to be safe and really not proven otherwise although it is likely carcinogenic. Try natural alternatives like Blue Sky soda which uses only real sugar. Try alternative sweeteners like stevia, agave, or honey.

Processed foods in general are a bad idea. They rob you of the nutrients and enzymes you should be getting, they digest in less than healthy ways, and the method in which they are processed can be dangerous (although not usually).

Milk. Ew, just ew.

These are a couple basic things to avoid. I will add much more down the line. Until then just remember what you eat equates to how you feel, how healthy/unhealthy you are and how often you get sick. So while the rewards aren’t instant just remember you it’s your life and it’s your choice to eat well and reap the benefits that come in time and are maintained once achieved.

Be healthy!
