In this video I wanted to talk about foods I try to keep out of my diet. I want to stress the word, “moderation” to you guys, though. As long as you are consistent with your healthy lifestyle, it is okay to eat whatever you want from time to time. When you abuse the privileges of eating foods in moderation, it could complicate your everyday lifestyle without you even knowing it. I am not telling you to banish these foods out of your diet completely, but because they don’t provide any health benefits, it makes sense to scale back.
3 words for you guys: Mind. Over. Matter.
1. PROCESSED MEATS
(FILLED WITH SODIUM + NITRATE/NITRITES)
-I usually avoid all casings of mystery meat.
-I don’t eat red meat, but for those that do, moderation is best.
-As for poultry; you know you always grabbed the Ranch dressing at your Grandma’s on Thanksgiving to dip that turkey in. Why? Because it’s bland and unprocessed. That’s how you know it’s healthy. That is the type of meat I would probably eat.
-The quality of the source is the underlying factor of healthy dieting.
2. ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS
(I TRULY BELIEVE ALL FOODS CONTAINING ARTIFICIAL SUBSTITUTES TO SUGAR CANE AREN’T GOOD FOR OUR HEALTH)
-Refined sugars too.
-Coconut Sugars, Blackstrap Molasses, Manuka Honey are replacements for those that need sweeteners daily, but all sugar in moderation is best.
3. WHITE FLOURED GRAINS
(ANY WHITE BREADS, RICES, PASTAS
-Poses no health benefits when you compare it to whole grain sources of flour.
-If you are trying to lose weight, a diet with white floured foods can hamper the process.
-Some white floured foods have a high sugar content.
(GMO’S OUT THE ASS. PICK AND CHOOSE YOUR BATTLES WISELY)
-Nothing else really to say here, candy is bad. We all know it. But we still eat it, because we love refined sugar. This was the hardest thing for me to cut out of my diet but from time to time should be okay for someone who lives an active lifestyle.
5. FRIED FOOD
(FRYING FOOD IN CERTAIN OILS AT HIGH TEMPERATURES CAN COMPROMISE THE FOOD AND POTENTIALLY KILL OFF ALL THE NUTRIENTS THAT FOOD CAN OFFER)
-Frying food in certain oils at high temperatures compromises the food and all benefits the food can offer.
-Asparagine is an amino acid that is found in many vegetables, with higher concentrations in some varieties of potatoes.
-When frying, oils skyrocket to high temperatures that are unhealthy. When this happens in the presence of certain sugars, asparagine (an amino acid which is a building block of protein) can form acrylamide.
-Regardless of what method you use to cook your food, make sure you don’t OVERHEAT or OVERCOOK your food to the point where you kill off all nutrients and compromise the benefits.
