Food That Makes You Sick and Fat.
Sugar: Added sugar is addictive, highly fattening and a leading cause of diseases like obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Grains: Avoid grains if you need to lose weight, including bread and pasta. Gluten grains (wheat, spelt, barley and rye) are the worst. Healthier grains like rice and oats are fine if you don’t need to lose weight.
Seed- And Vegetable Oils: Soybean oil, corn oil and some others. These are processed fats with a high amount of Omega-6 fatty acids, which are harmful in excess .
Trans Fats: Chemically modified fats that are extremely bad for health. Found in some processed foods .
Artificial Sweeteners: Despite being calorie free, observational studies show a massive correlation with obesity and related diseases. If you must use sweeteners, choose Stevia.
“Diet” and “Low-Fat” Products: Most of these “health foods” aren’t healthy at all. They tend to be highly processed and loaded with sugar or artificial sweeteners. Agave syrup is just as bad as sugar.
Highly Processed Foods: Foods that are highly processed are usually low in nutrients and high in unhealthy and unnatural chemicals.
You MUST read ingredient lists. You’ll be surprised at the amount of “health foods” that can contain sugar, wheat and other nasty ingredients.
