Be a Nutrition Detective!

Health

The SAD (Standard American Diet) is full of “Non-Food”.  We have been tricked into thinking these foods are “normal” and that we are deprived when we eat whole, natural foods.  This is a far cry from normal folks!  Should being tired all the time be normal? Should being overweight be normal?  Should hypo-thyroidism be normal?  Diabetes?  High Cholesterol?  Depression?  These are all affects of the Standard American Diet and it IS “SAD”.  I would love to help you learn how to use and love REAL food.  Use the “contact me” button above to get in touch, but in the mean time, be a nutrition detective by:
1 – Don’t pay attention to the advertising on the front of the box.  They are just trying to get you to buy the product and The claims are misleading.
2 – Try to stay away from things that contain more than 5 ingredients.
3 – The first ingredient listed is what is the largest quantity of what’s in the package.  Apple Jacks’ first ingredient is sugar.  So basically, eating it is like having a bowl of sugar with some added fiber and color.
4 – Look for these “no no” ingredients and try to stay away from them.  High fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oil, artificial colors and dyes, MSG.  These things are toxic and create cravings.  High fructose corn syrup is in SO many things.  It is one of the major causes of childhood obesity, diabetes and disease.
5 – Check the fiber content and make sure it has at least 2 grams.

We need to realize that when we ingest chemicals that our body doesn’t recognize as food, it just stores it as a toxin.  These toxins build up and cause disease (and fat).  When moving to a whole food, mostly plant based diet, you can live life to the fullest, eliminate cravings and achieve your ultimate weight.
