Food refining has brought us all four of the food toxins destroying our health: white flour, white sugar and HFCS, industrial seed oils and processed soy products. It has also brought us chemical additives and preservatives, some with known negative effects and others with effects still unknown.
Processed and refined foods are usually the foods that you find in the aisles of your local grocery store. Which include your cookies, Chips, pies, sodas, teas, and etc. If you are serious about losing weight it is imperative that you find a way to eliminate these processed foods from your diet. These foods can not only trip up your weight loss efforts but, they can be harmful to your health. New research is revealing the harm these newfangled processed foods have on us almost every day. A study was recently published demonstrating that emulsifiers used in packaged foods ranging from mayonnaise to bread to ice cream increase intestinal permeability (“leaky gut”) and cause a chain reaction of inflammation and autoimmune disease.
If you must snack, make it a healthy snack. Choose real food snacks like:
- Nuts, Seeds, Raisins. (Be careful snacking on nuts because they carry a lot of calories. To lose weight you have to create a caloric deficit).
- Real fruits. (Keep your fruit consumption to a minimum while starting your weight loss journey).
