The Danger of Processed Foods

Processed FoodsOther than sugar, processed foods are the most important type of food to avoid. But what exactly are processed foods? In short, they’re any food that’s been altered from its natural state in order to improve the taste or increase the shelf life. That means most of them are full of sugar and harmful chemicals that make it very difficult for your body to burn fat.

In order to explain why, I’ll need to give you a quick anatomy lesson. The most important organ for losing fat and getting in shape is the liver. That’s because the liver’s two main functions are to break down fat and filter out harmful substances.

If your liver is what breaks down fat, then you want it working at peak efficiency. The problem is that when it’s busy filtering out all the harmful substances found in processed food, it doesn’t have any time or energy left to break down fat. The solution is simple: Stop eating processed foods! If you cut out processed foods, your liver will cleanse itself and break down fat.

Here’s a short list of ingredients to avoid:

  • Artificial sweeteners (like aspartame and sucralose).
  • Hydrogenated oils (found in vegetable oils

Good Fats vs Bad Fats

Saturated FatsLast week I talked about the difference between good carbs and bad carbs. Unfortunately, there is just as much confusion about good fats and bad fats. Most people are under the impression that saturated fat (found mostly in meats) is bad for them, but the latest research has shown this to be untrue.

For decades Americans have been told by doctors and health gurus to cut down on saturated fat. It was thought that if people ate less saturated fat, their cholesterol would go down and they would have a reduced risk of heart disease. The problem is that when you eat less fat you have to eat more of something else, and most people eat more sugar. Ironically, sugar does more damage to the heart than any other type of food.

In other words, the advice we’ve been hearing all these years has actually caused obesity and heart disease to increase dramatically. Of course, no one wants to take the blame, but doctors and scientists are finally beginning to admit the truth: saturated fat is good for you! When you eat the right kind of fat, your body’s metabolism accelerates dramatically.

Here’s a list of fats you should … Read the rest

Not All Carbs Are Created Equal

Bad CarbsSome people have asked whether The Truth About Fat Burning Foods by Nick Pineault is a low-carb diet. Well, not exactly.

You don’t need to count carbs or put yourself in a state of ketosis. However, when you start eating healthier you’ll end up eating less carbs without even trying.

Despite what all those low-carb dieters claim, it’s okay to have some carbs in your diet. Just as long as they’re healthy carbs and you don’t overdo it. For example, carbs from fruits and vegetables are okay, but you don’t want to sit around eating bananas all day.

Here are some carbs that will not help you burn fat: Bread, pasta, wraps, chips, crackers, beans, corn, and potatoes, to name a few. Most people think whole wheat bread is healthier, but it’s not. Whole wheat bread will spike your blood sugar just as much as regular bread. In fact, whole wheat bread is at about the same level as Coca-Cola on the glycemic index!

Carbs that will help you burn fat: If you’re bummed out about giving up bread, there are alternatives such as bread made from sprouted grains. You can also have rice and less-common but delicious … Read the rest
