People tend to think about food in terms of what it does to their bodies, i.e. it makes you fat, it keeps you trim… many don’t stop to think about the effect food has on their minds.
Food can make you full of energy, positive, razor sharp focused, clear minded, motivated, relaxed… or it can make you feel like crap, chronically tired, depressed, anxious, negative…
The following foods are so bad for your mind, and body, that I really can’t see any reason to eat them.
Not only do they have close to zero nutritional value, but they also give your body a nice dose of harmful toxins.
Avoid these at all costs and start to feel boundless energy and zest for life. Not to mention the slimming effects…
Chemicals, including perfluorooctanoic acid, in the lining of the bag, are part of a class of compounds that may be linked to infertility in humans. In animal testing, the chemicals cause liver, testicular, and pancreatic cancer. Studies show that microwaving causes the chemicals to vaporize and migrate into your popcorn.
In fact, getting rid of your microwave altogether is probably one of the best things you can do to improve your overall health.
Many people buy wheat bread as opposed to white bread because they believe it is more nutritious.
What they don’t know is that wheat is often contaminated with toxins and no matter what the form, wheat, whole wheat, cracked wheat, sprouted wheat… they will all be capable of causing the same problems including: celiac disease, IBS, rheumatoid arthritis, headaches, infertility, and developmental delay in children.
Intolerance to wheat is far more common than doctors typically recognize. The human body hasn’t evolved to digest it. Wheat, and nearly all other grains, convert to sugar in the bloodstream, and rapidly accelerate aging and chronic illness in most people.
Most of us should limit or avoid wheat altogether.
An average doughnut will give you about 200 to 300 calories, mostly from sugar, and few other nutrients.
It will throw off your blood sugar and won’t stay with you so you’ll be hungry again soon.
Apart from the numerous negative physiological effects of sugar, which I won’t mention here, it can cause a rapid rise of adrenaline, hyperactivity, anxiety, difficulty concentrating, and crankiness. It can reduce learning capacity, and increase in delta, alpha, and theta brain waves which can alter your mind’s ability to think clearly. It can also cause depression, increase your risk of Alzheimer’s disease, worsen symptoms of ADHD, and even cause antisocial behaviour.
One can of soda, for example, has about 10 teaspoons of sugar, 150 calories, 30 to 55 mg of caffeine, and is loaded with artificial food colours and sulphites. The diet varieties are also problematic as they are filled with harmful artificial sweeteners like aspartame.
Studies have linked soda drinks to osteoporosis, obesity, tooth decay and heart disease. Plus, drinking all that sugar will likely suppress your appetite for healthy foods, which paves the way for nutrient deficiencies.
If you regularly drink soda, regular or diet, eliminating it from your diet is one of the simplest and most profound health improvements you can make.
FRENCH FRIES & CHIPS
Potatoes are bad enough when consumed in their raw state, as their simple sugars are rapidly converted to glucose that raises insulin levels and can devastate your health. But when they are cooked in trans fat at high temperatures, all sorts of interesting and very unpleasant things occur.
Anything that is fried, even vegetables, has the issue of trans fat and the potent cancer-causing substance acrylamide.
Foods that are fried in vegetable oils like canola, soybean, safflower, corn, and other seed and nut oils are particularly problematic. These polyunsaturated fats easily become rancid when exposed to oxygen and produce large amounts of damaging free radicals in the body.
These oils can cause aging, clotting, inflammation, weight gain and even cancer.
Due to its high saturated fat content, coconut oil is extremely stable and is not damaged by the high temperatures of cooking. This is why coconut oil should be the only oil you use to cook with.
ORANGE JUICE (AND ALL FRUIT JUICE)
Fruit juice has about eight full teaspoons of sugar per eight-ounce glass. This sugar is typically a fruit sugar called fructose, which is every bit as dangerous as regular table sugar since it will also cause a major increase in insulin levels.
Many commercial orange juices are contaminated with mould from damaged fruit that are processed. So if you drink commercial orange juice regularly you will be exposed to these mould toxins.
This doesn’t mean that you should avoid fruit, just fruit juice. When the fruit is intact and whole, its fiber will somewhat moderate the release of fructose into the bloodstream as well as somewhat moderate insulin release.
Avoid eating these foods and start to notice a surge in energy, mental clarity and a slimmer figure, in as little as 7 days.
