1 junkIf you’ve ever tried to lose weight, you’ve probably tried a dozen diets that have not worked. Maybe you lost weight, only to gain it back again. Or maybe the diet just wasn’t practical for your family. Perhaps it left you feeling worse than when you started. The thing about diets is that almost all of them are too extreme and too restrictive. They just aren’t sustainable.

Not only are many of them ineffective, they are potentially harmful. They may require you to spend a lot of money on questionable supplements or highly processed foods. Some may damage your metabolism, making it even more difficult to lose weight. Worst of all, the diet industry doesn’t want you to succeed! They want you to keep trying to lose weight, over and over again. Marketers are constantly trying to figure out ways to trick you into thinking that their diet or their pill is the one that will get results.

But they are misleading and deceiving you in order to get you to part with more of your hard-earned money. If you want to start to lose weight and feel better, there are 5 foods that you should never eat.

  1. Fake sugars—These chemicals are created in a lab, not a farm field, and offer no nutritional value. Worse, eating them increases sugar cravings and may contribute to cancer and other disease.
  2. White bread and other sources of “enriched flour”—White flours, where all of the grain’s natural bran and fiber has been stripped away, are very quickly converted to sugar in the body and have almost no nutritional value. They increase sugar and carb cravings and are quickly stored as fat if your cells cannot use that energy right away.
  3. Processed vegetable oils—While often considered healthy, most vegetable oils such as canola oil, soybean oil, corn oil, and margarine are highly processed and cause inflammation in the body. Recent research is implicating them as a major factor in heart disease and obesity.
  4. Fat-free foods—Again, while often labeled as healthy, most fat-free foods are highly processed and full of sugar. They lack the nutrients your body needs and will leave you with cravings and feeling hungry. Natural healthy fats will leave you feeling fuller and will help balance your hormones.
  5. High-fructose corn syrup and other processed sugars—These highly processed sweeteners will increase your blood sugar more rapidly and significantly than almost anything else. They will leave you with cravings for more sugar and will be stored as fat around your belly, while giving you very little nutritional value.

Mindless Eating

By | Healthy Snacks, Kids nutrition, Nutrition, Uncategorized

How many of you have found your self in a situation where at a gathering all there is to eat is unhealthy food? A while back I went over to a get together of a friend who just got back from overseas in the marines. It was great to see him along with some of my old friends. I went after a long days work. I had eaten my 4 small meals already and drank one of my protein drinks on the way there, because I new there wasn’t going to be much healthy food. When I got there I immediately started talking to my friend who I hadn’t seen in over a year.  At the same time I was eating whatever was in front of me. By the end of the 1.5 hours I was there, I had eaten 3 big pieces of pizza, a bowl of sweet chex mix, a brownie, and some canned salmon. I hardly even remember eating because I was so engrossed in conversation. I would estimate I consumed around 1300 calories plus my 250 calorie shake I had just drank before. That is nearing what some women’s calorie needs are if they are trying to lose weight!!

I had a meeting with a famous and well respected doctor from Aspen.  He has huge influence and connection within health insurance companies world wide. He wanted me to1 priced cancer be the fitness expert and use the Fit Moms For Life 6 Week Challenge as part of the solution to rising health care costs. He told me that there is massive change that is coming soon regarding insurance companies PAYING people to go on programs such as the FM4L Challenge. They will be able to clinically show reduction in disease risk and reduction in health care costs. Insurance companies will most likely start charging people more if they have disease indicators, don’t exercise on a regular basis, and eat a diet of processed foods. The shift is coming over the next 5-10 years, but how about you take a stand before your friends and family HAVE to, because they won’t be able to afford health care.

What’s really scary is by the end of this decade 70% plus will be overweight or obese, 100’s of millions will be on diabetes, heart disease, depression, and anxiety medication. Why the heck would we WANT or CHOOSE to a path like the one projected? There is a famous saying that goes something like, “When I find myself on the side of the majority, I know I am on the wrong side and need to change.” It is important that we become more concerned and self-conscious around those we love when it comes to making healthier choices in the foods we eat, the activities we do, and the thoughts we have.

I encourage you to be aware of EVERYTHING you put into your body. Keeping a food journal is a great help. Don’t feel like you have to clean your plate or your child’s plate. Just say no! Small changes make a BIG difference in the long run!
